Download our free HB Tool. With this specailly developed software you can set up and calibrate sensors from HB Products. The Tool can be installed on a PC running MS Windows. Both sensors with a M12 - 5 pin connector and a DIN 43650/ISO 4400 - 4 pin can be connected using an USB cable.
The HB Tool can detect the connected sensor and shows all the parameters you can set for the sensor. The data can be stored on the sensor like you store data on a USB stick. The tool can also be used for calibration and for troubleshooting in the system.
The sensors from HB Products typically deliver an analog 4-20 mA signal as measurement result. The signal can be wired over a long distance without compromising the accuracy. The signal is typically used as input in a PLC for controlling the system. Some sensors have a digital output to be used in a relay, or they have an output cable which can control a valve directly. Some of the sensors has a LED output for showing power supply, an alarm or other simple output.

Troubleshooting - software
If you double click on a HB Tool application, and the tool does not start, your .jar association has been hijacked. You can fix the problem with Jarfix.
The problem ...
The root cause for the problem above is, that a program has stolen the .jar association. If you have installed the Java Runtime Environment the first time, the file type called "jar" is assigned to javaw.exe correctly. "jar" is an abbreviation for "java archive" and javaw.exe is the correct program to execute a .jar. However, on Windows any program can steal a file type at any time even if it is already associated with a program. Many zip/unzip programs prefer to do this, because a jar is stored in the .zip format. If you doubleclick on a .jar, your pack program opens the file, rather than javaw runs the program, because your pack program ignores the meta information which are also stored in a .jar. In the Oracle bug database there is the low-priority report 4912211 "add mechanism to restore hijacked .jar and .jnlp file extensions", but it has been closed as "Closed, Will Not Fix".
The workaround ...
Re-install the Java Runtime Environment or fix the Windows Registry manually each time this problem occurs.
The solution ...
You can fix this problem very easy with the small but reliable jarfix.exe program. The program can be downloaded on this site:
