WiFi wireless technology is included with all PosiTector Advanced models with serial numbers greater than 730,000 and PosiTest AT-A Automatic Adhesion Testers with a touchscreen display.
Any device connected on the same network can wirelessly access the gages stored measurement data to:
View stored measurements using a standard web browser
Access HTML, comma delimited text (.txt) and JSON schema files - parse information for inclusion in databases or custom software applications
Remotely control gage memory features such as creating a new batch and deleting all measurement data
Remotely view the live display of a working instrument - see the gage display as if it were in your hand
Connecting to the gage using a standard web browser
1. Connect your instrument to a WiFi network by selecting Networks from within the Connect > WiFi menu. Ensure the instrument and smart device or computer are connected to the same WiFi network.
2. Type the IP address found within the instruments Connect > WiFi > Information menu into the web browser address bar.

Remotely control gage memory features
Some memory features can be controlled remotely over WiFi utilizing PHP scripts:
Creating a New batch http://ip_address_of_instrument:8080/new_batch.php
Delete all batches http://ip_address_of_instrument:8080/delete_all_batches.php
Close a batch http://ip_address_of_instrument:8080/close_batch.php
Refresh Instrument Memory (readings) Refresh new readings only (since last refresh): http://ip_address_of_instrument:8080/refresh.php Refresh all readings: http://ip_address_of_instrument:8080/refresh_all.php
How to use WiFi Batch Transfer
After a call to refresh.php (see above) each batch in the gage will have 4 files within the http://<positector ip="" address="">:8080/usbms/<buid> directory. Replace <buid> with the batch's unique identifier which is listed in Batchlist.txt.</buid></buid></positector>
header.txt – contains basic information on the batch including serial number and probe type
readings.txt – a CSV containing a reader and one reading per line
statistics.txt – a CSV containing statistics on the batch and any included reading sets
<buid>.json – a JSON file with the same information as header.txt and readings.txt in JSON format</buid>
Note: The order of the columns within the CSV files and order of rows in header.txt may change at any time. Files should be parsed using their column headers to determine ordering rather than constants.
