USER INTERFACE AND CONTROL
The DC6000 utilizes a high contrast 5.6-inch color Active Matrix TFT LCD display with a rugged touch screen. Use a finger or the on-bard stylus, if you prefer, to perform data entry and system navigation. The front panel is also fully compliant with IP65 for use in dusty or wet areas. An intuitive icon-driven menu system guides the user through easy to follow setup and control screens. The Display builder feature makes setting up custom screens extremely simple. Design up to 50 custom displays containing various combinations of indicator types such as horizontal and vertical bar graphs, large and small digital indicators, and horizontal or vertical trends. On-screen help is available throughout the menu system to assist you during setup and use.
INTUITIVE MENU SYSTEM
USER-CONFIGURABLE DISPLAY SCREENS
WRITE DIRECTLY ON THE SCREEN
The innate feature of handwriting notes and comments on the chart of paper recorders had been lost with the onset of video graphic recorders until the arrival of the DC6000. Using the high-resolution touch screen interface and the integral stylus you can once again make notes or comments directly on the chart. This on-screen annotation is stored within the data file directory and can be recalled and displayed on the recorder or in Exhibitor Software.
POWERFUL MATH PACKAGE
The onboard math package is extremely powerful. It allows the user to input complex polynomial equations using constants, custom functions, and variable inputs obtained from live channels. The resultant information can be displayed and recorded as a real-time channel. Using the intuitive Calculated Channel Setup menu, the user enters the formula and can perform a test to make sure the formula is accurate.
DATA STORAGE AND SECURITY
When it comes to storing data, the DC6000 is extremely flexible. Data can be stored to the non-volatile internal flash RAM or any of the available storage drives including CompactFlash™ and USB provided there are media present. The programmable record starts and stop times allow the user to start and stop recording at predetermined intervals. Data may also be stored on a remote PC via Ethernet using the optional Exhibitor Software. In addition, the built-in OPC Server allows any OPC compliant software client to connect to, communicate with, and retrieve data. The DC6000 utilizes many layers of security to protect the integrity of your stored data. All data is stored in an encrypted binary format which prevents data tampering and maximizes compression. The front access media door is lockable to prevent unauthorized access to the internal removable storage media. There are 3 levels of password protection to prevent unauthorized entry into critical recorder function menus. To ensure that data files are completely error-free. the DC6000 has a built-in rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride battery backup system that constantly monitors the incoming power source. In the event of a power loss or power dip, the DC6000 seamlessly switches over to the internal power and begins a safe and controlled system shutdown. When power is restored, the recorder immediately returns to the last state of operation. This guarantees that data files will never be corrupted by unexpected power conditions.
21CFR PART 11 (Available Option)
The DC6000 is fully compliant with the requirements of 21CFR Part 11. This section of the Code of Federal Regulations sets forth the guidelines for handling all aspects of electronic data storage to ensure data is secure and accurate. The DC6000 provides a password management system that allows an administrator to set multiple unique user/password combinations and assign them to one of the 3 available access levels. Each user's login password can be set to automatically expire to ensure passwords are regularly updated. The DC6000 also maintains a secure, time-stamped audit trail to independently record the date and time of operator entries and actions that create, modify, or delete electronic records.
Using the Record Setup menu, the user can select which channels to record, the sample storage rate, whether to record alarms and/or events, and the start/stop time and date for the record session. The location of the data file is selected in this menu along with the data file name. The user can also configure the unit to start or stop recording on an alarm level or an externally triggered input.
