When this LED shows steady green, it means that the system is
powered by mains electricity and the batteries are fully charged.
Flashing green means that system is powered by mains electricity and
the batteries are in the process of charging. This will usually be the case

the plug or a power failure.
Steady amber indicates that the system is drawing its power off the
batteries, i.e. there is no mains electricity. As soon as mains electricity
fails, an alarm sounds.
Flashing amber indicates that the battery pack is about to fail.
Off shows that the batteries are disconnected because the circuit breaker

disconnected from the mains.
Steady green means that the system is on and powered.

persons tampering with the front panel buttons and gaining access to the
interior of the system.
Security is enabled within the System Management Application (see the
SMA User's Guide, the Event Manager User's Guide or the on-line help within

bay door at the front of the machine serves as the security token:
If the door is closed and has been locked with the key, the screen is

deactivates the security alarm.
