Graphtec Corporation in Japan has released a new version of firmware for their GL7000 high-end modular data loggers.
Since the launch of the GL7000 back in 2012, Graphtec has received great reviews for the dynamic measuring capabilities of the GL7000 with it's ability to record from multiple modules for various and mixed signals.
With this revamp, Graphtec have integrated various suggestions they have had from users and the feedback that has been cultivated over the six years since the initial product launch.
The GL7000 has proven to be a great solution meeting recent trends that often require various input signals such as voltage, temperature, DC strain and acceleration for durability and bench style testing.
The Dual Sampling speed feature can now record slow and fast sampling signals in their own intervals at the same time in a different memory medium. While recording long intervals for slow sampling requirements, you can trigger to record dynamic transient signals at a faster sampling speed based on trigger thresholds.
This "Dual Sampling Function" will play an active part in a long-term recording such as durability tests which requires you to observe the detailed situation of a quick anomaly with the fast sampling requirements.
Graphtec have also made the DC strain and acceleration measurement more user-friendly by making the calibration factor and other steps less complicated in the set-up process.
Plus Graphtec will now be supplying the Software Development Kit (SDK) for real time data transfer which can be used for custom application developed. New libraries in LabVIEW VI will reduce the time you will need to create programs to parse run-time data to your platform.
Several additional enhancements on the GL7000 has been implemented on the system including :
- New menu for microphone sound input.
- Redesigned user interface.
- High speed data transfer for USB to PC.
- Data file capacity now up from 2GB per file to 4GB. (New Gl7000 units only)
Customers that have already purchased the GL7000 can update their instruments by downloading the new firmware and PC software from the Graphtec website.
