You can test the contact closures needed for Start Record and Trigger/Event in SLICEWare before arming. In the Real Time tab you will see Start & Trigger boxes. When the SLICE base EVENT (Trigger) or START (Start Record) input is closed, the corresponding box will change from green to red.
Note: SLICE Base firmware 00M3 or later is required for this function. Check your firmware version under the Help tab of SLICEWare
