Operation Modes
  • When an alarm is produced, the beacon flashes, and the buzzer sounds. The buzzer is silenced by pressing the button, but the beacon light continues to flash as a reminder.  In the default mode the buzzer sounds again every 30 minutes until the condition is corrected.  When the alarm condition is over, the beacon stops flashing and everything resets automatically for the next alarm. (default mode)
  • After the buzzer has been silenced, a “snooze-alarm” feature repeats the alarming every 30 minutes until the alarm condition is corrected.  This is the default mode and can be disabled by setting jumpers inside the box.
  • Another operating mode is the tank filling mode” which alarms when a contact close is detected, but when the button is pressed, both LED and buzzer shut off.  When the contact close opens, the alarm rests so its ready for the next alarm event.
