Structure and operation of the sequence editor
The sequence editor consists of three parts:
1. Top-left window: List of the available sequence steps: This shows the sequence steps that can be used to create the sequence, depending on the connected devices and type of sequence (IZY/device sequence).
2. Bottom-left window: Configuration of the sequence step: The configuration and parameterization options for the selected step are offered here.
3. Right-hand window: Display of design progress. This section shows a list with the current sequence progress.
The sequences and/or the individual sequence steps may only be created by a qualified electrician or under the supervision or instruction of a qualified electrician by means of the sequence ­editor.
GMC-I Messtechnik GmbH assumes no liability for sequences created by unqualified persons!
Applying line voltage to the test socket of a SECUTEST or SECULIFE test instrument as well as a function test are only permitted if the DUT has passed all safety test steps beforehand! Depending on the safety class of the DUT, this means that visual inspection, protective conductor resistance and insulation resistance measurement must have been passed successfully.
When creating the sequence steps, please observe that the limit values entered always comply with the currently applicable standard!
Procedure to create a sequence
Select the menu “SEQUENCES”.
Create a new sequence by selecting .
Enter the following parameters: SEQUENCE NAME, TEST TYPE, STANDARD and FOR DEVICE, and then select “ADD”.
The new sequence is added to the table.
Save the last settings .
Mark the sequence that you want to edit.
Open the sequence editor .
Select a sequence step from the step selection window.
Move it to the design progress window by drag-and-drop. Now you will see all options to configure the selected step in the configuration window. This step will be shown in red lettering and the relevant fields will be marked with an error symbol until the step has been correctly configured. The sequence step is completed by filling out these fields. Now a new step can be added to the sequence by drag-and-drop. In this step sequence, the following operations can be executed in the design progress window:
Save the test sequence by selecting .
Functions of the toolbar in the DESIGN PROGRESS window
Save the test sequence
Cancel editing
Delete test step: The selected test step is deleted
Move the selected test step upward
Move the selected test step downward
Back to the sequence manager
Manage attachments (add, display and delete a file/photo)
This window is a list, so it is subject to the functions of the list view. The list symbols are also enabled in the toolbar; refer to “Lists”. These functions apply only to the list view.
