Sample Device Files for ECOView 1.16

Device files allow ECOView to provide processed data output where applicable. All values for device files can be obtained from the characterization sheet for your meter. These include the meter serial number, date, scale factor, dark counts, max voltage, and ASV 1, 2, and 4. Information is tab-delimited.
