The CR1000KD is a portable keyboard and display screen for our CR1000, CR800, and CR6 dataloggers. It allows you to check the datalogger's status, display or plot sensor readings and stored values, and enter numeric data or change port/flag state. One CR1000KD may be carried from station to station in a datalogger network.

Benefits and Features

  • Can be easily moved from data logger to data logger
  • Supports custom menus and displays to simplify routine operations


Technical Description

The CR1000KD displays 8 lines x 21 characters (64 x 128 pixels) and has a 16-character keyboard. The CR1000KD is powered by the datalogger’s power supply. An SC12 connects the CR1000KD to the CR1000WP or CR800; the two connectors on the SC12 allow attachment of additional peripherals.

The CR1000KD supports custom menus. With custom menus, you can set up choices within the datalogger program that are initiated by a simple toggle or pick from a list in the menu displayed on the CR1000KD (for example, Initiate Sensor Calibration Sequence versus Bypass Sensor Calibration Sequence.)

There is not a CR1000KD Operator's Manual. Operation of the CR1000KD is described in the CR800 and CR1000 datalogger manual.

  1. Yes. After a ConstTable is declared in a program, it can be accessed using the CR850 or CR1000KD keypad display and the standard/default data logger menu. It appears under Configure | Settings

  2. No. The CR1000KD is designed specifically for use on the CS I/O port of the CR800, CR1000, and CR6 dataloggers. 

  3. CustomMenu instructions apply to the CR1000KD, CR850, and CR3000 display. Custom menus are not displayed or passed through to the terminal interface. 

  4. In OS 24 (CR6 OS 01) and later, a user can change constants from the CR1000KD or a terminal emulator without touching the program. The program must contain a ConstTable/EndConstTable construction for this to occur. Because the program does recompile, collect the data first.

  5. Although it is recommended to use software such as Short Cut for programming, the CR800-series, CR1000, and CR3000 dataloggers can be programmed with the CD100, CR1000KD, or integrated keypads. The keypad can be used to create new programs or edit programs that already exist in the data logger memory.

    From the CD100 or CR1000KD home screen, follow these steps to get started:

    1. Press Enter
    2. Select File and press Enter
    3. Select either New or Edit
      • To modify an existing instruction, select the instruction, and press Enter
      • To add a new instruction, press Ins, and select Instruction.
