How the Gilbert® Super Self-Diagnostic
Dot Matrix LED EXIT™ Works

Beeps To Alert Low Battery

The Low Battery Beeper is similar to those in home smoke detectors in that it is designed to demand attention when the battery is low. Each hour, our circuit compares battery voltage to a precision voltage reference. If low, a yellow "Replace Battery" indicator lights and the beeper sounds once each hour (for approximately 30 seconds).

LEDs Brighten and Flash
w/ Smoke Detection Connection

The Gilbert® Self-Diagnostic will also connect to any smoke detector which has a set of normally-open relay contacts. Then, when the smoke detector goes into alarm mode, the LED EXITTM will flash (significantly brighter) and beep for as long as the alarm mode lasts.
