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 data logger (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 data logger.Read More
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:
Note: PC200W only supports direct communications. Telemetry requires either LoggerNet or PC400 Datalogger Support Software. LoggerNet also supports scheduled data collection. For more information, contact Campbell Scientific.
PC200W collects and stores data in comma-separated files on your PC. It includes View Pro, which displays data files in tabular or graphical form. For mixed-array data loggers, 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 NL116 Ethernet Interface and CompactFlash Module. Our CR6 and CR1000X dataloggers store data on a microSD card.
PC200W includes Short Cut for creating simple data logger programs. Programs created with the CRBasic Editor or Edlog can be sent to the data logger using PC200W.

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.
A control port must first be configured for output in the data logger 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 data logger 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.
After a multiplexer has been added in Short Cut (SCWin), all the sensors that can be added to the multiplexer are listed in the Available Sensors and Devices tree. Short Cut only allows two different sensors to be added to a multiplexer if they are both measured using the same type of measurement (that is, single-ended, differential, half bridge, 3-wire half bridge, etc.). After a sensor is added to the multiplexer, the Available Sensors and Devices tree lists only those sensors that require the same type of measurement as the first sensor added.
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.
Data records are collected (downloaded from the data logger to the PC) from the PC200W Collect Data tab. The records can be viewed and printed by selecting View from the PC200W toolbar or the Tools menu.
