The CR200X, our smallest lowest-cost datalogger, provides stand-alone operation in harsh, remote environments. It reads input from one or two sensors, then transmits the data using communication peripherals. CRBasic, its full programming language, supports simple or complex programming. Multiple CR200Xs can be configured as a network, or units can be deployed individually.Read More
The CR200X has several input channels for measuring a variety of sensors. Gas discharge tubes provide rugged electrostatic discharge protection for the inputs.
The CR200X does not make differential measurements and is not compatible with SDM devices, multiplexers, or thermocouples (refer to the Compatibility information for compatible sensors, peripherals, and software). Recalibration services are not offered for the CR200X datalogger.

The CR200X can communicate with a PC via direct connect, NL201 Network Link Interface, NL240 Wi-Fi Network Link, MD485 multidrop modem, and digital cellular modems. Data can be viewed on an iOS device, an Android device, CD295 DataView II Display, or a user-supplied PDA. To use an iOS or Android device, go to the Apple Store or Google Play and download our LoggerLink Mobile Apps free of charge. User-supplied PDAs require either PConnect or PConnectCE software.
The CR200X is not compatible with SDM devices and multiplexers.
The CR200X can measure a variety of sensors including SDI-12 sensors and 4 to 20 mA sensors. It cannot make differential measurements and is not compatible with the freezing-rain/ice, fuel moisture/temperature, geographic position, present weather, soil heat flux, soil matric water potential, and strain sensors listed on our price lists.
Applications with minimal power requirements can use the ENC200 enclosure to house the datalogger and the pn 16869 sealed rechargeable battery. The ENC200 cannot house a barometer or a battery that is larger than the pn 16869. However, an ENC10/12 or ENC12/14 enclosure is adequate for most CR200X-based systems.
The CR200X uses an external power supply and has a built-in regulator. When connected to the on-board charging circuit, the sealed rechargeable battery should be 7 A h or smaller. Using larger batteries with the datalogger's built-in charger may result in excessive PC board heating. This is especially a concern when the battery is deeply discharged or failing with a shorted cell. Campbell Scientific also recommends that solar panels be 10 W or less and wall chargers be 1 A or smaller.
Execution of this download installs the Operating System and Compiler on your computer for the following dataloggers:CR200X, CR206X, CR211X, CR216X and CR295X. It also updates the support files for the CRBasic Editor.
Note: Newer CR206X dataloggers (serial # ≥ 19122) and newer CR211X dataloggers (serial # ≥ 19143) have 250 mW radios that must use OS 3 or higher for their datalogger operating system.
