The CR10 was a predecessor of the CR10X. The CR10X was eventually replaced with the CR1000. The CR10 consisted of a CR10M Measurement and Control Module and a CR10WP Wiring Panel.
The CR10 had 12 single-ended (six differential) analog input channels, three switched excitation outputs, eight input/output control ports, two pulse counting channels, and a serial I/O port. It provided sensor measurement, timekeeping, data reduction, data/program storage and control functions. Up to 29,908 data points were stored in it's internal memory.
CR10s manufactured after 1 December 1993 (SN>19273) contained an internal jumper that supported use of 2 or 4 kbytes program memory (appropriate PROM also required).

A typical field-based CR10 system consisted of:
CR10 peripherals such as the CR10KD and CR10TCR, as well as sensors and data retrieval peripherals, were added to complete the system.
The CPU of the data logger can be removed and mated with a different CR800 wiring panel. This can be done by removing the four corner nuts on the underside of the CR800. Do not loosen the two middle nuts. Be careful not to damage the pins mating the CPU with the wiring panel.
A practical maximum is to connect one multiplexer per every two control terminals on the data logger. Control terminals can be shared between multiplexers to increase the number of connected multiplexers. Sharing terminals, however, requires more complex wiring and programming. Users who would like to connect more than one multiplexer per every two control terminals are advised to contact a sales or support engineer at Campbell Scientific for assistance.
