Digital Process Recorder (DPR)

Everything Needed for Automated Data Collection

The Digital Process Recorder (DPR), Powered by SaniTrend® Cloud, is an automated software solution providing secure acquisition and storage of critical process data.  The DPR can replace traditional data collection methods like paper chart recorders.

The DPR provides critical data collection for applications like process equipment data collection, Clean-In-Place (CIP), Clean-Out-of-Place (COP), and more.  

Two product tiers of the DPR family are available – Charts and Reports. The Charts tier includes interactive data storage and comment/review functions, along with live dashboard views, email & text notifications, and more.

The Reports tier takes a “running signal” from the process and organizes the data into discrete reports, allowing for easier review of report-based data.

Quick Tips

Does the DPR meet Industry Standards?

Yes!  The DPR helps to meet FSMA and HACCP requirements for reporting, and meets PMO requirements for electronic records [Appendix H, Section V (Criteria for the Evaluation of Electronic Data Collection, Storage, and Reporting)].
