Micro TPASS® Repeater is a small, lightweight,
portable signaling device that operates
interactively with Grace Confined Space and
Firefighter In-Command® Emergency Signaling
and Accountability Systems.
By receiving and re-transmitting Grace radio
commands, the Micro TPASS® Repeater
enhances the overall system performance over
open distances or within indoor environments
where poor radio propagation is encountered.
Micro TPASS® Repeater is used on both the
Grace legacy Radio-G and Radio-H platforms.
The Micro TPASS® Repeater will only function
on one of these platforms and will only function
on its respective radio platform. Exercise caution
and understand this limitation if attempting to use
the Micro TPASS® Repeater in situations where
mixed Radio-G and Radio-H platforms are used.
The Micro TPASS® Repeater is omni-directional,
very easy to operate, and is the same size as the
TPASS®3. NOTE: Micro TPASS® Repeater IS
NOT a PASS (Personal Alert Safety System).
Micro TPASS® Repeater Operation
To turn the Micro TPASS® Repeater ON, remove
the Accountability Key. An escalating series of
audio tones will be heard indicating the Micro
TPASS® Repeater is ON and operational.
● Micro TPASS® Repeater transmits an ON message.
● Two Red LEDs flash when messages are
received and retransmitted.
● When the Accountability Key is removed during
operation, the Micro TPASS® Repeater will be
silent and two Red LEDs flash when messages
are received and retransmitted.
● When the Accountability Key is replaced during
operation, the audio tone is activated and two
Red LEDs flash when messages are received
and retransmitted.
● The Micro TPASS® Repeater retransmits
check-in, change of status, Alarm and
Evacuation signals.
To turn the Micro TPASS® Repeater OFF, replace
the Accountability Key and momentarily press
both side buttons simultaneously. De-escalating
sweeping audio tones will be heard and LED
activity will cease.
Micro TPASS® Repeater Find Function
By using In-Command® Full Crew or In-Command®
First-In Fire Fighter Emergency Signaling and
Accountability Systems, it is possible to select all
or individual Micro TPASS® Repeaters and send
an EVAC command. The EVAC command acts
as a find function on the Micro TPASS® Repeater.
The Micro TPASS® Repeater will emit a special
audio tone and activate Red flashing LED’s as
a visual indicator. This feature is a tool to collect
the Micro TPASS® Repeater after use on the fire
Reset or turn the Micro TPASS® Repeater OFF to
clear the Find Function.
Mode Selection
Micro TPASS® Repeater Maintenance
● Remove Accountability Key to automatically

● Turn OFF Micro TPASS® Repeater by
replacing the Accountability Key (or Charging
Key) and then pressing both side buttons
Micro TPASS® Repeater requires minimum
maintenance and will provide years of service.
Please Observe These Guidelines
● At the end of each use, clean unit with a damp
cloth. DO NOT use cleaning solvents.
● After each use, inspect unit for signs of
physical damage. Remove unit from service
if physical damage is observed.
● Store Micro TPASS® Repeater in a dry, well
ventilated area consistent with battery
manufacturer requirements. Recommended
storage conditions are: 50o to 77oF (10o to
25oC) at no more than 65% relative humidity.
● Units contaminated by chemical or radioactive
materials must be disposed of or decontaminated
in accordance with all applicable regulatory
● DO NOT mark or apply paint to Micro
TPASS® Repeater.

Battery Charging: 120 VAC (standard) or
12VDC (optional adapter required) may be used
Battery Charging Time: 6 to 8 hrs
Battery Charging Cycles: 500
Product Life: Approximately 3 to 5 years or
longer, depending on fitness for use. Fitness for
use is best determined by the end user through
a proper inspection and maintenance program.
Product should be retired from service when
damaged or returned to Grace Industries for
evaluation and repair if applicable.
To reduce risk of serious injury or loss of
life, ensure Micro TPASS® Repeater is fully
operational by testing and inspecting the unit
prior to use. Use of a Micro TPASS® Repeater
maintenance and training program including
recharging exhausted or low batteries is
required for safe and proper use.
After charging the Micro TPASS® Repeater,
always test by affixing the Accountability Key
and listening for the transmit and receive “chirp”
sounds that signify the presence of Grace radio
traffic. To generate Grace radio traffic, use the
reset function of the TPASS® or SuperCELL®
SC500; or select the Micro TPASS® Repeater
and initiate an EVAC command from the
Accountability System. Exercise the same
caution as explained in the recognized proper use
of Grace legacy Radio-G and Radio-H platforms.
If proper operation of Micro TPASS® Repeater is
questionable, remove unit from service and
contact Grace Industries for assistance.
