Quick Start Manual
Installation Guide
Installing the Software
Insert the Omega Software Flash Drive in an open USB port. If the autorun does not appear, locate the drive
on the computer and double click on Autorun.exe. Follow the instructions provided in the Installation Wizard.
Installing the Interface Cable
- OM-CP-IFC400 or OM-CP-IFC406
Refer to the “Quick Start Guide” included in the package.
Device Operation
Connecting and Starting the Data Logger
-- Once the software is installed and running, plug the interface cable into the docking station.
-- Connect the USB end of the interface cable into an open USB port on the computer.
-- Place the data logger into the docking station.
-- The data logger will automatically appear under Connected Devices within the software.
-- For most applications, select “Custom Start” from the menu bar and choose the desired start method,
reading rate and other parameters appropriate for the data logging application and click “Start”. (“Quick
Start” applies the most recent custom start options, “Batch Start” is used for managing multiple loggers at once,
“Real Time Start” stores the dataset as it records while connected to the logger.)
-- The status of the device will change to “Running”, “Waiting to Start” or “Waiting to Manual Start”,
depending upon your start method.
-- Disconnect the data logger from the docking station and place it in the environment to measure.
Note: The device will stop recording data when the end of memory is reached or the device is stopped, unless user selectable
memory wrap is enabled. At this point the device cannot be restarted until it has been re-armed by the computer.
Stopping and Downloading Data from the Data Logger
-- Connect the data logger via the OM-CP-IFC400 or OM-CP-IFC406 docking station.
-- Highlight the data logger in the Connected Devices list. Click “Stop” on the menu bar.
-- Once the data logger is stopped, with the logger highlighted, click “Download”. You will be prompted to
name your report.
-- Downloading will offload and save all the recorded data to the PC.
Troubleshooting Tips
Why is the data logger not appearing in the software?
If the OM-CP-TEMP1000IS-A doesn’t appear in the Connected Devices panel, or an error message is received
while using either, try the following:
• Check that the OM-CP-IFC400 is properly connected. For more information, see Troubleshooting Interface Cable problems (below).
• Ensure that the battery is not discharged. For best voltage accuracy, use a voltage meter connected to the
battery of the device. If possible, try switching the battery with a new OM-CP-BAT102.
• Ensure that no other Omega software is running in the background.
• Ensure that Omega Software is being used.
• Ensure that the Connected Devices panel is large enough to display devices. This can be verified by
positioning the cursor on the edge of the Connected Devices panel until the resize cursor appears, then
dragging the edge of the panel to resize it. The screen layout may also be reset in the options menu by
selecting File, Options, and scrolling to the bottom.
Troubleshooting Interface Cable problems
Check that the software properly recognizes the connected OM-CP-IFC400 interface cable.
If the data logger is not appearing in the Connected Devices list, it may be that the OM-CP-IFC400 is not
properly connected.
1. In the software, click the File button, then click Options.
2. In the Options window, click Communications.
3. The Detected Interfaces box will list all of the available communication interfaces. If the OM-CPIFC400 is listed here, then the software has correctly recognized and is ready to use it.
Check that Windows recognizes the connected OM-CP-IFC400 interface cable.
If the software does not recognize the OM-CP-IFC400, there may be a problem with Windows or the USB
1. In Windows, click Start, right-click Computer and choose Properties or press Windows+Break as a
keyboard shortcut.
2. Click Device Manager in the left hand column.
3. Double click Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
4. Look for an entry for Data logger Interface.
5. If the entry is present, and there are no warning messages or icons, then windows has correctly
recognized the connected OM-CP-IFC400.
6. If the entry is not present, or has an exclamation point icon next to it, the USB drivers may need to be
installed. These are available on the software flash drive included with the OM-CP-IFC400.
Ensure that the USB end of the OM-CP-IFC400 is securely connected to the computer.
1. Locate the USB-A plug of the OM-CP-IFC400.
2. If the interface cable is connected to the PC, unplug it. Wait ten seconds.
3. Reconnect the cable to the PC.
4. Check to make sure that the red LED is lit, indicating a successful connection.

Quick Start Manual
Product Maintenance
Battery Replacement
Materials: Replacement Battery (OM-CP-BAT102)
-- Carefully unscrew the data logger encasement to separate the top from the bottom of the device.
-- The battery is the purple cylinder inside the data logger.
-- Gently slip out the old battery.
-- Insert the new battery.
-- Reassemble the data logger encasement by screwing the sections back together, ensuring that the fit is
tightly sealed.
O-Ring maintenance is a key factor when properly caring for the OM-CP-TEMP1000IS-A. The O-Rings ensure a
tight seal and prevent liquid from entering the inside of the device.
Note: For more information refer to the OM-CP-TEMP1000IS-A Intrinsic Safety user notice.
Standard recalibration for the OM-CP-TEMP1000IS-A is one point, 25°C.
Recalibration is recommended annually for any Omega data logger; a reminder is automatically displayed in
the software when the device is due.

Compliance Information
• “This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received,
including interference that may cause undesired operation.”
• “To satisfy FCC RF Exposure requirements for mobile and base station transmission devices, a separation distance
of 20cm or more should be maintained between the antenna of this device and persons during operation. To
ensure compliance, operation at closer than this distance is not recommended. The antenna(s) used for this
transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.”
• “This device complies with Industry Canada license-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to the
following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.
Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d’Industrie Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts de licence.
L’exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes: (1) l’appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et (2)
l’utilisateur de l’appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le brouillage est susceptible
d’en compromettre le fonctionnement.”
• “Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio transmitter may only operate using an antenna of a type
and maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential radio
interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically
radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for successful communication.
Conformément à la réglementation d’Industrie Canada, le présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une
antenne d’un type et d’un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour l’émetteur par Industrie Canada. Dans le
but de réduire les risques de brouillage radioélectrique à l’intention des autres utilisateurs, il faut choisir le type
d’antenne et son gain de sorte que la puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas l’intensité
nécessaire à l’établissement d’une communication satisfaisante.”
