Request to Exit Switch is built into the device to detect when someone attempts to exit. Applying less than 15 pounds to the push pad when the device is armed will cause this switch to start an irreversible alarm cycle.

Nuisance Alarm – When a Chexit is located in a public area, it can be desirable to limit false alarms. If the Nuisance Audible and Nuisance Delay options are set to off, the device will go into alarm as soon as the push pad is touched (when armed). Turning the Nuisance Delay on will require the push pad to be pressed for 2 seconds before the Chexit goes into alarm. If the Nuisance Audible and Nuisance Delay are both on, the alarm will sound as soon as the push pad is pressed, but the alarm sequence will stop unless the push pad is held for 2 seconds or more.

Alarm – A set of relay contacts (rated 1 ampere, 24 VDC) are provided to give external alarm indication. These contacts close when the device is in an irreversible alarm condition (If Nuisance Audible is enabled, they will not close until the push pad has been held for more than 2 seconds). These contacts can be used to drive a horn, lamp, or other indicative device.

Key Switch – The Key Switch provides the means to arm, disarm, or reset the Chexit. The key can be removed in either the Arm or Disarm position. In cases where the key switch is not used for controlling the device, a blank cylinder can be used.

Indicator Lamp – The status of the Chexit can be determined by the Indicator Lamp. A masked bezel design provides wide angle viewing in any lighting condition. When the lamp is off, this indicates the device is disarmed and is functioning as a normal exit device (no delay). A continuously on lamp indicates the device has just been armed and as soon as the selectable rearm timer expires, the device will arm. A slow flashing lamp indicates the device is armed. A fast flashing indicator lamp indicates the device is in alarm.

Internal Horn – Whenever the device is in alarm or the push pad is pressed the internal horn will sound. The volume level of this horn exceeds 85 db at 6 feet. The user can select whether or not this horn sounds during a fire alarm condition.

Door Position Input – An external door position switch can be connected to the Chexit. Doing this gives added security to the opening and is recommended. If a door position switch is used, it will cause the alarm? to sound if the door is not closed when the device is armed; it will sound the alarm if the door is forced open
while the device is armed; it will provide anti-pass-back by cutting short the rearm time.

External Inhibit Input – This optional input is provided to allow remote override of the Chexit in the armed condition. It also allows remote reset of the Chexit in an alarmed condition. Typical device connections include card readers, wall-mounted key switches, or a remote security console. This input is controlled with a Normally
closed switch (open = disarmed).
Fire Alarm Input – This input disables the Chexit immediately upon a fire alarm. The building’s fire alarm system should provide normally closed contacts which open on alarm.
Internal Auxiliary Lock – The Auxiliary Lock is engaged when the Chexit is armed. The locking mechanism is specifically designed to hold securely even when the exit device is struck with forceful blows. The mechanism will also release upon command irregardless of the force applied to the push pad. An override spring prevents damage to internal components when more than 75 pounds of force are exerted on the push pad.
