There are two ways to configure a switch to run an emergency test.
- Emergency Timer – used for single button/absolute input applications
- Custom Toggle with Start Duration or Function Test / Stop Duration test – best used for multi button applications (ie, start button, stop button)
The emergency timer will start a test and stop it after the duration you configure it for (if in duration mode – it only starts a function test). During the time that the test is ACTIVE, another press will stop the test. If the time is set to 0 – the test will continue until another switch press is heard. Once the test has completed, a further press will trigger another test.
If the emergency timer has NO target, the emergency timer will only start a test on any relays configured as emergency (including the master relay).
If the emergency timer has any DALI targets, the emergency timer will start DALI test on those targets AND any relays configured as emergency.
The emergency timer does not time function tests – if the user requires a low duration visual confirmation function test – the user should set up a duration timer with a low timeout.
For the Custom Toggle option, there are separate options for starting a duration test on DALI targets and Emergency relays. “Set EM relays ON/Set EM relays off” can be found in the list. These options do not have any time parameter – it is up to the user to conclude the test.
If the user requires a custom toggle EM relay ON/OFF switch – the target can be any target as it is disregarded.
- Setup a switch as type emergency timer- Target broadcast!
- Setup the relay (using the command line tool) to be an emergency relay.
- A function test will only call a DALI function test.
- To do a function test on NON-DALI products, use a duration test with a TIME
- A duration test with a time will call Start test at the beginning and stop test after the time.
- A reboot will be required to change the relay mode after using the tool
