PC200W is a free starter software package designed for first-time users or users with simple data communication needs; it provides basic tools (clock set, program download, monitor data, retrieve data, etc.). PC200W supports direct connections between a PC and datalogger (no telecommunications or scheduled data-collection support).
After a program is created with our Short Cut Program Generator (included), PC200W is typically used to download the program to the datalogger.
PC200W is included on our ResourceDVD.
PC200W was designed expressly for the beginning user so a manual is not necessary. Context-sensitive help is available throughout the program by pressing F1.
PC200W allows you to:
PC200W collects and stores data in comma separated files on your PC. It includes a View program that displays data files in tabular or graphical form. For mixed-array dataloggers, a simple Split program is included that separates arrays in a data file into separate files.
CardConvert is used to convert and save binary data from a PC Card, CompactFlash® card, or microSD card. Our CR5000 and CR9000X dataloggers store data on a PC Card via their on-board PCMCIA card slot, and store data on a CompactFlash card via the CF1 CompactFlash Adapter. Our CR1000 and CR3000 dataloggers store data on a CompactFlash card via the CFM100 CompactFlash Module or NL115 Ethernet Interface and CompactFlash Module. Our CR6 datalogger stores data on a microSD card.
PC200W includes Short Cut2 for creating simple datalogger programs. Programs created with the CRBasic Editor3 or Edlog4 can be sent to the datalogger using PC200W.
1PC200W only supports direct communications. Telemetry requires either LoggerNet or PC400 Datalogger Support Software. LoggerNet also supports scheduled data collection For more information, contact a Campbell Scientific applications engineer.
Recommended computer operating systems—Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8
Only direct connection between the PC and datalogger is supported (telecommunications are not supported and neither is scheduled data collection).
Our starter software that supports direct connection between a datalogger and a computer. Short Cut, Device Configuration Utility and CardConvert are included.
Note: More recent versions of Short Cut and Device Configuration Utility have been released and are available as individual downloads.View Update History
Short Cut creates simple programs for our CR200-series, CR510, CR500, CR10(X), 21X, CR23X, CR6, CR800, CR1000, CR3000, CR5000 and CR9000X dataloggers. Both mixed array and table data operating systems are supported. Short Cut also supports our ET106, ET107 and MetData1 weather stations. The newest version includes the latest sensor files.View Update History

Units cannot be displayed in the Monitor Data tab of PC200W. When data is collected using PC200W, the units, if known, are contained in the header of the data file. They can be displayed in View by selecting the View | Show Full Header menu item.
The latest version of PC200W can be downloaded free-of-charge from the Downloads area of the PC200W product page.
Follow these steps:
A control port must first be configured for output in the datalogger program before it can be toggled on or off. Consequently, if a selected port doesn’t appear to change, the program may not have the port configured for output. (Refer to the operator’s manual for the datalogger for more information.)
The retired CR500 and CR510 have two control ports; however, only one of the ports, control port 1, can be configured for output. Therefore, control port 2 cannot be toggled on or off. It is included on the display so that its status can be monitored.
Yes. To clear data tables, follow these steps:
The Device Configuration Utility is included with PC200W. It is also available free-of-charge as a stand-alone product on the Downloads page of our website.
LoggerNet and PC400 have a program named Split that enables selection of records and mathematical calculations on data values in a data file. The program is especially useful in isolating data records of interest from data files from array-based dataloggers where several different types of records may be stored in the same file.
Note that the version of Split in PC200W is a different application. Its only function is to separate each array in a mixed-array file into separate files.
