GP10/GP20 Paperless Recorder

Industrial processes and test laboratories require rigorous, continuous monitoring in the design, validation, and service stages of product development, product testing, and manufacturing. The GP series is Yokogawa's latest laboratory recorder, with handle and footstands to enable portable and benchtop use.

The GP series is an industry-first multi-point touch panel, to improve intuitive and smart operator control. Users can scroll, pan, zoom historical data, and even write freehand messages on its dust-proof and water-proof display. It delivers industry leading reliability and measurement accuracy. The GP series is ideally suited for monitoring or troubleshooting long term physical or electrical trends.

Powerful tool for instrument performance evaluation testing (/E2 and /MC options)

Highly precise measured data from power measuring instruments (WT series power analyzers) can be acquired without loss of fidelity on the GX/GP, and recorded and displayed alongside the GX/GP's own measured data. This is ideal for performance evaluation testing because you can record instrument power consumption, temperature, and other phenomena simultaneously.

Modbus/TCP and Modbus/RTU Communications

GX/GP supports Modbus TCP/IP client and server modes for Ethernet communications and Modbus RTU master and slave modes for optional serial communications.

Modbus TCP (Ethernet connection)

Modbus TCP (Ethernet connection)

The data of server units can be displayed and saved on the GX/GP using the Modbus/TCP function*.
* Communication function option is required.

Modbus RTU (RS-422A/485 connection)

Modbus RTU (RS-422A/485 connection)

The data of slave units can be displayed and saved on the GX/GP using the Modbus RTU function*.
* Communication function option is required.

EtherNet/IP Function

GX/GP supports EtherNet/IP server functions. You can access GX/GP from PLCs or other devices and load measurement/MATH channels or write to communication input channels (max 60 CH).

EtherNet/IP Function

Automatic network setup (DHCP) function

Using Dynamic Host Confi guration Protocol (DHCP), the GX/GP can automatically acquire the settings it needs (IP address) for network communications from a DHCP server. This makes it easier than ever to install the unit on a plant network.

Automatic network setup (DHCP) function

Time synchronization with network time servers

GX/GP uses SNTP protocol in client mode to acquire time information from a network time-server. This function allows any number of GX/GP units within a facility to have precisely synchronized time; all units will record data with coordinated date and time stamp information. In addition, GX/GP can function as a server, providing time data to other SNTP client units on the network.

Time synchronization with network time servers

Be confident that recorded data is saved

Measured and calculated data is continuously saved to secure, internal non-volatile memory. At manual or scheduled intervals, the files in memory are copied to the removable media. In addition, the files can be copied and archived to an FTP server.

Data redundancy

Because of the inherent reliability and security of non-volatile memory, the possibility of losing data under any operating condition or power failure event is extremely small.

Select file formats according to your application

For increased security, measured data can be saved in binary format. This format is very difficult to decipher or modify in traditional text editors or other programs. To enable easy and direct opening of the data in text editors or spreadsheet programs, choose text format. This allows you to work with your measurement data without dedicated software.
