After the STS/RRL Gold Software has been started, the STS/RRL Administrator screen will open. From here, you can create new STS Gold sites, edit existing sites, delete existing sites, and open site data.
An alarm clock icon shown beside a datalogger on the Administrator screen indicates that an alarm condition has been set for this datalogger. It does not mean an alarm condition has been met.
