We thought you all would get a kick out of these pictures taken on a job site. They are prime examples of how NOT to install a Door Loop or Power Supply. Photos courtesy of Sean Hamilton.

I make sure to take note of every Tech Support call I get and I’ve compiled a list of the the most frequent questions asked. I’ll be posting them every few weeks as a resource to you all. Here’s a few questions & answers about the PS2 Power Supply I wanted to share with everyone.
Q1. What is solid state design and why is it important?
A1. Solid state eliminates the need for mechanical relays and is a reliable electrical system.
Q2. Can I wire several devices to fire together off of one input from a single access control device?
A2. Yes, the PS2 can fire two devices when a jumper is used from the positive of input 1 to the positive of input 2.
Q3. Does your PS2 power supply come with a fire link?
A3. Yes, the PS2 is equipped with a fire link to make wire to any fire alarm system easy.
Q4. Does your PS2 come with a battery back-up option?
A4. Yes, if ordered as a PS2BB, it will come with wiring kit to allow for battery back-up installation. As with all our battery back-up power supplies batteries are not included.

Here’s a little preview of something we’re working on at the moment – a modification of a european lock in the French embassy.
I really love my job as Tech Support and the fact that I get to talk to a lot of you makes it even better. It’s our conversations that push me to know about each and every product we carry very intimately – ha. So I wanted to talk a little about the PM/PWM technology.
There seems to be questions about that product line all too often. So here’s a list of the most frequently asked questions:
Q1. Can I use this power module on any panic device?
A1. An application chart is available on our website. Click here to view.
Q2. Can I use this power module with any power supply?
A2. Must be used with a 24VDC regulated power supply.
Q3. The unit is plugged in, but not operating. Is it broken?
A3. Most likely it’s not broken. The PM/PWM unit is polarity sensitive; switch Red and Black wires.
Q4. The PM unit fires, but does not hold. Why is it doing that?
A4. The solenoid may be out of adjustment or if in use with a rod device application, the rod may be bottoming out before the solenoid is seated.
I’ll do my best to have more questions & answers in each and every email newsletter. Thanks for dropping by and feel free to leave a comment or question below and I’ll reply as soon as I see it.

You’re just in time to witness the death defying feat of an old PS2 BB. Suspended 10 feet in mid-air, dangling above a sure death, this brave Power Supply laughs in the face gravity.
On a more serious note…WTH?!? People, this is not the way to install a Power Supply…any brand Power Supply. Thanks Bryan Nicholas for supplying these photos.
