The Honeywell DR4500 classic recorder combines the simplicity of pen drawn analog traces with the sophistication of microprocessor controlled functions. This combination results in a user configurable recorder that is easily adapted to meet a variety of application requirements – from blast furnace to laboratory. In addition to recording analog traces, the DR4500 Classic Series recorder continuously displays process variable values in the selected engineering units.
For the Honeywell DR4500, both one-pen and two-pen models accept inputs from any one of a variety of sensors or transmitters within the configurable range limits. Also, models are available with one or two digital controllers to generate controlled output signals to operate valves, dampers, heating elements, etc. for process control.
The Honeywell DR4500 classic recorder features over 5,000 preprinted charts available for your specific recording needs, an operator interface that includes clear alphanumeric displays, indicators and a deviation bar graph. Other features include the use of disposable, fiber-tip ink cartridges for reliable recording with minimal maintenance and up to two versatile PID digital controllers, which let users configure the exact control action needed for their process.
The external interface selections for the Honeywell DR4500 classic recorder include Modbus communications which allow you to network your recorders to take advantage of an overall monitoring system using an RS485 network. A digital input option allows users to initiate selected recorder functions, from a remote location through two dry contact closures and an auxiliary output can be used to retransmit a process variable.
The Honeywell DR4500 classic recorder comes complete with mounting brackets, one ink cartridge for each pen, and one box of 12″ 100 starter charts (0-100 scale, 7 day rotation).
