Would someone be able to tell me if the PatGuard 3 software is usable/compatible with the Clare HAL 104 please?

Ian.

Thank you for your enquiry

Regarding downloading from a HAL 104;

There are a few options:
1, We have a basic free downloader that you can use to download your HAL 104 – However, this may not work for all systems and is not supported by us.

2, To download all data from the HAL 104 you will require Safety e-Base Pro software:

3, For limited download of the HAL 104 (not including the Power, Power Factor and Load Leakage) you can use PATGuard 3. We hope to be able include this in a future version.

4. Regarding the remote RS232 protocol with the HAL, please see page 131 of the manual, in the link below:

http://www.seaward.co.uk/downloads/ClareHAL-Manual.pdf

Some example files and text scripts are available for above, if these are required please get in touch with Technical Support on support@seaward.co.uk

Note: if you want the full flexibility of the protocol, you will need to set up the commands from within your software. You will need the sample files to be able to do that (one includes the encryption table for the command crc).

Kind regards

Thanks for all that info Stephen, I will take a look at the options and try the PatGuard 3 trial again as I thought it wasn't compatible due to the HAL 104 not being mentioned as a device to connect to.

Thank you for your enquiry

In PATGuard 3 just select the “Clare HAL” instrument option and use the “Download Results” on the HAL 104. Please see the PATGuard 3 download instructions for the Supernova below – this is the same for the HAL.
