Campbell Scientific’s NL100 allows our dataloggers to communicate over a local area network or a dedicated Internet connection via TCP/IP. This 10baseT Ethernet interface is compatible with all of our dataloggers and can be connected to either the datalogger’s CS I/O port or RS-232 port. In certain configurations, the NL100 may be compatible with Modbus systems (contact Campbell Scientific for details).Read More
The NL100 mounts directly to an enclosure backplate. It may be located several miles from the datalogger by using another communications device such as short-haul modems, RF modems, or the MD485 multidrop interface.
PC400, LoggerNet, and RTDAQ soft ware packages support the NL100. Typically, the interface is configured using our Device Configuration utility (DevConfig), which is bundled in PC400, LoggerNet, and RTDAQ. DevConfig can also be downloaded, at no charge, from www.campbellsci.com/downloads. Customers may change the NL100’s settings via TCP/IP, once the interface has a working IP address (complete instructions are provided in the NL100 Operators Manual).
Each NL100 requires a static IP address. Please request assignment of static IP addresses from your network administrator prior to NL100 purchase—especially if your organization uses servers running DHCP protocol.

For Modbus systems, Campbell Scientific recommends the NL115 or NL120 instead of the NL100. However, the NL100 may be used in some Modbus systems. Please contact Campbell Scientific for configuration requirements.
*Because the CR9000X includes an on-board Ethernet port, an Ethernet interface is not required.
The NL100 requires a desiccated, non-condensing environment. A Campbell Scientific enclosure is recommended when the interface is in the field. The NL100 has built-in keyhole flanges for mounting to an enclosure backplate.
*If using the RS-232 port, the NL100 must be mounted flat to fit in an ENC10/12, ENC10/12R, or ENC12/14.
Current NL100 firmware. Requires the Device Configuration Utility and a 9-pin female to female NULL modem cable.
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.
