Chromalox Electronic Chart Recorder allows precise trending and recording, letting users monitor up to 18 process sensors for recording, storing and analyzing process critical data. The ECR1 is a paperless recorder that requires little set up.
Data is recorded on a standard 16MB compact Flash card, giving it 10 times more capacity than competitive systems. The removable cards make it easy to transfer information to a computer for permanent storage and analysis. Data can also be downloaded directly to a PC via the unit's Ethernet port. Many combinations of digital inputs and outputs can be programmed for triggering events or alarms. The ECR1 is configured through a series of six slots, each accepting a card with three sensor inputs, six digital inputs or outputs. When all six slots are filled with sensor input cards, the recorder will capture 18 process variables per second. Data can be displayed with charts or bar graphs. Pittsburgh, PA www.chromalox.com
