PROFITEST – first steps : Creating a tree structure
Creating a tree structure
To create test objects for the PROFITEST ..., navigate to the menu “STATIONARY OBJECTS” and select the function “INPUT/CHANGE/LIST”. There you will find a screen consisting of three windows arranged one above the other. You can enlarge and reduce the size of the windows by moving the upper, i.e. lower border that is marked by two short horizontal lines.
Upper window
– Left-hand side: E-TREE (electric tree)
– Right-hand side: Location tree
Central window: Detailed view of the master data for the test object
Lower window: List view of the objects
Electric tree
The stationary objects, machines or facilities are created here. Unlike with portable devices, IZYTRONIQ enables the creation of complex tree structures. In this regard, PROFITEST and IZYTRONIQ have a broad variety of electrical sub-objects that can be freely selected and introduced to an electric tree structure. In addition, a main object may possess another similar main object within this structure (machine has a machine, or a facility has a facility). The following objects can be transferred with PROFITEST:
Electric circuit
Measurement point
Equipotential bonding rail
Equipotential bonding conductor
Ground connector
Take note: The objects possess an internal hierarchy, which means that not every object can be placed below each other object. The objects must always be assigned to a customer.
Location tree
This shows the locations to which electrical objects from the electric tree can be assigned.
Active window
Each window is activated by selecting it. The active view is always shown with a green border.
Within the border, the active sub-function is indicated by a bold green bar at the top.

Creating a new object
The following steps must be performed to create a new object:
1. Activate the electric tree.
2. Select the element under which you wish to create the new element.
3. Navigate to “Create new element” in the toolbar on the right-hand side of the screen.
Alternatively, you can display the toolbar by right clicking on the mouse after selecting the element, and then select your operation by left clicking on the mouse.
4. A pop-up now opens in which you select the correct element type “NEW ELEMENT”.
The pop-up always shows all possible elements that can be created under the element shown in each case.
5. Select the number and ID of the new element.
The ID can also be assigned automatically, provided this function is enabled.
6. Select “CREATE”.
7. You can create additional elements by following the same instructions.
8. Complete the operation by selecting “CLOSE”.
9. Do not forget to select the uppermost symbol in the toolbar to save the new structure.
The same procedure is applied to create locations in the location tree.
Test objects can now be assigned to the locations by drag-and-drop.
Not every object can be assigned to a location.
Adding master data
You can add the master data once you have created all elements in the tree view. To do this, select the chosen element in the tree and you will be shown all of the data available for the respective element in the “Master data detailed view”. Select the matching field to add the data for the element.
Do not forget to select the uppermost symbol in the toolbar to save the new master data.
Take note!
Some fields are compulsory fields and must be completed in order to save the master data. Where this kind of field is left empty, it is marked by a .
