How to Change Metadata in EddyPro Software

How to Change Metadata in EddyPro Software

Mistakes happen. During the busy hustle of an eddy covariance installation, you might accidentally enter some metadata values incorrectly in the LI-7500RS/LI-7500DS/LI-7200RS Windows Interface Software. For example, you could set the canopy height to 2.6m instead of 6.2m, or you could incorrectly hear the sensor separation numbers as they’re being shouted down from the tower. You might not notice the discrepancy for a while, either. Fortunately EddyPro® Software makes it easy to edit the metadata file and reprocess all of…

R3 and HS Sonic Anemometer Configuration

R3 and HS Sonic Anemometer Configuration

The Gill R3 and HS series of anemometers can be connected to the LI-7550 to collect data on a USB drive.  This can facilitate remote data monitoring and collection through the available Ethernet connectivity.

The anemometer will have to be preconfigured to send data out in the required format. This can be achieved using any serial communication software like Windows HyperTerminal or Tera Term (which can be downloaded for free here). You can also use the WindCom or RCom2…

Updating Positional Tags for Biomet Data

Updating Positional Tags for Biomet Data

Version 8.0.0 of the LI-7500RS/LI-7500A/LI-7200RS/LI-7200 gas analyzer embedded software implemented a new identifier for Biomet data.  The identifier is a set of three digits that indicates the horizontal position (h), vertical position (v), and replicate number (r) at that position.  This naming protocol is based on the protocol for the AmeriFlux and ICOS networks (http://ameriflux.lbl.gov/data/aboutdata/data-variables/).  This information is stored by the LI-7550 in the biomet.metadata file for use with EddyPro® Software.  In the Sutron datalogger, there is a communications tag…

How to correctly display special symbols in the units of EddyPro output files

How to correctly display special symbols in the units of EddyPro output files

Early versions (V2.0.0 to V4.2.1) of EddyPro® software use the micro sign “µ” and degree sign “°” in the units of its output files, and  only the micro sign “µ” in its later versions (V5.0.0 to V5.1.1). When the output files are directly opened in Excel, both special symbols can be incorrectly displayed depending on the default settings of Excel and the computer’s running environment.  Here are two examples:
