PTS Connect Adapter User Guide
User Guide
Intended Use
The PTS Connect™ adapter featuring Bluetooth® technology is intended for use by
professional customers. The PTS Connect adapter can be inserted into the MEMo Chip®
port of a CardioChek® PA or CardioChek® Plus analyzer and the results can be
transferred to a computer. For professional use only.
Compatibility
The PTS Connect adapter is designed to work with Bluetooth-equipped systems running
Windows or Android.
Installation of PTS Connect adapter in analyzer / Installation of MEMo Chip
 Ensure the CardioChek analyzer is turned off. If the CardioChek analyzer is on, turn it
off by pressing and holding both buttons until the analyzer shuts off.
 The PTS Connect adapter may only be installed into the analyzer’s MEMo Chip port.
No other accessory (such as a printer cable) should be simultaneously connected to
the MEMo Chip port.
 Insert the PTS Connect adapter into the MEMo Chip port with the PTS Connect logo
facing towards the front of the analyzer.
 Insert the MEMo Chip into the PTS Connect adapter with the label facing towards
the back of the analyzer.
When using the CardioChek PA analyzer with the PTS Connect adapter, the analyzer
must be set to PC Output. (Refer to the CardioChek PA user guide for instructions.) No
setting changes are required for the CardioChek Plus analyzer.
Pairing
Follow the computer’s operating system procedure to pair a device.
1. Insert the device into an analyzer and power-on the analyzer. The device should be
discoverable, with a device name of PTS-{Bluetooth ID}. Verify that the ID printed
on the top side of the PTS Connect adapter matches the digits after “PTS-” in name
of the device discovered by the computer.
2. Only pair one PTS Connect adapter to one PC or Android device at a time. Pairing
the PTS Connect adapter with multiple devices introduces a risk that test results
could be mistakenly sent to the wrong device.
3. When prompted by the operating system for a PIN number, enter the number
printed on the bottom side of the PTS Connect adapter.
4. If the PIN number has been entered correctly, the computer will successfully pair
with the PTS Connect adapter.
5. Run a sample test or send a result from the analyzer memory to the data capture
application. (See the CardioChek analyzer user guide for running a test or sending
results from memory.)

“Add a device” in the Microsoft®
Windows 7 operating system.
Other operating systems may
have a different appearance.
2. Enter the PIN code window
3. Success window

Un-pairing
Follow the computer’s operating system’s procedure to un-pair the PTS Connect adapter.
Auto-connect
The auto-connect feature allows automatic reestablishment of a connection when the
analyzer is turned off and on while a connection is established.
Microsoft Windows Operating Systems
The PTS Connect adapter typically appears as two separate COM ports, one incoming and
one outgoing. The PC’s incoming and outgoing COM ports can be seen in the PC’s
Bluetooth Settings. The outgoing COM port must be opened once to establish a
connection. Subsequent connections may use the incoming port, which supports autoconnect functionality.
1. Pair the adapter as described above.
2. Without turning off the analyzer, make a connection from the PC’s outgoing COM
port (typically the lowest assigned COM port for the device). If the analyzer is
turned off or times out before the connection is made, the auto-connect feature will
not work and the PTS Connect adapter must be unpaired and pairing process restarted. Right click on the Bluetooth icon and right click on Bluetooth settings and
select COM Port tab. Look for the PTS-{Bluetooth ID} address label.
3. Open the incoming COM port.
4. Connection with this port will now be re-established automatically any time the
incoming port is opened and the PTS Connect adapter is powered.
Android Operating System
1. Pair the adapter per operating system instructions.
2. Without turning off the analyzer, make a connection with the PTS Connect adapter
with an Android App. If the analyzer is turned off or times out before the connection
is made, the auto-connect feature will not work and the PTS Connect adapter must
be unpaired and pairing process re-started.
3. Connection with this port will now be re-established automatically any time the port
is opened and the PTS Connect adapter is powered.
Troubleshooting
The PTS Connect adapter cannot be discovered
 Ensure the adapter is properly plugged into the analyzer.
 Ensure the analyzer is powered on.
 Ensure the adapter is within 3 meters of the computer.
 Ensure that at least 60 seconds have elapsed between powering on the analyzer
and attempting to pair the adapter.
 Ensure that any Bluetooth filtering in the computer’s application is disabled so
that all devices may be seen.
