4.2.5 Grouping Test Programs
Programs that are used on the transformer tester at similar times may be grouped for convenience. For example, a number of transformers all based on the same bobbin may be tested at the same time.
When a program group has been defined it may be downloaded to the tester. Each of the parts within the group will then be available for ‘local’ use. The parts will be stored in non-volatile RAM. No programs are lost after power-down.
The following dialogue is used to configure groups and may be located under the Setup menu in the Server:
Double-clicking on any part in the left hand list will add it to the right hand, grouped list.
When you have completed editing a group you will see it added to the available group list. To transfer the group to the tester it must be requested by the tester. See Chapter 2 of the manual for details.
IMPORTANT: The group function does not store a new copy of each part when a group is defined. Only reference is made to the part being in a group. DO NOT delete a part after including it in a group other wise the part will be lost, and the group rendered invalid.
