Dual interval measurement with two different scan intervals

Users have the ability to choose two different scan intervals on a single GX/GP system. This allows users the flexibility to measure various types of inputs with two different scan intervals in a single system. For example, this provides for efficient, simultaneous measurement of signals with slow fluctuations such as temperature, and fast-changing signals such as pressure and vibration. Modules can be assigned to measurement groups.

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, and recorded and displayed alongside the GX'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,
    WT300/WT300E (command mode WT300), WT500, WT1800/WT1800E (command type WT1800)

Automatic network setup (DHCP) function

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

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.

Be confident that recorded data is saved

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.
