Introduction
Welcome to PATGuard Lite, Seaward’s concise software program for safety record keeping. With its limited
functionality and minimal records, PATGuard Lite is easy and simple to use.
Easy upgrade options and record sharing with other PATGuard users is achieved through PATGuard database
compatibility across the range. While versatility is provided through the capability of processing data download
from most portable appliance testers currently available.
With easy to use and automated features associated with the acclaimed PATGuard style, PATGuard Lite is for
users who require a limited straightforward PAT record system.

Download
Downloading Test Results
Download is initiated from the Tools drop down or from the Download icon. Selecting either of these will cause
the Download dialog box to be displayed.
Figure 8: Download dialog box
Downloaded data can either be sent to the database for processing or saved as a file. The file is a copy of the Test
Results directly from the tester but saved in a file that can be opened by this and other programs.
Note
The Supernova, Europa and PrimeTest 300 tester series have two download formats; SSS and ASCII text (PATS).
As the SSS format contains all information and the ASCII text output is limited, this program will only accept data
in SSS format from these testers. The ASCII text output is for use with non-Seaward programs.
Download to Database
Ensure the Download to Database radio button is selected. Choose a tester from the Test Instrument drop down.
Select the appropriate serial port from the COM Port drop down.
Note
Only serial ports that are free and available to the program will be included in the COM Port drop down.
With the tester connected to the appropriate COM Port, select OK to commence the download. Initiate the
download on the tester. See the tester Instruction Manual on how to commence a download action.
Duplicate Test Results
During a download if more than one Test Result with the same Asset ID and Site is detected a warning message is
displayed to determine if the second and subsequent Test Results are additional Test Results for the same Asset or a
duplicate test. Selecting Yes to the question Duplicate ? will cause the second Test Result to be re-routed to a
specially created holding Site to be deleted or amended by the user. Selecting No will cause the second Test Result
to be appended to the first Test Result’s Asset record.
Download to File
Selecting Download to File will cause the following dialog box to appear.

Figure 9: Download dialog box – File
Enter a path and filename or use the Browse… button to choose a path available to your computer.
Some tester outputs require File Type set to txt as they output text ASCII data only. All current Seaward testers
have an SSS format and as this format contains all data it is preferred. For these testers ensure that the format is
SSS and set File Type to sss.
Choose a tester from the Test Instrument drop down. Select the appropriate serial port from the COM Port drop
down.
With the tester connected to the appropriate COM port, select OK to commence the download. Initiate the
download on the tester. See the tester Instruction Manual on how to commence a download action.
Downloaded files can be processed into any database (see Processing Files). Downloaded files are processed as if
the data was coming directly from a real-time download.

PATGuard Lite Files
Processing Files
Download files from other programs including PATGuard Work About can be processed into a new database.
Download files are of two types: *.txt for those testers that only download in ASCII text format and *.sss for
Seaward Super String (SSS) downloads from current Seaward testers or generated by PATGuard Work About.
From the Tools drop down select Process File then select the path of the file you wish to process. Select the correct
File of type. Then select Open. The following dialog box will be displayed if the file type is text.
Figure 10: Find window
Text files require a Usercode setting which corresponds to the Usercode entered during testing. Use the drop down
to select the appropriate setting. A Person can be entered and assigned as responsible for the testing. Each entry of
a new Person will add to the drop down list so that selecting from the drop down will be available later.
As sss files contain all necessary information and do not require Usercodes, the above dialog box is not necessary
and is not displayed.
The program will now require a database name to process the file, so the following window will be displayed.
Figure 11: Find window
Enter a new database name and path if necessary then select Save to process the file.
The download data will be processed as if it came directly from the PAT tester.

Seaward Supernova / Europa range of testers.
There is also a utility program for use with the PrimeTest 300: PrimeTest Blue Tooth Downloader
Tester Software Update
This program is used to update the software in the Supernova / Europa testers.
CAUTION
Do not use this program to update the software in your tester as you may install the wrong software and thus
disable the tester. This program is for use with certain accessories which require other tester software to be
installed. Information on how to do this is provided with these accessories. It may also be used at the request of
Seaward Technical Support or their representatives who may provide a software file.
The following is guidance on using this program should you be requested to do so.
CAUTION
Before updating the tester and any PC software; download the tester (if the results in memory are of value) as it is
necessary to CLEAR RESULTS MEMORY and CLEAR UPLOAD MEMORY after the update. Failure to comply with the
above will render any results irretrievable after update.
Connect from the tester serial port to the PC serial port with the Download Lead supplied.
From Windows Start select the Seaward PATGuard Lite group (from where the PATGuard Lite program can be
launched).
Run the Tester Software Update program. The following screen is displayed:

Note
Should the update fail part way through for whatever reason, perhaps the cable is accidentally disconnected then it
is not necessary to re-establish communication. By selecting the button Send Another Software Update File the
file can be re-selected and sent again.
To complete the update process on the tester, power off the tester then power back on after about 5 seconds
checking that the new software version number is displayed.
It is necessary to restore FACTORY SETTING, CLEAR RESULTS MEMORY and CLEAR UPLOAD MEMORY
on the tester to enable the new software to function correctly (see the tester Instruction Manual).
Tester Logo Transfer
This program is used to transfer a label title and a logo to the tester for use with the Seaward Test ‘N’ Tag System.
Full details on using this are provided with the Test ‘N’ Tag System. This program has no use other than with the
Test ‘N’ Tag System.
