These are components of SMARTDAC+™, a newly developed next-generation data acquisition and control system with excellent operability and expandability. The GX20 will be released on October 31, and this will be followed by the GX10, GP20, and GP10 in late January.

Development Background

Recorders are used on production lines and in R&D units in a variety of industries to acquire, display, and record data such as temperature, voltage, current, flow rate, and pressure. Yokogawa has long been one of the world’s leading recorder vendors. Two major trends in the recorder market are a shift from paper to digital recording systems and the proliferation of computer networks, allowing all the data stored in recording devices to be centrally managed and monitored, no matter where they may be located.

With the recent significant improvements in the user interfaces of tablets, smartphones, and other mobile terminals, users have been calling for similar enhancements to be made with recorders and other industrial instruments to improve ease of use. There is also a need for I/O modules that will enable the flexible configuration of recorders for different applications, and a need to improve network connectivity.

The GX series panel-mounted paperless recorders and GP series portable paperless recorders for Yokogawa's SMARTDAC+ data acquisition and control system meet all these needs with features such as an easy to use operator interface like those found in the latest handheld terminals, flexible configuration, and excellent system expandability. The GX and GP series devices are the first products to be released for the SMARTDAC+ system.

Product Features

1. Easy and intuitive navigation
Easy and intuitive navigation is assured with a touch panel user interface that is similar to those found in the latest tablets and smartphones. With a flick of a finger, users can easily scroll through a waveform image to view past data, just as if they were scrolling through a roll of recording paper. To read the digital values for a specific location on a waveform image, users only need to drag a scale to that position. And with a spreading or pinching multi-touch gesture, users can zoom in or out on a waveform image. The resistive touch screen can even be operated while wearing gloves.

2. System configuration with high flexibility and expandability
By selecting the appropriate I/O modules, uses can easily configure I/O segments for a specific measurement task. The GX20 and GP20, both of which come with a large touch panel, can accommodate up to 10 modules or 100 I/O channels; the GX10 and GP10, which have a smaller touch panel, can accommodate up to 3 modules or 30 channels.

3. Open network
The GX and GP recorders support the Ethernet international LAN standard, enabling both monitoring and configuration to be carried out from Internet Explorer, a general-purpose web browser. In addition, FTP*1 support enables all recorder data to be managed through a file server. These recorders also support Modbus*2, so data can be shared with Modbus-compliant devices.

With these recorders, it is also possible to make and output a screenshot and compile a report in a specified format for output as a PDF file.

*1 File Transfer Protocol: a communications protocol for transferring files via Ethernet or some other TCP-based network
*2 Modbus: a communications protocol developed by Modicon Corporation for the connection of industrial electronic devices via Ethernet and other network protocols

Future Product Development
