CompactFlash (CF) Cards

One Type I or Type II CF card fits into the Imagemate's slot. Campbell Scientific offers and recommends CF cards manufactured by Silicon Systems. Silicon Systems cards are industrial-grade and have passed our ESD testing.

Only industrial-grade CF cards with a storage capacity of 2 Gbytes or less should be used with our products. Although consumer-grade cards cost less than industrial-grade cards, the consumer-grade cards are more susceptible to failure resulting in both the loss of the card and its stored data. Industrial-grade cards also function over wider temperature ranges and have longer life spans than consumer-grade cards.

Data Logger Considerations

Please note that the data loggers are not used directly with the ImageMate, but rather the data loggers listed below can write data to a CompactFlash memory card in which the ImageMate can read.
