DR5000 Configuration and Setup

DR5000 Configuration Setup Chart


The DR5000 is the first recorder to "self document" setup configuration. This is accomplished by utilizing a setup chart providing the user with an "on the spot" manual providing detailed configuration instructions and documents the current setup for quick review by an operator. A box of setup charts (typically 7 charts) is provided with each recorder.


Shown below is a scanned sample of the setup chart used with Counter Clockwise rotation (Partlow style charts). Setup charts for Clockwise rotations (Honeywell style charts) operate in the same fashion but turn opposite direction.




The above sample setup chart shows the following configuration (click on larger view to better see the chart.

  • Input: Type J
  • Chart Range: lower (zero point) on chart "0000" or 0 (zero) / upper (span point) on chart "0100" or 100 (span)
  • Temperature Scale: degrees F
  • Chart Rotation: 24 hour
  • Input Averaging: 8
  • Optional Alarm: High / non-latching


Configuration Instructions for each style recorder, Ink Counter Clockwise, Ink Clockwise and Thermal (print your own chart) have separate but similar instructions. The Ink style setup charts have complete instructions but the Thermal style do not due to lack of space. Below are sample instructions for Single Pen Ink Type recorders. Instructions for Two Pen Ink and Thermal may be found in the manual.
