Future Design’s DR 5000 offers the best of both worlds, ink cartridge or thermal printing!

The DR 5000 is a circular chart recorder like no other. Programmable alarm options combined with “ease of setup” provide the flexibility required for multiple recording applications. The ink style DR 5000 is the first recorder to “self document” setup configuration and can operate using standard or competitive charts, another first in the industry. Eliminate “multi-vendor” chart inventories while reducing operator confusion. Protect your process with the DR 5000 battery backup option, continuous recording for up to 48 hours in the event of power loss .

The thermal print version offers a single chart inventory for all of your recording needs. “Print your own” chart technology includes real time trend and digital data directly on your historical records. No more confusion when replacing charts.
