In PANGAEA, each logical record (per station and month) is published as a stand-alone dataset. The following links lead to the data availability overview of each LR in PANGAEA:

Since about 2022 logical record LR4000 has been added in the station-to-archive files by some stations. For an updated format description of LR4000 see bsrn.awi.de/fileadmin/user_upload/bsrn.awi.de/Publications/LR4000_TableA1Update.pdf.
