Circular Chart Recorders and Paperless Recorders offer a cost-effective solution for displaying process measurements in real-time and recording them for analysis and compliance requirements. Jobe Industrial Control and Measurement is a provider of Honeywell’s industry-leading, micro-processor based recorders that can record and display a variety of process parameters, including temperature, humidity, pressure or flow from transmitters. Highly accurate and extremely durable, they are ideal for high performance applications, like those used in dairy, textile and food processing, industrial ovens and heat treatment, environmental chambers, pharmaceutical manufacturing, metalworking, industrial boilers.
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.
