Talk:RadiMation Application Note 109
This application note should describe how the directory configuration is working. For configuring it on a network
Also include the advantages of using RadiMation on the network:
- Measurement results are available on all company PC's
- TSF files can be shared by all the measurement PC's in the laboratory
- LLF files can be created once, and use on all locations
- Because of flexible configuration of directories, can decide to only put LLF, COR and EUT on the network, and leave TSF files and CAL files locally
- If measurement equipment is moved around, it is easier to select the correct device from the shared device driver configuration
Disadvantage of a network confiugration:
- can be slower to load TSF file directory structures
- Changes on one location can result in unexpected different behaviour on another location where another engineer is testing
- Differences in the testsite names on different computers can result in shared TSF files with the wrong testsite names.
- A shared device driver configuration can result in a lot of devices, and a lot of testsites.
We should also include a big remark that once a configuration is created on one location, it is difficult to move it to another location, because there are absolute file references in the TSF files. Thus moving the cal files to another location will result in that for the TSF files, the calibration files have to be reselected from the new location, because they are not available anymore on the old location. This also results in the advice to first determine the correct location of the configuration during the initial configuration of RadiMation, because it can be
