Software

LoggerNet software packages support use of the COM9522B with our dataloggers. Loggernet supports automated error-checking or user-initiated contacts. LoggerNet also supports scheduled contact times. Our software can run unattended allowing the user to take advantage of lower off-hour telephone rates.

Enclosure Considerations

The COM9522B requires a desiccated, non-condensing environment; a Campbell Scientific enclosure is recommended. Grommets and screws are provided to attach the COM9522B to the backplate of our enclosures.
