What does the wrench error or tool light represent on a VAMP 321 arc flash mitigation relay?

Issue: Wrench error or Tool light is on

Resolution: The wrench error light can represent several issues:
1. Arc sensors or I/O modules are programmed in the VAMP321 but are not present.
2. Internal fault in the VAMP321 itself

This will provide you with a Self Diagnositc, Code 1 and Code 2. Most commonly the Code 1 and/or Code 2 provide useful information as to the cause of the fault.
For instance if Code 1 displays Arc Sensor this indicates that a previously programmed sensor isn't present or it is faulty. To determine which press the up arrow until Arc is selected. Press the OK button then scroll down until you see Clear at this point press the "i" button > press OK > this will request a password the default password for edits is 2 > once this is entered press OK.
