Servicing the LowPro
To remove a beacon from the Category II bracket, lift the latch and
release the pressure from the beacon. The beacon will now be able to
slide upwards out of the bracket.
It is not anticipated that the LowPro
cleaning or, rarely, replacement.
Brackets are a key part of the overall beacon system. They hold a
beacon ready for deployment while preventing false alarms.
NOTE: Whenever a beacon is returned for service, it must be
accompanied by the bracket.
Self-Testing the beacon
The RLB-36 beacon may be self-tested as is warranted, up to a
maximum of sixty times in the five-year life of the battery, or once per
month for the life of the battery. Self-Tests can be performed randomly,
however, ACR recommends that you perform the Self-Test on a once per
month schedule. Do not exceed sixty (60) Self-Test cycles limit in the
five-year life of the battery, to conserve the battery for emergency use.
The functional Self-Test is initiated by momentarily
lifting the Activation Switch to a vertical position and
holding it in this position for at least one second and at
most four seconds. A beep indicates the initiation of
the Self-Test sequence. Self-Test will check battery
capacity and perform five functional test sequences as
described in the digital display Appendix.
The last green LED and the message SELF-TEST PASS on the display
indicate a successful test. If any of the individual tests fail during Self-
Test, there will be two beeps and a red LED flash, with the name of the
test that failed and an "X" on the display. Self-Test will discontinue at that
point. See Appendix D for digital display information.
NOTE: The "beeps" are a very high-pitched tone that some people may
not be able to hear. When performing the Self-Test, you may follow the
messages on the digital display or you may count the green LED flashes.
