Why is my AIS showing solid green, blinking yellow, and solid red lights on power up?

Solid green, blinking yellow, and solid red lights indicate that the cable connection between the field sensor and AIS has a problem.

On power up the field sensor checks communications to the AIS. If the field sensor detects a problem, the AIS it will add an additional solid red light during the preflight checks. Please perform the following checks to the field sensor, AIS, and cable.

  • Remove the cable and closely inspect the connector pins on the AIS and field sensors.
  • Closely inspect the connector pins on the cable.
  • Reattach the cable to the field sensor and AIS. You should feel a slight click when inserted.
  • Power on the sensor and verify that the solid red light is no longer present during the preflight check.

If you still experience a solid red light during the preflight check, please contact support@slantrange.com and provide the following.

  1. Did the sensor experience any hard landings or crashes?
  2. What is your sensor model and serial number?
  3. Please attach a log file using the instructions at the end of this page. https://analytics.slantrange.com/HardwareGuide/3p-toolbox-and-calibration.html
