    • Send file to Flash Technology for manufacturer troubleshooting
  • Configuration:
    • Multiple device configurations can be set
    • By default, no password to access system
    • User can enable multiple levels of password protection to restrict access to the config page, mode override and LI commands
      • Changes are made in the Login Settings page

FTS 370x event log

Event Log:

FTS 370x Diagnostics – Beacon lighting alarms

Beacon# A2D Lighting Alarms:

  • Recommend replacing the surge board with any flashhead core board replacement.
  • Replace Flashhead if:
    • Voltage is high and current is low (Failed open)
    • Voltage is low but current is normal (Failed short)
  • Replace Core Board if:
    • Voltage High and current High
    • Voltage High and current Normal
    • Voltage Normal and current High or Low
    • Voltage Low and current High
    • Voltage Low and current Low

FTS 370x Diagnostics – Beacon failure example

Beacon Failure Example:

Replace Flashhead:

  • Red 1 string current is low, voltage is high
  • Red string 1 has failed
  • Replace the flashhead

FTS 370x Diagnostics – Beacon failure example

Beacon Failure Example:

Replace Flashhead:
