Technische Beschreibung

Originally intended to support meteorological and hydrological applications, the initial releases of Short Cut (SCWin) supported over 120 sensors. Now, with additional program generation capabilities, Short Cut supports programming for our multiplexers, AVW200-series Vibrating Wire Interfaces, ET107 stations, ET106 stations, MetData1 stations, and most sensors that can be measured by our data loggers.

Short Cut allows the user to select sensors and choose output data. Short Cut then creates a wiring diagram and a program file for transfer to the data logger. It also includes support for algebraic entry of expressions.

  1. The SCWin revision history information can be found through the “Software and OS Revision Histories” web page for Short Cut.

  2. No. Short Cut version 3.0 cannot be used to program the datalogger to send data via FTP.

  3. The Half Bridge instruction should be selected (not the 3 Wire or 4 Wire options) in Short Cut. The following parameters are data logger specific, but the following can be used on the CR1000 datalogger with the sensor wired to SE1, and Vx1:

    How many HalfBr Sensors?          1
    Total Bridge Resistance 1000 ohm
    Excitation Voltage 2500 mV
    Sensors per excitation channel 1
    Range of sensor voltage 2500 mV
    Reverse Excitation Yes
    Measurement Integration

    50 or 60Hz

    Settling Time 20000 µs
    Multiplier Determined during installation (see manual)
    Offset Determined during installation (see manual)
  4. Short Cut does not allow mV readings. To record the raw mV data before it is converted to NTU, open the Short Cut file in the CRBasic Editor, and alter the program manually.

  5. No. Campbell Scientific recommends tracking the battery voltage, program signature, and datalogger temperature over time for troubleshooting purposes.

  6. Yes. In the Water | Level & Flow folder, there is the option to select CS475/CS476/CS477 Radar Water Level Sensor. Click to move the selection to the Selected device window, and enter the SDI-12 address.

  7. It is possible that an older version of Short Cut is being used. Download the latest version of Short Cut.

    For programming assistance, consult the NR01-L instruction manual. For additional assistance, contact Campbell Scientific.

  8. Short Cut for Windows (SCWin) ships in all of Campbell Scientific’s support software packages. It is also available as a free download in the Downloads section of the SCWin product page.

    SCWin can be used to create programs by going through a simple five-step process. The generated data logger program can be used “as is,” or it can be opened up in the CRBasic Editor (the programming editor that is included with RTDAQ, LoggerNet, and PC400). SCWin provides a good example of programming, as well as a head start on a new program.

    Note that any changes made to the CRBasic program cannot be imported back into SCWin.

  9. No. A CRBasic or Edlog datalogger editor (included in PC400 and LoggerNet software) is needed to write program code for the TDR100. Short Cut for Windows (SCWin) is not designed to handle the many variables of the TDR100.

  10. We do not offer an individual manual for SCWin (Short Cut for Windows). Short Cut information is provided in the LoggerNet, RTDAQ, and PC400 manuals. Information can also be obtained from the Help screens within SCWin.
