Tesira front-panel indicators

This article describes the function and meaning of the front panel indicators on Tesira devices.


LED indicators

The Tesira SERVER, SERVER-IO, and TesiraFORTÉ each have five LED indicators on the front panel. Each Tesira expander has four LED indicators. The meaning of each indicator is described in the table below.
