Overview

Current Version: 4.6.2

LoggerNet is our main data logger support software package. It supports programming, communication, and data retrieval between data loggers 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 data logger, but it is especially adept in applications that require telecommunications or scheduled data retrieval used in large data logger networks.

Version 4.6.1 added support for the CR1000X datalogger.

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
  • Status Monitor
  • Task Master
  • Short Cut
  • CRBasic Editor
  • Edlog
  • Transformer
  • RTMC Development

Additional Compatibility Information

Communications

LoggerNet runs on a PC, using serial ports, telephony drivers, and Ethernet hardware to communicate with data loggers via phone modems, RF devices, and other peripherals.

Software

The development tool of RTMC Pro 1.x and 2.x is not compatible with the RTMC run-time and the standard RTMC development tool in LoggerNet 4. An upgrade for RTMC Pro must be purchased separately.

Computer

LoggerNet is a collection of 32-bit programs designed to run on Intel-based computers running Microsoft Windows operating systems. The recommended minimum computer configuration for running LoggerNet is Windows 7. LoggerNet also runs on Windows 8 and Windows 10. LoggerNet runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of these operating systems.

Other Products

LoggerNet supports most commercially available sensors, SDM devices, multiplexers, relays, vibrating-wire interfaces, ET107, CompactFlash cards, microSD cards, and PC cards.

Downloads

LoggerNet Patch v.4.6.2 (337 MB) 26-03-2020

This patch will upgrade LoggerNet, LoggerNet Remote or LoggerNet Admin version 4.0 and newer to 4.6.2. A version of LoggerNet 4.x must be installed on the computer. 

LoggerNet Admin and Remote:

A change was made in the way the LoggerNet 4.6 Server performs "Custom Data Collection". A corresponding change was made in the Connect Screen 4.6 client "Custom Data Collection" functionality.

If you require "Custom Data Collection" functionality with the Connect Screen client, assure that the LoggerNet Servers and Connect Screen clients are 4.6 or higher.

Note: This application requires the Microsoft .Net 4.6.2 Framework.  If it is not already installed on your computer,  it can be obtained from the Microsoft Download Center.

Supported Operating Systems: (32 and 64 bit) Windows 10, 8.1, 8 or 7.

What's new in LoggerNet 4 Tutorial (exe format) v.- (12.9 MB) 14-09-2009

LoggerNet 4.0 was released in August of 2009. This tutorial demonstrates some of the new features and enhancements. Two new applications, View Pro and the Network Planner, are introduced.


LoggerNet Trial v.4.6.2 (345 MB) 26-03-2020

This is a fully functional 30 day trial of the standard version of LoggerNet.

Current LoggerNet users: It is recommended that you install the trial on a computer other than the one running your existing LoggerNet. If that is not practical, we strongly recommend you back up the LoggerNet working directory to prevent backward compatibility issues if you revert to a previous version. To revert you must re-install LoggerNet using the original disk and software key.

Note: This application requires the Microsoft .Net 4.6.2 Framework.  If it is not already installed on your computer,  it can be obtained from the Microsoft Download Center.

Supported Operating Systems: (32 and 64 bit) Windows 10, 8.1, 8 or 7.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. OSIsoft sells a PI interface for LoggerNet. The OSIsoft part number is PI-IN-CS-LN-NTI. Please direct all inquiries for sales and support of the interface to OSIsoft.

  2. Yes, but only if the communications links to the data loggers allow simultaneous communication. For example, two mixed-array data loggers can be contacted simultaneously using two different COM ports; however, if they are accessed via the same COM port, LoggerNet can connect to only one at a time.

  3. First, make sure the most recent version of LoggerNet is being used. (Improvements were made between versions 4.0 and 4.1 that resolved some issues with LoggerNet and some USB-to-serial cable drivers.) Next, ensure that the most recent drivers from the cable manufacturer are being used. Often, newer drivers are developed for devices after they are released, and the software shipped with those devices is not updated. The drivers can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website.

  4. On table-based data loggers, in the LoggerNet Setup screen, on the Data Files tab, there is the Collect at Most option that can be used to indicate how many records to collect. Based on how often data is stored, a calculation can be made to determine how many records represent x hours of data.

  5. LoggerNet and VisualWeather are the only datalogger support software packages, offered by Campbell Scientific, that perform scheduled data collection.

  6. Follow these steps:

    1. In the Setup screen, record the pertinent data from the Schedule and Data Files tabs. 
    2. Delete the listed data logger.
    3. Add the new data logger. 
    4. Adjust the settings on the Schedule and Data Files tabs to match what was being done previously.
      • If the settings are complicated, review the Help menu from the Setup screen to learn more about the option in LoggerNet 4.2 to Copy Device Settings in the Tools menu.
  7. Yes. If the data logger 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.

  8. The data logger has its own memory, but LoggerNet holds a cache of the data it has collected from the data logger, which is normally about twice the size of the data logger’s data capacity.
