Recorded data can be transferred to a PC using the MI70 Link program that allows examining the recorded data easily in the Microsoft Windows® environment and processing it further on a spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel®. Both logged and real-time measurement data can be transferred.

PC data transfer requires the MI70 Link Windows® software and a Vaisala USB cable (item code 219687). An RS-232 serial connection cable can also be used. The MI70 Link software is available from the Vaisala website:

Make sure the MI70 indicator is powered off before setting up a connection between the MI70 and your PC.

To set up an MI70 Link connection:

  1. Install the MI70 Link software according to the instructions on the installation wizard.

    Do not connect the USB cable to your PC during installation.

  2. When the installation has completed, connect the USB cable to the USB port on your PC.

    Windows detects the new cable, and starts automatically using the driver installed with MI70 Link.

  3. Connect the other end of the USB cable to the MI70 indicator.
  4. Switch on MI70.
  5. You can now access the readings from the PC with MI70 Link. If MI70 Link cannot discover the instrument, check the following:
    • The device is powered on
    • The cable is properly connected
    • Another application has not reserved the connection.
Before downloading data files to your PC, first save a copy of the files in MI70 Link if you need to keep the data for later use. The files are not automatically backed up in MI70 or MI70 Link.
