The purpose of the PI Configurator software utility is to be able to set up sensors to transmit on different communication channels.
Several PI equipped vessels may then operate simultaneously in the same area without interference. The PI Configurator software utility also allows you to change the update rate on each sensor. This is the time elapsed between each data transmission from the sensor to the host PI system.
The PI Configurator software utility runs on a standard computer. A special interface cable - PI CIC - is required to communicate with the sensor.
