With the safety in the up (ARMED) position, pressing and holding the Arc switch displays a Warning Arc discharge across the front of the TASER 7 CEW.
With a Warning Arc display, the user may deter a subject without having to deploy a cartridge. A Warning Arc can be accomplished with the TASER 7 without removing the live cartridges. Pressing the Arc switch does not deploy the TASER 7 Cartridges even if the TASER 7 CEW is loaded.
Use the Arc switch, not the trigger, to employ the Warning Arc display. Pulling the trigger will deploy a loaded cartridge.
