Signal Sidearm has four operating modes; Low Power Mode, Test Mode, Field Mode, and Mute Mode. The sensor should be in Field Mode during normal operations.
The sensor is “asleep” in Low Power Mode. We recommend keeping a sensor in this mode when not in use for an extended period of time, such as during shipping or when in storage.
- After the sensor is installed, press the button for 1 second to wake up the sensor.
The LED shows solid green and then blinks to indicate the sensor entered Test Mode.
If you do not continue with the steps under Test Mode in 30 seconds, then the sensor goes back to sleep.
