Descripción técnica

EZSetup Wizard

To facilitate station setup, PC400 provides the EZSetup Wizard. This simple, station-oriented wizard walks the user through the setup process. The wizard can also be used to modify settings for an existing site.

Clock/Program, Monitor Data, Collect Data

These tools allow customers to set/edit the station’s settings, set the data logger’s clock, view real-time data, set flags/ports, and collect data on demand. Communication links supported include direct connect, phone modems, Ethernet, narrow-band UHF and VHF radios, spread-spectrum radios, or multidrop modems.

Programming

PC400 offers two full-featured programming tools—the CRBasic Editor and Edlog. The CRBasic Editor (similar in syntax to the BASIC programming language) supports our newer data loggers. Edlog supports our retired data loggers and the CR7.

For those who prefer a simpler means of programming their data loggers, PC400 includes Short Cut for Windows (SCWin). SCWin provides a wizard-like interface for generating programs for Campbell Scientific data loggers and supports all our popular sensors, as well as user-created custom sensor files (using an existing sensor file as the starting point). Short Cut can also be used for the ET107, ET106, and MetData1 Weather Stations.

View Pro

View Pro allows data to be viewed in numeric format or in one of several graphical layouts, including a line graph, xy plot, histogram, rainflow, and 2D/3D FFTs. Multiple data files can be opened at once, allowing side-by-side comparison of the data. There is no limit to the number of traces that can be displayed on a graph. The graphs can be saved in a variety of formats. The left and right y-axes of the graphs can be configured independently. 

Device Configuration Utility

DevConfig allows you to send new operating systems to data loggers and other devices with flash memory, configure various PakBus settings in data loggers, and edit settings for communication peripherals such as the NL241, NL240, RF407, and RF401A. The latest DevConfig can be downloaded from our website.

Card Convert

CardConvert is used to convert and save binary data from a PC Card, CompactFlash card, or microSD card. PC Cards are compatible with our CR5000 and CR9000X dataloggers. CompactFlash cards are compatible with our CR1000, CR3000, CR5000, and CR9000X dataloggers. MicroSD cards are compatible with our CR6 and CR1000X dataloggers.

Split

Split is used to post-process data files and create reports. It sorts and combines data based on time or conditions, performs calculations on data values, converts “Day of Year” calendar dates into more traditional date/time stamps, and allows variable column widths for printable reports.

Number of FAQs related to PC400: 6

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. It is not possible to transfer collected data directly from PC400 to a database. PC400 creates ASCII text data files containing the collected data.

    To transfer data logger data to a database, consider using LoggerNet and LNDB (LoggerNet Database Software).

  2. PC400 can be used instead of PC208W to communicate with data loggers, but the network setup must be done manually. There is not a way to automatically migrate an existing PC208W network to PC400. Some options available in PC208W, such as automatic scheduled data collection and multiple communications hops, are not available in PC400. A better migration path for similar PC208W features and functionality is an upgrade to LoggerNet.

  3. No. The libexpat.dll module used by some of our applications is sometimes identified as spyware by anti-spyware programs. It is an open-source XML parser, not spyware.

  4. If the error message “The security code was not recognized by the station” is displayed in LoggerNet, or the error message “Unable to send the program. Invalid security code” is displayed in PC400, it may be necessary to update the data logger’s support software.

    Using a CR1000 running Operating System Version Std.04 or later, the problem may be that LoggerNet or PC400 is interpreting the response from the data logger incorrectly. Confirm that the new data logger program is in the CR1000; typically, the table definitions can be updated and the problem is resolved. Newer versions of LoggerNet and PC400 software resolve this problem. Please visit our Downloads page to obtain the latest patch: www.campbellsci.com/downloads

  5. A free program generator for all Campbell Scientific data loggers is Short Cut for Windows (SCWin). Short Cut can be used to create programs in many situations where Campbell Scientific equipment is used. The Campbell Scientific YouTube channel has a two-part series on using Short Cut.

    In situations where program requirements are too complex or specialized for Short Cut, programs can be written in any text editor that can edit and save plain ASCII text. However, creating an error-free program would be very difficult. The CRBasic Editor that comes with PC400 and LoggerNet provides a programming environment with procedure templates, integrated help, programming examples, the ability to test compile the program before sending it, and many other features that can be very helpful when developing a program.
