Detailed Description

The CRBasic Editor is a feature-rich program editor that supports all instructions and functions contained in the data logger operating system. It is intended for use by an experienced data logger programmer who needs more flexibility than what is found in the Short Cut Program Generator (SCWin). Data logger programs generated by SCWin can be opened and edited in the CRBasic Editor. (Program changes, however, do not integrate back into SCWin.) Creating a program in SCWin and then completing more complex programming tasks in the CRBasic Editor is an efficient way to add the needed code to a CRBasic program to measure specific sensors, allowing you to dedicate more time in CRBasic to tasks not supported by SCWin.

The stand-alone installation of the CRBasic Editor provides a cost-effective way to provide a licensed copy of the CRBasic Editor to individual users who need a programming tool. Using the stand-alone CRBasic Editor along with PC200W or the Device Configuration Utility, technicians can make programming changes in the field with a lower investment cost.

The CRBasic programming language is similar in syntax, program flow, and logic to the BASIC programming language. Many mathematical functions, operators, and logic statements found in BASIC languages are also found in CRBasic.
