Modes of operation

Interrogation Mode: Allows an alarm device to be interrogated at the field or on a bench. The alarms in the device are quickly relayed to the technician. The test set allows the technician to see equipment alarms without having to call up the control center and more importantly do to so before telemetry links are established. Interrogation mode also enables controls to be issued to devices and maintains communications and error statistics.

Responder Mode: Allows your PC to emulate the alarm output from a device. This is useful for testing transport & central databasing before equipment is installed. Responder mode allows you to send alarms individually or in predefined test patterns. Responder software also shows which controls are being received from the alarm center.

Monitor Mode: Bridges across the transmission path between the alarm master and the alarm remote, and displays the protocol traffic and alarm data. Excellent for monitoring in-service equipment.
