How to Perform Walk Test on DS9400 Series & 7024 Series Fire Panels
How is a walk test ended?
Press the * key (Clear) button once to go back into Test Modes, then press the * key (Clear) button a second time to return the panel to normal.
To begin Walk Test press the TEST button then press 1 for Walk Test.
Walk Test allows a technician to manually alarm each point to ensure the detectors connected to a point report an alarm to the control panel. While in this mode, the LCD shows the system test status, and the trouble sounder sounds every 10 seconds. Outputs programmed for general alarm or fire alarm output, or outputs mapped to points using zones activate during Walk Test as points are alarmed and restored.
When selecting Walk Test, you have three output activation options:
- SHORT ACTIVE: 1-sec activation
- LONG ACTIVE: 5-sec activation
- NO ACTIVE: Outputs do not activate
As each point is alarmed, the outputs activate once when selected and power is reset. As each point is triggered, alarms and restorals are logged into the control panel's History Logger. When the point returns to standby, the outputs activate twice. The control panel attempts to reset points ten times to restore them.
Points remaining in alarm when exiting Walk Test will cause an immediate alarm.
