4.2 Test Program Handling
4.2.1 Storing Test Programs
After a test program has been created using the program editor application it will be ready for use with your AT series tester. The diagram below shows a potential connection scheme for use with a single tester and two PCs.
Before program requests or uploads may be completed, the tester must be configured for server mode. See Chapter 2, section 2.3.3.
There are two ways that you may transfer test programs into the server file store:
- By selecting ‘Upload Program’ from the editor ‘Tester’ menu .
This will transfer the current program from the editor to the server. The program will be sent via the tester's serial link if present, by direct file transfer if both applications are resident on the same PC or by network file transfer if a network link is present and is identified to the server.
- By floppy disk or direct network transfer.
You may copy program files directly into the program directory used by the server application.
IMPORTANT: When a program file is copied to the server and a file with the same name is already resident within the server, the incoming file will replace the previous file.
