Using Bluetooth to Communicate with OdaLog Loggers
By: CAS Dataloggers
This guide will walk you through the steps to properly pair the Bluetooth on your OdaLog L2 or RTx model, with the Bluetooth radio on your Windows PC. There are also quick steps on how to begin using the OdaStat-G software once the Bluetooth is paired.
Step 1. Bring up the Bluetooth & Other Devices window on your Windows PC by typing "Bluetooth" on the taskbar near the bottom left of your screen and clicking the "Bluetooth & Other Devices" system settings link that pops up
Step 2. Once the Bluetooth & Other Devices window pops up, click on "Add Bluetooth or other device" at the very top
Step 3. On the "Add a device" window that pops up, click "Bluetooth"
Step 4. If you see the above screen and your OdaLog logger's display shows "OFF," turn the logger on by holding down the button on the top through the "ON" countdown
Step 5. On the logger, press and hold the button until you see 'BT Pair" on the screen
a. L2 menu order: Status, Start, IRDA, BT, BT Pair
b. RTx menu order: Status, Start, Transmit, BT, BT Pair
Step 6. Watch for the logger to show up in the "Add a device" window on your PC (it may show up as an "Unknown Device" at first). When the Bluetooth radio on the PC communicates with the logger, you'll see a PIN number on the logger.
Step 7. When you see the logger appear in the pairing window, click on it and the pairing process will complete
