Networking Multiple Easy-Touch™ Testers

Easy-Touch testers have the capabilities of a Signature tester, but have software that is similar to Easy-Wire™. Easy-Touch testers store test programs in their own individual databases. You can put your Easy-Touch testers on a network and share Easy-Touch files using the export/import function in Easy-Wire; however, this method can be tedious and inefficient.
Installing the 'Cirris Server Software' creates one central network server database for each Easy-Touch tester on your production floor.

One central database allows you to:

  • Edit and manage test programs from one location.
  • Manage security and login information for all users in one location.
  • Back-up, repair, and reduce the size of the database.
  • View all test reports and test data from any test station in your network.

Where do I install the 'Cirris Server Software'?

You have two options for installing 'Cirris Server Software.'

  1. Run the software directly on your company server.
  2. Run the software on a Windows based PC which is connected to your network.

So What Do I Do Next?

After you install 'Cirris Server Software', you attach each Easy-Touch tester to the network server database.

Less efficient: Peer to Peer network with separate databases:

netwrk-2

Recommended: 'Cirris Server Software' network with one central database:

netwrk-3
