Soak Testing


Recommended Posts

hi,

 

How you would describe what is the Soak Test? And how the days are related to it? For example in Honeywell Galaxy there is option to set days from 1 to 14days.

Would be intesting to understand the whole concept of it.

 

Tank you

soak test - an intruder alarm zone will not generate an alarm for the duration of the soak test just log' display it as a fault 

 

eg- you've a warehouse with DT900 it false alarms...  you've checked the cables & the voltages blah, blah....

 

you reckon it might be the detector or it might be the vermin

 

you pop a new detector on & place it on 14 day soak test, if does not FA in the next 14 days it becomes a intruder zone on the system again with no more action to take

 

if it fails the soak test "soak failure" will be on the display & when the alarm FA'd in the middle of the night nobody got called out...

Soak test is used for testing a circuit, for example a detector activates and you see no environmental reasons for the activation, you can put the circuit on soak. It will log activations but it wont alarm. So when you return check the log if it hasnt activated you can take it off soak

It will also drop out of soak back into the system after the pre programmed time if no activations are recorded, iirc activations reset the timer but I may be wrong with that. 

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
