The unit's blue, 92 X 200 pixel illuminated liquid crystal display (LCD) can show a variety of pre-configured screens and display information in bar graph , trend, and digital formats. Historical trend information can be viewed on a separate display. About 96,000 measured values can be stored in the 192 kilobyte battery-packed memory, enough for between three hours and three years of data, depending on the sampling rate. Four discrete outputs are assignable as alarms for process limits, and all four may be used for a single analog input or they may be distributed over the four analog inputs. The recorder is said to be well-suited for retrofits. For customers with vertical-style 3 X 6 strip chart recorders, the Datavis is offered with a 3 X 6 panel conversion kit, saving customers the need of modifying the panel cutout to accommodate a larger box, or move up to a PC-based system.
