7.5.1 Importing Several Data Records to an Existing Structure
for Reports
If, for example, several properties are assigned to a customer, and
if the associated measurement data have been saved as separate
data records, these can be imported to the currently loaded customer structure, one after the other, and read out as a full report.
This is advisable, for instance, if several inspectors perform measurements on different objects at the same time, or if a single
inspector measures an object at different times, and the data
need to be jointly assigned to a single customer or property.
As a prerequisite for correct assignment of the data to the objects
during data import, the structures must coincide. In each case,
data are imported which are located on the same hierarchy level
under the selected hierarchy.
General Procedure
➭ Open the desired structure.
➭ Select the respective object from the ETC Explorer with the
left mouse key (click briefly).
➭ Briefly click the right key. A submenu appears.
➭ Click “Open” with the left key.
➭ Select the data file.
➭ Repeat this procedure as often as necessary until all of the
data for the object, customer or property are included in the
currently open structure.
➭ Save the structure together with the imported data and generate the report.

ETC Explorer (structure)
Object Area
The ETC Explorer is located in the upper left-hand pane of the main
window. The structure which is currently in use is displayed here.
Individual objects can be selected with the mouse.
A structure always consists of the “Database” root node (starting
point). Each structure can have one or more sub-nodes, or it can
be empty. Each node, except for the database node, represents
an icon and a type designation such as customer, building, distributor, RCD, electrical circuit, earth electrode, machine, operating equipment, level, property, device, room, ESD element, measurement or documentation text.
You can switch back and forth between ID number and Designation
within the tree structure after clicking ETC Explorer in the View menu
(F5)
The tree structure is closed each time switching between the view
options takes place, and must then be reopened.
The size of the ETC Explorer area can be changed as well (see
“Adjusting Work Areas and Table Columns” on page 10).
The number of all objects which are used in the ETC Explorer can
be queried in the help menu: Help > Number of objects.
The icons which appear at the left can be selected in the object
area in order to create structures in ETC.
The scope of possible objects and their icons depends on the
respective test instrument or memory adapter (“Optimized for:”),
as well as the selected profile of the respective report generating software.
Depending on the initial position within the tree structure, only
hierarchically feasible object types are displayed.
The object area can be displayed or hidden after clicking Object
Area in the View menu, or directly by clicking the >> and << symbols. The size of the object area can be changed as well (see
“Adjusting Work Areas and Table Columns” on page 10).
Connection Status (connection via USB)
The type designation of the connected device is only displayed in
the footer at the bottom right for devices with USB port. In the
case of devices without USB port, “No connection” appears here,
even if connection has been established via an RS 232 port.
GMC-I Messtechnik GmbH
Action Area
Newly created structures and test sequences can be transferred
to the test instrument, and structures set up in the test instrument’s flash memory can be loaded to the PC via the action area.
Transmit structure Transmits a structure, including measured values and
+ values
documentation texts, to the test instrument.
Transmit
structure
Transmits a structure without measured values and
documentation texts.
Read out
structure
Starts a read-out of data from the measuring instrument (with
measured values and documentation texts).
The report wizard can be started here as well, which assists you
in preparing a report.
The scope of possible actions depends on the respective test
instrument or memory adapter.
The action area can be displayed or hidden after clicking Action
Area in the View menu, or directly by clicking the >> and << symbols. The size of the action area can be changed as well (see
“Adjusting Work Areas and Table Columns” on page 10).

Device Optimization
Details of a Sample Device (electrical operating equipment)
Device optimization is located at the
top edge to the right of the toolbar and
displays the currently selected device.
After selecting a given instrument,
device-specific adjustments are made
to the ETC configuration, i.e. the object
and action areas are correspondingly
adapted.
This menu option is not used to switch
back and forth between several different devices which may be simultaneously connected to the PC. After clicking “Optimized for:”, a dropdown menu
appears which contains a list of
devices supported by ETC (see below).
Measurements / Documentation Texts Area
Note
Only one test instrument may be connected to the PC at
any given time.
Nor is ETC capable of simultaneously managing data from several
different test instruments.
Data read into ETC are deleted when the test instrument is
switched. Be sure to save data which has been read in to a file
before connecting another test instrument.
After the measurement results have been successfully read in
from the test instrument or the memory adapter, they appear in
this area as a list in the measurements tab.
The measurements area (including a measurements tab and a
documentation texts tab – see below) can be placed at any
desired position after clicking Results Area > Top/Bottom/Right/Middle
in the View menu (the default setting is bottom).
The column width used in the measurement results list (in the
measurements tab) can also be changed as desired. As is also
the case with Microsoft Excel, click between any two table headings and then drag the borderline to the left or right.
Details/Properties Area
The display in the detail view changes depending on which object
is selected in the ETC Explorer (left mouse click, see item 1
below).
The ID number and the designation are always displayed, and
object-specific values (attributes) of the selected object appear
below them if available.
Values for the ID number (item 2) and the designation (item 3) can
be changed directly by entering text.
Object-specific values can be entered either directly, or they can
be selected from a dropdown menu depending on the available
entry window. For certain attributes such as nominal current, new
values can be added and selected (5) with the help of the selection list wizard (see section 9).
Adjusting Work Areas and Table Columns
Note
Changes must be completed by clicking the “Accept”
button, otherwise they’re discarded.

