Main modules : Module for stationary objects : Data export function
Data export function
 
The export function is used to transfer data to a test device or a file. The function is found under “EXPORT” in the menu “STATIONARY OBJECTS” . Selecting this function opens the export assistant.
 
 
The export assistant asks whether the data should be exported to a connected test device or an XML file.
 
TO THE TEST DEVICE: here you can choose between connected devices.
OBJECTS, DEVICE CATALOGS and SEQUENCES are each selected by default.
TO AN XML FILE: Touch the field “SAVE AS” to select the file in which you wish to save the data.
 
 
Take note!
Export deletes all data on the connected test device. You are therefore shown a warning before export.
 
Then the export filter is started by selecting “EXPORT”.
 
Export filter
The export filter consists of three filter menus:
EXPORT FILTER OBJECTS
EXPORT TEST DEVICE CATALOGS
EXPORT SEQUENCES
 
When more than one filter menu is selected, the user switches between the views using the buttons “NEXT”, i.e. “BACK”. By selecting the “EXPORT” button in the toolbar, the selected data and the corresponding customers and locations are transferred to the connected test device. The current operation is shown during export. Users are shown a message once all data has been transferred successfully.
 
 
Select and filter objects
The export filter OBJECTS consists of a two-part view. The upper half contains the two tree views, while the lower half shows a list of objects selected. Activating the checkboxes in front of the elements in the tree views is used to make a preselection based on customers and locations. Here, users can select the objects in the electric tree that they wish to transfer, which they then narrow down by selecting locations in the location tree. Additional filters in the lower list can be applied to the element selected in this way (refer to “Lists”).
 
 
Select and filter test device catalogs
The catalog selection consists of a two-part view.
The various catalogs are shown on the left-hand side, while the matching catalog entries are found on the right. There are different methods of selecting the catalogs. A checkbox can be used to make a selection and export the catalog entries. Filters are available to restrict the selection.
