Configure device

Below we describe how to configure your CLX000:

  1. Use a mini USB adapter to connect the CLX000 to your PC
  2. Verify that the green + red LED light up (see the LED video)
  3. Download and open CANvas, go to ‘Configure logger’ and select your logger model number
  4. Make a basic change - e.g. change the file split size to 10 MB
  5. Press ‘Export’ and save the CONFIG.INI file to the device SD card (overwriting the original file)
  6. Safely eject the device e.g. using the ‘Eject logger’ button in CANvas

The new Configuration File is loaded by your device the next time it is powered on.

For details on each configuration field, see the CLX000 Docs.


If your Configuration File contains invalid data (or is deleted from the SD), the device will create a default Configuration File to replace it once powered on


You can also open the CONFIG.INI file directly via a text editor to edit the fields


While you can modify the log file format (delimiters, fields etc), we recommend keeping the default settings to ensure compatibility with CANvas for processing the data

Update Firmware

In some cases you may want to update the Firmware of the CLX000 device. Below we describe the steps in brief.

  1. First, check your current Firmware by opening a log file and checking the FW rev
  2. Open the CLX000 Firmware page and download the latest (if it is newer than your current)
  3. Follow the Firmware Upgrade steps of the CLX000 Docs section 7 (p 13)

When updating, make sure that you do not put a wrong Firmware on your device (e.g. mixing a CL1000 and CL2000). Further, on some PCs, you may need to update your DFU drivers[1].


You can optionally use CANvas to support in the firmware update process

[1]You can download the DFU drivers here. To install them, open your Device Manager and locate the CLX000 port. Right-click the port, choose to install/update the driver software and browse to the dfu/ folder of the driver zip.
