Troubleshoot USB Connection
One of our Topcon DL-502 digital levels is failing to communicate with an FC-5000 field controller running MAGNET Field software. We know for sure it isn't the level or the cables (USB and RS-232C). I'm assuming the problem is with the FC-5000. I don't want to give up my FC-5000 so the FC-5000 in question can get sent to the shop. Any suggestions for a fix?
I have an sdl30 and connect to magnet with an Bluetooth dongle. Ask your supplier as I don't know if this will work with your field book.
Give me a call and I will explain how to connect a DL-502 to FC5000 and Magnet with Bluetooth, no cables. Your dealer will NOT help you with this.
@leegreen why wouldn't the topcon dealer want to help him. Here in Belgium they are always willing to find solutions.
Because the Topcon dealer thinks they need to sell you a Bluetooth enabled Digital Level. Which cost nearly twice as much as the DL-502. I can't disclose this process online, as Topcon may disable it in future releases of software, as they have done in the past.
