The model EEB2 is a spring loaded momentary 2" square, exit button, mounted on a stainless steel single gang outlet box cover. The model EEB3N is a spring loaded momentary rectangular exit button, mounted on a 1 3/4” stainless steel narrow stile plate. Both units incorporate a timer set for 30 seconds. The EEB2 and EEB3N have a 3 Amp switching capacity. These units are intended only for release of a magnetic lock from the inside of a door. When the button is pressed, the lock releases for 30 seconds. If pressed again during the 30 second lock release period, the unit will “retrigger” starting a new 30 second lock release period. These buttons are specifically intended for installation on access controlled egress doors as described in the BOCA code. A motion detector, such as Securitron’s model XMS, is the primary means of releasing a magnetic lock on the door. The button is employed as a backup means of releasing the lock in case of a problem with the motion detector. Note that the exact time will vary with temperature but it will not be less than 30 seconds.
The EEB2 comes with a retrofit backbox, fasteners and color coded hookup wires installed. The backbox (Securitron part number 560-10200) includes an installation template. If a different box is used, be sure it is at least 2 1/2" deep to accommodate the switch. The EEB3N is intended for direct mounting on a narrow stile aluminum door frame. Accordingly, no backbox is supplied (fasteners only). The frame must be routed out sufficiently to accommodate the EEB3N components.
The unit will operate on 12 VDC or 24 VDC. Full wave rectified DC (transformer + bridge rectifier) is acceptable. It draws no current when at rest and 28 mA @ 12 V or 38 mA @ 24 V when releasing the lock. The black plastic box that is affixed to the rear of the mounting plate houses the timing electronics. Identify the hole in the side of the box with a plastic jumper block partly protruding from it.
