B-Alert Pairing of Headset and Dongle/ESU

B-Alert headsets are shipped paired to either a B-Alert Dongle or an ESU. If the pairing is lost, the devices must be re-synced using the B-Alert Live software, which is included with your AcqKnowledge installation. B-Alert Live supports AcqKnowledge B-Alert functionality and is installed to the following default directory: Main Drive:\ABM\B-Alert\Rome\

  1. Browse to the above directory and launch the B-Alert Live software by double-clicking the Rome.exe icon.B-Alert Rome icon
  2. Plug the Bluetooth receiver (i.e., dongle or ESU) into your PC. Note: Ensure that all nearby B-Alert products, including headsets and other dongles/ESUs, are turned off and unplugged.

  5. Click the “Search Devices” button and wait. Allow 45-60 seconds for the USB device to search for other Bluetooth devices in range.
  6. After the search has completed, all Bluetooth devices identified in range will appear under the “Select Device” drop down menu.
  7. Look for the B-Alert headset. The device should have a 12 digit BDA address followed by: (ABM EEG XXXXXXXXX). Example: 000BCE042CCA (ABM EEG 300103056):
