The model PB5E is a spring loaded momentary 2" diameter, exit button, mounted on a stainless steel single gang outlet box cover. The DPDT contacts switch when the button is depressed and return when it is released. The contacts are UL listed with 5 AMP capacity. The PB5E 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 such as Securitron's Touch Sense Bar.
