Overview

Current Version: 4.4.2

LoggerNet is our main datalogger support software package. It supports programming, communication, and data retrieval between dataloggers and a PC.

LoggerNet consists of a server application and several client applications integrated into a single product. It can support connection to a single datalogger, but it is especially adept in applications that require telecommunications or scheduled data retrieval used in large datalogger networks.

Version 4 is our most recent major upgrade to LoggerNet that features a new tool for designing and configuring PakBus® networks, a more powerful file viewer, an upgrade to RTMC, a redesigned toolbar, and many updates to existing clients. Learn more about the upgrade in the brochure and manual linked in the Related Documents section on this page.

Version 4.4 adds support for the CR300-series dataloggers.

A copy of the current software license agreement (end-user license agreement) for LoggerNet is available in the LoggerNet Instruction Manual.

Detailed Description

The standard LoggerNet software package is recommended for those who have datalogger networks that do not require the more advanced features offered in LoggerNet Admin. It includes the LoggerNet server and client applications. The LoggerNet server stores the data in a cache and writes data to a variety of formats, including ASCII, binary, and XML.

The LoggerNet server and client applications enable you to do the following:

  • Configure the server to communicate with multiple dataloggers via a variety of communications hardware
  • Create custom datalogger programs using Short Cut, Edlog, or the CRBasic Editor
  • Connect to a datalogger to check or set the clock, send programs, or perform other administrative functions
  • Collect data on demand or schedule
  • Monitor and troubleshoot the network
  • Display real-time data in a numeric display or graph
  • View and graph data files
  • Create graphical data displays that update when data is collected and allow you to control flags, ports, and variables
  • Create automated tasks
  • Process data files using Split
  • Save data in formats (including CSV and XML) that can be imported into third-party analysis packages.

The client applications included in the standard LoggerNet software package are the following:

  • Setup
  • Connect

Frequently Asked Questions

Number of FAQs related to LOGGERNET: 131

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. For PakBus dataloggers, the battery voltage is found on the Station Status screen. (The Station Status screen is accessed from the LoggerNet Connect screen.) For mixed-array dataloggers, Station Status will display the lithium battery and the number of times the 12 V supply has dropped below an acceptable level. If the battery voltage is being read by the program, it may be available from the public table.

  2. The LoggerNet application is distributed on CD media and can be installed in minutes.

  3. There is a difference between the Toolbar initialization files used in earlier 3.x versions of the software and more recent versions.

    To resolve this, close LoggerNet. Go to C:\Campbellsci\LoggerNet\sys\inifiles and delete the Toolbar.ini file. When LoggerNet is reopened, the Toolbar should display the default buttons.

  4. The Retrieve button, used to retrieve a program from a datalogger, is found on the LoggerNet Connect screen. Note that some dataloggers, such as the CR200X-series, do not store the program in a retrievable format, and the Retrieve button will be disabled.

    There is also a File Retrieval tab in LoggerNet on the Setup screen that can be used to retrieve files stored on the datalogger.

  5. LoggerNet does not do a clock check unless there is another reason to contact the datalogger, such as for scheduled collection.

  6. It is certainly possible for two instances of LoggerNet to communicate with the datalogger. Depending on the link type and capability of the datalogger, they may be able to do so simultaneously. However, it is important to ensure that each of the PakBusPort devices in each LoggerNet instance has a unique PakBus address.

  7. Yes. Follow these steps:

    1. In the LoggerNet Setup screen, click the icon for the datalogger.
    2. Choose the Data Files tab.
    3. Deselect the Use Default File Name checkbox.
    4. In the menu for the File Output Option field, choose Create Unique File Name.
  8. The station’s datalogger clock can be set from the Connect screen. It can also be set from the Clock tab in the Setup screen.

  9. Yes. If the datalogger has a phone modem connected, there are Edlog and CRBasic commands that can be used to initiate calls. For example, in CRBasic a call can be made with SerialOpen(), SendVariables(), and SerialClose() instructions.
