Answer: Yes, all versions of the SuperSting can perform a single-step measurement. Follow the steps below.
Steps to perform a single-step measurement using a SuperSting:
- Insert the electrodes into the ground based on the chosen configuration.
- Connect the electrodes to the appropriate terminals on the SuperSting.
- Ensure the SuperSting is powered on and in the main menu.
- Create a command file using SuperSting Administrator (SSAdmin) or the SuperSting Manager App (SSM)
- From the SuperSting main menu, Press `1` for "Automatic Mode."

- Select the appropriate command file for the survey using the `+` or `–` keys.
- Choose the unit (feet or meters) using the `+` or `–` keys.
- Input the x, y, and z-coordinates for the first electrode of the line.
- If using a Pole-Pole or Pole-Dipole array, enter the position of the infinite electrode. For other arrays like Wenner and Schlumberger, continue the setup.
- If using dual-mode electrodes, select `2: Distributed`.
- Choose the appropriate dual-mode cables.
- Enter the electrode cable sections used.
- Press the `F1` key for measurement settings until "FACTORY" appears under menu M61.
