QOR Console Surface - Using Test Mode
This article describes the QOR-based console's self-test mode for the following consoles:
- 2001-00273 Radius Console
- 2001-00275 iQ Console
- 2001-00283 iQ 8 Fader Expansion Console
- 2001-00284 iQ 6 Fader Expansion Console + Phone
- 2001-00285 iQ 6 Fader Expansion Console + Options
- 2001-00290 RAQ Console
- 2001-00313 DESQ Console
Before we begin
Please take the time to read through this document before starting any work.
The QOR-based consoles have a built-in self-test for performing diagnostics on surface hardware. Disconnect all cabling and power from the unit before proceeding.
- Device Under Test (DUT): Console
- QOR Console Engine with CanBus cable
- Phillips Screwdriver
- Small needle-nosed pliers - or tweezers
Put the console surface in test mode
- Place the console on a table on a soft surface so you can access the underside/rear. Remove the eight screws from the bottom dress panel shown here.
- You will find the test mode jumper on the CPU board near the overbridge cable connector. Set the jumper to the TEST position. The center pin connects to the right-hand pin in TEST mode, as shown here.
- With the QOR powered off, connect the console to any CANbus port. Power up the QOR engine.
Turn the unit right side up and press all buttons. This illuminates the buttons and displays. Move the far left faders to an appropriate position to illuminate the buttons and displays.
Fader-0 movement controls the brightness of the panel buttons, while the Fader-1 movement controls the intensity of the displays. Slide each fader between its two positions, bottom to top, and observe the fader position value on the associated display.
The value expressed on the display is hexadecimal. At the lowest setting, the value should be 0020 (+/-35). At the maximum setting, the value should be 7FFE (+/-35).
Move Fader-0 to the maximum top position. Press each button once. When pressed, it will illuminate. With all buttons illuminated, slide Fader-0 to the bottom position. Observe that the brightness of all buttons changes to no illumination. Return Fader-0 to the top position, and all buttons will be fully illuminated. Press each button once more to turn them off.
Rotary Encoder Test
Each encoder is displayed in hexadecimal value on a display under the "Rt:" label. Two sets of encoders are displayed on a single display. Clockwise rotation will increment the value. Counter-clockwise will decrement the value.
Rotate each encoder clockwise and verify the correct value change in the associated display. Reverse rotation direction and confirm appropriate value change.
Each encoder has a button function. Pressing the encoder will result in a reported button press on all displays “Key#nnDN.” Press each encoder and verify button DN and UP state are reported.
The OLED displays to monitor during this test are outlined here:
Press Button 00 to invert the displays. Verify response. Press Button 01 to illuminate all pixels on the displays. Inspect displays and make sure there are no missing pixels.
Press buttons 06, 10, 1A,24 (the leftmost four ‘ON’ buttons). With each button press, the green LEDs to the right of the surface will illuminate. Verify all four green LEDs illuminate.
Exit Test Mode
Remove power from the QOR engine. Flip the console back over and move the test mode jumper back to its original position. Remove the CanBus cable and -attach the bottom panel. Then reattach the CanBus cable, and power the QOR engine back up.
