About Datalogger Support Software
Our datalogger support software packages support datalogger programming, communications between datalogger and PC, and to varied extents, real-time and historical data monitoring. They allow a customer to support a single station or an entire datalogger network.
PC200W and ShortCut are designed to get you "up and running" quickly. These are easy-to-use software products intended for first time users or applications that don't require sophisticated communications or datalogger program editing.
PC400 software supports datalogger programming and telecommunications of a single device. If networks of dataloggers are required, we recommend using our LoggerNet client-server software. LoggerNet supports unattended telecommunications with each datalogger in the network as well as the ability for many users to simultaneously access data from the datalogger network.
RTDAQ is designed for high-speed data retrieval, and complements our CR5000, and CR9000X dataloggers. If telemetry is required for CR5000, CR9000, or CR9000X applications, LoggerNet is required.
A special Campbell Scientific product named LoggerNet Linux (LNLinux) allows the LoggerNet server to be run in a Linux environment. The server collects and stores the data, while setup and management of the network are handled from Windows workstations running LoggerNet Remote.
Transformer will move all of your comments from your CR10X file so we recommend using the .csi file. If that is not available to you, you can also use the .dld file to create a CR1000 file.
No. The libexpat.dll module used by some of our applications is sometimes identified as spyware by anti-spyware programs. It is an open-source XML parser, not spyware.
PakCom no longer ships with every CR200 datalogger. For programming, download the latest version of Short Cut from our downloads page. If you need more programming power, consider purchasing either PC400 or LoggerNet.
Transformer is available within LoggerNet 3.2 and higher.
- From the Windows Start Menu, navigate to LoggerNet3.0 | Utilities | Transformer.
- In LoggerNet 4.x, from the main LoggerNet window, navigate to Program | Transformer.
An administrative account is necessary to install LoggerNet on Windows XP. The installation process creates directories in C:Program Files and creates keys in the Registry. A normal "user" account can run LoggerNet on Windows XP if the following rights are allowed for that user account:
1. Allow full access to files in the directory where LoggerNet is installed. By default, this directory is:
2. Allow full access to files in the working directory for LoggerNet. By default, this directory is:
3. Allow full access to several files that will be created and updated in the Windows directory:
4. Allow full access to the registry key:
Beginning with LoggerNet 3.0 only normal "user" rights are required to run LoggerNet, though an administrative account is still required to install it.
