Various improvements have been incorporated into the communications engine, especially to support the new CR1000 datalogger.
The new EZSetup client has been added.
Fixed a minor bug in the communications engine that prevented it from collecting tables from CR5000 or CR9032 dataloggers that contained Boolean variables.
Used a different sequence for closing sockets and threads during shutdown by clients, including EZSetup and LogTool to make it more robust when used with certain third party antivirus software.
Made it possible to use regional settings with alternative separator characters (e.g., commas for decimal separators and periods for thousands separators), particularly noticeable in the Numeric Monitor.
A Device Configuration Utility (DevConfig) is installed with a shortcut placed in the program folder under "Utilities" folder. The device configuration utility (DevConfig) allows users to set up dataloggers and intelligent peripherals before those devices are deployed in a customer's application and before these devices are set up in applications like PC200W. This utility is particularly suited to setting up PakBus devices.
PakBus Graph is included in the installation directory. There is no access to this utility from the PC200W interface so as to keep the interface as simple as possible, however, if there are problems with PakBus communications users may be instructed by an Applications Engineer on how to use this utility.
LogTool is included in the installation directory. There is no access to this utility from the PC200W interface so as to keep the interface as simple as possible, however, if there are problems with PakBus communications users may be instructed by an Applications Engineer on how to use this utility.
Short Cut Advanced Output can be enabled (disabled by default) on the Output screen. If more than one condition is enabled they are ANDed together. Users can select multiple (contiguous) measurements for output on the Output screen. Only outputs allowed for all selected measurements will be enabled.
Drag-and-drop now works to reorder outputs on Output screen.
Individual members of rep blocks can be renamed on the Sensors screen.
Users can override allowed (recommended) outputs on Output screen with a right-click.
A 50 or 60 Hz noise rejection option is available from the Settings pull-down menu.
Alternative compilers can be selected for the CR200 Series dataloggers from the Settings pull- down menu.
