      The strip-chart recorder has evolved from a simple pen-writing instrument to an instrumentation platform. Today's Telemetry Recording Workstations not only provide a permanent hard copy of telemetry data, but also offer high resolution videographic displays with real-time point-of-writing representation, the ability to efficiently store data digitally, and customizable user interfaces. Host control and digital data transfer can be achieved using Ethernet networks, making the instrument an integral part of a telemetry system. The Telemetry Recording Workstation is a fundamental instrument for any telemetry application or installation, due to its abilities to display, print and store real-time data.
