  • A new test can be started on the same links or closing the results window you can go back to the selection panle to make a new selection for the next test.
  • To quit the tool you should close all the windows first except the "Optical links test tool" one where you should use the END OF TEST button and wait for the end of the test cleaning phase before quiting the tool with the Quit button.

Remarks:

  • When new databases are created dont forget to copy them in all projects and add them in the TestMaster_Start.pnl panel definition with the PVSS edit panel.
  • Some actions may be long to proceed to end. Be patient and use the various project PVSS log windows to check for their execution course
