Course Description

Introduction to CrBasic Datalogging


CSC offers a comprehensive 2-day hands-on monitoring and data acquisition course for Campbell Scientific dataloggers and software. This course is designed for those without extensive datalogger experience or for those wanting to increase their knowledge, and it is intended for students from all disciplines.

The course utilizes LoggerNet software, our main user tool, and Campbell Scientific branded dataloggers. The skills gained in the course will be applicable towards all Campbell dataloggers (i.e. CR6, CR1000, CR300, etc.) which are widely used in Canada and abroad. You will be introduced you to the power and flexibility of Campbell equipment, and you will gain the confidence to configure your own equipment and explore the potential of Campbell dataloggers.

The training course is taught by Campbell Scientific Technical Sales Consultants and class sizes are limited to ensure personalized instruction and assistance. "Hands-on" programming exercises are used to reinforce the concepts covered by the instructors. The course provides an excellent opportunity to connect with a monitoring expert as well as other like-minded people in the industry.
