ABB’s SM500F is a four-channel recorder that offers access to operational data wherever the process may be. The data recorder can be easily installed into a panel, wall, or pipe without the additional expense of costly enclosures normally required to field-mount a traditional videographic recorder. Its fully sealed NEMA 4X and IP66 enclosure provides full protection against water, dirt, and dust, making it a good fit for hose-down and dirty applications out in the field and at the process. The data recorder is available with a choice of either a color or monochrome display to present process data in a variety of display formats including chart, bargraph, and digital indicator views. On-screen historical logs provide operators easy access to alarm, totalizer, and audit trail data in a Windows environment. Process data and historical logs are securely archived to a removable common SD camera card with a capacity of up to two GB. Immediate support can be accessed via an online help feature. The data recorder is fully compliant with the FDA’s 21 CFR Part 11 regulations concerning electronic process data collection, making it a good fit for any installation where local indication and recording of process conditions is needed. Typical applications include cold storage, warehouse monitoring, temperature and humidity monitoring, and water and wastewater applications.
