The CDM-A108 is an analog input module that allows you to easily expand your Campbell Scientific datalogging system. The CDM-A108 features a 24-bit, analog-to-digital converter and a low-noise, analog front-end to provide you with superior analog measurements. This module also supports period average measurements and includes both current and voltage excitation channels.
The CDM-A108 has eight differential inputs and two excitation channels. It provides both a 12 V and a switched 12 V port for powering your peripherals and two switched 5 V ports for peripheral control.Read More
The CDM-A108 offers 24-bit sigma-delta Adc with 16 user programmable notch frequencies from 30,000 Hz to 2.5 Hz, including 50 and 60 Hz. Previous generations of dataloggers could notch out 50 or 60 Hz.

The CDM-A108 is compatible with the CR6 datalogger. To use the CDM-A108 with a CR1000, CR800, CR850, or CR3000 datalogger, a SC-CPI (datalogger-to-CPI interface) must be used between the datalogger and the CDM-A108.
Execution of this download installs the CDM-A108 / CDM-A116 Operating System on your computer which can then be uploaded to the CDM-A108 or CDM-A116 device with the Device Configuration Utility.View Update History
The CPI Calculator is a downloadable Microsoft Excel spreadsheet used to estimate the usage and capacity of a CPI network. The calculator provides an overview on CPI devices including the CDM-A108, CDM-A116, CDM-VW300, CDM-VW305, and the CSAT3B. The calculator can also estimate the measurement speed of the CDM-A108 and CDM-A116 based on the number of channels and measurement parameters.
The CPI Calculator is an estimation tool and will help you better understand and design CPI networks by considering the following:
A software utility used to download operating systems and set up Campbell Scientific hardware. Also will update PakBus Graph and the Network Planner if they have been installed previously by another Campbell Scientific software package.
Supported Operating Systems:
Windows 10, 8.1, 8, and 7 (Both 32 and 64 bit)
