The Connector List Name field of the AirLoopHVAC object can take a ConnectorList object name, but the ConnectorList object does not accept AirLoopHVAC:ZoneSplitter or AirLoopHVAC:ZoneMixer objects. What is this field for?

Connectors are used in dual duct air loops which are built using multiple branch objects. See example file DualDuctConstVolDamper.idf. As far as I know, only a Connector:Splitter can be used in an air loop. A Connector:Mixer is not supported.

AirLoopHVAC:ZoneSplitter and AirLoopHVAC:ZoneMixer objects are used in AirLoopHVAC:SupplyPath and AirLoopHVAC:ReturnPath.
