    How to use View Point Status to see the current state of a point.

    View point status is an important part of troubleshooting used to determine the current state of input points.  It is used when troubleshooting troubles to determine the cause of the trouble. For example if the point is missing or faulted in an open or short state which may be programmed for trouble.

    1. Ensure the command center is at idle text.

    2. Press the ESC/MENU key to enter the command menu. Press NEXT until the VIEW PT STATUS function is displayed.

    3. Press ENT. The display shows AREA X ## (where X ## = the area number and the number of points to view).

    4. Press ENT. The display shows PT ## XXXXX (where XXXXX = the type of point). Press ENT again to see the current condition of the point. The display will show one of the following:

    PT###-SHORT-HW which indicates that a hard wire (HW) point is shorted.

    PT###-OPEN-HW which indicates that a HW point is open.

    PT###-NORML-HW which indicates that a HW point is normal.

    PT###-MISNG-HW which indicates that a HW point is missing.

    5. Continue to press ENT to see the type and condition of each point in the area.

    6. Press ESC to return to the area’s idle text.
