An intuitive UI engineered for ease-of-use
Seamless display of historical trends—flick or drag thetrend 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 (standard accessory) or the tip of your finger. You can even select a color and line width. Alternatively, you can select from a list of preset messages.
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.
All historical trends display
Long-duration trends can be fitted to a single screen for easy viewing.
The time axis and engineering axis can expanded and compressed using a simple pinch together or apart function.
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. Start/stop pumps and perform other operations.
DAQStudio is software for creating custom displays. You can load screens you created onto the GX via Ethernet or external memory media (SD/USB) and display them.
You can select from 9 layouts, and save up to 20 configurations. (Multi-panel display is for GX20 only.)
Highly flexible and scalable architecture
Inputs and outputs are modular for easy expandability. The GX multichannel paperless recorder main unit alone provides up to 100 channels (GX20) of measurement.
Select from a wide variety of input /output modules.

Supports up to 450 channels of measurement. Note that if MATH and communication channels are included, the GX20 large memory type can record on up to 1000 channels. The GX main unit and expandable I/O can both use the same input/output modules.
|Model||Type||Max. channels||Number of channels by configuration|
|GX10||Standard||100ch||Main unit only||0-30|
|Main + expandable I/O||0-100|
|GX20||Standard||100ch||Main unit only||0-100|
|Main + expandable I/O||0-100|
|Large memory||450ch||Main unit only||0-100|
|Main + expandable I/O||0-450|
The number of channels is for analog input only.
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.
A full range of network functions and software
Through a Web browser you can monitor the GX 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 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.
Data files saved on the GX 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.
Schedule management for periodically executing calibration correction configuration and the like. The correction factor can be set separately for unit and sensor dependency. TUS report software enables you to easily create TUS (temperature uniformity survey) reports*.
* For information on TUS software, contact your Yokogawa representative.
Recorder pre-defined channel groups to separate data files with independent start and stop control. Up to 12 independent batches can be created.
Enables PID and program control
The web application enables remote operation and monitoring from a browser.
Various pre-configured control screens and display are available.
Combine and integrate complex legacy control panel into a simple and flexible data acquisition station.
Remote operation is possible through screens that are customized for your specific system.
Yokogawa's proprietary A/D converter allows the high speed module to measure data points as fast 1 ms.
* With 1ch per module. At 2 ms, 2 ch per module, and at 5 ms or more, all 4 ch per module.
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.
Supports various kinds of math computation, including basic math and functions (square root, logarithms, trigonometry). Write formulas using variables for measured or computed data and save or display the results—this saves time and effort on post-processing. Create hourly, daily, monthly, and other reports with the Report function.
Ability to assign actions tied to specific events during the operation of the data acquisition station.
Provides a variety of convenient networking functions
GX supports Modbus TCP/IP client and server modes for Ethernet communications and Modbus RTU master and slave modes for optional serial communications.
Using the Modbus/TCP and Modbus/RTU functions, you can display and save data from the server and slave devices on the GX.*
* Requires the communication channel (/MC option ).
(Connect up to 16 Modbus/TCP servers, or up to 32 for the GX20-2.)
(Up to 31 Modbus/RTU slaves can be connected.)
Using the Modbus/TCP and Modbus/RTU functions, you can acquire GX data from upstream devices.
GX supports EtherNet/IP server functions. You can access GX from PLCs or other devices and load measurement/MATH channels or write* to communication input channels (GX10: max. 50 ch, GX20-1:max. 300 ch, GX20-2: max. 500 ch).
* Requires the communication channel function (/MC option).
Protocol function that enables connection from a GX to Mitsubishi Electric PLCs without sequencer programs. You can run the GX as an SLMP client, enabling writing of GX measured data to the PLC and writing of PLC data to communication channels.*
* Requires the communication channel function (/MC option).
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.
Data acquired by the GX/GP can be accessed through Ethernet communication from a host system (OPCUA client). Writing from an upstream system to a GX communication channel requires the communication channel function (/MC option).
The GX/GP supports DARWIN communication commands. Use your current DARWIN communication programs as-is on the GX.*
* See your dealer or nearest Yokogawa representative for details.
The FTP client/server functions allow you to easily share and manage data from a centralized file server.
The GX can send a variety of informative e-mail messages that include alarm notification reports, periodic instantaneous data values, scheduled report data and other information.
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.
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.
Rock-solid hardware and highly secure
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.
With the expanded security function option, the instruments support the USA FDA's Title 21 CFR Part 11 regulations (for the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry). It gives you access to a credential-based login function, electronic signatures, audit trails, an anti-tampering function, an Active Directory-based password management function, a sign-in function, and other security features.
