The SC-CPI is an interface between the serial port of later-model Campbell Scientific dataloggers (CR800/850, CR1000, and CR3000) and our new Campbell distributed modules (CDMs). The CDMs use the new CAN peripheral interface (CPI), and the SC-CPI allows the dataloggers listed above to connect to the CDM's CPI port.
An SC-CPI is required to connect Campbell Distributed Modules (CDMs), such as the CDM-A116, to a CR800, CR850, CR1000, or CR3000 datalogger. The SC-CPI is not required for, or supported by, dataloggers with a native CPI interface. Campbell Scientific strongly recommends that CDMs be connected to dataloggers with a native CPI interface, such as the CR6.

Please note: The following shows notable compatibility information. It is not a comprehensive list of all compatible products.
A 5-conductor cable connects the data logger to the SC-CPI, and an Ethernet cable connects the SC-CPI to the CDM.
The data logger operating system must be version OS 26.
Execution of this download installs the SC-CPI Operating System on your computer for upload to the SC-CPI device with Device Configuration Utility.
Note: The SC-CPI OS V.02 or greater is required to use the CDM-VW300/305 with the CR3000/1000/800 datalogger that is using OS 28 or higher. The CDM-VW300/305 Operating System will also need to be upgraded to CDM-VW300/305 OS V.02. If using a CR3000/1000/800 datalogger with an older OS, an operating system upgrade to the datalogger will be required.
Number of FAQs related to SC-CPI: 2
To communicate with CDM devices using the CPI protocol, the CR3000, CR1000, CR850, and CR800 dataloggers require an SC-CPI device. Only one SC-CPI device per data logger is required. It is expected that the design of future Campbell Scientific data logger products will work with CPI-based modules directly.
