Field-mount paperless recorder     

The world’s first field-mountable paperless recorder featuring a unique enclosure design that enables wall- pipe- or panel-mounting



A fully sealed IP66 and NEMA 4X enclosure ensures full protection against water and dust ingress, making the SM500F ideal for hose-down and dirty applications in even the most hostile environments. A choice of mounting options together with an ultra-slim design means the recorder can be installed in virtually any location, from panel and wall to pipe. Front-mounted pushbuttons allow easy selection of data in a user-friendly Windows™ environment. Commissioning, setting and fine tuning is easily performed using the simple and concise menus. Added support is provided by an extensive, context-sensitive, inbuilt help feature.

Fully compliant with the FDA’s (Food and Drug Administration) 21 CFR Part 11 regulations concerning electronic process data collection, the SM500F is ideal for any installation where local indication and recording of process conditions is required. Typical applications include the monitoring of temperature, humidity, cold storage, warehouses, effluent and boreholes.
