The Home Station computer requires the latest version of Solinst Telemetry Software. The STS/RRL Administrator Software provides an easy-to-use graphical interface to set up each RRL Station, specify communication intervals, and define sampling rates for attached dataloggers. Collected data is stored and viewed using the software; it can also be exported for use in other programs.
You must have administrator privileges on your PC to install Solinst Telemetry Software
The STS/RRL Communication Agent is automatically installed with the STS/RRL Administrator Software, and is used to view communication activity. It must remain open (can be minimized) in order to receive realtime reports at the Home Station.
The STS/RRL Communication Agent should always remain open when the RRL System is in operation. It may be closed, but the data can not be sent to the Home Station Computer. The data will be stored in the RRL Remote Station until the Agent is re-opened, and not until the next scheduled report.
The RRL Remote Utility is useful to install on a portable laptop, as it provides a convenient way to communicate with programmed RRL Stations in your office or in the field, as well as perform remote diagnostic checks and firmware updates. See Section 5 for more information on the Remote Utility.
