GL7000 Multichannel Modular Data Acquisition
The GL7000 is a high speed modular data acquisition unit that can be built up to fit a variety of different applications with a selection of different modules available to provide voltage, temperature or digital inputs along with voltage and alarm outputs. A total of 10 modules can be added to provide up to 112 channels on each GL7000.
The main module of the GL7000 has a built-in 2GB flash memory and an SD memory card slot (supports SDHC, up to 32GB), plus each amplifier module has a built in RAM to hold up to 2 million samples. An SSD module can be fitted to provide an additional 64GB of memory.
The GL7000 has an optional 5.7” HD colour LCD touchscreen panel. The display panel is detachable and can be remotely connected via a LAN cable. The integral USB or Ethernet ports allow for connection to your network or for direct computer connection of up to 10 GL7000 to a single PC.
Multiple storages for reliable long term measurement
Supports four destinations to save the captured data according to the conditions of the measurement;
The RAM to save 2 million samples is built into each amplifier module. The data capture duration does not decrease with increasing numbers of channels because the built-in RAM for each amplifier module is used.
Built-in Flash memory
The 2GB of Flash memory is built into the main module. The captured data can be saved directly to the built-in Flash memory when the sampling is not faster than 1ms (sampling speed: 1 k Samples/s). Saved data is retained even when power is turned off because flash memory is used.
SD memory card
SD card slot (supports SDHC, up to 32GB) is standard on the main module. The captured data can be saved directly to the SD memory card when the sampling is not faster than 1ms (sampling speed: 1 k Samples/s). It supports hot-swap, so the SD memory card can be replaced during measurement without data loss.* The captured data can be transferred easily to the PC in offline condition.
* The hot-swap is possible when the sampling is slower than 100ms.
SSD module (64GB)
Allows large amounts of data to be quickly saved when the optional SSD module is attached. The captured data can be saved directly to the SSD when the sampling is not faster than 1µs (sampling speed: 1 M Samples/s).* It has a high vibration resistance and saved data is also retained even when power is turned off.
* The number of modules are limited.
FTP client function
Captured data is periodically transferred to the FTP server for backup when the GL7000 is connected to the LAN (Local Area Network).
Easy operation with large display and touch panel
The touch panel makes setting the conditions intuitive, and it can also be operated using the cursor keys similar to the GL series.
Large easy-to-read 5.7-inch high-definition LCD monitor
Utilises a bright clear 5.7 inch wide TFT colour LCD monitor (VGA: 640 x 480 dots). Makes it easy to read data in wave form or digital form and to check measurement parameter settings.
Supports stand-alone operation and embedding into a system
Measurement settings and signal measurement can both be done without a PC by attaching the display module. The display module can be moved to different locations for remote operation by connecting it to the main module with a LAN cable*, it also can be embedded into the system. The module can still be operated by the PC even when the display module is connected.
Software for high performance and easy operation
The GL7000 can be controlled by the GL-Connection software that is included. The software has convenient functions such as saving data to the PC, replaying captured data, and converting data form. It is an integrated application software for the GL series, the GL900, GL820 and GL220 can also be connected.*
* The version for supporting other GL series will be available in December 2012.
The measurement signal can be displayed as various types of screens by the unit, the module or the specific channels that are specified in the group function. It can also be displayed as a combination of the capturing data and captured data, the Y-T format and the X-Y format, simultaneously. Up to 112 channels can be displayed in each window.*
* In case of using dual screen, total 244 channels can be displayed.
