Dataloggers

CSI_logo_smlCampbell Scientific dataloggers are at the center of our rugged, reliable data acquisition systems. These dataloggers share similar measurement and programming capabilities; selection of the appropriate datalogger depends mainly on the type, number, precision, and speed of measurements required.

Datalogger Features:

  • Measure nearly any sensor
  • Provide non-volatile data storage and on-board battery-backed clock
  • On-board data processing
  • Initiate measurement and control functions based on time or event
  • Controlling external devices such as pumps, motors, alarms, freezers, valves, etc.
  • PC support software or keyboard/display to program
  • Operate independently of AC power, computers, and human interaction
  • Consume minimal power from a 12 Vdc source (solar recharge available)
  • Interface with on-site and telecommunication devices such as telephone modems (including cellular and voice-synthesized), short haul modems, radio transceivers, satellite transmitters, and ethernet interfaces
  • Operating temperature range of -25° to 50°C; optional extended ranges are available

CR6 Measurement & Control Datalogger – WiFi version available

Campbell Scientific combined the best features of all their dataloggers and added faster communication, low power requirements, built in USB, compact size, and improved analog input accuracy and resolution. The CR6 also introduces a new universal (U) terminal, an ingenious way to allow virtually any sensor—analog or digital—to be connected to any U terminal. This is also Campbell Scientific’s first multipurpose datalogger capable of doing static vibrating-wire measurements.

The CR6-WiFi is the ideal solution for short-range wireless IP communications.

Using a WiFi enabled device and the free LoggerLink Mobile App, you can wirelessly connect to the CR6-WiFi. The CR6-WiFi comes factory-configured as a WiFi access point. Alternatively, the CR6-WiFi can be configured to join an existing WiFi network with standard or enterprise (EAP) security.

CR1000 Measurement & Control Datalogger

Following in the tradition of the CR10 and CR10X, the CR1000 dataloggers measure more sensors than the CR200X- and CR800-series dataloggers. The CR1000 is a compact modular datalogger with a measurement and control module, external power supply, and optional keyboard display. Their power consumption and packaging are optimized for unattended network applications.

The CR1000 is the most widely used Campbell Scientific datalogger. It can be used in a broad range of measurement and control functions. Rugged enough for extreme conditions and reliable enough for remote environments, it is also robust enough for complex configurations.

CR1000 Benefits and Features

  • Ideal applications include fire weather, Mesonet systems, wind profiling, weather stations, air quality, ETo/agriculture, soil moisture, water level/stage, aquaculture, avalanche forecasting, Time Domain Reflectometry, vehicle testing, SCADA, and water quality
  • Serial communications with serial sensors and devices supported via I/O port pairs
  • Collects and stores data and control peripherals as the brain of your system
  • Flexible power and communication options make it ideal for remote locations
  • 4-MB memory can be expanded with add-on memory systems
  • Supports PakBus, Modbus, SDI-12, and DNP3 protocols
  • Compatible with channel expansion peripherals allowing you to expand your system
  • Program with LoggerNet, PC400, or ShortCut to fit your setup
  • Communicates via various options: TCP/IP, email, FTP, web server
  • Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) protected inputs
  • Battery-backed SRAM and clock that ensure data, programs, and accurate time are maintained while datalogger is disconnected from the main power source
  • Program and control on site with addition of CR1000KD keyboard and display unit
  • Contains custom ASIC chip that expands pulse count, control port, and serial communications capabilities

CR800 & CR850 Measurement & Control Dataloggers

The CR800 and CR850 dataloggers provide precision measurement capabilities in a rugged, battery-operated package. The two models differ in that the CR850 has a built-in keyboard display. (The CR800 can use an external keyboard display, the CR1000KD, which connects to the CR800 via its CS I/O port.)

The CR800/850 is smaller than the CR1000, and is a research-grade datalogger designed for stand-alone operation in harsh, remote environments. It is intended for smaller configurations in which fewer sensors will be measured. Each CR800 series logger reads input from sensors, then transmits the data via a communication peripheral; most sensors and telecommunication devices are compatible, multiple CR800s can be configured as a network or units can be deployed individually.

CR800/CR850 Benefits and Features

  • Ideal applications include wind profiling, weather stations, air quality, ETo/agriculture, air quality, soil moisture, water level/stage, aquaculture, vehicle testing, Time Domain Reflectometry, SCADA, and water quality
  • Serial communications with serial sensors and devices supported via I/O port pairs
  • Contains custom ASIC chip that expands pulse count, control port, and serial communications capabilities
  • Compatible with channel expansion and peripherals allowing you to expand your system
  • Supports PakBus, Modbus, SDI-12, and DNP3 protocols
  • Includes both a CS I/O port and an RS-232 port for connection communication devices
  • Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) protected inputs

CR200X or CR206X Series Dataloggers

CR200X-series dataloggers have an input channel configuration and small size that make them optimal for measuring one or two simple sensors. Some of the models have onboard spread-spectrum radios, allowing them to be used as wireless sensors (CR206X, CR216X).

The CR200X-series dataloggers are powered with an external power supply. They are not compatible with multiplexers, SDM devices, or thermocouples. The serial port on the CR200X series is RS-232, making it compatible with some modems. Data can be viewed on site with a laptop computer, iOS or Android device, or CD295 DataView II Display.

CR200X/CR206X Benefits and Features

  • Ideal applications include wind, energy, rural water, water level/flow, aquaculture, and water quality
  • Campbell Scientific’s smallest, lowest cost datalogger
  • Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) protected inputs
  • Optimal for measuring one or two sensors
