Hello. I’m Mike Nelson from Campbell
Scientific, and today I’m here to talk about the setup of a Campbell Scientific
DCP. The DCP is going to consist of a CR300 data logger along with a TX321
GOES transmitter. the TX321 transmitter has a couple screw holes on
the top here where I can actually just take the CR300 and mount it right to it.
So it becomes a single package easily mounted on a on a border, or used in a
gauge house just on the shelf there. Today we’re also going to be working
with a radar stage sensor, and a newer style tipping bucket rain gauge. So we’re
going to set up a DCP to a water level and to give us rain precipitation.
And I’m gonna be working with the data logger, GOES transmitter mounted together.
But it’s pre-wired, so I don’t have to go through the wiring. But it is just a
standard SDI-12 and tipping bucket rain gauge so very simple on the wiring there.
So that’s what we’re going to be working with as we go through this interface.
HydroLink can be found at our website www.campbellsci.com, and then by coming over to the
search window and searching for HydroLink. You’ll see the link to it right
here. Once I get in there I see the general overview and benefits of HydroLink. I can also come to very specific areas of the the web page here for HydroLink. If I go to the download section I see where I have a download as an
install and also as a zip file. Both result in the same installation once
once done properly. The main reason for having two different types is to
provide the best way for you to to get past security issues that you may have
on your end. Also, you have the HydroLink installation guide.
I’d suggest downloading this here, opening it up and following those
instructions which will make sure that you get the install done correctly. Once
HydroLink is installed it’s very easy at that point to come in and create
a shortcut for it.
