If the monitor has not gotten a signal from a sensor since power-up, the PSI/Temp values when it gets to that position in the rotation will just be blank. It will not alarm on a sensor if it has never received data (the blank readings would be your indication) even if its supposed to be there.
The flow-thru sensors send data every 2 minutes (or immediately if a fast-leak - i.e. rapid pressure decrease - is detected). I assume that after a given number of multiples of the 2 minute period since the last signal, it will alarm but I don't know how many.
I know this because when mine stopped reporting due to corrosion shorting out the battery, there was no low battery indication - just an alarm and blank info for that sensor. It happened just as I was pulling into a service center for fuel only about 2 hours out from home (after driving through salty-wet road spray the whole time). After fueling up, I turned off the monitor and back on to see if it would recapture that sensor and it never did - it remained blank (without alarm) all the way to my first camp stop in Marietta GA where I cleaned and replaced the battery and it was good again.
