Product Details
Typically Ships Within 21 - 28 Days
Restockable Yes

The "Typically Ships Within" value is an estimate of the number of calendar days within which this product is ready to ship from Campbell Scientific. Orders with more than 10 built-to-order products will likely increase the time needed to prepare the order for shipping.

To estimate how long it will take to receive an order that contains multiple products, combine the longest Ships Within value with the transit time of the shipping method you select.

Some specialized products have long Ships Within values. Because of this, you might consider submitting a separate order for these products so your other products won't be delayed.

The 15847 is available for CR500 dataloggers that have previously passed Extended Temperature Testing. Retesting requires a concurrent purchase of the 16544 recalibration and an RMA (Returned Material Authorization) from Campbell Scientific. As individual components age, their ability to perform within specifications at temperature extremes diminishes. Therefore, Campbell Scientific can not guarantee that individual units that previously passed Extended Temperature Testing will be capable of doing so at a later date.
Individual data loggers can be returned to Campbell Scientific on an RMA to determine if they can pass Extended Temperature Testing. For the extended temperature range, analog accuracies are derated approximately two times over published specifications. Campbell Scientific makes no guarantee that individual units sold originally with Standard Temperature Testing will meet Extended Temperature Testing criteria.
The 16544 recalibrates a CR500 datalogger to the original specifications. Before and after calibration sheets are supplied with the data logger. Recalibration includes standard temperature testing (-25° to +50°C). An RMA (Returned Material Authorization) from Campbell Scientific is required. The calibration price assumes return of a fully functional data logger; charges for all repairs will be added to the invoice.
