It is recommended that field deployments be carefully planned. It is best to completely configure the system on a lab bench and test it for a period of time prior to departing for the field. This will ensure a successful deployment and quality data collection. Additionally, it is much easier to troubleshoot problems in the lab rather than in the field.
With iChart running and a connection from the data logger to the PC established, select File | New Project. Name the project and follow the step-by-step procedure in the Setup Device Wizard.
