Testing ALERT Transmitters

Testing the ALERT2 Transmitter

  1. Arm the ALERT2 Transmitter by turning the cap clockwise until the cap is closed tight. Failure to close completely may allow water to enter electronics compartment which will damage the unit.

  2. Immerse the ALERT2 Transmitter in a bucket of water, or wet fingers and touch both metal probes on Transmitter. One of the metal probes is located inside the black rubber boot.

  3. A green LED will light up, indicating transmission to the ALERT2 Receiver has begun. The green LED will continue to flash in intervals until the Transmitter is unarmed. The Receiver will produce an audible sound once transmission has begun.

    If it doesn’t, make sure the cap is firmly screwed shut. If the cap is firmly screwed shut but the green LED does not flash, nor the alarm sound from the Receiver, contact Emerald Marine Products.

    If the green LED does flash but the ALERT2 Receiver does not sound the alarm, make sure the Receiver is turned on. If the power is on but the Receiver fails to alarm (a red LED on front panel will also light up), contact Emerald Marine Products

  4. ALERT2 Receiver will continue to sound its Alarm until turned off with the power switch.

  5. Disengage the ALERT2 Transmitter alarm transmission by unscrewing cap until Green LED light stops flashing. Make sure unit is wiped dry if unscrewing the cap completely. (In the event of changing batteries).

  6. If testing additional ALERT2 Transmitters, power off the ALERT2 Receiver and repeat procedures 1-5.

Testing the ALERT418 Transmitter

  1. The ALERT418 Transmitter is in active mode at all times. There is no need to take additional steps to arm the unit.

  2. Immerse the ALERT418 Transmitter in a bucket of water, or wet fingers and touch both metal probes in-line with 'Reset' button.

  3. Flashing green and red LEDs followed by white LEDs indicate active transmission to the ALERT2 Receiver. The Receiver will produce an audible sound once transmission has begun.

    If only red LED flashes, replace batteries.

    If white LEDs fail to flash, contact Emerald Marine Products.

  4. ALERT2 Receiver will continue to sound its Alarm until turned off with the power switch.

  5. To stop transmission, press 'Reset' button on the Transmitter.

  6. If testing additional ALERT418 Transmitters, power off the ALERT2 Receiver and repeat procedures 1-5.
