Check and correct on the spot. This will help ensure your customer is off to a great start and you'll avoid having to make multiple visits!
✅Apply the silver serial number label
The silver serial number label helps us support you and must be applied somewhere visible once installation is complete, such as on the face of the Auditor or on the rail near the Auditor.
To ensure the Auditor performs as it should, use onboarding to check signal strength when you're onsite. Fit an extended-range external antenna when required.
✅Mark CT's and cables with white and black markers
When you're routing up to six CT cables through boards and conduits, you can save time and increase your precision by marking cables and CT's as you go.
