Installation (testing) ease. The SENS-RDR receives an infrared signal from the i3 detector to read its sensitivity. As a result, there is no need for a physical connection to the detector. Also no voltmeter or multi-meter is required, to further reduce testing time. The SENS-RDR is designed for either hand-held use or may be connected to a threaded extension pole, to eliminate the need for a ladder when measuring the detectors sensitivity.
Intelligence. The SENS-RDR provides specific information related to the sensitivity of the detector. Rather than displaying a voltage reading, the SENS-RDR indicates the detectors sensitivity in terms of percent per foot obscuration. This eliminates the added step of cross-referencing a voltage reading to a sensitivity range.
Instant inspection. The SENS-RDR is equipped with an LED and sounder to indicate when the device has completed reading an i3 detector. Upon completion, the LCD screen displays the detectors sensitivity as well as one of three text status indications: GOOD, SERVICE, or REPLACE. Additionally, the SENS-RDR provides a low battery indication when its two AA alkaline batteries need to be replaced.
