The 6000 series support multiple option
board slots, up to 4 on the 6100A and up to 9 on the 6180A. This allows
the user to customise a unit to fit their specific needs. Available
option boards include relay output boards (Form A, B, and C), and Event
The 6000 series offer high speed auto-sensing 10/100baseT Ethernet
capability.Adding the serial communications option no longer takes up
an option slot, removing the previous limitation of 30 input channels
on the 5180V. Serial interface is now through a pair of 9-pin D type
serial ports, which are software selectable between EIA232 or 422/485.
Available comms protocols are ASCII, FTP, Modbus RTU, and Modbus TCP.
6000 series instruments are inherently Modbus slaves, and can be
optionally enabled as Modbus masters.
USB (Universal Serial Bus) connectivity provides for the use of USB
memory sticks as an additional data storage media. Additionally, USB
devices including keyboard, mouse, bar code scanner, and floppy disk
drives are plug and play.
The stainless steel bezel option provides for hygienic design and
washdown capability and is ideal for clean applications such as food
& beverage, and life sciences. This option eliminates the front
media flap, therefore the optional rear USB ports should be ordered if
removable media is required.

The 6000 series instruments offer up to
128 virtual channels, configurable as Maths, Totalisers, or Counters.

The 6000 series instruments offer 6
groups as standard, with as option for an additional 6 groups - making
a total of 12.
The user screen capability has been
enhanced by the addition of memory allowing for more components, and
higher resolution pictures. The 6180A has an XGA display (1024 x 768
pixels) vs. the 5180V SVGA display (800 x 600 pixels). Also, the 6000s
support 16-bit color (65535 colors) vs. 12-bit color (256 colors)
support on the 5000s. The speed of changing from screen to screen has
also drastically improved.
Bridge software gives the 6000 series an
extremely powerful remote viewing capability. For security, Bridge
connectivity is password protected and must be enabled on a per-user
basis. Bridge Lite, now included as a standard feature, allows the user
to view the recorder's home screen from any PC that is networked to the
recorder. Bridge Full gives the user full access to all of the
recorder's features. In short, it virtually puts the recorder right in
front of you.
