PC295 software is a freeware utility provided by Campbell Scientific Australia
to write programs for the DataView II.

PC295 first reads the datalogger program, to generate the list of Public
Variables and to determine the scan rate of the datalogger. Once this

‘screen’. A group of screens forms a user program, and PC295 saves this
program to disk in a DV2 file.

By default, the first part of the filename is the same as the datalogger program
