This process is only available for SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold Profilers.

The Download Data workflow:

2)Connect the M.O.L.E. Profiler to the computer. Refer to the Communications Setup topic for your specific M.O.L.E. Profiler for more information.
3)Set an Environment related for the type of experiment that is being performed. Either open an existing Environment Folder or create a new one.

6)Select the desired instrument from the dialog box to make active. If a M.O.L.E. Profiler has already been selected during a different process, the software automatically selects the M.O.L.E. Profiler connected to the COM Port previously used.

Important Information

If the software does not detect a M.O.L.E. Profiler, using the communication cable connect it to the computer and click the Scan for Instruments command button to search again. M.O.L.E.® MAP software allows multiple instruments to be connected to a computer at one time. Selecting the Scan for Instruments command button will detect all instruments and display them in the dialog box. If no instrument is detected the software displays all of the Demonstration thermal profilers to select from.

9)When the data run has been downloaded, the software prompts the user to specify a file name (*.XMG).

Important Information

If a data run (*.XMG) is saved in a different Environment Folder other than the currently selected, the software automatically activates the new Environment Folder. This process does not delete any data run files in the previously set Environment Folder and can be quickly accessed using the Recent Environment Folders on the File menu.
