Much thought has gone into the
actual operating requirements of
the tester. The need to have
ease-of use has been a major
consideration to make the whole
testing process quick and
simple. The logically constructed
menus for configuration and
operation are supplemented by
single key selections for
commonly needed functions, and
the pre-configured test suites for
service tests definitely save time.

means that virtually any location
