The CR1000 is our most widely used datalogger. It can be used in a broad range of measurement and control functions. Rugged enough for extreme conditions and reliable enough for remote environments, it is also robust enough for complex configurations.
The CR1000 builds on the foundation of our CR10X dataloggers, and has already been put to use all over the world. Increased memory and more measurement channels make it a powerful core component for your data-acquisition system.Read More
The CR1000 consists of a measurement and control module and a wiring panel. This datalogger uses an external keyboard/display and power supply. Low power consumption allows the CR1000 to operate for extended time periods on a battery recharged with a solar panel—eliminating the need for AC power. The CR1000 suspends execution when primary power drops below 9.6 V, reducing the possibility of inaccurate measurements.
The CR1000's module measures sensors, drives direct communications and telecommunications, reduces data, controls external devices, and stores data and programs in on-board, non-volatile storage. The electronics are RF shielded and glitch protected by the sealed, stainless-steel canister. A battery-backed clock assures accurate timekeeping. The module can simultaneously provide measurement and communication functions. The on-board, BASIC-like programming language supports data processing and analysis routines.
The CR1000WP is a black, anodized aluminum wiring panel that is compatible with all CR1000 modules. The wiring panel includes switchable 12 V, redistributed analog grounds (dispersed among analog channels rather than grouped), unpluggable terminal block for 12 V connections, gas-tube spark gaps, and 12 V supply on pin 8 to power our COM-series phone modems and other peripherals. The control module easily disconnects from the wiring panel allowing field replacement without rewiring the sensors.
Originally, the standard CR1000 had 2 MB of data/program storage, and an optional version, the CR1000-4M, had 4 MB of memory. In September 2007, the standard CR1000 started having 4 MB of memory, making the CR1000-4M obsolete. Dataloggers that have a module with a serial number greater than or equal to 11832 will have a 4 MB memory. The 4 MB dataloggers will also have a sticker on the canister stating “4M Memory”.

With several channel types, the CR1000 is compatible with nearly every available sensor, including thermocouples, SDI-12 sensors, and 4 to 20 mA sensors (via a terminal input module, such as the CURS100). A custom ASIC chip expands its pulse count, control port, and serial communications capabilities. The CR1000's I/O ports can be paired as transmit and receive, allowing serial communications with serial sensors and devices.
The CR1000 is compatible with all of our CDMs (requires an SC-CPI), SDMs, multiplexers, vibrating-wire interfaces, terminal input modules, and relays.
The CR1000 communicates with a PC via direct connect, Ethernet interfaces, multidrop modems, short-haul modems, phone modems (land line, digital cellular, and voice-synthesized), RF telemetry, and satellite transmitters (Argos, Iridium, and Inmarsat).
Data can be viewed on the CR1000KD Keyboard Display, the CD100 Mountable Display with Keyboard, an iOS or Android device (requires LoggerLink), CD295 DataView II Display, or a user-supplied PDA (PConnect or PConnectCE software required).
Compatible external data storage devices are the CFM100, NL115, and SC115.
The CR1000 and its power supply can be housed in any of our standard enclosures.
Any 12 Vdc source can power the CR1000 datalogger. Power supplies commonly used with the CR1000 are the BPALK, PS150, and PS200. The BPALK provides eight non-rechargeable D-cell alkaline batteries with a 7.5 Ah rating at 20°C.
Both the PS150 and PS200 consist of a sealed rechargeable 7 Ah battery and a charging regulator. Their battery should be connected to a charging source (either a wall charger or solar panel). These two power supplies differ in their charging regulator. The PS150 has a standard regulator and the PS200 has a micro-controller-based smart regulator. The PS200's regulator provides two-step constant voltage charging and temperature compensation that optimize battery charging and increases the battery’s life.
Also available are the BP12 and BP24 battery packs, which provide nominal ratings of 12 and 24 Ah, respectively. These batteries should be connected to a regulated charging source (e.g., a CH100 or CH200 connected to a unregulated solar panel or wall charger).
CRBasic, the CR1000's full programming language, supports simple or complex programming and many onboard data reduction processes. Compatible software includes:
Execution of this download installs the CR1000 Operating System and Compiler on your computer. It also updates the CR1000 support files for the CRBasic Editor.
Note: This OS has crossed the 2 Meg CR1000 size limit for remote download. The OS must be downloaded to the 2 Meg CR1000 via direct connect with the Device Configuration Utility. All OS download methods are supported by the 4 Meg CR1000.
Upgrading from versions prior to version 28 of the Operating System will reset the datalogger’s CPU drive. This is due to a change in the format of the file system from FAT16 to FAT32. In order for the datalogger to operate correctly, as part of the upgrade, the CPU drive is formatted to FAT32. Any programs stored and running from the CPU drive will be lost. It is not recommended to update the datalogger’s Operating System over a remote connection where program control regulates the communication equipment (turning it on or off, etc.). In these cases, an on-site visit and a backup using DevConfig’s backup utility is necessary to update the datalogger’s Operating System.
In all cases where the datalogger is being updated from an Operating System prior to 28, the use of DevConfig’s backup utility is recommended due to the CPU drive being formatted using the new FAT32 format.

Yes. Create a multidrop network with an MD485 between the CR5000, the CR1000, and the digital modem. See the “Digital Cellular Modem to MD485 Network” appendix item in the MD485 instruction manual.
Only one CWB100 can be connected to each odd channel control port. For the CR800 and CR850, this relates to two total units—one on C1 and one on C3. On the CR1000 and CR3000, this amounts to four total units.
Putting more than one CWB100 on a datalogger will NOT speed up sensor data collection. Only one CWB100 should be accessed at any given time, or the devices will interfere with each other. If multiple CWB100 devices are connected to a single datalogger, the data collection schedules for the CWB100 devices should be staggered. Sufficient time should be built in to allow each base unit to collect data from all of the remote sensors associated with it and to allow for any needed retries.
Pass-code lockouts (historically known as security codes) are the oldest method of securing a Campbell Scientific datalogger. This method provides a level of security, mainly for PakBus communications. However, someone with physical access to a datalogger or telecommunications hardware may be able to overcome the five-digit pass-code lockouts. To further secure PakBus communications, use the PakBus Encryption Key and PakBus/TCP password.
When using IP communications, data can be collected from a CR1000 using any of the following:
The CR1000 excitation channel current limit is 25 mA at 2500 mV. Using 1 kohm gages with multiple 4WFBS1K modules, 10 strain gages can be hooked up for each excitation channel with 2500 mV excitation.
The datalogger’s Status table has a LastSystemScan field that provides this information.
Yes. The simplest method is to use conditional program statements that execute most of the code based on time. For example, the data could be scheduled to log at 6 a.m. and finish at 8 p.m. using CRBasic instructions such as TimeIntoInterval(). Another option is to use an IfThen/EndIf construction that does a logical test of light-level measurements based on a light sensor. An additional option is to use calculated sunrise and sunset times along with a combination of RealTime() and Case instructions.
For more information, see the “Decisions, Decisions, Decisions…” article.
In the CR800-series, CR1000, and CR3000 dataloggers, there is a PreserveVariables instruction that stores the last known value of all Dim or Public variables. The values are restored if the datalogger recovers from a power failure, or if the program is stopped with the Retain Data option and then resumed.
