TDS DATA TRANSFER
Download [HP-48 and Husky]
In the TDS program, go to the File Transfer routine. Choose the type of data to transfer (CR5 or RAW). Next pick the Send function key. Stop here on the TDS and go to Carlson to run Data Collection in the Survey menu and pick TDS. Make sure that the COM port and baud rate are set correctly. Then pick the Download button. The Carlson program will now wait to receive the TDS file. Within 10 seconds select the file to send on the TDS. The file should be transferred now. When the transfer is complete, the program will ask you for the Carlson file to create if you haven't already specified a file name in the dialog. With Point Protect on, the routine will check the coordinate file for existing point data before downloading the point from the data collector.
Upload [HP-48 and Husky]
A Carlson coordinate (.CRD) file can be converted to a CR5 file and uploaded into TDS. Start in the TDS program, by going to the File Transfer routine. Then move back to Carlson and run Data Collection in the Survey menu and pick TDS. In the Carlson dialog, enter a TDS File name. This name should not include the drive and directory path or file extension. For example, if the coordinate (.CRD) file is c:\scadxml\data\simo2.crd then the TDS File name could be just SIMO2. Next pick the Select File button next to the Carlson coordinate (.CRD) File edit box and choose the coordinate (.CRD) file to send. Check that the COM port and baud rate are set correctly. Now pick the Carlson Upload button. A dialog now allows you to specify the range of point numbers to upload. Enter the range of points but before clicking the Start Transfer button go to TDS and hit the Receive function key. Within 10 seconds go back and click the OK button on the range of points. The file should then transfer.
