Are LIMs self-testing and what is the default test ?

Issue:
Feature of LIM

Product Line:
Medical Products

Environment:
IGD, IG6

Cause:
Self-testing

Resolution:
None of the legacy series A,B or C analog LIMs are self-testing or checking .  In contrast the IGD and IG6 digital LIMS are self-calibrated and is self-testing.  A "RECALIBRATE" message displays for about 30 seconds during the self test.
The default is once per hour.  It will go into a self check, but it does not take the place of pressing the test button
once a month.  This does not check all the parameters required by NFPA99.  The test button does the self test but
the audio and visual alarms.  It must makes sure the internals are working properly 
We still recommend doing this every month.
