This product is no longer available and has been replaced by: CR800,CR850,CR200X. Some accessories, replacement parts, or services may still be available.

Overview

The CR510-2M provided sensor measurement, timekeeping, data reduction, data/program storage and control functions. It stored up to 1,000,000 data points. Data and programs were stored either in a nonvolatile Flash memory or RAM. A lithium battery backed up the RAM and real-time clock. The CR510-2M also suspended execution when primary power (BPALK, PS100) dropped below 9.6 V, reducing the possibility of inaccurate measurements.

Multiplexers, SDM devices, and thermocouples are not compatible with the CR510-2M.

  1. No. If the intention is to measure thermocouples, purchase a CR800, CR850, CR1000, CR3000, or CR9000X instead.

  2. These dataloggers are NOT compatible with SDMs or multiplexers. If more channels are needed or may be needed in the future, consider purchasing a CR10X instead.

  3. Communication is done through the CS/IO port on the CR500 at 300, 1200 or 9600 bits per second, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit and no flow control.

  4. The CR510 has all the channels, features, and instructions that the CR500 has, in addition to the following:

    • The scan interval resolution is 1/64 in the CR510 and 1/8 in the CR500. 
    • There is a Final Storage Area 2 in the CR510 that is not in the CR500. 
    • There is a battery-backed clock in the CR510 that is not in the CR500. 
    • The CR510 has 128K Flash and 128K SRAM memory. The CR500 only has 32k SRAM and 128k Flash.
    • There are several programs in the CR510 that are not in the CR500. 
    • There are 1 MB and 2 MB memory options for the CR510 that are not available for the CR500. 
    • Available operating systems in the CR510 were Standard, Modbus, Alert, Table Data. and PakBus. Only Standard Operating Software and Alert were available for the CR500.
