Compatibility with Retired Products
Customers can add CR9000XC dataloggers to networks containing the older CR9000 or CR9000C dataloggers. I/O modules other than the CR9080 can be used with either the CR9000 series or CR9000X series. CR9000 series communication interfaces (i.e., NL105, BLC100, TL925, PLA100) are not compatible with the CR9000XC, and therefore have been retired. RTDAQ software is not compatible with the older CR9000(C). Customers can upgrade a CR9000C datalogger to a CR9000XC datalogger by replacing the CR9000C's CR9031 CPU module with the contemporary CR9032C CPU module.
With several channel types, the CR9000XC is compatible with many sensors, including thermocouples and 4 to 20 mA sensors.
Measurement and Control Peripherals
Measurement and control peripherals typically used with the CR9000XC are our AM25T 25-Channel Solid State Multiplexer, SDM-CAN Interface, SDM-INT8 Eight Channel Interval Timer, and SDM-SIO4 Serial Input/Output Module. Other measurement and control peripherals are compatible but they do not support the CR9000XC datalogger's maximum measurement rate and are therefore impractical for most CR9000XC applications.
The CR9000XC typically communicates with a PC via direct connect or Ethernet. Because the CR9000XC has an on-board 10baseT/100baseT port, an Ethernet interface such as the NL100 is not required.
Storage capacity can be increased by using a PC or CompactFlash card. The CR9000XC's PCMCIA card slot supports one Type I, Type II, or Type III PC Card or the CF1 adapter and one CompactFlash (CF) card.
The storage capacity of Type II cards exceeds 1 GB. Type III cards provide data storage capacities exceeding 1 GB but may not be suitable for all environments. Campbell Scientific offers CF cards that store up to 2 GB of data. Please note that the PCMCIA and CompactFlash cards need to be industrial-grade and have a storage capacity of 2 GB or less.
Other communication peripherals are compatible but they do not support the CR9000XC datalogger's maximum measurement rate and are therefore impractical for most CR9000XC applications.
The CR9000XC includes a non-corrosive, sealed, aluminum enclosure that provides protection from water, dust, and most environmental pollutants.
CRBasic, the CR9000XC's full programming language, supports simple or complex programming and many on-board data reduction processes. CRBasic is included in RTDAQ, LoggerNet, and PC400.
RTDAQ Real-Time Data Acquisition Software is shipped with each CR9000XC (at no extra charge); the CR9000XC is also compatible with other Campbell Scientific software. Specifically, the CR9000XC is compatible with the following:
- Short Cut
- PC400 (version 1.0 or higher)
- LoggerNet (version 2.0 or higher)
- RTDAQ (version 1.0 or higher)
- VisualWeather (version 2.0 or higher)
