BSL Lesson data—Open and analyze data recorded with the Biopac Student Lab Lesson software.
BSL PRO data—This analysis only version can open files created with BSL PRO (i.e. data from PRO Lessons) in Lessons RSD mode, which limits functionality (no Transform menu, etc.)—it does not support the full BSL PRO mode. To open a BSL PRO file, first rename the file as follows, depending on the type of computer it was recorded on:
For files recorded on a Mac computer: Rename to add the .acq” file extension
For files recorded on a Windows computer: Rename to follow the naming convention for Lessons – BIOPACfile-L18
Note that there is no dot.
The number does not have to be 18—it can be any two digit number between 01 and 99.
You can have any sequence of letters before -L. For example, file-L03, ECGtest-L77 and Longfilename-L11 are all legitimate file names.
NOTE—If you are not able to open the data file after changing the naming convention, check to see if you have file extensions hidden in your Windows folder options.
