TPC supports both the Criterion 300 and 400 file formats. The impulse laser can emulate the Criterion 400.
You can Import from a file or connect directly to the TDS data collector and transfer data via the serial port on your computer.
The Criterion does not support exporting data to it.
The Import dialog displays the bytes that have been downloaded from the Criterion to the computer.
The Import dialog will notify you when the transfer is complete.
TPC will add a new traverse to the survey and put all the imported points into it. The imported points also show up in the Points Manager. If you don't want the traverse you can delete it. The points will remain in the Points Manager.
