The additional module for Mahr Integrated Wireless measurement devices is not included in the basic version of MDM-Tool.
The following describes how to connect a Mahr Integrated Wireless measurement device to your PC.
Double click the + Add new device entry field in the Mahr i-Stick list to open the devices list. All measurement devices that are recognized are listed here.
Now open the measurement device's configuration menu (the device's menu, not the MDM's) and switch to ID configuration. Reset the device's ID. If the ID is properly reseted, the device's display shows “- - - - -”. Now push the button for transmitting a measurement value. After a few seconds the measurement device should appear in the MDM-Tool's device list.
Select the measurement device you want to connect and click the Add button. The measurement device is now listed in the Input devices list and is automatically connected to the standard output device, the Virtual Keyboard.
Pressing the button on the measurement device transmits measurement data from the 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 device shows you that the device is turned on. If the device is turned off, the icon turns yellow.
