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 11, 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 (retired)||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. LoggerNet runs on 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 or CSI Web Server 1.6 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 or 10.
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.

If only scheduled collection is running, LoggerNet will connect to the data logger, collect the data, and then disconnect automatically.
Network Planner is new to LoggerNet 4.0. It was specifically designed to help set up data loggers in PakBus networks so that they can communicate with each other and the LoggerNet server.
The Network Planner allows the graphical layout of devices and the specification of the links between the devices. It can then use that information to generate settings for all the devices and provide the means to program those settings into the devices and also to configure LoggerNet.
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.
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.
LoggerNet and VisualWeather are the only datalogger support software packages, offered by Campbell Scientific, that perform scheduled data collection.
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.
The “table definitions out of date” message simply implies that the data logger is running a program that the PC software does not recognize or in which the data tables in the data logger have been modified. In many cases LoggerNet will update the table definitions automatically. Alternatively, in LoggerNet, navigate to Connect | Datalogger | Update Table Definitions.
No. For the current licensing information, refer to the LoggerNet Instruction Manual.
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.
There are no plans for a Mac version of LoggerNet at this time. There are customers running LoggerNet in a Windows environment on a Mac, such as in Parallels.
