If you demand:

  • Higher reliability
  • Increased flexibility 
  • Optimum efficiency 
  • Lower costs
  • DataChart 2000 Series Paperless Recorders are the instruments for you!

The DataChart 2000 has 2, 4, 6, or 12 direct universal isolated inputs that are menu selectable for DC voltage, DC current, thermocouples, RTDs, and Dry Contacts. The intuitive touchscreen control provides easy, fast setup and operation.

Our brilliant 5.6" (142mm) active-matrix TFT color display is the largest in its class, and with a special anti-glare coated touchscreen the viewability is second to none. 

Data is stored in non-volatile internal RAM and downloaded to removable media automatically on a preset basis or on-demand. Standard removable storage is CompactFlash® up to 2 GB.

A measurement rate of 8 samples per second for 1 channel makes the DC2000 ideal for recording process signals that change quickly such as pressure. Or, if you require information less frequently, you can select to record between 8 samples per second and ten minutes.

Communication options offer great flexibility in accessing data or controlling the DC2000. Data can be accessed and downloaded over a standard RS232C option. The RS485 MODBUS option will allow the DC2000 to be installed into an existing MODBUS network or you can connect up to thirty-one recorders in series. The 10BaseT Ethernet port option allows direct connection to LANs or WANs and the standard TCP/IP protocol means that you can transfer data over the Internet.

There are more than 20 display modes to choose from. This gives you unparalleled flexibility to view only the data you need to see in virtually any format. Grouping of channels maximizes efficiency.

Time is Money! Corporate downsizing and cost-cutting leave you with less time to accomplish your goals. DataChart recorders are virtually maintenance-free. No paper or pens to replace, no mechanical parts to wear out and because they are digital instruments, they require less time to calibrate. This allows you to use your time more efficiently.

We’re Flexible. DataChart recorders are unparalleled in providing the highest level of flexibility of any paperless recorder made in the world. Universal inputs, networking capability, powerful math packages, and a multitude of display choices allow you to display, record, and communicate your data the way you want.

Because your data is so important  DataChart recorders were designed to be ultra-reliable. We chose the finest components available and combined them with a robust modular mechanical structure. Our optimized design means fewer components are needed. Fewer components mean fewer failures. Up to 2 Megabytes of non-volatile memory keeps your data safe. You will never lose recorded data, even during a power outage. Data is downloaded automatically to the CompactFlash™ card (up to 2 Gig in size).


You can choose from more than 20 different display modes including trends, bar graphs, and digital indicators. Select pen colors, background colors, and much more. Our intuitive touchscreen control makes configuring the DC2000 a breeze. We make full use of our screen with a large, easy-to-follow menu system. The DC2000 has a brilliant  5.6” TFT active matrix color LCD display which is the largest of any 144mm square recorder. We’ve even added a special anti-glare coating to optimize viewability under any conditions.
