MultiF® R3000 Color Paperless Recorder

Description    Key Screen    Main Features     Main Specifications


The R3000 series Color Paperless Recorder is a kind of the MultiF® intelligent instrument family. It is the solid-state replacement for traditional paper chart recorders.

The recorder offers real-time display of data on a color LCD display and data storage on flash memory. The R3000 has 1~12 universal analog inputs for direct current and voltage signals, thermocouples and resistance thermometers. Sensor type and measurement range are freely configurable. Up to 12 relays is provided to output alarm information.

Original appearance design, superior hardware quality, perfect software function and reliable mechanical framework make this instrument more cost-effective. In particular, the function of knob operation is a revolution at instrument domain.


Color Paperless Recorder R3000 can be applied to:

  • Chemical processing
  • Petroleum processing
  • Metal processing
  • Power generations
  • Production of fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals
  • Food and beverage processing
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Manufacturing assembly areas
  • Wastewater monitoring and recording
