The AR207-16A is a 16-channel 4-20mA input panel mount paperless chart recorder data logger with colour touch LCD display.  Data is stored in internal memory or via a SD memory card or USB memory stick. After a logging session, data can be transferred to a PC via a USB connection or by removing the memory card. Also features relay alarm outputs and an RS485 Modbus RTU port and Ethernet port for web interface and email alarms.

Special Offer:  Discounts of 7%, 10%, 12.5% and 15% are available when you order 10, 25, 50 and 100 items or more of this product.
