How do you upload a Power Reference Graph to Med-eBase?

This guide will take you through the steps required to upload a Power Reference Curve to the Rigel Med-eBase software for use when creating a test sequence for the Rigel Uni-Therm Electrosurgical Analyser.

Equipment required:

- PC with Med-eBase software

- Reference Graph

Note: You will require two reference curves, one for the upper limit and one for the lower limits for each specific device

Create Reference Curve

1) Open the file ‘RefGraphtemplateMB.csv’ which accompanied this document as a download Please

see the example below also:


Graph Name,













Note: One comma is required at the end of every line and between numbers. Therefore when the curve is created in excel please reopen the curve in notepad (or similar) to check locations of commas is correct.

2) [REFGRAPH] and [END] must remain at the beginning and end of the file.

3) Graph Name is the name of the reference curve and can be changed. This will be the name of the graph which will be shown once imported into Med-eBase.

4) 10 is the number of points on the graph, this can be changed but the lines of data must reflect this number.

5) Column A in excel should be the X axis, and represents the Load (). Column B is the Y axis and represents the Power (W). In this example line 3 is a plot of 100Wat 100. In Excel commas are not required but please check they are visible in notepad/word format.

6) Once you have completed plotting the point in the CSV file, Select File and then Save As. Save the file with a recognisable name and .txt extension, e.g. GraphName.txt.
