Benefits and Features

  • Manufactured from 1987-1996
  • Array-based data format
  • Repairs still available


Detailed Description

The CR10 had 12 single-ended (six differential) analog input channels, three switched excitation outputs, eight input/output control ports, two pulse counting channels, and a serial I/O port. It provided sensor measurement, timekeeping, data reduction, data/program storage and control functions. Up to 29,908 data points were stored in it's internal memory.

CR10s manufactured after 1 December 1993 (SN>19273) contained an internal jumper that supported use of 2 or 4 kbytes program memory (appropriate PROM also required).


Note: Additional specifications are listed in the CR10 Specifications Sheet.

  • 12 single-ended (six differential) analog input channels
  • Three switched excitation outputs
  • Eight input/output control ports
  • Two pulse counting channels
  • One serial I/O port
  • Stored up to 29,908 data points in internal memory


A typical field-based CR10 system consisted of:

  • CR10 with OS10 Operating System
  • Alkaline or Rechargeable Power Supply
  • Weatherproof Enclosure (CR10s ordered with an environmental enclosure were mounted on the enclosure backplate at the factory)

CR10 peripherals such as the CR10KD and CR10TCR, as well as sensors and data retrieval peripherals, were added to complete the system.
