Data Recording

Data recording equipment consists of test tools and systems that carefully measure and record atmospheric and electrical information in order to help ensure that equipment, cargo, and facilities are kept in the best possible condition. Paperless devices that continuously record variables such as voltage, water, oil pressure, temperature, and humidity and show them on an LCD screen are known as chartless digital recorders, electrical properties data loggers, and nonelectrical properties data loggers. Temperature and humidity data are recorded on revolving, round paper charts using pens over a set time period, providing an at-a-glance history of the circumstances. Strip chart temperature recorders employ pens to record temperature differences on a long strip of paper that is ejected from the recorder, and are commonly used to monitor product conditions throughout shipping. Software and adapters for recorders and data loggers improve the performance of data recording devices.
