Infrared Communications/Latest PPP Software

Basic settings for data transmission on Win95

How to use your PC's internal infrared on Windows 95

You can transfer information between Polar S610 / S710 / S810 HR monitors and Polar Precision Performance SW 3.0, by the internal infrared only if you have Windows 95 installed. In Win95, the infrared works as a generic serial port. In Windows 98 / Windows Me / Windows 2000 / Windows XP a COM port is handled as a virtual port. Due to this technical difference, i.e. lack of physical serial port it is not possible to use the Polar Precision Performance SW 3.0 and Polar S610 / S710 / S810 Heart Rate Monitors with these operating systems.

Note! Polar i-models e.g. Polar S710i support IrDA protocol in IR communication and the PC's built-in port can be used to transfer data without making the following settings.

When using an internal infrared you need to take following things into consideration:

1. The Windows Infrared Monitor should be disabled. Normally, the following icon is displayed on the taskbar.

Right-click the icon and deselect Enable infrared communication on the opened shortcut menu.

If the icon is not shown, you can disable it also through the Windows Control Panel. Select Start Settings Control Panel and double-click the Infrared icon. Deselect the Enable infrared communication item on the Optionstab.

2. Open Polar Precision Performance SW 3.0. Select Options Preferences Hardware tab and press the Options button. Select the Use Internal Infrared Port (Win95 only) item and press the OK button.

3. Select the port for the infrared communication on the IR Communication Port field. You can check a computer's ports using the System function on the Windows Control Panel. If the port that seems to be right does not work, also try the other ports. Sometimes there is different information in the Windows than in the BIOS level.

4. Close any other programs that use the IR port. For example, the Palm HotSync software reserves the port for itself always when the computer starts. You need to exit the program to release the IR port for other devices. To exit Palm HotSync, right-click on HotSync icon at the taskbar and uncheck Local selection or exit entire software.

5. Polar Precision Performance SW 3.0 uses SIR (Slow Infrared) communication. Check in BIOS settings that the SIR is selected instead of FIR (Fast Infrared). In some computers (laptops) the selection can be switched. If the computer uses FIR and it can not be switched to SIR, internal infrared with Polar Precision Performance SW 3.0 can not be used.

When using the IR communication, also check the following things during communication:

1. When using the communication be sure that the monitor is in the CONNECT mode that can be selected by pressing the lower right button.

2. Keep the distance between the HR monitor and the internal port as short as possible ( recommended maximum 15 cm / 6" ).

3. Check that there is not too much sun light, because it might disturb the communication.

4. A bleak surface may interfere with the IR communication.

5. Check that there is not any other IR devices near.

6. Check that the low battery indicator on the monitor display is not shown.
