Macros: PMM ID & Serial Number, Save to Data File - COMPASS

Note that this is fixed in COMPASS for Pressure v5.0.50. COMPASS for Pressure upgrade is available for download at the website.


In COMPASS for Pressure, the model name and serial number of the first Pressure Measurement Module (PM600, PM200, PM500, PM630) of the reference device is saved in the data file to the Reference ID Info field. However, during the test the active PMM likely changes, and the first PMM info is saved for every data point in COMPASS for Pressure v5.0.25. This is fixed in version 5.0.50.

This Test Macro will save the PMM model name and serial number StringData5, 6 and 7 in the datafile for each data point.

You can then choose to put this information on your calibration report, leave it in the data file for traceability, or use for other macros.

If you want to use more than one Test Macro during a test see this article, Macros: Call multiple macros with a single macro

A link to a file that contains the macro text is below the image. Copy the code in the file and paste to a new Test Macro in the COMPASS Macro Editor. Paste using [Ctrl]+[v] because right-clicking the mouse doesn't work in the Macro Editor.
