Overview

The CR510 provided sensor measurement, timekeeping, data reduction, data/program storage and control functions. It stored up to 62,000 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 also suspended execution when primary power (BPALK, PS100) dropped below 9.6 V, reducing the possibility of inaccurate measurements.

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

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

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
