Overview

The CR1000X is our flagship data logger that provides measurement and control for a wide variety of applications. Its reliability and ruggedness make it an excellent choice for remote environmental applications, including weather stations, mesonet systems, wind profiling, air quality monitoring, hydrological systems, water quality monitoring, and hydrometeorological stations.

The CR1000X is a low-powered device that measures sensors, drives direct communication and telecommunications, analyzes data, controls external devices, and stores data and programs in onboard, nonvolatile storage. The electronics are RF-shielded by a unique sealed, stainless-steel canister. A battery-backed clock assures accurate timekeeping. The onboard, BASIC-like programming language, common to all contemporary Campbell Scientific data loggers, supports data processing and analysis routines.

Technical Description

The CR1000X is a low-powered device designed to measure sensors, drive direct communication and telecommunications, analyze data, control external devices, and store data and programs in on-board, non-volatile storage. The electronics are RF-shielded and glitch-protected by a unique sealed, stainless-steel canister. A battery-backed clock assures accurate timekeeping. The on-board, BASIC-like programming language—common to all Campbell Scientific data loggerssupports data processing and analysis routines.

The CR1000X wiring panel includes two switchable 12 V terminals, analog grounds dispersed among 16 analog terminals, and unpluggable terminal blocks for quick deployment.

Downloads

CR1000X OS v.4.02 (5.45 MB) 31-03-2020

This download is for the CR1000X datalogger. Execution of this download places the Operating System file(.obj) on your computer. It also updates the CRBasic Editor compiler and support files. 

Why Update? This OS contains updates to the GOESTable() and GetRecord() instructions and additional bug fixes. With this OS update it is recommended that you also update the Device Configuration Utility to the most recent version so that new datalogger features are available in the utility.  

Note/Warning: Campbell Scientific always recommends updating operating systems on site if possible. When remote updates are required, it is recommended that you implement the necessary precautions to handle unexpected OS upload complications. All datalogger settings should be retained when updated remotely. If you choose to roll back to a previous operating system, the datalogger settings will be reset to default.

CPI Calculator v.1.0 (2.49 MB) 06-07-2016

The CPI Calculator is a downloadable Microsoft Excel spreadsheet used to estimate the usage and capacity of a CPI network.  The calculator provides an overview on CPI devices including the CDM-A108, CDM-A116, CDM-VW300, CDM-VW305, and the CSAT3B.  The calculator can also estimate the measurement speed of the CDM-A108 and CDM-A116 based on the number of channels and measurement parameters.

 

The CPI Calculator is an estimation tool and will help you better understand and design CPI networks by considering the following:

  1. What is the capability of each CDM or CPI device
  2. What is the CPI network capacity
  3. How much of the CPI capacity are the CDMs or CPI devices using

  1.    

    1. Connectez l'alimentation électrique au système d’acquisition de données

    • Assurez-vous que le câble  est branché dans “Power In”
    • Pour tester la puissance dans un système d’acquisition qui n'a pas d'ecran, utilisez un multimètre pour tester. (Si l'alimentation est en cours, vous devriez lire environ 12 Volts)

    2. Télécharger le pilote

    • Si vous avez acquis le système d’acquisition de données de chez Campbell Scientific, un CD a été fourni avec le logiciel du pilote.
    • Si vous n'avez pas le CD,  Vous pouvez télécharger la dernière version du pilote a www.campbellsci.ca/l17394.
    • Si vous avez acquis le système d’acquisition de données d'un autre fabricant,  Vous devez télécharger la dernière version du pilote de leur site Web.

     3. Ouvrez le Gestionnaire de périphériques

    • Dans le menu Démarrer de Windows, accédez -> “Device Manager” -> “Ports”
    • Si le programme “Device Manager” est bloquée, vous avez besoin d’obtenir les autorisations nécessaires de l'administrateur informatique.
    • Si l’icône ci-dessous apparaît, cela signifie que le pilote n’été pas installée correctement et doit être réinstallé.

       

           
    4. Tester le cable
    • Pour s'assurer que le câble fonctionne correctement, connectez l'extrémité de ce câble dans un port USB de votre ordinateur.
    • Si “USB Serial Port” apparaît sous l’onglet “Ports” mentionné ci-dessus, le câble fonctionne correctement.
    5. Connecter avec un système d’acquisition de données
    • Dans le menu démarrer de Windows, accédez -> “Device Configurator” -> “Utility”-> Dataloggers -> Select your Device
    • Connection type -> Direct
    • Communication port -> USB serial port -> ok -> Connect.

        

        
    6. Impossible de se connecter avec un système d’acquisition de données
    • Garder le programme “Device Configurator” ouvert-> retiré le cordon électrique -> cliquer sur “Connect” -> connectez le câble d'alimentation.
    Si vous ne parvenez pas à vous connecter au système d’acquisition de données, n'hésitez pas à contacter notre équipe de support technique expérimentées par courriel à support@campbellsci.ca, ou par telephone à (780) 454-2505.
        
        
  2.    
    1. Connect Power to Datalogger
    • Make sure the cable to “Power In” is plugged in.
    • To test for power in a datalogger that does not have a display, use a multi meter to test.( If power is running through, you should be reading approx. 12 Volts).
    2. Download Driver Software
    • If you purchased the datalogger from Campbell Scientific, a CD was provided with the Driver software.
    • If you do not have the CD, please visit www.campbellsci.ca/l17394 to download the latest version of the driver.
    • If you purchased the datalogger from another manufacturer, you need to download the driver from the manufacturer’s website.
    3. Open Device Manager
    • Go to windows-> Device Manager -> Ports.
    • If device manager is blocked, you need to get approval from your IT Admin to allow access.
    • If the below icon appears, then the driver was not installed or was installed incorrectly.

        

      

    4. Test the Cable
    • To make sure cable is working properly, plug in the USB end to your computer, without plugging it into the datalogger. If the “USB Serial Port” appears under the ports tab mentioned above, then the cable is working properly.

    5. Connect to Datalogger
    • Go to Windows start up menu-> Device Configuration -> Utility -> Dataloggers -> Select your Device
    • Connection type -> Direct
    • Communication port -> USB serial port -> ok -> Connect.

       

       

    6. Unable to Connect
    • Keep “Device Configurator” opened -> remove power cable from datalogger -> click Connect -> connect power cable to datalogger.
     
    If you are still unable to connect to your datalogger, feel free to contact our experienced tech support team by e-mail at support@campbellsci.ca or by phone at (780)454-2505.

  3. Although there are significant additions to the CR1000X program instructions that are not available in the CR1000, in most cases, you can load your program written for the CR1000 to a CR1000X with minor instruction changes. The most notable of the minor instruction changes is in the analog measurement instructions. For more information, see the "Replacing Your CR1000 Data Logger with a CR1000X: What You Should Know" blog article

  4. Return the CR1000X to Campbell Scientific for repair. For assistance obtaining a Returned Material Authorization (RMA), follow the instructions on the Repair and Calibration page.

  5. When idle, the CR1000, CR6, and CR1000X consume less than 1 mA @ 12Vdc. Similar to the CR6, the CR1000X has a much faster processor that requires more power when up and running. As such, there will be higher current draws during active measurements, serial communications, or when plugged into a PC via USB or Ethernet.

    It may be helpful to think of the CR6 and CR1000X as being built on the same "platform."

  6. The CR1000 and CR1000X will be sold concurrently for no less than two years. We anticipate the CR1000 will be retired in December of 2019 and will be supported until December of 2029.
