The Test-Seq program interprets a file of commands and controls a test rig accordingly. It can send commands and data to other Windows programs, or directly to hardware channels. This page describes recent updates to the Test-Seq program and manual.
A new version of Test-Seq allows long term logging to a sequence of files or directories. With Windmill Logger, for instance, you could log to a new file every hour, every day or every week. Alternatively you could capture data and copy it to a new file every time a trigger occurred.
You can download the Test-Seq help file. Select testseq6.zip and save to disk.
In earlier issues of the manual Section 8.3, Creating a PID Control Loop Using a Monitor Channel, contained an error. Line 6 of the example should have said
IMLesc HeatCtrl, DER=0.0
and not IMLesc HeatCtrl, DIF=0.0.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Version 3.1 of Test-Seq includes a new command: PulseOutput. This outputs a pulse to a digital output channel and takes the form
PULSEOUTPUT "Pulse Time", "Output Channel", "Hi" or "Lo"
The PulseOutput command makes use of functions within commslib.dll (a component of Windmill). This file is in the \windows\system\ directory and should be dated 20/5/96 or later, for PulseOutput to work.
A full explanation is given on page 18 of the Windmill Test-Seq User Manual.
