What are the software requirements for the physiology sensors?

The following is a synopsis of the software requirements for the BTA style physiology sensors.
Logger Pro 3.4 or newer is needed for the four BTA style physiology sensors.

Blood Pressure Sensor, order code BPS-BTA, $109 requires Logger Pro 3.4 or newer or Logger Lite 1.3 or newer. This sensor will work in Logger Pro 3.3 but the data collected are simply pressure vs. time. It does not contain the algorithm necessary for calculating blood pressure. The sensor must be plugged into the interface before starting the software for the "nice" auto-id file with systolic and diastolic pressures to appear.

Spirometer, order code SPR-BTA, $219 requires Logger Pro 3.4 or newer. We do not recommend Logger Lite for the Spirometer.

Hand Dynamometer, order code HD-BTA, $108 can be used with either Logger Pro 3.4 or newer or Logger Lite 1.3 or newer. Since it is essentially a Force Sensor, it has no special auto-id file. These sensors read very close to zero right off the shelf.

Hand-Grip Heart Rate Monitor, order code HGH-BTA, $119 can be used with the same software as the Exercise Heart Rate Monitor. The receiver is the same and does not require anything new. It should be plugged in before opening the program so that the "nice" auto-id file appears.
