PowerG 2-way Wireless Magnetic Contact Device
with Hard-wired Input Installation Instructions


The PGx945 Series is a supervised, 2-way wireless PowerG
magnetic contact device. The device includes a built-in reed switch
and a separate N.O., N.C. or E.O.L programmable auxiliary hard-
wired input for use with other hardwired sensors (use only UL/
ULC fire/burglary listed sensors).
The reed switch and the auxiliary input behave as separate
transmitters, although they trigger the same RF transmitter.
Removing the cover activates the tamper switch. If configured,
LED lights only when reporting alarm or tamper events. Built-in
link quality indicators reduce installation time by eliminating the
need for the installer to physically approach the control panel.
Low-Battery Detection
The PGx945 includes low-battery condition detection. When this
condition is detected a trouble message is transmitted to the
compatible receiver/control panel. This will provide visual
identification of the unit that requires a battery change. For UL
commercial burglary installations replace battery yearly.

Gap Separation
Mounting the Device
It is highly recommended to attach the transmitter to the top of the
door/window on the fixed frame and the magnet to the door or
window. Ensure that the magnet is located not more than 6 mm
(0.25 in.) from the transmitters marked side.
Note: Once the cover is removed, a tamper message is transmitted
to the receiver. Subsequent removal of the battery prevents
transmission of tamper restore, leaving the receiver in permanent
alert. To avoid, press the tamper switch while removing the battery.
The unit has an optional back tamper switch under the PCB. As
long as the PCB is seated firmly within the base, the switch lever
will be pressed against a special break-away base segment that is
loosely connected to the base. Be sure to fasten the break-away
segment to the wall. If the detector unit is forcibly removed from
the wall, this segment will break away from the base, causing the
tamper switch to open.
Note: For UL Residential Fire and Commercial Burglary
installations, the use of the back tamper is mandatory.
Note: Adhesive tape not to be used for EU Market.
Mounting with screws
Note: For UL Residential Fire and Commercial Burglary
installations, the use of the mounting screws is mandatory.
1. With the cover removed, flex retainer and remove PCB.
2. Mark & drill 2 holes in mounting surface.
3. Fasten base with 2 countersunk screws.
4. Mount the magnet base with 2 supplied screws.
5. Attach the magnet to the magnet base.
Mounting with adhesive tape
1. Peel away the release liners from the two strips of double-
sided adhesive tape and attach to the device and magnet.
2. Align the device with the magnet according to the location
marks and fasten the device and magnet to the mounting sur-
Auxiliary Input wiring
1. Connect the auxiliary sensor contacts across the auxiliary
input terminals.
2. If the auxiliary input is defined as a Normally Closed (N.C.)
type, series connected N.C. sensor contacts must be used
exclusively. An E.O.L. resistor will not be required.
3. If the auxiliary input of the is defined as a Normally Open
(N.O.) type, parallel connected N.O. sensor contacts must be
used exclusively. An E.O.L. resistor will not be required.
4. For E.O.L. supervision: Normally Closed (N.C.) sensor con-
tacts can be used. A 47 k E.O.L. resistor must be wired at
the far end of the zone loop.
Note: For UL installations, the device connected to the initiating
circuit must be located in the same room as the transmitter.
The drawing below illustrates a N.O. and N.C. alarm circuit with
E.O.L. resistor.
Note: An alarm message is transmitted once the loop is opened or
short circuited.
Note: For UL/ULC installations connect only UL/ULC listed
device to the auxiliary wiring input. Only one device shall be
connected to the input of each RF transmitter.
UL985 short range RF transmitter application
Model PG9945 is also UL985 listed as a short range RF transmitter
for use in Residential fire applications in conjunction with UL
listed mechanical heat detectors. The transmitter shall be installed
using provided screws and the back tamper shall be enabled. The
heat detector shall be connected to the wired input of the RF
transmitter device in the same room and within 3 ft. The External
Input [001][03] shall be set to [Y] and the Zone EOL [002] shall be
set to [02] Normally Open. The Supervision [001][04] shall be
enabled [Y] and Reed switch[001][02] operation shall be disabled
[N]. When enrolling the device in the compatible receiver/control
panel combination set the zone definition to type [08] in order to
transmit a fire alarm when the external input is activated. An
example of compatible initiating devices that could be used in this
type of application is the System Sensor UL listed 5600 Series
Mechanical Heat Detectors (only models that have self restoring
rate of rise sensors). Refer to the compatible devices installation,
testing, and maintenance instructions. Test the self-restoring rate of
rise models using a hair dryer or heat gun. When testing the ROR
element, to prevent the activation of the fixed temperature element,
the heat source must not exceed the fixed temperature rating of the
detector. Detectors shall be installed as per NFPA72 and/or the
local authority having jurisdiction.
Note: Ensure the RF transmitter is used in its intended
environmental conditions.

Instructions d'installation du détecteur de
contact magnétique sans fil bidirectionnel
PowerG à entrée câblée


Le PGx945 Series est un dispositif à contact magnétique, sans fil,
bidirectionnel, supervisé PowerG. Le dispositif contient un
commutateur à lames intégré et une entrée câblée auxiliaire
programmable N.F., N.O ou E.D.L., à part à utiliser avec d'autres
détecteur câblés (utilisez exclusivement des détecteurs anti-
intrusion/anti-incendie homologués UL/ULC.).
Le commutateur à lames et l'entrée auxiliaire se comporte comme
des émetteurs distincts, même s'ils déclenchent un émetteur RF
identique. Le retrait du capot active le contact anti-sabotage. S'ils
sont configurés, les voyants lumineux s'allument uniquement en
cas de signalisation d'alarme ou d'événements de sabotage. Les
indicateurs de qualité de liaison intégrés réduisent les temps
d'installation en supprimant la nécessité de l'installateur d'être
physiquement à proximité de la centrale.
Détection de niveau faible de batterie
Le PGx945 possède une fonction de détection de niveau faible de
batterie. Quand cet état est détecté, un message de problème est
transmis à la centrale ou au récepteur compatible. Une signalisation
visuelle est ainsi assurée pour l'unité qui a besoin d'un
remplacement de la batterie. Pour les installations anti-intrusion
commerciales UL, remplacez la batterie tous les ans.
