Button Colors

Charging: The button will continuously blink green when Aeroscope has finished charging and is still plugged into a power source. It will blink yellow while Aeroscope is still actively charging.

Connection: The button will flash green once when Aeroscope connects to a device.

Press while Connected: The button will flash green when it is pressed and Aeroscope is connected. It will not flash when pressed if Aeroscope isn't connected.

Reset: The button will flash green once when Aeroscope wakes from "Deep Sleep" or if Aeroscope is reset for any reason. This will happen as long as the battery voltage is high enough. If the battery is dead, the button will flash yellow and Aeroscope will go to "Deep Sleep".

Button press

Pressing Aeroscope's button while connected will toggle the scope between "Run" and "Stop" mode. This is a handy way to stop or start the oscilloscope when you want to analyze captured data. Pressing the button when not connected has no affect.

The button can also be used to wake the device from "Deep Sleep".
