The model PB-2 is a
spring loaded momentary 2" square, exit button, with bi-color illumination, mounted
on a stainless steel single gang outlet box cover. The SPDT contacts switch when the
button is depressed and return when it is released. The contacts are UL listed with 10 AMP
capacity. The red lamp is an LED mounted above the button and the green lamp is
incandescent, illuminating the button itself.
The red and green lamps can be individually operated
according to the needs of the installation. The PB-2 can be used for momentary release of
fail safe or fail secure electric locks. If interfaced with a release hold timer, it can
provide for timed release of electric locks. It may also be used to input a REX (request
to exit) signal to a card reader system. We recommend that the local building or fire
safety authority be consulted prior to using exit buttons for door egress. They may
require a "no special knowledge" exit device.
The PB2 comes with a retrofit backbox and color coded
hookup wires installed. The backbox includes an installation template. This exit button is
not recommended for use with low voltage systems or when using solar panels. For low
voltage systems a non-illuminated button is recommended.
