What is the Normal Status During Operation of the LED Lights on the MK3S+ Einsy Board?

I assembled my MK3S+ back in January and it has been printing like a dream, with no issues.  I've just become curious as to the meaning of the LED light on the Einsy board that illuminates when it is powered on (a solid red LED),  or when it is in operation (a blinking red LED).  Is this normal (I presume so) and what does it signify?  A search of this forum and Google didn't reveal much about the various LED's on the board.   Can anyone else verify they are seeing similar on their MK3S/+ when powered up and/or in use?

Completely normal

IIRC one is lit when the Nozzle heater is on, and one when the bed heater is on.

Think its documented somewhere, ill see if I can find it

Tank you very much!

@clarmrrsn

Thanks so much for your reply.  Glad to know it is normal. 

Yes please do let me know if it is documented.  I couldn't find anything at all about it.

Cheers, Alan

Mh, here is the board-layout: https://github.com/ultimachine/Einsy-Rambo/blob/1.1a/board/Project%20Outputs/Designators_Einsy%20Rambo_1.1a.PDF

And here the schematics: https://github.com/ultimachine/Einsy-Rambo/blob/1.1a/board/Project%20Outputs/Schematic%20Prints_Einsy%20Rambo_1.1a.PDF

Looks like LED2 is extruder heating and LED 6 is bed heating...

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

So red is the color of a working board?  I just built my Prusa i3 mk3s+ and I'm getting 2 green LEDs at the very top inside the Einsy box.  My grounds all seem to be in order but I can't figure out what this all means.  I've been badgering many forums and no real reply just yet.
