Configuring input metering using the display

You can use the meter’s display to configure the input metering channels.
NOTE: It is recommended you use ION Setup to configure input metering, as setup parameters that require text entry can only be modified using ION Setup .
  1. Navigate to Maint > Setup .
  2. Enter the setup passcode (default is “0”), then press OK.
  3. Navigate to I/O > Inp Mtr .
  4. Move the cursor to point to the input metering channel you want to set up, then press Edit.
  5. Move the cursor to the parameter you want to modify, then press Edit.
    NOTE: If Edit is not displayed, it means the parameter is either read-only or can only be modified through software.
  6. Modify the parameter as required, then press OK.
  7. Press the up arrow to exit. Press Yes to save your changes.
