Connecting a blue-DAT Transmitter

The following describes how to connect a blue DAT transmitter to your PC. To add a transmitter to the Input devices list, connect the transmitter via the digital interface to the measuring device and switch the latter on.

Double click the + Add new device entry field in the blue-DAT list to open the devices list. All transmitters that are recognized are listed here. Devices that are turned off are not recognized. Briefly press the on/off button on the transmitter to turn it on. A blue light glows on the transmitter to indicate it is on and the transmitter will appear in the list.

Mouse click on the transmitter you want to connect and then click on Add. The transmitter now appears in the Input devices lists and is automatically connected to the standard output device, the Virtual Keyboard.

Pressing the button on the transmitter transmits measurement data from the measuring device to keyboard interface. Transmitted measurement values are then displayed in the lower part of the window. As a check, compare these values with those displayed on your handheld measuring device.

The green icon next to the transmitter shows you that the transmitter is turned on. If the transmitter is turned off, the icon turns to yellow. As additional information is displayed the battery level of the transmitter.
