Direct Connect

Prior to operation the M.O.L.E. Profiler must be configured to properly communicate with the M.O.L.E.® MAP Software.

Important Information

The M.O.L.E.® MAP software must be installed prior to communications setup. (Refer to Software Installation for more information).

To connect the M.O.L.E. Profiler:

1)Insert the USB computer interface cable into a computer USB Port and the other end into the Data/Charging Port.

M.O.L.E. Profiler Connection

Important Information

In some cases, the first time a M.O.L.E. Profiler is connected to a computer with an Windows XP operating system, it may require two drivers to be installed. One is a device driver for the M.O.L.E. Profiler and the other is for USB communication.

2)During installation of the device driver, when prompted to select the location of the device driver, select "Install the software automatically". Follow the remaining wizard instructions closely.


3)During installation of the USB driver a message box appears, select the Continue Anyway command button and the driver will be successfully installed.


4)After M.O.L.E. Profiler is connected to a computer, the software must be configured so they can communicate. Start the software program by either double-clicking the M.O.L.E.® MAP software icon or selecting it from the ECD program sub-menu.

5)On the M.O.L.E. menu, click the Select Instrument command.

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 OK command button to accept or Cancel to quit the command.
