  • Field Unit LED flash patterns

    Here is a reminder about what the lights on the field unit mean.

    Both the indicator LEDS and alert sounds can be turned off through the USB configuration thumb drive as well as interactively by the operator in cases where the additional lights and/or sounds might be distracting to an event (such as for concerts or theater work).


    The flashing pattern of the lights gives information about the state of the units, as well as its connectivity to the base radio at the computer. The following table describes the flash patterns.

    Flash Pattern Meaning
    Solid Green The operator has set a PIN code on the unit to arm it, and it has not been entered yet. The unit is in SAFE mode and cannot be armed, even from the computer. Solid green indicates that it is in contact with the Base Radio at the computer.
    Alternating Red / Green (default) The unit does not have a PIN code, and is always ready to be armed from the computer. However the unit is currently disarmed, and the firing circuits are disabled. Slowly alternating between red/green indicates that it is in contact with the Base Radio at the computer.
    Solid Red The unit is armed and ready to fire. Firing circuits are enabled and firing voltages are ready to fire at the next command to that unit. Solid Red indicates that it is in contact with the Base Radio at the computer.
    Slow Green Short Pulse Similar to "Solid Green" above, but the unit is not currently seeing a Base Radio (e.g. the control computer may not be turned on yet).
    Alternating Red / Green Short Pulses Similar to "Alternating Red / Green" above, but the unit is not currently seeing a Base Radio (e.g. the control computer may not be turned on yet).
    Slow Red Short Pulse Similar to "Solid Red" above, but the unit is not currently seeing a Base Radio (e.g. the control computer have been powered down). After 5 minutes of not seeing the Base Radio, the unit will automatically disarm.
    Fast Green Pulsing The unit is in Local Continuity Testing mode. When in continuity testing mode, even if the unit was armed, it will be disarmed for the operator to do continuity testing from the unit. While in this mode, no commands will be accepted from the computer at all for safety reasons. When Local continuity testing mode is exited, the previous arming state (and display pattern) will be restored.
