CSM1 and MCR1 Card Storage Module and Reader

Card Storage Module and Reader
for Mixed-Array Dataloggers and DSP4
Models CSM1 and MCR1
The CSM1 is a microprocessor-controlled read/write module that stores the datalogger’s data to removable
credit card-sized memory cards. The memory cards can then be easily transported to a computer for data
download (via an MCR1).
This system allows the user to either leave the CSM1 with the datalogger and exchange the memory cards at
regular intervals or move the CSM1 from datalogger to datalogger to retrieve data from each. Because the
CSM1 has a low quiescent power consumption and a wide operating temperature range, it can be used in
remote, battery-powered applications.
The MCR1 combines a CSM1 with an SC532 interface for storage module to computer communication. The
MCR1 reads, writes, configures, and erases the memory card’s data and datalogger programs. The MCR1 is
typically used at the computer base station where it reads cards from one or more CSM1-equipped field sites.
The CSM1 and MCR1 are only compatible with mixed-array dataloggers (e.g., CR510, CR10(X), CR23X, and CR7)
and the DSP4 Heads Up Display. They are NOT compatible with our CR200-series, CR800, CR850, CR1000,
CR3000, CR5000, and CR9000(X) dataloggers.
