Section 1 Overview
This instrument records process trend lines, one or two pens, on a 10 inch circular chart. As an option, up to two alarm points are provided for each of the two pens. This recorder will accept J, K, T, R, and S Thermocouples and RTD inputs, as well as typical Millivolt, Milliamp (4-20mA) and Voltinputs, (up to 5 volts).
Process values for each pen can be displayed on the .56" LED display, or the display can be blanked. In the latter case, the display is used only for programming and setting alarm points.
The instrument can be provided with relay control outputs which can be programmed for on-off control capability.
Two optional alarm outputrelays, with SPDT contacts, are available for each pen. Each alarm is also configurable as a latching, limit device. In this case, a manual reset button is required and included when the High/Low Limit option is ordered.
1.4 DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS
An optional, RS-485 digital communications port is available that utilizes the standard MODBUS RTU protocol.
