Field Test (Game Specifics)

Test the functionality of the field and preparedness for the event matches.

Field Test

Field Test is used as an initial basic test of the field electronics. Use this interface to verify that all the LED Displays, Team Lights, and scoring hardware are connected. Field Test is also used to confirm the network connection to the Audience Screen and to the Internet. After Field Test, a full Match Test should be used to confirm all elements are behaving as expected in-match. In FMS Off-Season, the Field Test screen is not accessible.
