Converting a DA1 logger setup to a DA3

If you are currently using a GEMS DA1 (or older) logger and want to transter a good setup, in an .STU file, to a newly acquired DA3, you can accomplish this by using the Conversion feature in GDA of GDA-Pro.

Provided that you have the setup file (.STU) that you wish to convert, safely saved on your PC/Laptop, you do not even need to access the Memory/Flash Stick, until you want to program the DA3 with the newly converted setup file.

In GDA and/or GDA-Pro, there is a 'Convert' feature under the 'Logger' tab. If you click on this feature, you will be prompted to open the setup file that you wish to convert. Once you select a file, you will be asked to what version of logger you want to conver to. Here select 'DA3'.

This can also work for other GEMS loggers but the process is designed to speed up the conversion process and will still need to be checked to be sure that it has converted all of the entries successfully.

You will see that this conversion process, creates a 'Generic' conversion of the original setup file. This is due to there possibly being some small differences between the source and resulting .STU files, as there are obviously feature differences between logger models. For the majority of cases, this will be small, if at all but please visually check the source and resulting .STU files for any obvious differences and notify GEMS on the Technical Support email address and we will be able to offer a solution, if needs be.
