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.

  1. 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.

  2. The latest version of PC200W can be downloaded free-of-charge from the Downloads area of the PC200W product page. 

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    • PC208W is a retired data logger support software package. It was replaced by LoggerNet in 2004.
    • PC200W is the current free starter software package. 
  5. 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.

  6. 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.
