Overview

The SC115 is a lightweight, portable 2 GB device that allows users to augment their onsite data storage or to transport data between a Campbell Scientific datalogger and PC. The SC115 can also be used as a USB-to-CS I/O synchronous device communications (SDC) adapter that supports direct communication between a datalogger and a PC equipped with a USB port.

Detailed Description

The SC115 consists of electronics protected in a custom molded package. It has a USB 2.0 compatible connector for attaching it to the PC's USB port, and a CS I/O 9-pin connector for attaching it to a datalogger's CS I/O port. The SC115 may be connected directly to a PC or datalogger, or connected through the supplied extension cables.

The SC115 is typically used as an external data storage device, but may also be used as a USB-to-CS I/O synchronous device communications (SDC) adapter. As a USB-to-CS I/O adapter, the SC115 supports direct communication between a Campbell Scientific datalogger and a PC equipped with a USB port. However, the SC115 is not electronically isolated, and therefore is better for temporary communications with a battery-powered PC. Another device, the SC-USB, also supports direct communications with a PC's USB port, but is optically isolated.

USB drivers for the SC115 must be installed before connecting the SC115 to a PC for configuration or as a USB-to-CS I/O adapter. The driver can be installed from the Device Configuration Utility device page by clicking the "Install the Device Driver" link.

Additional Compatibility Information

Datalogger Considerations

Connections

The SC115 has a CS I/O port for attachment to the datalogger and a USB port for attachment to a PC. You can connect the SC115 to the PC or datalogger either directly or via the supplied cables. (Only one SC115 can be connected to a datalogger at a time.) An SC12 CS I/O cable and a USB cable are shipped with the SC115.

Programming

CRBasic TableFile instruction is used to store data to the drive. Our Device Configuration (DevConfig) utility can be used for field configuration, OS download, and setting the SDC address. CRBasic and DevConfig are included in LoggerNet and PC400 datalogger support software.

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. Yes, but the data storage must be managed by the program.

  2. The SC115 works with any Campbell Scientific datalogger that has a CS I/O terminal.

  3. The available storage can be augmented by adding an NL115 or a CFM100 with an industrial-grade CompactFlash memory card. An SC115 CS I/O-to-USB Flash Memory Drive can also be used.

  4. On the Outputs page of the Short Cut program generator, each table has an option to send the data to an SC115.

  5. The SC115 can be used in three ways:

    1. It can be used as a portable CompactFlash drive to transport data between locations.
    2. It can remain connected to the datalogger as a 2G memory expansion.
    3. It can be used as a USB-to-CS I/O adapter for general communication with a datalogger’s CS I/O port.  

    When used as a memory device, the TableFile() instruction must be included in the program. The SC115 cannot be used as a USB-to-CS I/O adapter and as a memory storage device at the same time.

  6. The SC115 (2 GB) is the only device capable of extending the memory of the CR800 or CR850.
  7. As long as the program running in the datalogger has the TableFile() instruction in at least one data table, the datalogger will automatically download the appropriate data to the SC115.
