Abstract:
In the past 2 to 3 years, linear array recorders based on direct thermal printing technology have proven to be the recorders of choice for a large number of telemetry display stations. This technology initially developed for facsimile communications has evolved to meet speed and reliability required by the operation of recorders in the telemetry station environment. This paper discusses the performance of various direct thermal printing techniques employed. The focus is given to parameters that are critical to telemetry station operation such as quality of the chart output, maintenance and support, reliability and cost. The reliability issue is discussed at length as it is impacted by printhead thermal stress and mechanical wear. Other printing technologies available for chart recording are briefly reviewed as they may appear to be suitable alternatives in some telemetry applications.
