impossible possible
imagine bigger better smaller, we did. We combined our extensive expertise in
absolute data security and world class control to bring you the best in recording
and control in a space-saving, small box with a superb full colour display and it is
called the nanodac™ recorder/controller. Add to this, a strong sales team
comprised entirely of degree qualified engineers who understand your process, an
absolute commitment to innovation, and 5% of our total sales continuously reinvested in research and development; we can and do imagine making the
impossible possible for our customers.
nanodac Recorder/Controller
The nanodac recorder/controller offers the ultimate in graphical recording combined with PID control for a box of its size.
The compact ¼ DIN panel mount unit offers four high accuracy universal inputs for data recording and PID control. This
secure data recording device with accurate control is enhanced by a full colour, ¼ VGA, 320 x 240 pixel display to bring a
crystal clear operator interface to even the smallest of machines.

Better Recording Strategy
The recording functionality within the nanodac instrument contains decades of knowledge and understanding of the
requirements of capturing and storing electronic data. We understand that different applications have different needs and
the nanodac recorder can store your information in either open CSV format or in a secure, check summed format to protect
data integrity. Whichever format you choose for your process we have the tools to help you keep this data safe; get it to the
place you need, and in the format you require.
50MB Flash memory for data storage
8Hz sample and recording rate
Secure, binary data (UHH) or open (CSV) data files
4 universal input channels
14 additional channels for use as mathematical
functions, Modbus inputs, totalisers or counters.
The nanodac recorder has a variety of ways in which
you can view your data: bar graph, trend, numeric
values. The clear, full colour display with your data in
the format you need makes it easy for operators to
see what is happening in a particular process. The
push buttons below the display also enable simple
scrolling between configured views.
Each nanodac instrument contains an impressive
50MB of non-volatile Flash memory for data storage.
All process data is continually logged to this memory
and the recorder offers multiple archive strategies to
ensure that your data is never lost.
Control that’s small and powerful
Better Control Algorithm
The nanodac recorder/controller can also provide two
independent control loops. This control functionality
utilises the advanced Eurotherm PID algorithm providing
high performance and reliability to your process.
Functionality includes one of the best autotune facilities
available along with overshoot inhibition (cutbacks);
compensation for power fluctuations using power
feedforward; linear, fan, oil and water cooling.
Better performance, smaller box
The nanodac input circuitry provides high accuracy with
high noise rejection. We believe that if you cannot
measure accurately, you cannot control accurately. If you
cannot measure without noise you cannot measure
accurately. This instrument meets the exacting standards
(including Nadcap) required for good control and
Designed for ease of use
As well as precision PID control from the world’s leading
supplier and secure data recording, the nanodac
instrument can be configured using iTools software. This
software is used across the Eurotherm controller ranges
and is proven to reduce engineering and save cost through
its powerful cloning facility. Any configuration created for a
nanodac recorder/controller can be stored, modified offline
and/or cloned for use in other instruments. This makes the
spares holding simple and flexible and vastly reduces
engineering and any down time that may occur. iTools also
provides a Graphical Wiring Editor reducing the
engineering time for even the most sophisticated

instrument quickly and easily

Get your data in the way you need it
PC tools to keep your data secure yet provide the flexibility you need
The nanodac recorder is supported by PC based tools to get your
data in the way you need it. Review software acts as an efficient and
secure library for data from which charts can be reviewed, printed and
exported to other PC packages as required. Review maintains the
integrity of secure, binary files (UHH format) created by the nanodac
recorder and can be configured to pull data directly over the network
to provide a third data back up route.
Automatic, data archiving to removable USB memory stick (up to 8GB)
Automatic, remote data archiving over Ethernet network using FTP
Automatic, remote data archiving directly into Review database
Create the reports you need
Dream Report™ software provides a simple solution
to extract data from the nanodac recorder and
automatically provide reports to anybody, anywhere.
It integrates a Review driver and report template to
work directly with the secure UHH data format created
by Eurotherm recording products – ensuring your
data security is not compromised and you have the
power and flexibility to create the reports you need.
Small and crystal clear
The nanodac unit is exceptionally compact and has a high
I/O density to support its four channels of data
acquisition/recording and two independent control loops.
Its ¼ VGA , 320 x 240 pixel display provides crystal clear
views onto your process from the widest of angles.
The instrument can be configured directly using the four
push buttons in a similar way to the 3000 Series controllers.
To assist with programming the unit in this way, user wiring
is provided via the front display.
