The development of low cost, reliable data storage cards has revolutionised our use of portable digital equipment such as cameras, mobile phones, music players, etc. It has also affected data capture techniques.
Data loggers, event recorders and audit copy systems were once the realm of plotters or digital miniprinters but now, memory sticks or data cards are gaining popularity.
They have no moving parts to wear out and do not require constant user maintenance to replace paper rolls or ink ribbons.
Electronic data is also easier to analyse, a memory card can simply be uploaded onto a computer for searching or graphing.
Over the past few years there has been a steady migration away from printers for data capture where a hard copy ticket or receipt is not required at the time of the event.
Until now, the chanegover has been slow because it usually entails a complete re-design of the data capture equipment to take advantage of the new recording medium.
M-Tech Printers, working in conjunction with Isopharm Sentry Ltd., can now offer the Securilog e-Printer. This is an RS232C data logger which acts like a virtual or paperless printer. It incorporates a standard printer interface with a memory card writer instead of a printing mechanism.
This simple device has been designed to plug into your data capture equipment instead of your existing printer and to record your previous printer output onto a memory card.
To ensure the validity of the record, these data can be encrypted making it possible only to read but never modify the information that has been stored.
The firmware can even proof read your printed reports and produce an alert if it encounters user definable words or strings such as 'ERROR', 'HIGH', 'LOW', 'PASSED', 'FAILED', etc.
- Available as panel mount, portable or pcb for oem use
- Recorded data can be encrypted (decryption via SecurilogTM software provided)
- Replaces all standard printers
- User customisable firmware
- Alerts based on automatic word search
- SD or MicroSD card
- Card slot can be inboard, outboard or remote
- Can be powered via dedicated jacksocket or through the data cable
For integration into any data capture equipment with an RS232C printer output port. Data loggers, event recorders, transaction auditing, time keeping process control, etc. Can also be used as a serial port diagnostic or development tool to log RS232C communications.
For all decontamination applications such as; Sterilisers, Autoclaves, etc. please contact Isopharm Sentry Ltd.
