Startup error codes and LED flash sequences on IO cards:




The IO card status LED will be lit (red) during card initialization and self-test (constant red for 3-15 seconds).

If the initialization and self-test are successful, the LED will be dark, and stays dark during normal operation.



If initialization or self-test fails, the LED will flash quickly, indicating the type of error that occurred.

The error code can be used to diagnose the problem further.


The flash sequence is repeated 3 times (3 sequences of N flashes).

Depending on the nature of the error, the system may then reset the card and retry initialization.
