How do I download data from the Rigel devices to the PC without Med-eBase?

Equipment required:

- Rigel device

- PC/Laptop

- Bluetooth connectivity or RS 232 cable

- DataTransfer.exe for file transfer


There are 3 ways to send test results from the Rigel device to a PC:

1) Bluetooth connection

2) Serial connection using the RS 232 cable

3) USB (Only applicable for Performance Analysers)

Bluetooth connection

To download via Bluetooth the download is always initiated by the Rigel tester and can be saved as:

i. Text file

ii. Csv file

iii. To Med-eBase as SSS file (Please see the FAQ ‘How Do I Download Data from the Rigel Devices to Med-EBase?’)

Make sure the PC and Rigel device are paired via Bluetooth Favourites on the device (Please see FAQ ‘What’s the process for pairing devices using Bluetooth favourites’)
