Overview

Current Version: 4.4.1

LoggerNet is our main datalogger support software package. It supports programming, communication, and data retrieval between dataloggers and a PC.

LoggerNet consists of a server application and several client applications integrated into a single product. It can support connection to a single datalogger, but it is especially adept in applications that require telecommunications or scheduled data retrieval used in large datalogger networks.

Version 4 is our most recent major upgrade to LoggerNet that features a new tool for designing and configuring PakBus® networks, a more powerful file viewer, an upgrade to RTMC, a redesigned toolbar, and many updates to existing clients. Learn more about the upgrade in the brochure and manual linked in the Related Documents section on this page.

Version 4.4 adds support for the CR300-series dataloggers.

A copy of the current software license agreement (end-user license agreement) for LoggerNet is available in the LoggerNet Instruction Manual.

Detailed Description

The standard LoggerNet software package is recommended for those who have datalogger networks that do not require the more advanced features offered in LoggerNet Admin. It includes the LoggerNet server and client applications. The LoggerNet server stores the data in a cache and writes data to a variety of formats, including ASCII, binary, and XML.

The LoggerNet server and client applications enable you to do the following:

  • Configure the server to communicate with multiple dataloggers via a variety of communications hardware
  • Create custom datalogger programs using Short Cut, Edlog, or the CRBasic Editor
  • Connect to a datalogger to check or set the clock, send programs, or perform other administrative functions
  • Collect data on demand or schedule
  • Monitor and troubleshoot the network
  • Display real-time data in a numeric display or graph
  • View and graph data files
  • Create graphical data displays that update when data is collected and allow you to control flags, ports, and variables
  • Create automated tasks
  • Process data files using Split
  • Save data in formats (including CSV and XML) that can be imported into third-party analysis packages.

The client applications included in the standard LoggerNet software package are the following:

  • Setup
  • Connect
  • Status Monitor
  • Task Master

  1. Using the LoggerNet Connect screen, check the datalogger Status table.

  2. The Retrieve button, used to retrieve a program from a datalogger, is found on the LoggerNet Connect screen. Note that some dataloggers, such as the CR200X-series, do not store the program in a retrievable format, and the Retrieve button will be disabled.

    There is also a File Retrieval tab in LoggerNet on the Setup screen that can be used to retrieve files stored on the datalogger.

  3. The LoggerNet server imposes no specific limits on the lengths of the generic modem scripts.

  4. If communication is interrupted or intermittent, LoggerNet may stop updating the Table Monitor, Numeric Display, and Graphs. When this occurs, a button on the display that is normally titled Stop (to stop the update) changes to Start, and the button must be pressed to resume the update. Also, check the update interval on the display, as it may be set to a higher value than expected.

  5. Yes. If the datalogger has a phone modem connected, there are Edlog and CRBasic commands that can be used to initiate calls. For example, in CRBasic a call can be made with SerialOpen(), SendVariables(), and SerialClose() instructions.

  6. Because the directory in which the executable files are installed is C:\Program Files\CampbellSci\LoggerNet, many operating system configurations require the user account under which the software is installed to have administrative privileges on the computer. However, after the software is installed, administrative privileges are not required by the user to run the software.

  7. LoggerNet does not do a clock check unless there is another reason to contact the datalogger, such as for scheduled collection.

  8. LoggerNet collects data from the datalogger first. If there is additional data on a CompactFlash card, LoggerNet collects that also. Nothing special needs to be set up in LoggerNet to have this occur.

  9. Yes, but only if the communications links to the dataloggers allow simultaneous communication. For example, two mixed-array dataloggers can be contacted simultaneously using two different COM ports; however, if they are accessed via the same COM port, LoggerNet can connect to only one at a time.

  10. It is certainly possible for two instances of LoggerNet to communicate with the datalogger. Depending on the link type and capability of the datalogger, they may be able to do so simultaneously. However, it is important to ensure that each of the PakBusPort devices in each LoggerNet instance has a unique PakBus address.
