Honeywell (Fort Washington, PA) offers the Minitrend and Multitrend Plus paperless recorders.


Minitrend: TVMI Minitrend Electronic Data Recorder features a 5.5-in., color LCD screen; and it fits the standard DIN cutout used by 100-mm, 4-in., strip chart paper recorders. It provides advanced features, such as custom screen design, allowing users to design displays that best serve their applications. Other features include Minitrend's ability to have up to 16 analog inputs; Ethernet communications; up to 16 discrete inputs/outputs; totalization; math; retransmission outputs; and transmitter power. Minitrend supports 20-ms scan rates and storage capacities up to 1 GB.

Event markers allow users to mark the ''chart'' to indicate specific events and process data, allowing for easy batch tracking.

The data storage supports multiple levels of password protection to comply with requirements of 21CFR Part 11.


Multitrend Plus: The Multitrend Plus Electronic Data Recorder represents the latest in electronic data recording in a large input/large display format. The Multitrend Plus uses a 307 mm [12.1 in] active-matrix color LCD and fits the same cutout used by 180 mm strip chart paper recorders.

The Multitrend Plus supports 20 ms scan rates and storage capacities up to 1 gigabyte. Event markers allow the operator to mark the 'chart' to indicate specific events and process data, allowing for easy batch tracking. The data storage supports multiple levels of password protection to comply with the requirements of 21CFR Part 11. The Ethernet communications capability and Trend Manager Software provide networking and real time data acquisition as well as analysis of the data.

Other features include:

  • Custom screen design - provides the customer with the ability to design displays to match the process

  • Up to 32 analog inputs

  • Up to 32 discrete inputs/outputs

  • Up to 8 auxiliary current outputs

  • Math and Totalization functions

  • Retransmission outputs and transmitter power
