250mm Strip Chart Recorders
DPR 250

The DPR250 recorder offers the best price/performance of any 250mm (10”inch) wide chart recorder in the market today.

The recorder is able to monitor up to 64 analogue inputs or any combination of analogue inputs, digital inputs and outputs that total up to 80.
