Derive and edit a copy of a configuration

If you want to use an existing configuration as a template for a different one, you can derive a copy and edit it as needed.

To derive and edit a copy:

  1. Open BALTECH ConfigEditor.

    If you haven't installed it yet, you can download it herecall_made as part of BALTECH ToolSuite.

  2. In the popup window, click Open.

  3. Select the BALCFG file of the configuration that you want to use as a template.
  4. Click Derive Project.

    If this option isn't available, please finalize the configuration first.

  5. A draft copy of the configuration is created.

  6. The Administrative Information from the template configuration has been removed.
    Fill it out with the details for your project as this will help you retrieve and manage the configuration later.

    • Enter a Name for your project, e.g. the name of the building in which the readers will be installed.
    • Don't enable Follow Baltech Naming Convention.
      This is only relevant for configurations ordered from BALTECH (learn more).
    • Add a Description, e.g. a short summary of the intended reader behavior.

Now you can add or edit components, e.g. project settings and device settings.
