Circular Chart Recorder Working Principle:

All the above components are mounted on a single panel. The chart will be mounted on a flat supporting plate. Curling will be prevented by the use of spring clips. Measuring element may be a helical pressure tube or the like. Levers 'a','b' and 'c' convey motion from the measuring element to the recorder. To obtain best recording light uniform pressure and smooth chart surface are desirable. A timing device drives the chart at a uniform rate. To get the best results the pen is to be accurately fixed and locked. The block diagram of circular chart recorder is shown in figure.
