Data transfer into Cyclone is simple.

Switch on the BLK360 by pressing the only button. Wait until the status indicator is solid green, meaning the BLK360 is ready to connect via wireless network to your PC. The BLK360 acts as a wireless access point. (Note: if you are working on a deskctop, make sure you actually have a WiFi connection)

The construction segment is one of the biggest factors driving most economies. Therefore, we also need future innovation in other industries. Especially when we look at the increasing costs and time pressures during the last years. Consequently, more and more contractors are using plasterboard construction to build walls and partitions inside buildings. This saves a lot of time and money in comparison to the classic brick wall style. Following the transition to new materials, we also need innovation in the working process.
