Overview

The CR1000X is our flagship datalogger 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 on-board, non-volatile storage. The electronics are RF-shielded by a unique sealed, stainless-steel canister. A battery-backed clock assures accurate timekeeping. The on-board, BASIC-like programming language, common to all contemporary Campbell Scientific dataloggers, 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 dataloggerssupports data processing and analysis routines.

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

Compatibility

Sensors

With several terminal types, the CR1000X is compatible with nearly every available sensor, including analogue (both voltage and current), thermocouples, serial, SDI-12, pulse, and frequency sensors. 

Measurement & Control Peripherals

The CR1000X is compatible with all our CDMs, multiplexers, vibrating-wire interfaces, terminal input modules, and relays. 

Communications

The CR1000X communicates with a PC via direct USB port, 10/100baseT Ethernet port, multidrop modems, short-haul modems, phone modems (land line, digital cellular, and voice-synthesized), RF telemetry, and satellite transmitters (HDR GOES, Argos, Meteosat, Iridium, and Inmarsat).

Data can be viewed on the CR1000KD Keyboard Display, the CD100 Mountable Display with Keyboard, an iOS or Android device (requires our free LoggerLink app), CD295 DataView II Display, or other third-party devices. 

Enclosures

The CR1000X and its power supply can be housed in any of our standard enclosures. 

Power

Any external 12 Vdc source can power the CR1000X datalogger. Campbell Scientific power supplies commonly used with the CR1000X are the BPALK, PS150, and PS200.

  1. 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.

  2. 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."

  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 Datalogger with a CR1000X: What You Should Know" blog article

  4. 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.
