PosiSoft Desktop Software supersedes the original PosiSoft Desktop Manager.

We encourage all customers to download the newest version of PosiSoft Desktop Software (https://www.defelsko.com/posisoft/posisoft-desktop) to enable you to keep your PosiTector gauge * firmware up-to-date. Remember: PosiSoft Software Solutions are completely free!

When installed,the original PDM runs as a start-up application and resides in the Windows notification area (system tray) of a PC. PDM is a utility used primarily for the functions noted above. It does not download (import) measurements from your gage and does not have any reporting capabilities.
