PC121 ETPRO FOR NW8OO2
ETPro for the NW8O02 weather stations is designed to calculate an Evapotranspiration (ET) value as
well as show current weather station conditions. Io use the ETPro software, PC208 software must be
installed on the computer (PC208 manual lnstallation Section 1.2.1). ETPro is contained on the disk
labeled ETPro disk 1 of 1. The files on this disk must be copied to the directory where PC208 has been
installed. The menu file allows the user to program the weather statbn based upon the station's
longitude, latitude, elevation and time zone coordinates. The user may select the Upe of
communication (Phone or short haul) being used. ETPro also allows monitoring realtime measurements,
collecting data, and generating reports.
NOTE: Time zone coordinates are vital in accurate ET calculation. A time zone map (Figure 1-1) is
provided for use in determining the time zone your weather station is located in.

lnsert ETPro disk into drive A or B of the
computer. Copy allfiles from this disk to the
same directory where PC208 resides.

1.2 INITIAL STATION SET.UP
The following procedures outline the steps
needed to program, download, view, and
retrieve station data:
1.
2.
After the station and communication
interface (RAD or Phone) have been
installed, turn on the power to the station.
Locate time zone (Figure 1-'l), longitude,
latitude, and elevation values of the station.
You will also need to check the time of your
computer by typing "time" on the DOS
command line. Be sure that this time is
standard time, not daylight savings time. lf
the computer shows daylight savings time,
change the time by typing the correct time
on the line provided. Keep in mind that
when the computer is turned otf, the
computer will default back to daylight
savings time. lf you are in doubt you are on
standard or daylight time, call NIST (303)
499-7111 which is a recording of universal
time. Once each minute you will hear the
current universal time local to Greenwich,
England. With this time you can refer to the
time zone map and count back the number
of hours you are from Greenwich. For
example: Denver, Colorado is -7 hours
from Greenwich. Therefore, if the time
heard was 1500 hours, the proper time at
the station is 1500 - 7 or 8:00.
3.
4.
Move to the "Edit" option and select it.
5.
The highlight bar should be on "Create
Station Program" press Enter or click with
the mouse.
6.
In the ET program use the arrow keys to
move the highlight window. lf you need
help press F1.
7.
After the main menu is returned, move the
highlight bar to "Communication Param."
and press Enter.
8.
The COM port of the computer, Baud Rate
and Intedace device may be different from
station to station. lf all of these parameters
are correct, press Esc. lf any are different
for the station installed, follow instructions
listed on the screen to make changes. lf
changes are made, be sure to press
^P to
save the changes. You will not need to
return to this option again once this is done.
The screen is displayed below.
9.
Select the "Maintenance" option and move
to "Download Datalogger Program". Keep
In the PC208 directory type "ET".
<Esc>=Done

in mind when this option is selected, you will
need to know if your computer is on
standard time or daylight savings time. lt is
imperative that your computer is set up with
standard time. When you select the default
"OK to set clock" it willtake a few minutes
for the clock to be set and the program to
be downloaded to the station.

10. Select "Monitor" in the "Data" menu option
to monitor current conditions to see if all
sensors are making proper measurements.
Keep in mind the locations 1 ,3-7, 10, and
11 are updated every 60 seconds. Location
8 is updated once a second. Locations 9,
24, and 25 are updated once an hour.
Locations 2, 12-18, 23, 26-33 are updated
every 24 hours at 2:00 pm. Table 1-1 lists
the locations definitions which appear on
screen in the monitor mode.

11. When sufficient data has been recorded.
the data can then be collected with the
"Collect Data" option. Data is viewed by
selecting "Reports" and one of the options
desired, "Hourly Summary" or "Daily
Summary".
These 11 steps define the basic initial set
up. For a description of all the menu
options refer to the reference portion of this
