The Model 8600 Series Dataloggers are designed around the Campbell Scientific, Inc. (CSI) Model CR6 Measurement and Control System. Although primarily manufactured for use with vibrating wire sensors and thermistors, the Model 8600 Series can be configured, at Geokon’s factory, to read MEMS sensors, Carlson type sensors, voltage type sensors, 4-20 ma sensors, and numerous other specialty sensor types. The Model 8600-1 and 8600-2 Dataloggers are housed in a NEMA 4X fiberglass reinforced polyester enclosure, designed for use in harsh environments with wide temperature tolerance, resistance to moisture and humidity and protection against lightning damage. The Model 8600-3 Datalogger is housed in a rugged, water-resistant PVC enclosure (stainless steel and fully waterproof enclosures are also available) together with a battery pack (for unattended operation) and an integral Spread Spectrum Radio (for wireless data transmission).
Campbell Scientifics’ new CR6 series measurement and control datalogger is a powerful core component for data acquisition. It combines the best features of all Campbell Scientific dataloggers and adds faster communications, low power requirements, built in USB, compact size, and improved analog input accuracy and resolution. The CR6 series also introduces Campbell Scientific’s new universal (U) terminal, an ingenious way for allowing virtually any sensor, analog digital or smart, to be connected to any U terminal. This is also Campbell Scientific’s first multipurpose datalogger capable of doing static vibrating wire measurements.
