6.1.2 Other Data Inputs
To give you the greatest ergonomic flexibility, at certain points in the tester's menu system, as well as the keyboard, other methods of entering data are possible:
The ‘Run’ input of the ‘Remote Port’ on the tester's rear panel can be optionally connected to a footswitch.
At both the Top Level menu and in Execute Mode (see below), the footswitch may be used as an alternative to pressing the first (uppermost) soft-key.
A barcode reader connected to the ‘Barcode Port’ on the tester's rear panel can optionally be used to input text data, such the name of the test program, or the transformer batch or serial number.
