    Customizing Standard Characteristics

    Customizing StandardCharacteristics of OMICRON TestUniverseSome of the OMICRON Test Universe standard characteristics can becustomized according to the users requirements. To change a characteristic,certain settings in the Windows Registry need to be modified.The following sections describe what characteristics can be changed and how.

    Section 1 What characteristics can be modified? describes the feature, thekeys and values to be set and/or created in the registry are described:

    1 What characteristics can bemodified?

    1.1 Default CMC Device Type for Offline ModeDetermines the default device type for offline operation. When the Hardware

    Configuration dialog is opened in offline mode, Test Universe providessimulation of all device types listed below. By setting this registry entry, thedefault device type can be specified, i.e., the device type set here will beselected by default.

    Registry Settings

    1.2 Ground Wire Break WarningSpecifies whether or not the ground wire break warning is displayed.

    Note: The ground wire break warning is a crucial message! Disabling it willsuppress an important message that indicates a potential safety risk.

    Therefore we suggest to disable this warning only if the ground wirebreak warning occurs constantly due to your network topology, and allCMC users are fully aware that this is the case!

    Registry Settings

    Key name: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OMICRON\HardwareConfiguration

    Value name: DefaultDeviceTypeValue type: String (REG_SZ)

    Value data: CMC56, CMC156-EP, CMC256-3, CMC256-6, CMC151

    Key name: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OMICRON\HardwareConfiguration

    Value name: GroundWireBreakWarning

    Value type: String (REG_SZ)

    Value data: 0 or 1

    (0 = warning disabled, 1 = warning enabled. Default = 1)

    Note: When "Value name" does not exist, the warning is

    enabled.

    1.3 Scanning of Parallel PortsDetermines whether or not CM Engine scans the corresponding parallel port forconnected CMCs. The default setting is "scan port".

    Disabling a particular port from being scanned can be advantageous if ahardware device is connected to it that may conflict with the way the OMICRONkernel mode driver operates. Such a device can be a printer that, for example,every time the kernel mode driver switches, initiates an internal reset and ejects

    a sheet of paper.Registry Settings

    Key name: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\OMICRON\ParCMC

    Value name: ScanLPTx

    (where "x" is to be replaced with the actual port number)

    Value type: DWORD (REG_DWORD)Value data: 0 or 1 (default = 1)

    0 = port is not checked for connected CMCs

    1 = the port is included when scanning for devices

    Note: When "Value name" does not exist, the port isincluded when scanning for devices.

    1.4 Automatic Registration of the Kernel ModeDriversDetermines whether or not CM Engine automatically tries to register the kernelmode drivers for parallel port communication on each start-up. The defaultsetting is "register kernel mode drivers".

    Note: This setting should only be used by very advanced users thatunderstand the impact of disabling kernel mode drivers.

    Registry Settings

    It may be advantageous to select not to automatically register the the kernelmode drivers if you experience a conflict with another driver. However, up todate, the only definitely known case is an incompatibility with the PPShell driverof the Windows CE development environment.

    Setting the value data to 1 prevents CM Engine from automatically registeringthe kernel mode drivers, however, results in the fact that OMICRON TestUniverse can be operated in offline mode only.

    1.5 Height of Analog Diagrams in Reports

    Specifies the height in millimeters of analog diagrams in the test reports.Registry Settings

    Key name: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OMICRON\CM Engine

    Value name: RegisterAndStartKernelDrivers

    Value type: String (REG_SZ)

    Value data: 0 or 1 (default = 1)

    0 = kernel mode drivers not automatically registered1 = kernel mode drivers registration attempted automatically

    Note: when "Value name" does not exist, registration isattempted automatically.

    Key name: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OMICRON\\Options

    Value name: DiagramHeight

    Value type: String (REG_SZ)

    Value data: height in millimeters, value must be between 1 and 200

    1.6 Software Watchdog TimeoutSpecifies the time-out for the software watchdog in the device.

    Note: This setting should only be changed when advised by the OMICRONhotline.

    Registry Settings

    1.7 PC to Test Set Watchdog TimeoutSpecifies the time-out for the watchdog between the computer and theOMICRON test set (only relevant for CMC256 with NET-1 option).

    Note: This setting should only be changed when advised by the OMICRONhotline.

    Registry Settings

    Key name: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OMICRON\CM Engine

    Value name: WatchdogTimeout

    Value type: String (REG_SZ)

    Value data: Watchdog timeout in milliseconds, value must be between 2000and 30000

    Note: When "Value name" does not exist, the watchdogtimeout will be set to an internal default (currentlyabout 2000ms).

    Key name: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OMICRON\CM Engine

    Value name: WatchdogTimeoutAL2DevEng

    Value type: String (REG_SZ)

    Value data: Watchdog timeout in milliseconds, value must be between 1000and 30000

    Note: When "Value name" does not exist, the watchdogtimeout will be set to an internal default (currently3000ms).

    1.9 Disable Hardware-Check Error MessagesThis setting disables one or more error messages of the hardware self-test.

    Note: Edit with extreme caution! Working with a defective test set whoseerror messages are intentionally suppressed can be very dangerous!

    1.10 Rogowski Simulation Amplitude Dynamics A new setting possibility for the dynamic amplitude range using the trueRogowski coil simulation of the CMC256 test set. Two dynamic amplitude rangemodes can be selected: "normal" (default) and "high".

    "Normal" mode provides the security that the amplitudes do not exceed alimit which could result in distorted signals, even for higher frequencies, e.g.,400Hz. The amplitude, however, is limited to 5.9 times the nominal current

    (assuming that 150mV voltage is t
