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.Read More
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 loggers—supports 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.

With several terminal types, the CR1000X is compatible with nearly every available sensor, including analog (both voltage and current), thermocouples, serial, SDI-12, pulse, and frequency sensors.
The CR1000X is compatible with all our CDMs, multiplexers, vibrating-wire interfaces, terminal input modules, and relays.
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.
The CR1000X and its power supply can be housed in any of our standard enclosures.
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.
Campbell Scientific proprietary software is required to program, configure, and communicate with the CR1000X datalogger. Various software options are available to meet a breadth of application needs. At a minimum, Short Cut and PC200W are needed. Consult with a Campbell Scientific Support and Implementation Engineer to determine the best software option.
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 has multiple new features and other 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.
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:

The potential transformer and the current transformer provide differential outputs that have galvanic isolation from the voltage and current in the circuit they are measuring. However, there is no need to run the outputs of these transformers into differential inputs of the data logger and unnecessarily consume additional data logger channels. We conducted extensive testing for noise immunity, for inaccuracies from ground loops, and more before concluding that single-ended measurements in the ACPower() instruction have the same performance as differential measurements would provide. Please note that as a result of the galvanic isolation of the potential transformer and current transformer, the data logger ground is NOT connected to the ground of the circuit they are measuring.
Said differently, you can connect differential outputs of a sensor to single-ended inputs of the data logger. However, doing so creates the possibility of poor common-mode noise rejection in the data logger and the possibility of introducing inaccuracies from ground loops between the sensor and the data logger. Note that in this application, the transformer isolation of the potential transformer and the current transformer eliminates these concerns.
Simply connect one of the potential transformer secondary wires and one of the current transformer secondary wires to the data logger ground. Which wire in either case makes a difference, as the phase information allows the measurement of power flowing in either direction. If you measure negative real power when it should be positive, then reverse the secondary wires of the potential transformer where they connect to the data logger. Alternatively, you can reverse the secondary wires on the current transformer, but don't reverse both pairs of wires.
The default CPI bus speed setting is 250 kB/s. The speed is adjustable in your CRBasic data logger program. Use the CPISpeed() instruction in your CRBasic program to adjust the CPI bus bandwidth to meet the following maximum combined (total) Ethernet cable lengths:
Return the CR1000X to Campbell Scientific for repair. For assistance obtaining a Return Material Authorization (RMA), follow the instructions on the Repair and Calibration page.
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."
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.
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.
