The handheld digital ECM unit operates from an internal battery and records conductivity data digitally in non-volatile memory. After scanning one or more ice cores, the data are transferred to an IBM-PC computer using the software provided. Data transfer is through a standard straight-through serial cable (i.e., not a null-modem cable). A USB-serial converter is supplied for use with computers lacking a serial port.
ECM software, suitable for Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP/Vista is available for download HERE. Save the setup.exe file to your computer and then execute it to install the ECM software.
Icefield Instruments may provide periodic software upgrades for the handheld ECM unit. Web upgrades can be made automatically from within your installation of the ECM software.
