Testing controllers

What is the best way to test controllers? Is it best to test each one by themselves or to link them together to test them?



Thanks

For me, it's always easier to test a controller one at a time. The only thing you can't test when doing it one at a time, is if the controller is passing the data to the next controller. I find it is easier to manage one one controller with 16 sets of lights attached, rather than more controllers and multiples of 16 sets of lights (depending on how many controllers you'll hook up).

That being said, once the controllers are in the yard in November, and the lights are attached, I run a test sequence that cycles through every channel, turning them on and off, just so I can see that they are all plugged into the right channel and that they are functioning properly.
