I am working with beaglebone and philips intelliVue series. The command "echo  -app ICE_Device_Interface -domain 6 -device IntellivueEthernet -address > device.this" is not reading IP_Address. Please help.

I've been attempting to connect to our IntelliVue MX800 over LAN with the OpenICE demo apps.

I have established a network connection to the monitor from my laptop successfully, and can ping the device. However, I'm unable to get the device adapter to connect to the monitor over LAN.

I inspected network traffic with Wireshark, and saw no communication at all addressed to the monitor IP that I entered when starting the device adapter.

Hello all,

I know that this topic has been covered extensively, but I haven't seemed to have any luck for months already. I have been attempting to connect the Phillips MX800 to my computer to collect data from it. I am following the directions exactly, but have no luck at all. The monitor is in the simulation room at the local hospital so I have freedom to play with it at the hospital, but not to bring it to a lab.

I'm not sure at this point if it's an issue with the monitor, and I don't know how to find out if it is or isn't. When I connect directly to the computer with the keyspan tripplite adapter, or when I connect with the beaglebone black with the openICE debian running I can't see any signal, and on the monitor settings I'm going exactly according to the instructions on the phillips manual.

My background in computers and engineering isn't strong (I'm a biology student), but I feel like at this stage I'm missing something and I just can't seem to find what it is. I recently found an intellibridge ec10, but I can't find how to access the data from that either. If somebody could help me I would be extremely appreciative and would be happy to assist in some way too.

Thank you for any assistance in advance, and a big thank you to this community in general for all the hard work put into this project, it's a great tool.

I'm starting a project using the Raspberry Pi with OpenICE. I downloaded the zip file, but when I try to run the OpenICE script within the bin directory, nothing happens. I am pretty new to RPi so any help would be great. Thank you

Dear MDPnP Group, 

We are currently working on a multi-site study that will be analyzing waveform data recorded from patients in the ICU. We have been purchasing software for each site that allows us to export waveform data to a file that can be analyzed at a later time. Many of our sites have Philips MP70 monitors, however, so it is possible that MDPnP could be used as an alternate means to obtain the data. 

Does the current version of MDPnP allow waveform data to be saved to a file? If not, would it be difficult to modify to permit data export? I would be willing to try some coding myself, if perhaps you could point me to the most reasonable places to start. From another comment on the discussion forum, it sounds like you have export working with MongoDB in your lab. We are looking at using MongoDB for the waveforms in our lab as well, so I would be interested in learning more about this solution.

I also have a comment about the adapter setup example for the MP70 on your website ( ). In your example, you mention that a "Cisco console cable" can be used to connect to the serial port of the Philips monitor. I ordered one, but the cable did not work; later, after I googled the pinout of the Cisco console cable, I noticed that pins 4 and 5 of the RJ45 are typically grounded, but the Philips cable requires pin 5 of the RJ45 to be the Tx->Rx signal for the RJ45->DB9 connection. Perhaps it was a different type of console cable?

We are watching your project with interest in our lab- thank you for all your effort in this area.

Many thanks for your help!

Kind regards,

I'm installed OpenICe on Win7, after starting the application and selecting ICE_Device_Interface, I full fill the flowing information :

1. Device Category --> Simulated

2. Device Type --> Simulated Pulse Oximeter

3. Domain ID --> 15

The application couldn't start with two error messages

1. Error invoking methods

2. Failed to launch JVM

Could you please explain me the causes of these errors.

I currently have OpenICE connected to an Intellivue MP90. We get the waveform data from the ART BP line but there's we're not receiving any numbers (i.e. Sys/Dia/Mean).

Any idea?

Dylan Bagshaw 6 months ago


Thank you for pointing this out. It appears the adapter for the Philips monitors is not passing this information along to the OpenICE app. However, our GE devices share the MDC_PRESS_BLD_SYS, MDC_PRESS_BLD_MEAN and MDC_PRESS_BLD_DIA in the OpenICE app.

Unfortunately, we currently lack the developer work force to tackle projects like these. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Can you please tell me if medical devices can communicate with OpenICE Device-adapter using wireless connections like WIFI, Bluetooth... because in docs they mentionned that the medical device can communicate with OpenICE device adapter just through serial- connection.

Please refer to responses on your previous post.

As mentioned, the Nonin bluetooth pulse ox is a wireless device you can use with OpenICE.

Imad Eddine 9 months ago in OpenICE • updated by Dylan Bagshaw 6 months ago 5

Hello everyone,

I want to test OpenICE with a real medical devices, could I find any medical devices on Amazon or another websites that are compatible with OpenICE. If so how can I know when navigating in such websites that any medical device is compatible with OpenICE, does it have a reference number on it description ?

Thank you.

Waiting for our response.

A list of OpenICE compatible devices can be found here:

You can access that page by following the link or navigating to and selecting "Device-Adapter Setup" form the "Docs" drop down menu located at the top of the page.

To get started with a physical medical device instead of one of our simulators, I would suggest looking into purchasing a Nonin Onyx II pulse oximeter. They are wireless and will provide you with a couple data points to feed into the ICE supervisor. You can find these on ebay or go directly through a Nonin Sales Rep.

I hope this helps!

Hi, I am trying to connect a Nonin 9560 Bluetooth Pulse Ox to OpenICE. I have selected the 'Device Category' as 'Serial' and the 'Device Type' as 'Nonin Bluetooth Pulse Oximeter'. I am however, unsure what to enter in the 'IP Address' field? or if there are additional configuration steps required.

Hi all,

please is the app compatible with Windows 10? I have installed OpenICE on my machine with Windows 10 but it keeps freezing.

Thank you,

I've been working with a Philips IntelliVue MX800, and the associated RJ45 to RS232 adapter required.

I've been left a little confused after seeing the below diagram on your website. It appears to me that the white numbers on the left-most diagram of the RJ45 connector appear to be inconsistent with the two other diagram of the RJ45 connector.

This is based on the assumption that the left-most diagram is displaying and end-on view of the RJ45 connector.

Hey Thomas,

The left-most diagram is a cross section of a male connector plugged into a female connector. Use the pin connection numbering described by the drawing with the pin layout of the smaller drawings. The pinouts on the two smaller individual illustrations are the correct layout for each gender connector. The pin numbering is standardized so feel free to Google around for better pictures.
