When their Remote View option is turned on, Trendview paperless recorders display recorder screens in Internet Explorer as shown here:
Getting a printout was not as easy as using file > print, because the technology uses Active-X components in Windows, so the result is a blank screen; something to do with Active X and printing.
The two most common questions I get about paperless recorders are:
- How far back in time can I scroll back or playback the chart?
- How many days/weeks/months of data does the recorder save?
What people don’t realize is that the answers to these questions vary according to how the recorder’s memory is allocated.
To help you understand how the recorder’s memory works, let me explain how data is viewed and saved on a paperless recorder.
A customer contacted me earlier today after reading another blog post about running Honeywell TrendManager software on a Windows 7 computer. She was looking for a copy of the latest software compatible with her recorders and operating system. But because Honeywell is a large company with several different divisions and websites, it can sometimes be difficult for customers to find the downloads they need.
So here’s the quick fix:
Recently, a customer and I were talking about his Honeywell X-series paperless recorder, and how the information was appearing in TrendManager PC software.
The graphs were showing data with the original pen scales, 0° to 500° F. But the recorder rarely, if ever, read below 100° or above 400°, so there was a lot of “white space” on the trend chart.
Could we do anything about it?
