The IPD-BAT has LEDs labeled Network, Signal, Aux, Status on the Top Right of the Board.
Network LED (Flashes Red):
- 1 Blink - Indicates the device is not getting an IP Address from the modem or router.
- 2 Blink - Indicates the device is having trouble getting Network access typically due to DNS Issues on the customers side.
- 3 Blink - Indicates the device is having trouble getting Network access to ipDatatel. Commonly blinks directly after "2 Blinks".
- 4 Blink - Indicates there is a problem with the ipDatatel Network. Contact email@example.com right away.
- 5 Blink - Indicates the BAT is not connected to the panel. Check the Keybus Wires.
Signal LED - Blinks when a signal is in the process of being transmitted.
Aux LED - Will blink randomly while connected to the panel. Typically used in the firmware upgrade process. When the LED blinks twice, that is how you know the firmware upgrade is completed.
Status LED - LED Pulses when there is communication between the BAT & Panel. Will not pulse on DSC panel until a signal is being transmitted.
In addition to the LEDs on the IPD-BAT there are 2 LEDs located at the bottom right of the board next to the RJ-45.
LED Left of the RJ-45: This is considered the "Link" Light which indicates it is connected to a Modem or Router. Also called the 10/100 LED.
LED Right of the RJ-45: This is considered the "Activity" Light which shows traffic from the Modem/Router to the BAT.
NOTE: Link & Activity LEDs do NOT mean the device has working Internet Connection. If the Activity LED is on while the Ethernet is un-plugged, it can be dis-regarded. A power cycle should correct this.
