  • Photometer photoLab S 6, photoLab S 12 or photoLab Spektral
  • PC cable AK Labor, WTW Order No. 902 758
  • Program file "UpdateMethodData.exe"
  • 6 Method Data files " pls6md.XXX", "pls12md.XXX", "plspekmd.XXX", .....

Update Procedure:

  • Connect the serial interfaces of PC and photometer using the cable AK Labor.
  • Switch on the PC and photometer.
  • Copy all files (program file and six method data files) into a subdirectory or onto a floppy disk.
