PC Recorder is a full-featured software package based on traditional
chart recorders. This accelerates the operator learning curve and
also adds several advanced functions not found in chart recorders.
Additionally, the cost of the PC recorder hardware and software is
1/3 the cost of a traditional recorder.
Configuration & Alarm Setting
MSR128 software polls data from analog input modules and allows
the user to set up remote limit alarming to another module in a
different location. Limit conditions are user-defined for each input
channel, allowing the user to specify the device address and alarm
channel. The output device can be located anywhere along the RS-485
Alarm Information and Alarm History windows function indispensable
for a data logger, enable personnel to be notified when an alarm
event occurs and to review alarm history records.
In the Alarm Setting dialog box, you can specify which tags you
want to be notified when an alarm trips, together with a message
to be added. The Alarm Information window appears on the screen
with a beep sound in an alarm condition, showing Time Stamp, Tag
Name, Pen No. and Message. The line continues blinking until the
alarm is acknowledged.
& Horizontal Trending
the Multi-View, the screen is divided in two to show two sets of 8-pen
Record views at once. One of the views can be 2-Group Overview.
Both views have independent control panels with Pen Information buttons
and Display Group selectors just as single Record view. Added to each
are view selectors to specify the view type: Horizontal Chart, Perpendicular
Chart or Overview.
Using Two Different Time Spans
With two perpendicular charts, the division of the charts can be shifted
so that they display two different time spans. Combinations
of fast and slow transient phenomena, and of discrete and analog signals,
can be visualized to the best on the screen.
Measured Signal and Control Status Monitoring
Combining a trend chart with the Overview is useful for flow and power
measurement applications. For example, the flow trend and the pump’s
ON-OFF status, and the watt-hour trend and the breaker’s ON-OFF
status, can be displayed at once.
the Multi-view, horizontal trending can be specified. Two sets
of horizontal trend charts can show 16-point signals. One of
the views can be an Overview.
Eight storing interval options are available. Sampled
data can be averaged.
Average over Storing Interval is useful to remove ripples, spikes,
and other noises.
Storing Interval setting is useful to save disk space for slowly
changing signals when Instantaneous Value at Storing Time is selected.
· Storing Mode and Conditions
Recording is manually operated on the Control Panel. However, you
can specify a time duration after which the recording is automatically
Also 'Event' Recording is available in this mode. Detecting an external
trigger signal turned ON, the PC Recorder stores a preset number
of samples (max. 3600) before and after the event moment.
Recording is automatically triggered according to the signal conditions
of a certain channel.
With an analog signal selected as trigger, when the value comes
into a specific zone predetermined by an Alarm Setting, the PC Recorder
starts recording until the signal comes out of the zone again.
With a discrete signal selected as trigger, the PC Recorder stores
when the signal is either ON or OFF as specified.
Store at Defined Time
Recording is automatically triggered at specified time. One-time
or Everyday recording can be selected.
