Overview

Current Version: 4.5

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 4.5 adds support for the CR1000X datalogger.

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
  • Short Cut
  • CRBasic Editor
  • Edlog
  • Transformer
  • RTMC Development
  • RTMC Run-Time
  • View Pro
  • Split
  • CardConvert
  • Troubleshooter

Frequently Asked Questions

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. As long as the same device is being moved from one communications route to another, all data collection pointers, filenames, etc., will be maintained with that datalogger as it is moved.

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

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

  6. There is no mechanism to selectively erase data from the datalogger for a given date range. However, the data tables in the datalogger can be reset, which effectively erases the data.

    Note: Following these steps will cause the loss of all data:

    1. In the LoggerNet Connect screen, click the Station Status button.
    2. When the dialog box opens, select the Table Fill Times tab, which shows the data tables in the datalogger and their sizes.
    3. Either select individual tables, or select the Select All checkbox.
    4. Click the Reset Tables button. This will erase all data in the tables.
  7. The station’s datalogger clock can be set from the Connect screen. It can also be set from the Clock tab in the Setup screen.

  8. No, but the Help in the Edlog and CRBasic editors is complete with all of this information. The CRBasic Editor Help also includes extensive examples.

  9. Typically, blue screens are the result of bad device drivers. The Internet can be very helpful in tracking down the cause of blue screens. Copy down the codes displayed. Search the Internet for “blue screen” and the code to see what device is causing the crash. Often, an updated device driver will resolve the issue.

  10. On table-based dataloggers, in the LoggerNet Setup screen, on the Data Files tab, there is the Collect at Most option that can be used to indicate how many records to collect. Based on how often data is stored, a calculation can be made to determine how many records represent x hours of data.
