This is a replacement for the Partlow ARC 4100 Circular Chart Recorder.


The Partlow MRC 5000 circular chart recorder was designed with the latest innovations in recording technology, enclosures, and functionality. It is slim, trim, and simple. The MRC 5000 is a digital circle chart recorder capable of measuring, recording, and controlling up to two process variables from a variety of inputs. Two basic versions of the MRC5000 are available for trend recording – one or two pens.

The straightforwardness of the Partlow circular chart recorder is immediately evident just by looking at the unit's face. The operator interface, a four-digit display with three-button keypad, is made for simple daily operation and easy configuration. The MRC5000's clear prompting scheme provides rapid access to all configuration and operation data. The MRC 5000's operator interface also provides access to test and calibration facilities with a convenient dual function MODE switch.

A quick look inside the casing and at the chart itself also speaks to the straightforward, functional design of the MRC 5000. You will find just one jumper to configure each port. The two pens, each with configurable spans, are positioned smoothly without any slidewire feedback; this simplifies design and improves reliability. In addition, the 10 inch chart rotates at the speeds you select.

Finding a place to install the MRC 5000 is easy, with its compact 2.5 inch panel depth and short 1.3 inch protrusion from the front panel. And, don't worry about harsh environments – the MRC 5000 comes standard with a NEMA 3 rating.

Applications for the MRC 5000 include:

The MRC 5000 is ideal for basic digital recording applications with shallow depth panel requirements.

  • Process validation
  • Trend analysis
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Product safety

The MRC5000 can be used in industries such as oven, chamber, furnaces, heat treating, food processing, and harsh water environments.
