Testing a Zone Processor
Listed below is the primary functionality to test when using a Zone Processor, as well as suggestions on how to perform the testing:
- Confirm that the Zone Processor input sources are available and audible in every zone. You will, of course, need to wait until your hardware is installed before testing this functionality.
- Confirm that the Zone Processor channels appear (with the expected display names) on all DRs that are linked to the Zone Processor's Priority Selector blocks. You can test this functionality within Halogen by opening the DR's Selector properties (click the DR's Selector control in the Control palette) and viewing the DR selection list. After your hardware is installed, you can double-check the selection list displayed on the actual DRs.
- If the Zone Processor's Level block is linked to a DR or other remote device, confirm that the link is working correctly. You can test this link before and after installing hardware.
- Confirm that the Zone represented by this Zone Processor appears in the Zones section of the Paging Manager.
