Locating and Transferring Data Files

The following is a guide for locating data files on the GasID and transferring these files to an external memory.

Locating files on the GasID

  1. Access the computer desktop.
    • Shutdown the GasID software by selecting [Shutdown].
    • Select [Shutdown].
  2. Select [Start] and then select [My Computer]
  3. Select [GASID (C:)]
  4. Select [SmithsDetection]
  5. Select [QualID]
  6. Select [GasID]
  7. Select [Data]
  8. The data files are placed in folders according to the incident name and sample ID for each run.
    • The incident name will be what was entered before the sample was collected.
    • The performance validations are also saved in the data folder.

Exporting files from a sample that was just collected.

  1. On the results screen, select [VISUAL COMPARE].
  2. On the compare screen, click [EXPORT REPORT].

  4. Select either [EXPORT ENTIRE INCIDENT] or [EXPORT SAMPLE DATA FILE] depending on which type of data is being saved.
    • If you want every sample from a particular incident then choose [Export Entire Incident].
    • If you want a single sample from an incident then choose [Export Sample Data File].

Exporting files from a previous run

  1. Click the [ADVANCED FEATURES] button after logging on to the system.
  2. Click [VIEW PREVIOUS RESULTS].
  3. Highlight the data file that is being exported and then select [EXPORT TO DISK].
