If your CEW is equipped with an SPPM battery back, Signal Mute Mode can be enabled to NOT alert Axon cameras to record. This may be useful when performing a function test.
- With the safety in the down (SAFE) position, press and hold the selector switch until the MAIN MENU displays.
- Press and release the selector switch until the LF setting is highlighted.
- Press and release the selector switch and “SPPM MUTE” will be displayed on the CID.
- If the safety switch is placed in the up (ARMED) position while this screen is displayed, the CEW will enter Mute Mode for the session. In Signal Mute Mode, an inverted SPPM icon will be displayed in the upper left corner of CID. See Signal Mute Mode for more information. The device will return to normal operation after the safety switch is placed in the down (SAFE) position. Any pending 30-second transmissions will be discontinued. See SPPM Transmission in Safe Option for more information.
SPPM Transmit in Safe Option
The CEW can be configured to remain powered after the safety switch is shifted to the down (SAFE) position, which allows the SPPM to finish the transmission of any pending status for the full 30 seconds. The CID will continue to display the SPPM icon and display a message “DO NOT REMOVE BATTERY.” If the safety switch is shifted to the up (ARMED) position while the device is still sending a Signal transmission, the 30-second timers for each status event will be restarted. Do not remove the SPPM from the CEW until the device has finished its Signal transmission and the CID goes blank. To enable the Transmit in Safe feature, the agency must configure the CEW through the Axon Evidence website.
