Current Version: 4.7
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.
A copy of the current software license agreement (end-user license agreement) for LoggerNet is available in the LoggerNet Instruction Manual.
The standard LoggerNet software package is recommended for those who have data logger 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:
The client applications included in the standard LoggerNet software package are the following:
|Operating System||Windows 10, 8, or 7 (Both 32- and 64-bit operating systems are supported.)|
|Software Level||Intermediate to advanced|
Direct connect, Ethernet, short-haul, phone modems (land-line, cellular, voice synthesized), RF transceivers (UHF, VHF, and spread spectrum), multidrop modems
Combinations of communication devices supported.
|Scheduled Data Collection Supported||Yes|
|Data Display Supported||Numeric, graphical, Boolean data objects|
Military Certificate of Networthiness (CoN)
Please note: The following shows notable compatibility information. It is not a comprehensive list of all compatible products.
|21X (retired)||The 21X requires three PROMs; two PROM 21X Microloggers are not compatible.|
|CR10X (retired)||LoggerNet is compatible with the mixed array, PakBus®, and TD operating systems.|
|CR23X (retired)||LoggerNet is compatible with the mixed array, PakBus®, and TD operating systems.|
|CR510||LoggerNet is compatible with the mixed array, PakBus®, and TD operating systems.|
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.
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.
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, Windows 10, and Windows 11. LoggerNet runs on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of these operating systems.
LoggerNet supports most commercially available sensors, SDM devices, multiplexers, relays, vibrating-wire interfaces, ET107, CompactFlash cards, microSD cards, and PC cards.
This patch will upgrade LoggerNet, LoggerNet Remote or LoggerNet Admin version 4.0 and newer to 4.7. A version of LoggerNet 4.x must be installed on the computer.
Note: This patch includes RTMC Run-time and the RTMC Standard Development v5.0. If you are using RTMC Pro 4.3.3 or older and plan to continue creating RTMC projects, we recommend that you upgrade to RTMC Pro 5.0.
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.
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 11, 10, 8.1, 8 or 7.
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.
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.

Typically, a backup from an older version of LoggerNet will work on a newer version, but there will be issues trying to go from a newer version back to an older version.
There are two station names associated with a data logger. One name is the Station Name used in the LoggerNet network map. The other name is the Station Name field in the data logger Status table. Almost all data file formats work in LoggerNet include a station name in the header of the data file. By default, the network map station name is used. However, a checkbox in the LoggerNet Setup window, Data Files tab, allows choosing the data logger Status table station name instead.
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.
LoggerNet collects data from the data logger first. If there is additional data on a CompactFlash card, LoggerNet collects that also. Nothing special needs to be set up in LoggerNet to have this occur.
Check the trans*.log in the C:\Campbellsci\LoggerNet\Logs directory. When a clock set occurs, it will show up in the logs (for example, the words "Clock Set" with a date and time of the occurrence).
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.
Yes. The files can be copied from the CD and used to install the software. Note that the CD media is proof of purchase and will not be replaced if it is lost.
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.
No. For the current licensing information, refer to the LoggerNet Instruction Manual.
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.
