AEROCONTROL Product catalogue What does AEROCONTROL mean? The AEROCONTROL (magnetic switch) from SIEGENIA was developed to supplement the mechanical intruder resistance provided by hardware for windows and French doors by adding an electronic safety device. Here, it acts as a signal-transmitting component within an intruder alarm system (EMS). Depending on the version, the AEROCONTROL can also take on other tasks, such as air conditioning and heating control when the windows are open. The two functions can also be combined with each other. Magnetic switch functionality Every AEROCONTROL is a magnetic switch which is used in combination with a magnet. Here, the field of the magnet is used to open contacts in the magnetic switch (reed switches) or to keep them closed. The type of contact depends on the magnetic switch version. A change in the magnetic field due to mechanical movement of the magnet leads to a change in the switching state in the magnetic switch. The reed switch consists of ferromagnetic switching reeds. The reeds are fused hermetically sealed in a glass tube. The two switching reeds overlap with a minimum distance to each other. If an appropriate magnetic field acts on these reeds, they move toward or away from each other. The contact area of the switching reeds is coated with a metal (e.g. rhodium or ruthenium). These hard contact surfaces are important for achieving high switching capacities. The service life lies between 10 million and 1 billion switching cycles, depending on the load and switch. Depending on the version, the magnetic switches are furnished with 4-pin or 6-pin permanently installed switching lines (control wires). All of the magnetic switches specified in this manual are equally suitable for timber and PVC windows. During assembly, a distinction is made between concealed and surface-mounted magnetic switches. Installation requirements All AEROCONTROL products are tested to make sure they are in perfect working order before they leave our premises. In addition, these products are subjected to high loads and continuous switching tests by the VdS. Every instruction in this technical documentation must be observed to avoid any damage and customer complaints resulting from incorrect installation. Before each work step, please read the associated section of this documentation carefully and thoroughly and comply with the sequences specified. The AEROCONTROL may only be assembled and installed by the following persons: Assembly: Window fitter Installation: In the case of VdS-certified systems, installation must be carried out by a certified alarm system installation company. All VdS certificates are available on request. 6 Last update: 07.2014
