Paperless Vs. Circular Chart Recorders

As with all instrumentation, recorders have made the transition to a digital platform. Circular Chart Recorders continue to be the choice of industries focused on measuring limited inputs and requiring paper documentation for their records. Available in multiple sizes and configurations, Paperless Recorders are becoming the common selection for industries requiring more inputs, more display format options, additional alarming functionality, and remote access to data while migrating to digital record keeping. Typically costing less upfront, Circular Chart Recorders do require the on-going purchase of pens and paper, while Paperless do not require on-going component inventory.
