Campbell Scientific Measurement & Control Systems

Campbell Scientific logoCampbell 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 50ºC; optional extended ranges are available

Below is information on the Campbell Scientific dataloggers that we sell and support. If you have any questions please contact us for a no obligation consultation. We can provide quotes and detailed specification information. You can also click here to view the Campbell Scientific Web site.

CR1000 Measurement & Control Datalogger

CR1000 dataloggerFollowing in the tradition of the CR10 and CR10X, our CR1000 dataloggers measure more sensors than our 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 our most widely used 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

  • 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 controls 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

CR850 dataloggerThe CR800 and CR850 dataloggers provide precision measurement capabilities in a rugged, battery-operated package. The two models differ in their keyboard display. The CR800 uses an external keyboard display, the CR1000KD, which connects to the CR800 via its CS I/O port. The CR850 includes an on-board keyboard display as part of its integrated package.

The CR800/850 is smaller then 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 Benefits

  • Ideal applications include wind profiling, weather stations, ETo/agriculture, air quality, soil moisture, water level/stage, aquaculture, vehicle testing, Time Domain Reflectometry, SCADA, and water quality
  • Simpler in design, the CR800 and CR850 are easier to program and wire.
  • 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 peripherals allowing you to expand your system
  • Supports PakBus, Modbus, SDI-12, and DNP3 protocols
  • Includes both an CS I/O port and an RS-232 port for connecting communication devices
  • 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 with LoggerNet, PC400, or ShortCut to fit your setup.

CR200X or CR206X Series Dataloggers

cr200x seriesCR200X-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 of our modems. On site data review is provided by a laptop computer, CD295 DataView II Display, Archer-PCon Field PC, or a user-supplied PDA (PConnect or PConnectCE software required).

CR200X or CR206X Benefits

  • Ideal applications include wind energy, rural water, water level/flow, aquaculture, water quality
  • Campbell Scientific’s smallest, lowest cost datalogger
  • Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) protected inputs
  • Optimal for measuring one or two sensors
    Makes SDI-12, single-ended analog, pulse, switch closure, and bridge measurements
  • Battery-backed SRAM and clock that ensure data, programs, and accurate time are maintained while datalogger is disconnected from the main power source
  • Program with LoggerNet, PC400, or ShortCut to fit your setup
  • PakBus, Modbus, and SDI-12 protocols supported
