Execution of this download installs the CR1000 Operating System and Compiler on your computer. It also updates the CR1000 support files for the CRBasic Editor.
Note: This OS has crossed the 2 Meg CR1000 size limit for remote download. The OS must be downloaded to the 2 Meg CR1000 via direct connect with the Device Configuration Utility. All OS download methods are supported by the 4 Meg CR1000.
Upgrading from versions prior to version 28 of the Operating System will reset the datalogger’s CPU drive. This is due to a change in the format of the file system from FAT16 to FAT32. In order for the datalogger to operate correctly, as part of the upgrade, the CPU drive is formatted to FAT32. Any programs stored and running from the CPU drive will be lost. It is not recommended to update the datalogger’s Operating System over a remote connection where program control regulates the communication equipment (turning it on or off, etc.). In these cases, an on-site visit and a backup using DevConfig’s backup utility is necessary to update the datalogger’s Operating System.
Watch the Video Tutorial: Sending an OS to a Local Datalogger.
In all cases where the datalogger is being updated with an Operating System prior to 28, the use of DevConfig’s backup utility is recommended due to the fact that the CPU drive is formatted using the new FAT32 format.

Campbell Scientific offers the GPS16X-HVS for the purpose of synchronizing with GPS time. Other GPS units may be used if they produce GPRMC and GPGGA sentences. Time synchronization accuracy may... read more
Some possible causes include the following: The result of a hardware condition in the datalogger or the port driver
Incorrect USB drivers (Even if the correct drivers have been successfully installed,... read more
A datalogger can be programmed to initiate data transfer by using the SendVariables() or ModemCallback() instruction in CRBasic.
Yes. A CURS100 is used to convert a current signal (for example, 4 to 20 mA) output by a sensor to a voltage that can be measured by the CR1000.... read more
This depends on what is meant by “wireless.” Using telecommunications peripherals, the CR1000 can communicate with remote computers. Examples of wireless telecommunications options include cellular telephone, licensed and spread-spectrum radios,... read more
Not the same, but similar. The SDM-SIO4 provides RS-232 voltage levels; the CR1000 control ports provide 0 to 5 V only. Both usually work with all sensors, and both devices... read more
The CR1000 stores data in a binary format (1s and 0s), which is very compact. Campbell Scientific software, such as LoggerNet, collects the data in this binary format and converts... read more
In OS 24, the datalogger does not differentiate between a self-signed and a signed certificate.
In OS 24, any delay in the CR1000 communication while reading a server certificate is because the datalogger has to work its way through the certificate and set up the... read more
A network camera can be connected directly to a CR1000 or CR3000 via an NL115 or NL120 and a crossover cable. The datalogger can retrieve and store images from the... read more
The default output file format for a CR1000 is TOA5, which stands for Table Output ASCII version 5.
The HTTP Service Port in the CR1000 can be changed and applied in the Device Configuration Utility version 2 (LoggerNet 4.1 Utilities Category, Device Configuration Utility) under the Settings Editor.... read more
The CR1000 has analog inputs that measure voltage in a ±5 Vdc range. To measure a 12 Vdc voltage, a voltage divider is needed. In its simplest form, a voltage... read more
The CardOut() and TableFile() instructions in the datalogger can be used to write binary files to the datalogger CPU, CRD, or USR drive.
Alternately, LoggerNet can be configured in the Setup... read more
