BBraun Spacecom BCC Protocol 3.37 (update?) #563

Dear Team

We currently run the latest firmware from BBraun on our SpaceCom station with BCC Protocol 3.37 (alternatives are only BCC 3.26). With the protocol 3.37, we can connect to the SpaceCom in VitalRecorder, the arrows indicate that there is data transfer, but we do not receive any meaningful data from the infusion pumps (only one pump running at 0 ml/h independent of real infusion rate). Is there an update / solution to this problem? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you very much for your reply

Kindest regards

K. Bachmann

Dear Team

First of all, thank you for the very nice software.

I have the exact same problem connecting a Braun SpaceStation running the BCC 3.37 or the BCC 3.26 protocols, with no option of running the BCC 3.34 protocol required by VitalDB.
I have tried both the BCC 3.26 and the 3.37 protocols. When the 3.26 protocol is used, VitalDB does not collect data from the pumps, and when the 3.37 protocol is used, VitalDB detects the pumps and collects what seems like random data (wrong infusion rates or no rates from running pumps).

I would greatly appreciate it if you could help me get the system running. Would it be possible to make a BCC 3.37 interface?

Regards, and once again, thank you for the great software.
