Data acquisition station saves data for longer time periods



The GX and GP data-acquisition stations and GA10 software are the first members of Yokogawa's all-new SMARTDAC+ product family that incorporates Smart User Interface, Smart Architecture and Smart Functionality design principles. The stations contain applications that are designed to measure more input signals, save data for longer time periods and access that data more readily via touch display screens and a real-time, web-browser interface.

The stations feature new modular I/O architecture that allows the user to add input channels and alarm relays in any combination and at any time, simply by purchasing the required module(s) and installing them in rear panel slots. A 10-channel universal input module supports a full range of thermocouple, RTD and DCV sensor measurements, as well as mA inputs with external shunt resistors.
