GRI's recessed switches are most versatile for a variety of applications, but the switch and magnet installed, should never form a "T" configuration.
When the application calls for a wide gap switch, using a bare magnet, keep in mind that GRI's bare magnets are installed with the painted end towards the switch as they are polarity sensitive. When protecting steel doors, use the GRI PA-75 collars with our wide gap switch.
G.R.I.’s 3/8” recessed press-to-fit contacts can be installed in many different positions to accommodate a variety of applications. The switch and magnet can be mounted end-to-end within an imaginary arc around the switch, or parallel to the switch. When the application calls for a wide gap switch, install the painted end of the bare magnet facing the switch as they are polarity sensitive. The switch and magnet should never form a “T” configuration when installed.
If this series is to be used in a steel door application, G.R.I.’s PA-75 adaptor should be used with a wide gap switch
