Maximum of 40, 120, or 300 channels (selected depending on model)
Monitoring screens
Overview, channel overview, instrument faceplate (vertical indicators or
meters), individual detailed screens and real-time trend, historical trend, and
alarm monitoring screens
Other displays:
Current time, remaining disk area, and communication status are displayed.
File input/output:
