The DC6000 is the most advanced paper recording system available - incorporating the latest in measurement, communication, interface and process technologies, utilizes a high-contrast 5.6'''' color Active Matrix TFT LCD display with a rugged touch screen. Use your finger or the onboard stylus, if you prefer, to easily perform data entry and system navigation. An intuitive icon-driven menu guides you through easy to follow setup and control screens. The Display Builder feature makes setting up custom screens extremely simple. Design up to 50 custom displays containing various combinations of indicator types such as horizontal and vertical bar graphs, large and small digital indicators and horizontal or vertical trends. On-screen help is available throughout the menu system to assist you anytime during setup and use.
When it comes to storing data, the DC6000 is extremely flexible. Data can be stored to the non-volatile internal flash RAM or any of the available storage drives including CompactFlash™ and USB provided there is media present. Programmable record start and stop times allow the user to start and stop recording at predetermined intervals. Data may also be stored to a remote PC via Ethernet using the optional Exhibitor Software. In addition, the built in OPC Server allows any OPC compliant software client to connect to, communicate with and retrieve data. The DC6000 utilizes many layers of security to protect the integrity of your stored data. All data is stored in an encrypted binary format which prevents data tampering and maximizes compression. The front access media door is lockable to prevent unauthorized access to the internal removable storage media.
Using the Record Setup menu, the user can select which channels to record, the sample storage rate, whether to record alarms and/or events, and the start/stop time and date for the record session. The location of the data file is selected in this menu along with the data file name. The user can also configure the unit to start or stop recording on an alarm level or an externally triggered input.
