I am hunting for an alternative to the faithfull old strip-chart recorder.
I have bought a very nice Pharmacia GradiFrac system, but the Pharmacia 2-
channel strip-chart recorder was an obscene price, and I couldn't afford it.
Looking around, I see that recorders in general are a horrible price. It
turns out that the most unsophisticated (doesn't even have an event
marker!), single channel recorder costs much more than a full-house 486 PC.
It therefore ocurred to me that there *MUST* be a decent analogue-to-digital
card with accompanying software that turns your PC into a strip-cart
I am obviously not looking in the right places, because all I can
see is National Instruments products (like LabView) which seem like massive
overkill, and are far too sophisticated.
Does anyone have any ideas? Unfortunately, I am mostly confined to a PC
platform, but I do have an ancient Mac Plus (512k) lying around.
