I really like the idea of having a resistor at the farthest. For a window surface mount sensor, how many resistors do we need? And is it also going to be 2.2k ohms?
I was thinking about zones while I was driving home yesterday and glad you brought up what I was thinking.mustangcoupe said:Yes they are at the furthest end of the wire(sensor end) and you only need one resistor per zone... so if you plan on putting 2 windows on the same zone then you should only need one. remember to document which window has it and keep that documentation in the cabinet with the control.
It's hard to tell from your line drawing but are you really EOL protected? If you were to short the wires one foot away from window 1 what happens?mustangcoupe said:I wired mine as follows....
-------window1-------(wires connected in M1 panel)---------window2--resistor------
I noticed this statement in the specifications of that sensor:v1rtu0s1ty said:I need your help folks. I just finished ordering this window contacts for my testing
Can I connect the 2200 ohms with this? By the way, is this product a normally close or open?
