The NL200 communicates with Campbell Scientific dataloggers and peripherals using an Ethernet 10/100 Mbps communications link. It has CS I/O and RS-232 ports for communication and a USB port for NL200 configuration.
The NL200 can be configured to bridge Ethernet and CS I/O communications allowing access to the internal IP functionality of the CR800, CR850, CR1000, and CR3000 (e.g., web page access, email, FTP). This device also can be configured to act as a serial server, as a PakBus router, or as a TLS Proxy server.

* Although compatible, the CR9000X does not need an Ethernet interface because it has an on-board Ethernet port.
** It is possible to use an NL200 to connect to a mixed-array data logger (e.g., CR10, CR10X, CR23X, 21X, CR7) by using an SC32B between the data logger's CS I/O port and the NL200's RS-232 port.
Windows USB drivers for the NL200 Series are installed via the Device Configuration Utililty. In the Device Configuration Utility, click on the link "install the device driver" in the main body of text for the NL200 Series.
Note: Drivers must be installed before connecting the NL200 / NL201 to your computer.
