Load multiple routes from AMS Machinery Manager to the analyzer


Ensure the same connection type is set on the analyzer and in Data Transfer. The Ethernet and Wireless options may require additional setup to connect to the desired computer. See the Ethernet and Wireless sections and your IT group for more information.


Load a Multiple Route Load (MRL) file containing multiple routes from an AMS Machinery Manager database. MRL files help you efficiently load multiple routes at one time. Create a MRL file in AMS Machinery Manager.

After you load the routes, the analyzer does not group them using the MRL file. The routes are individual files that you individually transfer back to AMS Machinery Manager after you collect data.
Note: AMS Standalone Data Transfer cannot transfer MRL files.


  1. Use the appropriate cable to connect your analyzer to a computer where AMS Machinery Manager is installed, if you are using a wired connection.
  2. On the computer, open Data Transfer.
  3. On the analyzer, press Home > F8 Route > ALT > F9 Route Mgnt.
    The Route Management screen displays.
    Note: If you have not loaded or activated a route, the Route Management screen opens when you press F8 Route from the analyzer Home screen.
  4. Press F7 Connect For Transfer.
    The analyzer connects to AMS Machinery Manager, and a new tab displays the analyzer ID.
