Preferably use the VU-AMS DAMS suite. Only if you have a good reason or if you have been explicitly told to do so; use the software suite below.

Please note Internet Explorer somehow changes the file extension from .msi to .man when downloading the setups below. To solve this choose Save as and change the extension back to .msi to be able to run the setup.

VU-AMS5fs software suite (previous version)

To be able to use the VU-AMS5fs and its datafiles, specialized software is needed which can be downloaded here free of charge after you purchased a VU-AMS5fs device. This software is tested on Windows XP and should be compatible with Windows 9X/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7.

AmsConfigure This is a communication program, for configuring the VU-AMS5fs device.
AmsMerge This program can be used to merge multiple 5fs files.
AmsPreProcessor This program can be used for preprocessing the 5fs file to native AMS format (separate channel files) ; exporting to ASCII, EDF or Biopac.
AmsQRS This program can be used for automated scoring the R-Peaks in the raw ECG signal and (interactive) visual inspection of the final IBI time series.AMSRES
AmsGraph This program can be used for visual inspection of raw signals.
AmsRevertFormat (optional:) create data files that are compatible with the AMS46 software suite.
  Programs from the previous VU-AMS software suite:
AMSGRA This program can be used to display a VU-AMS registration graphically. It can also be used to attach labels to certain recorded time intervals and retrieve basic statistics on these periods.
AMSASC This program can be used to convert binary VU-AMS data files to ASCII format.
AMSRES This program can be used to view and score respiration (dZ) data.
AMSIMP This program can be used to view and score ICG data.

Please note that, if you use the AMSi Infrared serial communication interface cable for USB; you will need to install a driver. We found out you will need to run the third party setup below twice to install the driver.

AMSi driver

Download driver for Infrared serial communication interface

Run the driver for the Infrared serial communication interface cable twice (!) to properly install the driver

The table below gives another overview of the programs (in bold face) that are part of the VU-AMS5fs software package.

VU-AMS4.6 software suite (previous version)

To use the previous VU-AMS4.6 or older versions you will need to download the software below. You may also use these programs with data collected with the new VU-AMS5fs version after converting it with AmsRevertFormat.

Download VU-AMS4.6 version 1.3.8.4

AMSCOM This is a communication program, which can be used to monitor incoming bio-signals and to initialize the VU-AMS-device or save a registration.
AMSGRA This program can be used to display a VU-AMS registration graphically. It can also be used to attach labels to certain recorded time intervals and retrieve basic statistics on these periods.
AMSASC This program can be used to convert binary VU-AMS data files to ASCII format.
AMSCAR This program can be used to extract interbeat interval (IBI) time series for use with spectral analyses.
AMSRES This program can be used to view and score respiration (dZ) data.
AMSIMP This program can be used to view and score ICG data.
AMSTIM This utility can be used to change the stamps and event times of ams files.
LabelMerge This utility can be used to merge collect data from label files and store it into one large file.
