Instruction manual for Precision Graphic Recorder (PGR)
MetadataShow full item record
This manual describes the objectives, design, operation, and maintenance of the Precision Graphic Recorder (PGR), emphasizing its application to echo-sounding. The words "precision graphic recording" describe a method for displaying data by means of successive, precisely-timed rectilinear sweeps of a recording point or "stylus" across a long, moving strip of sensitized paper (Veatch and Smith, 1939, p. 61-63). The recorded data appear as dye-markings, shaded in proportion to signal amplitude along the sweep of the moving recording point.
