Product outline

MD252 is an intelligent data recorder that can be connected to various devices.
From a variety of formats such as statistical values ​​and histograms, you can print according to your needs.
Not only printing but also recording to the internal memory and SD card can be performed, and data can be managed in duplicate.
It is also economical because it is connectable for 2 indicators.
MD252 can print / record data from various devices using BCD input and RS-232C interface.
You can also easily connect Unipulse weighing indicators and digital indicators using SI/F*.
Roll paper printing, internal memory recording, SD card saving (CSV format), and link to PC can be done with this 1 unit.
*SI/F is a serial interface that is standard equipment on some of our indicators.
Printing / recording of 2 indicators
Basically, SI/F interfaces are installed in 2 channels to enable the economical double-channels printings/ recordings.
By entering via the front panel key, weight data with code can be recorded in both Ach and Bch. Code data of Ach can also be entered via an optional interface.
Code-table function
The code can use alphanumeric characters and/ or symbols for up to 6 characters or digits. Up to 100 codes can be registered. Up to 32 types/ch of classification for each code.
Code name registration by PC
The code name of MD252 can be saved on the SD card. It is also possible to read the code name which is saved on the SD card into MD252.You can register the code on your computer!
Feel at ease without paper.
Weight data of indicator and MD252 statistical data can be recorded on SD card. Even without SD card, the data equivalent to amount of data printable on 1 roll* or more rolled paper can be recorded.
(Available to print 8,000 rows on 1 roll of rolled paper.)
Abundant print formats
Statistical printing function that can print totals, statistics, displacement charts and histograms.
High-level statistical calculation functions
It is equipped with calculation functions such as Grand total, Sub-total, Max., Min., Average, and Standard deviation of recorded data.In addition, the frequency distribution allows you to understand the degree of data variation.
