When is a bin file created
In case your instrument was damaged and you cannot sync your instrument anymore. It is possible to send it to our repair lab to perform a data extraction. Bin files are created for and by tech support.
In the even an instrument need to be repaired, an evaluation of the instrument must be made first, to find out if a repair is possible.
Depending on the damage or the condition of the instrument, it may not always be possible to fix it or extract data from the instrument.
If an emergency repair is possible, and data can be extracted, it will be saved in a special binary file (.bin).
This file is referred to as a raw data file. It is the equivalent of the data being read by the Manager when doing a sync.
How to import the raw file ( .BIN)

.bin files are name including the serial number of the instrument where the data was extracted from.
