All RBR products use a single piece of software: Ruskin. Compatible with PCs and Macs, it is the only application needed to deploy, download, and display the data from your logger.

Ruskin can also be used to simulate instruments or deployments, estimate battery autonomy and memory usage for different scenarios.

Ruskin is free and easy to install and simple to use.
