With the Project Check function, several project checks can be performed with the help of a wizard. The Project Check wizard will guide you through the process of checking your project against common KNX planning and design rules.
This is an offline test. ETS will not connect to the bus.
The Project Check can be invoked via the 3 dots in the toolbar.
There are 5 different levels which are checked in a project.
- Device check
- Group address check
- Topology check
- Product Information check
- Checks for projects imported from earlier versions of ETS
What does the Device Check verify?
- If at least one group object of the devices is associated with a group address
- If all device identifiers are compatible with ETS3 plug-ins
Group address check
What does the Group Address Check verify?
- If all group addresses are used (linked with at least one group object)
- Whether extended group addresses are linked to plug-in devices
- Whether all group address identifiers are compatible with ETS3 plug-ins
What does the Topology Check verify?
- Compares the device current requirements and current provided by the TP power supplies
- If the power consumption device property is available on the devices, it is used; otherwise, an average of 10mA is used
- If the current device property is available on the power supplies, it is used; otherwise, an average of 320mA is used
- Power supply and choke counts in TP segments
- Whether there are missing couplers in main segments
- Whether there are missing segment couplers in sub-segments
- If the backbone line should be IP
- If the requirements for topologies with KNX/IP routers are met
- If all topology identifiers are compatible with ETS3 plug-ins
Product Information Check
In some cases, an update of a KNX product entry is available, containing improvements or bug corrections for the same product version. With the help of this check, a list which shows all such devices can be printed out. The list also contains the 'fingerprints' of the devices (these can be used by the manufacturers to distinguish between several variations of a device, even when the version is the same).
Checks for projects imported from earlier versions of ETS
What does the Checks for projects imported from earlier versions of ETS verify?
- If all device addresses are valid
- If the addresses of areas and lines are valid
- If the group ranges are valid
- Legacy repeater count
The result is shown in the same window and can be saved, copied to the clipboard and printed out.
All checks can be disabled globally, and the individual steps of the checks can be disabled in the respective tab.
