Overview

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.

Detailed 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
  • Process data files using Split
  • Save data in formats (including CSV and XML) that can be imported into third-party analysis packages.

The client applications included in the standard LoggerNet software package are the following:

  • Setup
  • Connect
  • Status Monitor
  • Task Master
  • Short Cut
  • CRBasic Editor
  • Edlog
  • Transformer
  • RTMC Development
  • RTMC Run-Time
  • View Pro

Additional Compatibility Information

Communications

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.

Software

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.

Computer

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.

Downloads

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.

What's new in LoggerNet 4 Tutorial (exe format) v.- (12.9 MB) 14-09-2009

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.


LoggerNet Trial v.4.8.1 (387 MB) 16-04-2024

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.

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. Using the LoggerNet Connect screen, check the data logger Status table.

  2. The LoggerNet application is distributed on CD media and can be installed in minutes.

  3. 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.

  4. Yes. If the data logger has a phone modem connected, there are Edlog and CRBasic commands that can be used to initiate calls. For example, in CRBasic a call can be made with SerialOpen(), SendVariables(), and SerialClose() instructions.

  5. Yes. LoggerNet can be configured to store data in a binary file format.

    Follow these steps:

    1. In the LoggerNet Setup screen, select the data logger.
    2. Choose the Data Files tab.
    3. In the Output Format field, select Binary data.
  6. Yes. Follow these steps:

    1. In the LoggerNet Setup screen, click the icon for the data logger.
    2. Choose the Data Files tab.
    3. Deselect the Use Default File Name checkbox.
    4. In the menu for the File Output Option field, choose Create Unique File Name.
  7. The data logger has its own memory, but LoggerNet holds a cache of the data it has collected from the data logger, which is normally about twice the size of the data logger’s data capacity.

  8. 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.
