4. Run a Test
To run a test:
1. Select the type of test from the
Test Menu:
Battery On/Off Toggles the
internal battery simulator in the
F Series Instrument On or Off, if
present.
Note
The default value for the battery
simulator is 125 VDC. Be certain to
select the correct battery voltage for
48 V equipment or equipment
damage can occur.
Run Plays the configured
digital and analog Comtrade
through the F Series Instrument.
Run Continuously Loops the
Comtrade channels through the
F Series Instrument until STOP
is clicked. There is a small
delay between the end of one
loop and the start of the next
loop.
Run Go-At Requires
installation of the Fxxxx
Satellite Receiver option
in the F Series Instrument.
Synchronizes time precisely to
international time standards, for
end-to-end testing and remote
synchronization of F Series
Instrument units.
Run Preset-Until Loops for a
preset schedule and then runs
the rest of the waveform.

user manual for a description of
this feature.
2. For Run GoAt, Run PresetUntil, and Run State Transition:
Configure the User Options, if required.
Enter a Test Go At Local Time and click OK.

Performing a SSIMUL Test
1. Open SSIMUL
To open SSIMUL:
1. Start TransWin.
2. Select SSIMUL > New.
2. Configure the
SSIMUL Tab
Optional steps include:
1. Select a trigger to end any state prematurely:

drop-down box appears.
b. Select the analog input to end the state.
2. Select an event type to end a state:
a. Click on the second box to the right of the trigger event field and a
drop-down box appears.
b. Select the event type to end the state.
For example, O->C is contact open to close, OFF->ON is a voltage
sense from off to on.
The L/R selection can be used to smooth the transition between states. An
initial value of 10 may be sufficient, but experimentation is the best way to
determine the optimum value for a given application.
To configure the SSIMUL tab:
1. Select Configuration > SSIMUL,
then select Open to load an existing
SSIMUL test or click New to create
a new SSIMUL test with a new
filename.
2. Create a state by defining the
Source and Frequency name(s).
Up to twelve sources can be
defined, depending on the F6000
configuration setup. Click Append
to add additional states.
Note
Two frequencies can be specified,
but there is a limit of two different
source frequencies.
3. Enter the amplitude(s) and phase(s)
for each state defined.
4. Enter a whole number of cycles for
the state duration in the Cycles field.
To insert a state before the current state:
Click Insert at the top of the
column display.
To edit the labels at the top of the
columns:
Click in the label box.
5. Enter a whole number for
Max Duration.
Copies a selected
state and inserts
it before the
copied state.

(L1 is the default)
4. Configuring the
Results Tab
Note
The amount for the positive and negative tolerances
must be the same.
To configuring the Results tab:
1. Enter the Timer Name.
2. Select the source name in the Timer
Name column corresponding to the
timed logic input.
3. Select the state in the Timer Start
column corresponding to the timed
event.

Analog Input Measurement
There are four ways to run Analog Input Measurement:
Recording in stand alone mode
Recording while re-playing a Comtrade file
Recording while generating a SSIMUL test
Recording and source monitoring while in the last two modes.
Note
The Analog Input Measurement feature is only available on F6150
with the Analog Input Measurement hardware option and CPU2.
Recording Only (Stand Alone)
1. Open Analog Input Measurement
To open Analog Input Measurement:
1. Start TransWin.
The Open file dialog box appears.
2. Click Cancel.
3. Select Open Configuration > Analog
Input Measurement Configuration.
TransWin/Analog Input Measurement Quick Start Guide 11
2. Configure Analog Input Measurement Channels for Recording (All Modes)
To configure Analog Input Measurement
channels for recording:
1. Click the checkbox below the column
of the desired recording channel to
select the channel for configuration.
2. Use Logic Input to select the channel
input type. An analog type records
waveforms and other non-digital data.
3. Set the Range to the smallest value
greater than the expected maximum
value of the recorded signal.
4. Use the Value and Unit selection
to set Primary to Secondary ratios,
if desired. To display the values in
Primary or Secondary units, click
Display.
5. Use the Sample drop-down box to
select the sample rate. High
sampling rates give better detail but
create larger data files that can take
longer to load.
6. Use the Length field to select the
recording time (sec). The time must
encompass the entire event and be
directly proportional to the size of
the recorded file.
7. Select the source of the trigger signal
using the following guidelines:
Immediate - Starts the
recording as soon as OK is
clicked. This is useful for
recording ongoing events.
Preset State (SSIMUL Only) -
Allows the selection of a
SSIMUL state to start the
recording. For example, select
State 3 and the Analog Input
Measurement recording starts
at the beginning of the SSIMUL
test third state.
Note
The Logic Input Range must be just greater than the
playback signal maximum, which is dictated by the Test Maximum
on the Source and Timers window.
Digital Input (Digital Channels Only) - Selects a digital channel
to trigger the Analog Input Measurement recording. Specify the
transition for recording start using the Transition drop-down box.
OFF-ON or ON-OFF transitions are available.
Source - Starts the recording when the specified source is
enabled, usually at the start of a test.
Analog Input - Uses the selected analog input signal as the
trigger mechanism. The trigger level is set as a percentage,
1 - 100%, of the MAXIMUM Range. For example, if the range is
2.5 V maximum and the trigger level is 10%, the recording starts
the first time the waveform exceeds 0.25 V.
8. Specify a pre-trigger time to record events that occur before the
recording is triggered, if desired. The minimum pre-trigger time is
.03 seconds.
9. To configure a digital input:
a. Select Digital from the Logic Input Type field.
b. Set the Logic Input to:
Contact, if the input is from a dry contact
Potential if the input is from a wet source. In Potential
mode, use the Logic In Mask selection box to select a
logic threshold of 1.5 or 15 VDC, if desired.
c. Set the normal state of the logic input to OFF (0) or ON (1) using
the Normal State selection box.

and to reconfigure recording parameters, if
required.
Note
This file must be saved.
