How Do I Connect to my Hawkin Dynamics Force Plates?

Directions for connecting and troubleshooting connection to your plates.

To connect to your Hawkin Dynamics Force Plates, you'll need to have your Hawkin Account set up and the Hawkin Capture app installed on an Android device.  

  1. To connect to your plates, start by powering them on by pressing the on/off button on the right plate.  
  2. Wait until the LED indicator light flashes Blue-White-Green in a fast rhythm - this indicates the plates have booted and are in pairing mode. 
  3. Open the Hawkin Capture app and click "Connect"
  4. Wait for the correct plate to show up in the connection dialog and tap it when ready to connect.
