Touchscreen (TWE/TWP and TSB) Quick Start Guide
About Touchscreen Devices
- There are three different model types of touchscreen devices. The TWE/TWP are touchscreen devices that are meant to be connected to the DicksonOne software application, and the TSB model is meant to be used as a standalone data logger.
- For the TSB model, all settings will be configured on the device itself and for the TWE/TWP models some settings will be configured through DicksonOne.
