Multitrend SX Paperless Recorder

Multitrend SX Paperless Recorder

The Multitrend SX Electronic Data Recorder represents the latest in recording technology by providing the ability to capture continuous and batch data electronically, making the analysis of the data easier and faster in addition to being more reliable. The data is recorded in a secure digital format, eliminating interpolation errors that can arise from transposing the data from a chart to a spreadsheet for analysis. With a paperless recorder, the data is easily exported to a spreadsheet program like Excel for further analysis. The paperless solution also provides a graphical display which adds to the capability to quickly understand what is happening in the process, unlike paper recorders, which generally use either scales or digital displays for displaying the process variables.

The Honeywell X-Series paperless recorders provide features that help users with their unique data acquisition problems. Features like the AMS2750 Process Recording and Report Generation provides documentation that can be used to show compliance to the process specifications when being audited by Nadcap. The Installation Qualification/Operational Qualification (IQ/OQ) protocol function helps pharmaceutical users with their process validation needs. Other functions like Concurrent Batch recording allows user to record up to six different batch records and the Reports function allows users to get preformatted reports directly from the recorder.


    • Analog & Digital I/O - The Multitrend QX supports up to 48 analog inputs that handle T/C, RTD, Linear and 10Ω/53Ω input sensor types allowing direct connection of the sensor to the recorder. A combination of up to 48 Digital Inputs and Outputs are available to interface discrete ON/OFF conditions with the recorder; the outputs can be used to trigger an external alarm, activate a switch or valve and the inputs can be used to initiate internal recorder actions. Up to 8 Analog outputs can be used to retransmit a process variable to another device like a controller or PLC.
    • Data Storage - the Multitrend SX can store data to a Compact Flash card and/or USB Memory Stick. The data can be set to store on a per pen basis with a rate of 20 msec up to 60 hours providing the flexibility required for most applications. Storage rates can be switched to a secondary rate using the Events capability of the recorder. The patented Fuzzy Logging allows the recorder to be set up to log data based on how the data is changing; this can significantly reduce the amount of storage space required for the media.
    • Data Security - the Multitrend SX creates encrypted data files that can only be read and analyzed using the TrendManager Pro software tools to insure data integrity. Features include audit trail and password protection with enhanced time out and reuse limitations to comply with the requirements of 21 CFR Part 11.
    • Communications connectivity - the standard Ethernet capability along with the TrendServer Pro Software provides plant-wide connectivity of the recorder so those that have a need to see and review the data can get easy access to it. A standard RS485 connection is also available.
    • Display & Operator Interface - the Multitrend SX uses a 12.1" Digital Active Matrix TFT display provides clear, bright images and provides a wider viewing angle of the process data than other types of displays. The use of these displays allow the screens to be customized to provide the best representation of the process data for easy understanding and better navigation through the recorder operations and configuration.
    • Event Marker System - the Multitrend SX has a unique Event Marker system that allows the user to program process actions to cause the desired effect within the recorder or to trigger external actions based on process conditions or logical expression in the recorder.
    • Software Support Tools - a full complement of software tools are available to support configuration, data analysis, graphing, data archiving, real time communication, batch analysis, management of the database and custom screen design. These tools make it easy to set up and use the recorder.
