  • First, pair the sensor to the tablet in Windows. See the SafeCide manual for this process.
  • Run the SafeCide software, go to SETTINGS and pair the sensor in the software. See the SafeCide manual for this process.
  • For SafeCide systems: Verify that the sensor shows connected or paired in the Bluetooth devices menu and that the sensor is turned on and within 30 feet direct line of sight to the tablet. If there are obstacles like equipment or walls between the tablet and sensor it can limit the range of the Bluetooth signal.
  • Sometimes pairing sensors to the tablet can take some time for the tablet to identify the sensor or to connect and pair to the sensor. This can be due to interfering signals in the area such as other Bluetooth devices or other sources of RF signals or noise ( walkie-talkies, motors, etc. ). If you experience difficulty in pairing a sensor to the tablet turn the sensor off, wait 10-20 minutes, turn the sensor back on then try again. Each ECell sensor is paired to a tablet at the time of calibration to verify the operation of the sensor’s Bluetooth module to ensure that the modules function properly before shipment.

  • Log files can be reviewed directly in the SafeCide application. On the Home Screen press the Review button. Next press the “Load File” button and select the desired log file. The Data will be displayed in a table with the option to view it in graph form as well.
  • Log files can also be exported to a USB flashdrive in order to view the data on a Desktop Computer. Plug in a USB flashdrive. On the Home Screen press the Review button. Next press the “Load File” button and select the desired log file. Finally press the “Export” button and you will be propmted to select the location where the log file should be exported to. Once the export is complete you can transfer your data to another computer with the USB flashdrive.

  • Verify that the sensor is paried directly with the tablet via Windows Bluetooth.
  • Verify that you only have 1 instance of the SafeCide software running at a time. If multiple instances of SafeCide are running at the same time the software cannot access the sensor and will display that message.
  • Close all instances of the SafeCide software running and restart the application ensuring that only one instance is running. Once restarted, re-pair the sensor to the software. It should not be necessary to pair the sensor in windows again.

  • Close SafeCide and return to the Desktop.
  • Press the icon directly right of the Windows Icon to bring up the Search Bar.
  • Press the Keyboard icon in the right hand side of the taskbar to bring up the On Screen Keyboard.
  • Enter "Tying Settings" and press the Enter key.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and toggle on the "Show the touch keyboard or handwriting panel when not in tablet mode and there's no keyboard attached." option.
