Event Description

Campbell Scientific offer a two day introductory level training course for users of the CR1000, CR300 and CR6 series of table based dataloggers and LoggerNet (CR-Basic) support software, with an emphasis on programming. The course includes "hands-on" exercises and a comprehensive training manual to reinforce the concepts covered. The first day of the course provides a good introduction to using our software to administer, program and collect data from the new generation of dataloggers. The second day will teach you the basics of customising a datalogger program to suit your sensor and data storage requirements.

Class size is limited to six attendees to provide a high level of personalised instruction and assistance.
