How to Perform Range Confirmation Test for Echoflex Sensors

Question

How can I verify the signal strength between my Echoflex sensor and its linked controller?

Description

The Range Confirmation Test is available for both occupancy/vacancy and light sensors. This test will measure the signal strength between the sensor and its linked controller.

 

Things to note before performing this test:

  • The sensor must be linked to only one controller at the time of the test.

  • All wireless signal repeaters must be disabled for the duration of this test. 

  • Any sensor must be at full charge and/or have its battery installed before running this test.

Steps

  1. Step 1: Prepare the site for configuration:
    1.  The circuit you are configuring must be powered on.
    2.  You will need direct access to the sensor [Teach] button.
  2. Step 2: Press and hold the [Teach] button for 6 seconds. A green LED will blink to indicate you are in the tests menu.
  3. Step 3: Press and release the sensor [Teach] button once again, the LED color will change to amber OR blue depending on the sensor (reference your installation guides as needed)
  4. Step 4: Press and hold the [Teach] button for 6 seconds to execute the range test. All three LED’s (red, green and amber/blue) will blink for 1 second, followed by the sensor indicating the linked controller signal strength status for 2.5 seconds. Reference the table below for indication of the signal strength.
  5. Step 5: This test will repeat every 4 seconds and expire after 50 seconds or you can press and hold the [Teach] button for 6 seconds to exit Range Confirmation Test mode.
