Common Problems With Electronic Chart Recorders

Chart recorders are electronic devices that read and draw data inputs onto rotating paper rolls. These machines enter this information using one or more ink pens that record inputs in various colors as motorized and electronic elements move them while rolling the paper. Electronic chart recorders are versatile devices used in numerous industrial settings, from manufacturing plants and laboratories to office buildings and water purification plants.

Like all machines, chart recorders experience the occasional technical issue or mechanical blip. Luckily, many of these problems are quite common and can be resolved by taking a few simple measures, while others require professional chart recorder repairs.

Chromatogram Won’t Record

There are numerous reasons why electronic chart recorders won’t inscribe a chromatogram. First and foremost, you’ll want to cover the basics and make sure the chart recorder is on. It may seem obvious, but it’s easy to forget to hit the power switch before attempting to record a chromatogram.

Second, double-check to make sure the cap isn’t still on the pen. Your chart recorder can’t take down inputs if the cap is blocking the pen from making contact with the paper roll.

The last simple step to getting your chart recorder in order is to make sure the standby switch is on the “record” position to ensure that the chromatogram will record while performing your experiment.

Peaks Don’t Look Accurate

If the peaks on your paper roll look abnormal or inaccurate, there are a few things you can do to recalibrate your electronic chart recorder. For peaks that look too small or too large, simply adjust the injection volume or the input voltage. Larger injection volumes will generate higher peaks, while higher settings will create smaller peaks.

If your peaks are too close together or too spread out, try modifying the tracking speed. The higher the setting, the faster the paper will scroll, resulting in broader peaks that are further apart from one another.

Paper Won’t Scroll Through the Recorder

You may find that your paper roll isn’t cycling through the recorder. In this case, be sure to check the device’s tracking units featuring the centimeters-per-minute (cm/min) and centimeters-per-hour (cm/hr) settings. The tracking speed numerals correspond directly with the centimeters of paper that scroll through the machine. Typically, cm/hr is relatively slow, so cm/min is the more widely used unit of measure.

Pen Isn’t Functioning Correctly

You may experience occasional recording issues associated with your ink pens, but these problems are generally easy to correct. If your data measurement has stopped abruptly, chances are that your pen is running out of ink. Your environment can also impact your pen’s functionality — for example, dryer conditions can cause your pens to dry out, resulting in absent or poor-quality charts. In either of these cases, simply replace your pen.

Chart Recorder Is Exhibiting Display Problems

Digital display issues, such as frozen, fuzzy, incomplete, unclear or solid black screens, can result from various underlying problems such as software issues, faulty wiring or malfunctioning main boards. The best way to resolve these complications is to take your device to a technician for electronic chart recorder repairs.
