2. Enter the appropriate communication settings for the data logger. Confirm the COM Port if applicable and enter the iSIC/SDL address. If unknown, the address may be left at zero for direct connect or cellular systems. For radio systems, the correct address must be entered.

4. When “Connect” changes to “Disconnect”, click the General tab. This will allow the configuration of the iSIC or SDL500 to be read.
