Features of the GL200A Data Logger
TFT LCD Color Display and Controls: The focal point of the GL200A data logger is its 3.5 inch (320 by 240 pixels) built-in full color display that allows real time trending, data acquisition review, and complete instrument configuration. The onboard keyboard provides full access to the instrument’s menu system as viewed through the display. Navigation is straightforward and intuitive.
Measurements: The GL200A data logger has a wide voltage measurement range (20mV to 50V full scale) across eleven programmable measurement ranges providing voltage, current, 4-20mA process currents, or thermocouple-based temperature readings. Optionally, a sensor is available for humidity measurements. Each analog channel is electrically isolated from all other channels and from the data acquisition instrument ground to allow accurate and safe measurements in industrial applications where ground potential differences are common.
Data Storage and USB Interface: The GL200A data logger is equipped with a 3.5 MB internal flash memory to allow the direct capture of acquired data. The built-in USB port may be used to connect any standard USB flash drive for incremental capacity. Alternatively, the USB interface may be connected to a PC to allow data upload in real time or from memory, as well as complete configuration and real time data acquisition.
Portability with Flexible Power Requirements: Power the GL200A data logger from its provided international AC adaptor, from an optional built-in battery pack, or from any 9 to 24 VDC source using an optional cable.
The GL200A data logger includes a Windows application for direct capture, measurement, and monitoring of data. In addition to waveform and data value capture and display, the application can export data to an Excel file for further analysis and report creation. The software includes built-in help for quick reference.
