Test Set
Interrogation Mode: The Test Set is temporarily installed in place of your E2A master. The Test Set polls your remotes and displays alarms on a connected PC. If you are having issues with your monitoring system, but it functions in Interrogation Mode, you know that the problem is with your master. This mode can also be used to test the wiring of a RTU (Remote Telemetry Unit) before the master is online.

Responder Mode: The Test Set is temporarily installed in place of your E2A device (network element or remote) and will send sample alarms when polled by your master. If you are having issues with your monitoring system, but it functions in Responder Mode, you know that the problem is with your remote.

"I purchased the test set to isolate alarming issues. We often get alarms on an RTU (Remote Telemetry Unit) that don't appear on the monitored equipment. We sometimes miss alarms that didn't appear on the RTU (Remote Telemetry Unit). The test set allows us to see the alarms that the equipment is reporting as well as simulate alarms into the RTU.

The simplicity of the test set allows us to send it to a field technician with little setup and instructions that can be given over the phone. Isolating the fault in alarming allows us to ship only the equipment that needs to be replaced."
