File Manager Tab

The File Manager tab provides a quick access to the files stored on the instrument flash drive as well as any mass storage attached to one of the USB connectors.


  • Download measurement data, instruments settings and log files to a local device
  • Manage file structure (browse, copy, rename, delete) on instrument flash drive and attached USB mass storage devices
  • Update instrument from USB mass storage
  • File preview for settings files and log files


The File Manager tab provides standard tools to see and organize the files on the instrument flash drive as well as on attached USB storage devices. Files can be conveniently copied, renamed, downloaded and deleted. Whenever the tab is closed or an additional one of the same type is needed, clicking the following icon will open a new instance of the tab.
