activating an audible siren tone. To
initiate the SI-TEST cycle, set the
rotary knob to the RAD position. Now
press and release the MAN button. As the siren is tested, its
diagnostic indicator will turn on steady for about 1.5 seconds if
no problems are detected. If the indicator flashes, or does not
light at all, a problem with either the siren, speakers, or wiring
has been detected. Check the wire connections of the failed
speaker and repeat the SI-TEST. If the speaker fails to test
again, have the siren inspected by a qualified technician.
WARNING: Installed speakers are tested by generating an
ultra-high frequency tone through each speaker. Although these
tones are inaudible to humans, be sure there is nobody within 5
feet of the speakers when SI-TEST is running.
DIAGNOSTIC INDICATORS: This unit has two diagnostic indicators on the front panel which are used to indicate fault conditions with your siren system. The table below lists the type of
fault and the indicators response. If the indicator is on steady
while a tone is in use, this implies that there is no fault with the
associated speaker output.
