Step 14. Hold the magnetic actuator in place and mark the location of the top and bottom openings.
Step 15. Mount the magnetic actuator using the supplied screws. If necessary, use shim material to position the magnetic actuator. Open and close the door to be certain the LED extinguishes when out of range and lights when in range.
Step 16. Remove the cover housing from the baseplate.
Step 17. Determine the mode of operation and set the jumpers along the bottom of the circuit board. For this installation, jumpers 1-5, and 8 and 9 are up. Jumpers 6 and 7 are down to have an alarm/entry delay of two minutes.
Step 18. Place the locking arm into the housing, making sure to run the strobe wiring through the opening and under the tab. It is easier to unplug the strobe wiring and reconnect when the locking arm is in place.
Step 19. Slide the mortise cylinder into the housing cover. Attach the provided lock nut. Secure using the provided wrench.
Step 20. Position the large switch on the circuit board to align with the opening in the baseplate cam assembly. The cam assembly controls the operation of the switch.
Step 21. Mount the housing cover onto the baseplate by first hooking the housing cover onto into the clip at the bottom. Then tilt the housing cover onto the baseplate. The housing cover will snap into place.
Step 22. Install the tamper screw, the longer #8-32 screw into the lower left side hole. Installing the tamper screw closes the tamper switch and changes the PG21MSS from the Magnetic Alignment mode to the normal “Standby mode.”
Step 23. Install the remaining three short #8-32 screws to secure the housing cover.
Step 24. Close the door.
Step 25. Use the key to power the unit. The red indicator will enter the window on the cover, and the LED will flash if the magnetic actuator is in range. A tone will sound indicating the unit is armed.
Step 26. Open the door. Keep the door open for more than two minutes to test the time delay. The siren alarm will sound after the two-minute time delay expires.
Step 27. Use the key to turn off the alarm by turning the key counter-clockwise until the red indicator on the front of the cover disappears.
Step 28. Close the door and power the unit using the key.
Remember: The magnetic actuator must be in range in order to arm the unit.
The Alarm Lock PG21MSS has a Form C relay rated at 24VAC/DC at 1Amp that can be connected to a fire/burglary panel.
The 9-volt battery is designed to provide approximately two years of normal operation. When the battery is in normal operating condition, the LED will blink once every four hours. During low battery condition, the unit will chirp and the LED will flash about once a minute.
For hardwired applications, the PG21MSS can be powered using an Alarm Lock model PP-100 or similar power supply providing 9-12VDC at 300mA. In this configuration, the 9-volt battery will provide backup during power failure.
