MCR1 CSL Memory Card Reader for Mixed-array Dataloggers & DSP4

Overview

The MCR1 is only compatible with our mixed-array dataloggers and the DSP4 Heads Up Display. (See the Compatibility information.) In a single package, it includes both the CSM1 and a SC532(A). The MCR1 connects to an IBM-compatible computer via a 7026 cable (supplied). AC power and SMS software are required.

Please note that availability varies by country; please contact a Campbell Scientific office or representative to discuss your data storage requirements.

Compatibility

Datalogger Considerations

The MCR1 is only compatible with mixed-array dataloggers (see below). Dataloggers that store data in a table-based format are not compatible. Older dataloggers may require a PROM upgrade.

Compatible Contemporary Dataloggers

CR200(X) Series CR800/CR850 CR1000 CR3000 CR5000 CR7X CR9000X

Compatible Retired Dataloggers

CR500 CR510 CR10 CR10X 21X CR23X CR9000

Field Displays

The MCR1 is compatible with the DSP4 Heads Up Display.

Memory Card

The MCR1 uses one JEIDA 4, PCMCIA card; proper MCR1 operation is guaranteed only with cards tested by Campbell Scientific.
