The Download Data workflow:

1)Start the software by double clicking on the program icon.
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.

Tip

If the desired Environment is not displayed on the Environment Sidebar, the user can use either the Open Environment Toolbar button or select the Open Environment Folder command from the File Menu.

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.

7)Click the Next command button.
8)Select the desired data run and then click the Finish command button to complete the wizard and read the data run from the M.O.L.E. Profiler.

Tip

This step of the wizard allows the user to remove a selected data run from the M.O.L.E. Profiler by either selecting the Delete After Reading check box or selecting the Delete command button and removing it before downloading. This feature is not available for the SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold Thermal Profiler as it does not have the ability to store more than one data run.

Tip

The software allows the ability to download multiple data runs at one time. For consecutive data runs, click the first data run in the list, press and hold down the SHIFT key, and then click the last data run in the list. For data runs that are not consecutive, press and hold down the CTRL key, and then click each data run that you want to import.

 

9)When the data run has been downloaded, the software prompts the user to specify new 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.
