Discuss Aritech CS450 "Trouble" light on keypad in the Security Alarms, Door Entry and CCTV (Public) area at ElectriciansForums.net

I have a Aritech CS450 which has been working fine for a number of years. All of a sudden the "Trouble" light came on the keypad.
I checked the logs and it showed "Fuses", so I checked the fuses - all ok
did a walk test - all ok
Tried an engineer reset - no different - light still on


The system seems to work as normal. i.e alarm trips if set and external sirens go off etc.

Anyone have any other ideas as to what my problem may be?
Thanks in advance.....

Have you cleared the logs?
Thanks for the prompt reply... How do I do that? In the user manual it just says :-
"The Engineer Log can store up to 150 events. It is
not deleted by an arming."
and
I can't find any reference to clearing this log in the user manual.
The operator log shows nothing as "stores up to 10 alarms and
faults that occurred since the last arming." and there have been no faults/alarms since the last arming.

Has the battery been checked and also the system voltage to the battery?
