PC400 1.2.1
Updated: 06-03-2005

  1. Communications Server (since 1.3.5.x): Fixed bug in the server that caused it to crash (external exception) if a Numeric or Graphic Display launched from the Connect Screen tried to display any values from a table (inlocs, public, or final storage) in a table-based datalogger (Edlog or CRBasic datalogger) that had more than 227 fields.
  2. Fixed a bug in the server that prevented it from collecting "most recently stored records" from a table-based datalogger if the datalogger had not stored at least that many records since LoggerNet’s last collection.
  3. Added support for communicating with CR1000s with newer operating systems (>=CR1000.Std.04.obj) that work with CFMs.
  4. Added capability to abort the program send command for all dataloggers.
  5. Implemented a new CoraScript command ("create-backup-file") to back up the server’s network as well as the data cache and collect areas (and other files as stipulated by the user, including use of wildcard "*" and "?" characters) while the server is running. This makes backing up the full state of the LoggerNet server more practical. This command can be run from within a batch file with other CoraScript commands on a schedule using the TaskMaster. Along with this, also implemented the command to restore the network from that backup file ("lgrnet-restore-snapshot").
  6. Fixed a bug related to processing table definitions from BMP3 dataloggers (CR5000 and CR9000) that prevented data collection when a table contained boolean variable types.
  7. Added WinSock error codes to the Comms log for troubleshooting IP connections.
  8. Increased the minimum time out for an Edlog datalogger to compile its program from 90 seconds to 180 seconds (three minutes).
  9. Changed handling of FP2 formatted data to recognize INF and –INF values.
  10. Can now change the case on device names without upsetting the other settings for the device.
  11. Added code for the RF400 series of radios to make call-back functional when the radios are in "transparent" mode (i.e., dialed, not in PakBus mode). This is accomplished by setting the base radio mask to 0xFC00 (ATMK FC00 ) when the link is being hung up or when the link is being set up to receive call-back so that it’s a predictable address for the remotes to dial.
  12. PakBus Graph 1.5: Allows users to "lock" PakBus devices to a fixed location on the screen to make viewing the network easier.
  13. CardConvert 1.0: Replaced the TOBConvert utility with CardConvert to support binary data types and files from CR1000 compact flash cards.
  14. New features in CardConvert include: can increment file names to prevent mistakenly overwriting files; remembers settings and directories; better feedback about conversion progress and results, optionally will select unused filenames for output filenames; simple help; launched from toolbar rather than Start menu; allows you to open View from its main screen to view the data files; creates new files when encountering filemarks and (new) "removemarks."
  15. DevConfig 1.3: Added several devices, including the RF401 spread spectrum radio w/ PakBus capability, CC640 camera, CD295 DataView Display, and TGA100.
  16. Added new settings for other devices, including the CR1000, NL100, and SC105.
  17. Short Cut 2.4: Reverted to default.plt and table.plt sensor files similar to those in Short Cut 2.0-2.2 for measuring the program signature in order to preserve forward compatibility so that Short Cut can edit programs created in those earlier verisons. Programs created in Version 2.3.x will have to be recreated to be used in this and subsequent versions.
  18. Short Cut 2.3 and 2.3.1: 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.
  19. Added support for interfaces requiring special wiring between the datalogger 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.
  20. Added support for outputting data to the CR1000’s compact flash (CFM100).
  21. Added new CSI sensor files: 107 Temperature Probe (4-wire version) for multiplexors, 108 Temperature Probe (3-wire) for multiplexors 108 Temperature Probe (4-wire) for multiplexors, AGS Level Sensor (Metritape), CNR1 Net Radiometer, CS100 Barometric Pressure Sensor, CS205-LC Fuel Temperature Sensor for the MetData1 and ET106, CS215 Temperature & Relative Humidity Sensor, CS505-LC Fuel Moisture Sensor for the MetData1 and ET106, CS512 Dissolved Oxygen Probe, HMP45C (6-wire) Temperature & Relative Humidity Sensor on the SW12V, NRG #200P Wind Direction Sensor, NRG #40 Wind Speed Sensor, Device for Analog Input from SDM-AO4, Device for Current/Voltage Input from SDM-CVO4, WindSonic-LC 2-D Sonic Wind Sensor for the MetData1, Wind Run Calculation, Fixed bug that prevented workable DLD files for 21X dataloggers for sensors that used 50/60 Hz rejection options for analog voltage integration.
  22. SMS 4.9 1: Fixed a problem with collecting data from SM16M modules set for fill & stop. Data collection would proceed as expected, almost until the last "chunk" and then would either fail with a "too many errors message" or just get in a loop where it tried over and over and over to collect that last chunk.
  23. Miscellaneous: Updated instruction definition files and help for CRBasic dataloggers.
