Preserving Results Order While Optimizing Execution Sequence in MET/CAL® Procedures

This application note describes the method used in Fluke Calibration MET/CAL Warranted Procedure code to optimize procedure execution. This allows the procedure author to maximize the benefits of using automation (primarily by minimizing connection changes), while retaining the correct results order.

How to copy MET/CAL procedures using version 8 or higher

For procedure writers accustomed to using MET/CAL 7.3 and prior, you may notice that the Copy Procedures function no longer exists.  Copying procedures is still very easy to do, but the process has changed and is also slightly different depending on whether you elected to continue writing procedure code from legacy compiled procedure directories, or if you are instead migrating your procedure source to text (*.mc files).  Here are the steps required for both scenarios:

Setting the Exp_Unc number of Significant Digits correctly

Hi Everyone,

I've been working on getting Met/Cal to calculate measurement uncertainties using Met/Cal v7.3 sp1 and have come across a little bit of an issue.

I want to set the uncertainties to have 2 significant digits, in reading through the documentation it would seem that this is done via: VSET NSD=2

However, this doesn't work when the uncertanty calculated has leading 0's. So when the uncertainty should be 0.023, it instead becomes 0.02.

It was my understanding that the leading 0's were not supposed to be counted for purposes of significant digits.

Why do MET/CAL Gold procedures use so many subprocedures?

Gold procedures utilize subprocedures to maximum the reuse of procedure code.  A simple device may call several subprocedures to do the work, since a single subprocedure can perform the testing for many different, related devices.  There are many benefits to using this approach, a perfect example a four channel oscilloscope. 

National Instruments PXI procedures for MET/SUPPORT Gold members

 

Do you know MET/SUPPORT Gold members can now access 17 National Instruments PXI procedures from the Gold site?

Here's an up-to-date list of these PXI procedures. Because these procedures were writen using the new LIB FSC, MET/CAL version 8 is required to run them.
