DEVCONFIG Device Configuration Utility


Current Version: 2.17

The Device Configuration Utility (DevConfig) allows you to send new operating systems to dataloggers and other devices with flash memory, configure various PakBus® settings in dataloggers, and edit settings for communication peripherals such as the NL240 and RF401A. It is used to set up dataloggers and peripherals before those devices are deployed in the field and before the devices are added to networks in Campbell Scientific datalogger support software such as LoggerNet or PC400.  

The latest DevConfig can be downloaded free of charge from the Downloads section.

Detailed Description

To keep the process as simple as possible, DevConfig supports only serial and IP connections between the PC and devices.

DevConfig cannot only send operating systems to supported device types, but can also set datalogger clocks, send program files to dataloggers, and monitor the data on dataloggers.

DevConfig provides a reporting facility where a summary of the current configuration of a device can be shown on the screen and printed. This configuration can also be saved to a file and used to restore the settings in the same or a replacement device.

Some devices may not support the configuration protocol in DevConfig, but do allow configurations to be edited through the terminal emulation screen.

Help for DevConfig is shown as prompts and explanations on its main screen. Help for the appropriate settings for a particular device can also be found in the user’s manual for that device.

Updates to DevConfig are available here. These may be installed over the top of older versions.
