The unique architecture of the ChartScan/1400 portable recorder offers higher speed, lower cost per channel, and unrivalled connectivity compared to most strip-chart recorders. The ChartView software which is included uses familiar Microsoft Windows™ conventions to allow display of data in a smooth-scrolling, stripchart fashion, plus digital meter, analogue meter, and bar graph formats. The ChartScan/1400 far exceeds the typical 2 Hz rate found on most strip-chart, multipoint, or hybrid recorders. The recorder may be used while connected to a notebook or desktop-PC, or as a stand-alone instrument after set-up from the PC.
