Overview

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.

Technical Description

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:

  • Configure the server to communicate with multiple data loggers via a variety of communications hardware
  • Create custom data logger programs using Short Cut, Edlog, or the CRBasic Editor
  • Connect to a data logger 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

LoggerNet Patch v.4.8.1 (399 MB) 16-04-2024

Known Issue: For those using the Task Master to schedule tasks, there is an issue affecting proper execution. It is recommended that you wait to update until this has been resolved in the next release of LoggerNet.

This patch will upgrade LoggerNet, LoggerNet Remote or LoggerNet Admin version 4.0 and newer to 4.8.1. A version of LoggerNet 4.x must be installed on the computer. 

Note: This patch includes RTMC Run-time and the RTMC Standard Development v5.0.1. 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 opt out on updating RTMC during the install or 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.

This is a fully functional 30 day trial of the standard version of LoggerNet. This is a trial only and can not be activated as a full version with a license key. (Network setup and data is preserved from the trial when installing the full version.)

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.

Note: 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.

  1. There are several approaches you can try:

    1. The LNDB Interface can pull data from LoggerNet and insert it into a database instance. Supported database platforms are as follows: Microsoft SQL; MySQL; unofficially, MariaDB as it is open source MySQL, PostGRESQL, and Oracle. The database table structure and metadata will match the structure of the station’s program and the station name used in LoggerNet exactly. You cannot customize the structure. Refer to the setup documentation.
    2. Read or parse data from LoggerNet .dat files. The files are CSV formatted and can be parsed in using most any programming language. Files by default are stored on the LoggerNet computer in the following path: C:\Campbellsci\LoggerNet.
    3. LDMP Server, a LoggerNet Admin component, offers a listening socket for data to be pulled directly from the LoggerNet cache over the LoggerNet Service listening port 6789. Complete documentation in LoggerNet Admin is stored in the following path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Campbellsci\LoggerNet\ldmp_server2.pdf.
    4. Read in data using the CSI web server’s built in Web API. The webAPI accepts queries in the same format as the data logger’s built-in webAPI. Refer to the data logger webAPI documentation
  2. For PakBus dataloggers, the battery voltage is found on the Station Status screen. (The Station Status screen is accessed from the LoggerNet Connect screen.) For mixed-array dataloggers, Station Status will display the lithium battery and the number of times the 12 V supply has dropped below an acceptable level. If the battery voltage is being read by the program, it may be available from the public table.

  3. 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 datalogger as it is moved.

  4. If only scheduled collection is running, LoggerNet will connect to the datalogger, collect the data, and then disconnect automatically.

  5. Follow these steps:

    1. In the Setup screen, record the pertinent data from the Schedule and Data Files tabs. 
    2. Delete the listed datalogger.
    3. Add the new datalogger. 
    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.
  6. Yes. The “Getting Started with RTMC Tutorial” is available for download.

  7. 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.

  8. If communication is interrupted or intermittent, LoggerNet may stop updating the Table Monitor, Numeric Display, and Graphs. When this occurs, a button on the display that is normally titled Stop (to stop the update) changes to Start, and the button must be pressed to resume the update. Also, check the update interval on the display, as it may be set to a higher value than expected.

  9. 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.

  10. Yes, but only if the communications links to the dataloggers allow simultaneous communication. For example, two mixed-array dataloggers 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.
