Chart Recorder


The Horner Chart Recorder solution is a pre-programed packaged, ready-to-use solution for customers looking for an out of the box Chart Recorder/Datalogger solution. The Chart Recorder monitors 4-20mA and/or PT100 RTD signals from the field, which can then be scaled into a displayed reading and data point. The data is presented in several manners ranging from graph-centric to numeral-centric. These scaled values also have an engineering units’ field. All of these visual options are selectable by the operator.

Part Numbers: HS-X10A-CR – X10A with Chart Recorder program – Stand-alone controller only
HS-X10A-BX01-CR-UL – Standard UL 508 Panel with wired I/O to terminal blocks for Chart Recorder




Each signal is trended and is captured in files on MicroSD, these files are created as comma separated variable (CSV) files. Alarm setpoints allow for enunciation of Warning and Alarm levels, both high and low, for each signal.

Each display showing readings has four positions, one for each signal. Flexible configuration allows for any analog channel to be routed to any of the four positions. It allows for rearrangement of the order on the screen without re-wiring. And it allows for one signal to be used for multiple scales, e.g. both °C and °F temperatures from the same RTD input.

Continuous datalogging is optionally enabled. Data is written to Excel-friendly (CSV) files. When enabled, one file daily is made for each of up to 4 enabled signals. Additionally, all signals are logged to a single file if no Recording is active (see below).

Continuous Warning/Alarm condition datalogging is always enabled. Data is written to Excel-friendly (CSV) files. One file daily is made for all enabled Warnings/Alarms that may occur. A daily file will not be made if no Warnings / Alarms are enabled, or if no Warnings/Alarms occur over the course of a day.

Specific recordings, or Records, can be made separately from the continuous recordings. Records may be started or stopped in several ways: manually, timed, and RTC scheduled. A Record takes over both the “all signals” and the Warning/Alarms datalog files. A Record file, either signal recordings or Warning/Alarm recordings, may span 2 or more days in one file.

Notification of a new Record can be sent via e-mail when the recording is done. Files are optionally attached if files remain under 1000 datalog entries. Record and all datalog files are retrievable via FTP.
