With several channel types, the CR1000 is compatible with nearly every available sensor, including thermocouples, SDI-12 sensors, and 4 to 20 mA sensors. A custom ASIC chip expands its pulse count, control port, and serial communications capabilities. The CR1000's I/O ports can be paired as transmit and receive, allowing serial communications with serial sensors and devices.
Measurement & Control Peripherals
The CR1000 is compatible with all of our contemporary SDMs, multiplexers, vibrating wire interfaces, terminal input modules, and relays.
The CR1000 communicates with a PC via direct connect, Ethernet interfaces (NL100, NL115, NL120), multidrop modems, short-haul modems, phone modems (land line, digital cellular, and voice-synthesized), RF telemetry, and satellite transmitters (Argos, High Data Rate GOES, and Meteosat).
Data can be viewed on the CR1000KD Keyboard Display, CD295 DataView II Display, Archer-PCon Field PC, or a user-supplied PDA (PConnect or PConnectCE software required).
Compatible external data storage devices are the CFM100, NL115, and SC115.
The CR1000 and its power supply can be housed in an ENC12/14, ENC14/16, or ENC16/18 enclosure. With the appropriate stack bracket, a CR1000 can be attached in a “horizontal” orientation in an ENC10/12 enclosure (i.e., the long axis of the datalogger spanning the short axis of the enclosure).
Any 12-Vdc source can power the CR1000 datalogger. Power supplies commonly used with the CR1000 are the BPALK, PS100, and PS200. The BPALK provides eight non-rechargeable D-cell alkaline batteries with a 7.5-Ahr rating at 20°C.
Both the PS100 and PS200 consist of a sealed rechargeable 7- Ahr battery and a charging regulator. Their battery should be connected to a charging source (either a wall charger or solar panel). These two power supplies differ in their charging regulator. The PS100 has a standard regulator and the PS200 has a micro-controller-based smart regulator. The PS200's regulator provides two-step constant voltage charging and temperature compensation that optimize battery charging and increases the battery’s life.
Also available are the BP12 and BP24 battery packs, which provide nominal ratings of 12 and 24 Ahrs, respectively. These batteries should be connected to a regulated charging source (e.g., a CH100 or CH200 connected to a unregulated solar panel or wall charger).
CRBasic, the CR1000's full programming language, supports simple or complex programming and many onboard data reduction processes. Compatible software includes:
- Short Cut
- PC400 (version 1.2 or higher)
- LoggerNet (version 3.0 or higher)
- RTDAQ (version 1.0 or higher)
- PConnect (version 3.1 or higher)
- PConnectCE (version 2.0 or higher)
- VisualWeather (version 2.0 or higher)
