Paperless Recorders PR20 Brainchild

The new PR series paperless recorders are launched in full product range with outstanding specifications and features. PR series includes a low-cost PR10, a popular PR20 and a high-end PR30. Compared with the first generation VR series, PR series offers much more, for example recorders in 4.3” & 12.1” displays in addition to 5.6”, 100 msec. sampling rate, external channels, batch, custom display, more strict FDA 21 CFR part 11, handwriting messages, SD slot, 2 USBs, pulse input, field calibration, Web Server, email, 19 languages, IP65, and yet in shorter depth 167mm.

The PR20 is a low-cost paperless chart recorder with a built-in high resolution 5.6″ touchscreen display, 6 channels, plug & play IO cards, and internal Flash memory storage. Its compact size makes it a portable solution for laboratories, factories and classrooms alike.

Users can access onsite data either on the screen data or from a remote location via RS-232/RS-485/RS-422 serial interfaces or via Ethernet networking. The PR-20 includes standard configuration software featuring a historical viewer. Configuration can be done on a PC and then sent to the recorder. Historical data can be stored in flash ROM, Compact Flash Card, or on a remote host PC for data evaluation and print-out.
