1.3.4 Creating Programs - The Editor
The test program is simply the list of tests that you wish to apply to your transformer.
Clearly individual transformers will each have their own program, but as an example, a typical program for a three winding switch-mode power supply transformer could be as follows:
The Test Program Editor supplied with your tester allows you to create such a program simply and easily without any need for software programming skills. Each test required for the program is selected from a list of ‘available tests’ by clicking with the mouse. The test details (such as the transformer terminals, test conditions, and pass / fail limits) are then entered into a form fill dialogue box.
Normally, the Editor is used with the Auxiliary Port of the Tester connected to a spare Com-Port on the PC:
Pull-down menus in the Editor would then allow you to download the program to the tester, so that it may be run for the purposes of evaluation and modification.
