My megger pat4 has developed a fault so I have picked up a cheap europa plus.

I'm looking at tweaking the tests and I notice each test has 2 test codes. Why?
I've read you can type these in to go straight to a test but the current ones are 10 characters long!
The megger used 3 character codes.
My attempts to change or reduce the character length gives a message "can't translate the barcode"

Hi Rich

I think the second test code sequence was added when the Europa was updated to the Europa Plus. The second test code sequence contains information regarding the Test Durations (how many seconds the tests are run for and also the number of times each test type is run, allowing you to do multiple Earth Bond or Insulation tests in a sequence etc.

Both test codes have to be 10 characters long.

Whilst the Megger used test codes of 3 characters, these were just abbreviations that represented a much larger test code sequence stored within the tester.

Hope this sheds a bit of light?

Regards, Richard
