Compatibility

Datalogger Considerations

Compatible Contemporary Dataloggers

CR200(X) Series CR800/CR850 CR1000 CR3000 CR9000X
*

Compatible Retired Dataloggers

CR500 CR510 CR10 CR10X 21X CR23X CR9000 CR5000 CR7X
*

Notes:
*Although the CR9000X and CR9000 are compatible, the Raven II does not support their fastest communication rates and therefore is not practical for most of their applications.
