Descripción técnica

Originally intended to support meteorological and hydrological applications, the initial releases of Short Cut (SCWin) supported over 120 sensors. Now, with additional program generation capabilities, Short Cut supports programming for our multiplexers, AVW200-series Vibrating-Wire Interfaces, ET107 stations, ET106 stations, MetData1 stations, and most sensors that can be measured by our data loggers.

Short Cut allows the user to select sensors and choose output data. Short Cut then creates a wiring diagram and a program file for transfer to the data logger. It also includes support for algebraic entry of expressions.

      • WindSonic4 (SDI12) Two-Dimensional Ultrasonic Wind Sensor
      1. We have merged the sensors list for our European office into SCWin, eliminating the need for two versions. If terminal input modules (TIMs) are being used, the wiring diagram in SCWin now supports them. Data storage to PCMCIA or CompactFlash cards has been added for the CR1000 and CR5000 dataloggers.
      2. Added support for alternative groups of sensor files, specifically to support sensor files developed for sensors specific to European users. The SCWin.EXE was modified to read new settings in the sensor files and display a menu item under the Settings menu to offer options for viewing Campbell Scientific Inc. or Campbell Scientific Ltd. sensor groups. 
      3. Added support for interfaces requiring special wiring between the data logger and sensors: LLAC4 (4-channel device for reading low-level ac signals on digital control ports), SW12V (standalone switched 12V relay cable for HMP45C sensors), Terminal Input Modules for the AGS Level Sensor and CNR1 Net Radiometer, A547 Interface for the CS547A Conductivity and Temperature Probe, QD1 Interface for quadrature shaft encoders, SDM-AO4 4-Channel Analog Output Module, and SDM-CVO4 4-Channel Current/Voltage Output Module.

    5. Short Cut for Windows 2.9 includes the following enhancements from 2.8:

      • A new Datalogger step has been added to the Progress panel. In this step, select the data logger model and set the scan interval.  When generating a program for a CR9000X, the CR9000X Configuration box also appears on this screen.   
      • When adding a sensor, if more than one of the selected sensors can be added, the choice of how many sensors to add is included as part of the sensor’s form rather than as a separate dialog box.
      • When adding more than one sensor, a dialog box is available that allows the input of unique values for certain calibration and/or conversion factors (e.g., multiplier, offset, gage factor) for each sensor being measured.
      • Each sensor form now includes a wiring tab that shows the wiring for the sensor. This tab allows the manual change of the wiring location, if desired.
      • For some sensors that require an excitation voltage, the sensor form now includes parameters that allow the calculation of the Sensors per Excitation Channel. (Exciting more than one sensor with an excitation channel is helpful when the sensors to be measured outnumber the available excitation channels.)
      • An SC115 CS I/O-to-USB Flash Memory Drive check box has been added to the Outputs screen. When this box is selected, new data will be copied to an SC115 when it is plugged into the CS I/O port of the data logger.
      • Selected Sensors are now shown in a tree format, and branches of the tree can be collapsed or expanded as desired. This can be especially useful when the Selected Sensor tree contains multiplexers.
      • New Sensor files:
        • 27106T Wind Speed Sensor
        • CS525 ISFET pH Probe
        • CS650/655 Water Content Reflectometer
        • CS506 Fuel Moisture Sensor
        • NR-LITE2 Net Radiometer
        • CNR4 Net Radiometer
        • Quarter Bridge Strain Gage
        • Half Bridge Strain Gage
        • Full Bridge Strain Gage
        • Geokon 4000/4050 Vibrating Wire Strain Gage
        • Geokon 4100-Series Vibrating Wire Strain Gage
        • Geokon 4420 Vibrating Wire Crackmeter
        • Geokon 4500-Series Vibrating Wire Piezometer
    6. One of the biggest changes in Short Cut for Windows 2.6 is support for the CR900X Measurement and Control System. A selection of generic measurements and thermocouple sensors for the CR9000X are available for the first time in this release. Other changes include:

      • New sensor files for the CMP3 Pyranometer, the IRR-P Precision Infrared Temperature Sensor, the JC Ultrasonic Depth Sensor, the CNR2 Net Radiometer, the CS106 Barometric Pressure Sensor, the OBS-3+ Turbidity Sensor, and a saturation vapor pressure calculation
      • Advanced tab on the Finish screen for CRBasic data logger, which allows viewing the CRBasic code and launching the CRBasic Editor
      • Option to send the program to the data logger from the Results tab on the Finish screen
      • Ability to create custom sensors using existing sensor files as templates
      • Ability to manually set advanced outputs to high or low resolution
    7. We do not offer an individual manual for SCWin (Short Cut for Windows). Short Cut information is provided in the LoggerNet, RTDAQ, and PC400 manuals. Information can also be obtained from the Help screens within SCWin.

    8. 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.
