Current Version: 4.4.2
PC400 is Campbell Scientific's mid-level datalogger support software. This versatile software supports a variety of telecommunication options, manual data collection, and data display. PC400 includes an easy-to-use program generator (Short Cut) as well as full-featured program editors (CRBasic, Edlog).
PC400 does not support combined communication options (e.g., phone-to-RF), PakBus routing, or scheduled data collection; LoggerNet software is recommended for applications that require those capabilities.Read More

When using PC400 to connect to a data logger on an RS-232 port, the baud rate must be matched. This is done through the PC400 data logger settings.
The available COM ports listed in the COM Port drop-down menu are supplied to PC400 by the Windows Operating System (OS). If there are no COM ports shown for selection, it most likely means that there are no COM ports registered with the Windows OS. This can be confirmed using the Windows Device Manager (Control Panel | Device Manager | Ports).
Most modern laptops are not equipped with native RS-232 COM ports. In this situation, a USB-to-RS-232 adapter cable must be used to connect to the data logger. Even when the drivers for this device have been properly installed, the derived COM port will not be shown for selection until the cable is attached to the laptop.
No. However, real-time data can be displayed in tabular form in the Monitor Data tab.
LoggerNet and PC400 have a program named Split that enables selection of records and mathematical calculations on data values in a data file. The program is especially useful in isolating data records of interest from data files from array-based data loggers where several different types of records may be stored in the same file.
Note that the version of Split in PC200W is a different application. Its only function is to separate each array in a mixed-array file into separate files.
PC400 is designed to run natively only under the Windows OS. However, there are third-party applications available for the Mac OS that can create a virtual environment in which some Windows applications can run. Note that Campbell Scientific does not provide testing or support for these applications.
PC400 can be used instead of PC208W to communicate with data loggers, but the network setup must be done manually. There is not a way to automatically migrate an existing PC208W network to PC400. Some options available in PC208W, such as automatic scheduled data collection and multiple communications hops, are not available in PC400. A better migration path for similar PC208W features and functionality is an upgrade to LoggerNet.
The initial version of the PC400 software must be ordered and cannot be downloaded directly. (Refer to the Ordering information area of the PC400 product page for more information.) After the software is installed, upgrades within a major revision level can be downloaded from the Downloads page. Upgrades between major revision levels require the purchase of the PC400/U upgrade.
