How do I mark an experiment step as complete?

How do I mark an experiment step as complete?

You might not be able to complete an entire experiment during a session. If you do not complete the entire experiment, one useful tool for reminding you where you left off, is to mark the steps that you have already finished as complete. The visual clue will allow you to start right where you left off. By marking the step complete, you are still able to view and collect data for the step, so do not worry that you will not be able to review what you were able to finish, or refresh your memory on what the experiment was all about!

To mark an experiment step as complete, from the experiment main page, tap the status box in the upper right hand of the step you want to mark complete! You will see a green check mark that lets you know right where you left off in the experiment process. Tap the status box again and the check box will be removed.

Step 1 – Locate the power button for the Climate Sensor.

climate-sensor-front-mu

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2 – Depress the power button and hold for 5 full seconds.

 

The Climate Sensor will now turn the flashing green status light OFF. The Climate Sensor will now be powered down. If the Climate Sensor status light continues to flash, repeat Step 2 above. You may not have depressed the power button for the full 5 seconds.

How do I turn ON my Climate Sensor?

Powering On the Climate Sensor

 

To turn the Climate Sensor ON, you will need the Climate Sensor that has been charged.

Step 1 – Locate the power button for the Climate Sensor.

climate-sensor-front-mu

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2 – Depress the power button for two full seconds.

 

The Climate Sensor will now display a flashing green light, which lets you know the unit is ON and ready to be used. The green light will flash on every 5 seconds when the unit is ON. If the Climate Sensor does not power ON, the unit may need to be charged.

How do I charge my Climate Sensor?

Charging the Climate Sensor

 

To Charge the Climate Sensor, you will need the Climate Sensor, the power cord and a power source. The power source can be an outlet or a USB connection.

Step 1 – Locate the charging port for the Climate Sensor.

climate-sensor-front-wmu

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2 – Identify the charging end of the power cord.

For the USB method:

Step 4.2 – You will use the charging cord without any adapters for the USB configuration.

 

Step 5 – Plug the charging cord into the appropriate charging method.

 

                  For the wall outlet method:

               Step 5.1 – You will plug the outlet adapter into a wall outlet

PLUGGED-INTO-OUTLET

 

               For the USB method:

              Step 5.2 – You will plug the USB end of the charging cord into a USB slot

USB-CONNECTED-TO-PC

 

You will see an illuminated green light if you have plugged the charging cord into your power source correctly. The green light lets you know that the Climate Sensor is charging successfully. If you do not see an illuminated green light, you may need to check to see if your power source to charge from is providing power. You can charge the Climate Sensor even if it is currently in the ON status.
