C.A 6161 Built For Your Workflow

The Chauvin Arnoux CA6161 Machine Tester is equipped with a keypad with four keys for quick access to certain functions whatever the context may be: printout of a measurement on the sticker/label printer, display of helps screens for the selected function, return to home screen and return to the previous screen. In particular, this can be used to return quickly to the home screen, wherever you are in the HMI tree-structure.

The CA 6161 can store up to 100,000 tests in its memory. PC software transfers the data from completed tests via USB or WiFi for analysis and report generation. Firmware upgrades are performed very simply using a USB drive.
