Introducing two new dataloggers from Campbell Scientifc



Scottech is proud to present the latest data logger from Campbell Scientific; the CR300. Campbell's first datalogger with native 4 - 20 mA. The CR300 is a multi-purpose, compact, low-cost measurement and control datalogger. It has numerous improved features and technologies over the CR200. The CR300 is ideal for industrial and small applications requiring long-term, remote monitoring and control.

• Native 4 - 20 mA sensor inputs
• Charge on-site battery (solar or ac-dc power converter) with inbuilt power regulator
• Operates on a very modest power budget
• Measure multiple analogue voltage or current sensors
• Measure multiple pulse output or serial/digital sensors
• Connect via a wide variety of modems for remote telemetry
• Communicate using PakBus, Modbus, DNP3 and other standard protocols
• Send encrypted/secure email messages and alarms (TLS-encrypted SMTP)
• Campbell quality surge and ESD protection
• Simplified setup with PC connection using USB port

The CR300 is compatible with nearly every available sensor. This includes analogue output voltage (0 to 2.5 V) and current (0 to 20 mA or 4 to 20 mA) sensors, thermistors, and RTDs. It is also compatible with pulse or frequency output sensors such as anemometers, rain gauges, and flow meters. SDI-12, Modbus, and other serial sensors are supported with the RS232 port and C1 and C2 as a Tx/Rx pair.


Last year Campbell Scientific released their new flagship model datalogger, the CR6. Campbell Scientific has combined the best features of all their dataloggers and added faster communication, low power requirements, built in USB, compact size, and an improved analog input accuracy and resolution.

• MicroSD card drive for extended memory requirements
• Direct USB communication to computer
• Onboard communication via Ethernet 10/100
• Flexible power input from solar panel, DC power supply, 12 V battery, or USB
• 32-bit processor and 24-bit measurement
• Static vibrating-wire measurements using patented spectral analysis
• Surge and overvoltage protection on all terminals
• Web server capability, including data display, configuration, diagnostics, and security
• Wiring made easy through removable terminal block
• Support for serial sensors with RS-232 and RS-485 native
• CPI for hosting Campbell high-speed sensors and distributed modules (CDMs)
• Programmable with CRBasic or SCWin program generator, completely PakBus compatible
• Shared operating system (OS) with the popular CRBasic CR1000 and CR3000 dataloggers

The CR6 also introduces the new universal (U) terminal, an ingenious way to allow virtually any sensor-analog, digital, or smart-to be connected to any U terminal. This is also the first multipurpose datalogger capable of doing static vibrating-wire measurements. The CR6 has 12 U terminals and four C terminals that are programmable for a variety of functions. This allows the CR6 to measure virtually any sensor, including voltage, resistive bridge, static vibrating wire, pulse, switch closure, SDI-12, and serial RS-232/RS-485.
