Brainchild 6-Channel Paperless Chart Recorder

CHESTERLAND OH — It's getting harder for laboratories and research facilities using paper chart recorders to find replacement parts and service. Printing all the data on hardcopy takes time and is a hassle to organize and archive. CAS DataLoggers helps you go paperless with the Brainchild 6-Channel Paperless Chart Recorder, an economical replacement for monitoring temperature and other values. These data loggers feature an LCD display to bring your data to life while saving you all the time and labor costs of hunting through paper records. With Brainchild you can monitor, alarm and evaluate your process with just a glance.

Monitor your data in real time and make sure your process is operating at the correct values with these portable data loggers. The Brainchild's built-in display allows for clear review of collected data on its high-resolution 6.4' VGA Color LCD display (true VGA, 640x480 pixels) with flexible screen configuration and multiple display formats. The Brainchild features up to 6 isolated analog input channels for measuring temperature from thermocouples or RTDs at high accuracy as well as voltage and current, and also offers 6 user-configurable plug and play I/O card slots.

The Brainchild paperless chart recorder is a completely stand-alone solution with an interactive dialogue and soft function keys for quick navigation. Users can also scroll back to review historical trends. The datalogger has a fast sampling rate within 200msec for all 6 channels and also has several mathematical and programmable capabilities useful for lab applications, including statistics with instant, average, and min/max values. Additionally, the Brainchild's standard Ethernet and optional RS-232/RS-422/RS485 communication enable users to access data on the screen and setup remote monitoring via the RS serial interface or Ethernet networking.

The Brainchild's easy setup and operation get you up and running soon after delivery, and you can choose to store historical data either on a remote host PC for data evaluation and print-out, or on the device itself via Flash ROM and the removable compact Flash memory card's 128MB storage space. You can also configure the datalogger's variable alarms and messages to get instant notification whenever critical events occur such as high temperatures or current fluctuations. The Brainchild's data retention is specified at a minimum of 10 years with zero power data retention.

Additionally, the device's expandable modular architecture offers high flexibility along with optional panel mount and bench top/portable configurations with included assembly kits. If you need a higher channel count, we also offer Brainchild's 18-channel Paperless Chart Recorder giving you up to 18 input channels for voltage, current, thermocouples or RTDs.

CAS DataLoggers Technical Support Specialist Brent Irwin comments on the advantages of going paperless: "Brainchild data loggers are ideal for labs and hospitals logging temperature or other values. They're a great way to go paperless and view data in real-time while their alarming capability ensures that your experiments and processes stay on track."
