iChart Software is used to communicate with the SDL500C. Follow the Setup Device Wizard or the iChart manual to install the software.

To establish communication with a computer, first connect the A49-SDL antenna to the top communication port. Also, power the SDL500 with internal batteries, solar power pack(s), with an external 12 VDC source.

Open iChart and select Advanced | iSIC | iSIC. The iSIC Setup window will be displayed.

Select the appropriate iSIC Address and set the Connection type to SDL500C (Cellular). Enter the IP address of the modem and click Connect. Make sure the IP Port is set to 500. Click Connect and then switch to the General tab. The SDL500C will send its current status (time, operating battery voltage, real-time clock battery voltage, firmware version, hardware version and ID) to iChart. If this information is displayed, communication has been established. Proceed with connecting sensors.
