Overview

Current Version: 4.5

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

LoggerNet Trial v.4.5 (314 MB) 18-08-2017

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Number of FAQs related to LOGGERNET: 127

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. If LoggerNet will be initiating all connections (all outbound), there should not be a need to open firewall ports.  If there will be call-backs from the modems, by default, the port that LoggerNet listens on is 6789. This, however, can be changed with the IPPort command line parameter.

  2. As long as the same device is being moved from one communications route to another, all data collection pointers, filenames, etc., will be maintained with that data logger as it is moved.

  3. 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.

  4. A program snippet, such as the one below, would work for this purpose. The Boolean variable can be toggled from the Ports & Flags screen in LoggerNet (accessed via the Connect screen), through the Numeric Display (also accessed via the Connect screen), or under program control.

    public StoreDataFlag as boolean

    DataTable (ConditionalTable,StoreDataFlag,100)

              Sample (1,counter,Long)

    EndTable

    When storing data conditionally, be sure to allocate a specific number of records in the size parameter of the DataTable() instruction. For more information, see the Data Table Memory Allocation Tutorial.

  5. LoggerNet and its components are 32-bit applications. They have not been specifically developed for 64-bit Windows systems. However, we run some of our tests on 64-bit operating systems, and there have been no reports of customers experiencing problems specific to a 64-bit version of Windows.

    To test whether LoggerNet will work in a particular Windows environment, download the 30 day trial version from the Downloads section of the LoggerNet product page.

    Note that the purchased version of LoggerNet is separate from the trial version and requires a full installation. There is no way to unlock the trial version, and it must be uninstalled before installing the licensed version of LoggerNet. However, any files created using the trial version are stored and will be available for use when the purchased version is installed.

  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. Because the directory in which the executable files are installed is C:\Program Files\CampbellSci\LoggerNet, many operating system configurations require the user account under which the software is installed to have administrative privileges on the computer. However, after the software is installed, administrative privileges are not required by the user to run the software.

  8. LoggerNet does not run as a service. Therefore, it needs to be running to do its data collection. LoggerNet Admin does have the capacity to run as a service, and it can collect data when no one is logged in to the computer.

  9. LoggerNet version 3.3 and newer supports the CR10X, the CR800, and the CR850.
  10. Yes. The “Getting Started with RTMC Tutorial” is available for download.