When the cursor is moved to the borders between the work
areas, or between adjoining cells in the top line of a table in the
measurements area, the cursor is changes to a double arrow.
When the double arrow appears, press and hold the left mouse
key and drag the border to the left or right, or up or down.
Optional text columns for measurements can also be shown or
hidden and arranged in any desired order (see “Configure columns” in the header row).

Devices with Integrated Database for Structures
A complete distributor structure with data for electrical circuits
and RCDs can be created in test instruments from the
PROFITEST MASTER and METRISO G1000+/METRISO XTRA series. This
structure makes it possible to assign measurements to the electrical circuits of various distributors, buildings and customers.
Structures which have already been set up in the test instrument
can be loaded to ETC and saved along with the measured values
at the PC, as well as supplemented and documented if applicable.
Alternatively, the same structures can be more conveniently set
up in ETC first, and then transferred to the test instrument for
future measurements.
Devices without Integrated Database
For all other devices which are not equipped with their own database, structures can only be set up in ETC. This assures sensible
allocation of the read out measured values, which makes postprocessing, annotation and report generation possible.
Creating a Structure and Setting Up Object Parameters
1 Create a new structure: click the “New Structure” icon.
2 Alternatively, a sample structure included as a default feature
can be opened and modified:
–
Small structure (1 customer, 1 building, 1 distributor)
–
Medium sized structure (1 customer, 2 buildings,
2 distributors)
–
Large structure (2 customers, 2 buildings each, 1 or
2 distributors)

12.5.1 Rules for Barcode Generation
First of all, the special content for the barcodes has to be defined
in the ETC selection list (from barcode defects to barcode reporting),
see figure 6 to figure 8. To make the barcodes of the barcode
selection list available in the test instrument, they have to be
transferred to the PROFITEST MASTER subsequently (button Transmit
selection lists).

12.8.1 Loading, Editing, Saving and Transferring Test Sequences
for Applications with the PROFITEST MPRO/ MXTRA
The test sequences are created at the PC with the help of ETC
software, and are then transferred to a PROFITEST MBASE+/
MTECH+/MPRO or MXTRA test instrument.
Measurement parameters are also configured at the PC. However, parameters can be changed at the test instrument during
the test sequence before the respective measurement is started.
When the test step is started once more, the parameter settings
specified in ETC are loaded again.
Note
ETC does not subject the parameters to a plausibility
check. As a result, the newly created test sequence
should be checked at the test instrument before it’s permanently added to the database.
Limit values are not currently set in ETC, and have to be adjusted
during the automatic test sequence.
Accessing the Menu for Editing Test Sequences
In order to be able to edit existing test sequences (e.g. add test
steps or change parameter settings), they first have to be loaded
to ETC.
There are two ways to do this:
• ETC: Extras → Test Sequences → Load Test Sequences
(from the “test_sequence_xyz.seq” file)
or
• ETC: Device → Test Sequences→ Receive Test Sequences
(from the connected PROFITEST MBASE+/MTECH+/MPRO or
MXTRA test instrument)
Test Sequence Operations With and Without Sequence Editor
If the same sequence of tests will be run frequently (one after the
other with subsequent report generation), for example as specified in the standards, it’s advisable to make use of test
sequences.
Automated test sequences can be compiled from manually created individual measurements with the help of the test sequence
function. A test sequence consists of up to 200 individual steps,
which are executed one after the other.
Fundamentally, differentiation is made amongst three types of
individual steps:
• Note: Test sequences are interrupted when a pop-up message
is displayed for the inspector. The test sequences is not
resumed until the messages has been acknowledged.
Sample Message Before Insulation Resistance Measurement
“Disconnect the device from the mains!”
• Visual inspection, testing and report generation: The test sequence
is interrupted when a passed/failed evaluation is displayed.
The comment and the results of the evaluation are saved to
the database.
• Measurement: same as individual measurements with the
PROFITEST MBASE+, PROFITEST MTECH+, PROFITEST MPRO and
PROFITEST MXTRA test instruments with storage and parameters configuration
28
Test sequences can currently be created for the
PROFITEST MBASE+/MTECH+/MPRO/MXTRA and SECULIFE SR test
instruments. However, creation and use of test sequences is differentiated as follows:

Saving Test Sequences in ETC to the PC
We recommend saving default test sequences, as well as edited
and new test sequences, to the PC or to other data storage
media using the desired filename (test_sequence_xyz.seq) with
the help of the following menu command: Extras → Test
Sequences → Save Test Sequences. Data loss resulting from certain administrative operations is prevented in this way (see following notes).
Due to the fact that only up to 10 test sequences can be transferred to the test instrument, no more than 10 test sequences
should be saved to any given file.
Test sequences which have been saved to a file can be reloaded
to ETC at any time by clicking “Extras → Test Sequences → Load
Test Sequences”.
Sequences can be further edited by clicking
“Extras → Test Sequences → Edit Test Sequences”.

test instrument: “Device → Test Sequences → Send Test
Sequences”.
