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.
Releasing SMARTDAC+ GX/GP Series Release 2 with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance and Custom Display
Main Features of SMARTDAC+ R2
A full range of network functions and software
Through a Web browser (Internet Explorer 8/9/10/11) you can monitor the GX/GP in real time and change settings. You can easily build a seamless, low-cost remote monitoring system with no additional software.
You can view monitor screens in real time that are identical to the trends, digital, and other displays on the GX/GP main unit.
The setting screen lets you copy AI channel settings and other information to Excel for editing. You can reimport the data into the setting screen after editing.
Dedicated software (free download) is available for loading waveforms and GX/GP settings.
Data files saved on the GX/GP can be viewed and printed. You can perform statistical computation over an area and export to ASCII, Excel, or other formats.
Save settings or transfer them to the GX/GP.
This function automatically creates spreadsheets in PDF or Excel format.
Spreadsheets are created according to the template loaded on the main unit. Templates are available for Excel and PDF. PDF spreadsheet templates are created with a free report template builder program.
Automatically generated spreadsheets (PDF or Excel) are saved to external memory media (SD card) at regular intervals. You can also transfer them via FTP.
Spreadsheets generated from PDF spreadsheet templates can be automatically output from the GX/GP to a printer through a PC.
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.
Models that can be connected: Yokogawa Meters & Instruments Corp. WT series power analyzers WT310/WT330/WT332, WT500, WT1800
Max. no. of connections: 8 (GX10/GP10), 16 (GX20/GP20)
The GX/GP supports DARWIN communication commands. Use your current DARWIN communication programs as-is on the GX-GP.
Provides a variety of convenient networking functions
The FTP client/server functions allow you to easily share and manage data from a centralized file server.
The GX/GP can send a variety of informative e-mail messages that include alarm notification reports, periodic instantaneous data values, scheduled report data and other information.
GX/GP supports Modbus TCP/IP client and server modes for Ethernet communications and Modbus RTU master and slave modes for optional serial communications.
The data of server units can be displayed and saved on the GX/GP using the Modbus/TCP function*.
* Communication function option is required.
The data of slave units can be displayed and saved on the GX/GP using the Modbus RTU function*.
* Communication function option is required.
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).
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.
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.
An intuitive UI engineered for ease-of-use
Easily review historical data
Seamless display of historical trends—flick or drag the trend display to scroll through the data, even during measurement.
From a calendar, jump to waveforms of a specific date. From the alarm summary, jump to the waveform active during the alarm.
Immediately clear areas of concern with a hand-written message.
You can draw or hand-write on the waveform area using a stylus (included) or the tip of your finger. You can even select a color and line width.
Save trend waveforms of interest or screens displayed during alarms as image (PNG) files, and print them out at the same time.
Move the scale to display the value corresponding to that position as a numeric value. Instantly check maximum/minimum measured values.
Long-duration trends can be fi tted to a single screen for easy viewing.
All historical trends display
The time axis can be compressed—simply pinch apart and together and to zoom in and out.
Pinch apart / Pinch together
You can arrange display objects such as trend, numeric, and bar graphs any way you like to create monitor displays that are customized to the environment.
DAQStudio is software for creating custom displays. You can load screens you created onto the GX/GP via Ethernet or external memory media (SD/USB) and display them.
Physical quantities are displayed and recorded on a log scale.
You can select from 9 layouts, and save up to 20 configurations.
Highly flexible and scalable architecture
Inputs and outputs are modular for easy expandability. The GX/GP multichannel paperless recorder main unit alone provides up to 100 channels (GX20/GP20) of measurement.
Supports up to 450 channels of measurement. Note that if MATH and communication channels are included, the GX20/GP20 large memory type can record on up to 1000 channels. The GX/GP main unit and expandable I/O can both use the same input/output modules
When the recorder is installed offsite (away from the DUT), you can place the expandable I/O at the site and monitor data without the need for long-distance wiring of thermocouples and other sensors.
Select from a wide variety of input/output modules.
|GX90XA-10-U2||Analog input module||DC voltage, DC current, thermocouple, RTD, contact (semiconductor relay scanner type)||10|
|GX90XA-10-L1||Low withstand voltage, DC voltage, thermocouple, contact||10|
|GX90XA-10-T1||DC voltage, thermocouple, contact (electromagnetic relay scanner type)||10|
|GX90XA-10-C1||DC current (mA)||10|
|GX90XD||Digital input module||Remote control input or operation recording||16|
|GX90YD||Digital output module||Alarm output||6|
|GX90WD||Digital input/output module||Remote control input or operation recording/alarm output||DI:8/DO:6|
Highly secure with proven reliability
Our portable models are easy to take anywhere, and offer the same functionality and ease-of-use.
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.
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.
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.
ASCI data display
Binary data display
With the advanced security function option, GX/GP supports the USA FDA's Title 21 CFR Part 11 regulation. It gives you access to a login function for requiring user names, IDs, and passwords, plus electronic signatures , audit trails, an anti-tampering function, and other security features.
Safely sends and receives customer data.
