The GM41 tool displays decoded Xdata protocol frames of selected instruments connected to the RS41 in a web browser. The purpose of GM41 is to verify that certain connected instruments are working properly while sounding preparation and data acquisition during laboratory experiments, and that the recorded data are within expected limits. GM41 is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7 or 10 and the Vaisala MW41 sounding software 2.6.0 to 2.11. Currently several Xdata sensors are supported, like the Cryogenic Frost-Point Hygrometer (CFH), the Compact Optical Backscatter Aerosol Detector (COBALD) and the Balloon Optical Fluorescent Hygrometer (FLASH-B).
