"Check and Improve" helps you ensure and improve the formal quality of your ETS projects. This includes the verification and semi-automatic correction of spelling, configurable naming conventions, and the assignment of Datapoint types.
Without much effort, the project gets more clearly arranged, better maintainable and will be the perfect base for further use, e.g. for a visualization.
The Spell checker can make use of many freely available dictionaries in lots of languages e.g. from the OpenOffice and Mozilla projects, plus user dictionaries for additional words.
The naming conventions can be defined by combining building blocks like "alternative", "concatenation", "list of allowed names", "list of names from project", "pattern" etc. to a rule.
The Datapoint type assignment has access to an online database with information currently about approx. 1000 application programs (continuously growing).
Electrical installation Import
EI Import generates an ETS5 project from a CSV list of actuators and circuits. The list can easily be created using Excel or a text editor.
The project produced contains all the necessary group addresses, the building structure and the actuators. It can be further processed with the ETS5 or EIplan5.
Speed up project design!
The ETS App "Extended Copy" is used to quickly create similar structures in a project. This feature is meant especially for KNX users dealing with large projects, with for example recurring room functionality. During the copy process, a dedicated dialog will allow devices, bus lines, even complete building parts together with their destination address assignments, parameterization, group addresses, links, text attachments and other information to be adjusted. Thereafter, the configuration is inserted seamlessly. This results in new projects at very short notice. Projects that otherwise had to be re-configured via a very time-consuming workflow.
Easy2ETS tool can be used to read out an installation made of Easy Hager and Berker devices configured with TXA100 and to take over the configuration with ETS.
- RF Devices cannot be read out.
- Bus access and ETS products data are required (product database).
Re-use what you created before
In practice, configuring KNX devices can be very time-consuming. If you need devices with particular configurations more than once, it may be useful to have them somewhere available for further use afterwards. With the ETS App "My Product Templates" such ready-made devices can be added to a favorites list. Also KNX devices used in all (or almost all) projects can be handled in the same way. They are then also available for other projects - like from the manufacturer catalog - but then fully pre-configured. Users who repeatedly integrate similar functions can save themselves a lot of time and effort with this ETS App.
