PressureScan II Installation and Usage Guide

Follow the steps in order for easy setup and use.


First, you need to install the ForceLAB2 software.


1. Connect the USB Drive and USB Dongle

   Among the solution components, connect the white USB drive and the blue ForceLAB2 license USB dongle to your PC.


2. Run the ForceLAB2.exe installation file from the USB drive/software.

   Follow the installation guide and set the license type to Hardware License Key.

※ During installation, the FTDI driver and .NET Framework will be installed. Both must be installed.

 Typically, .NET Framework may already be installed on your system, 

in which case you will see a message indicating it is already installed.


3. Run ForceLAB2

※ The license dongle must be connected to use ForceLAB2.


4. Create a Project File

The default save location is under My Documents/ForceLAB2.

For now, we will name the project "PressureScan II Quick Start."


5. Set Up Device and Sensor

   When creating a project for the first time, you need to set up the controller device and sensors.

   Select "Baikal-II" as the device name.

   Click the "Add Sensor" button on the right and select the sensor you will use.

   Let's assume you are using the "SFC4300CX" sensor.

   If you make a mistake, you can double-click the sensor name to bring up the list again.



6. Connect and Set Up Baikal II Port


   Now you need to set up the COM port to connect Baikal II.

   First, click on the port button to check the list.

   Generally, if no devices using COM ports are connected, you will see "Auto" and "Reset." 

Depending on your PC, you might also see "COM1."

   Now connect Baikal II to your PC.




   On the right side of the Baikal II controller, you will find a port for connecting a USB Type-C cable. 

   Connect the Type-C end of the USB cable to the Baikal II controller.

   Connect the other end (Type-A) of the USB cable to a USB slot on your PC.


   In ForceLAB2, click the port button and select "Reset."

   Check the ports again, and you should see a new port generated.

   Select the new port (Baikal II).

   Generally, once a port number is generated on a PC, it remains the same.


7. Connect Baikal II with the Sensor

   Now let's connect the sensor to the controller.

   The interface board may vary depending on the sensor, 

but typically the sensor and interface board are provided connected.




8. Arrange Sensors for Real-Time Analysis

   Return to ForceLAB2 and click on the Real-Time Analysis tab.

   Click on the sensor in the sensor list, and options will appear in the bottom right corner.

   ※ Please refer to the ForceLAB2 manual for detailed instructions.

   Click on the blue screen to place the sensor.


9. Run Real-Time Analysis

   Click the Run button to start the real-time analysis.


10. Verify Real-Time Analysis Operation

   Set the display mode to Accumulate Mode, 

then press the sensor in an "X" pattern to ensure it displays correctly on the screen.



   The installation and operation verification are now complete.

   Insert the sensor into the desired area to measure pressure distribution.
