Data acquisition has long been in the forefront of product development and research for discovering new ways to tackle materials and component issues, heat treatment, and life-cycle stress testing.

Graphtec launched its GL7000 data acquisition platform in 2015 to augment users looking to find a turn-key data acquisition kit that allows recordings of accelerometers, strain gauges, and fast sampling electrical signals (AC and frequency signals) as well as temperature recording for development necessities.

This sleek and robust systems platform is available through assigned regional Graphtec instruments distributors in your area.

DATA PLATFORM – MODEL GL7000

robust Graphtec data acquisition

Next generation Data Acquisition platform GL7000 is a modular type system with selective input amplifiers customized to meet your demands – based on your applications. Engineers may cater their applications to the most cost-effective module set up – adding value and efficiency by increasing the modules to meet new testing scenarios.  The standalone structure with an optional touch panel display provides an easy-to-use turnkey solution that focuses on delivering the necessary data to your hands and eyes as quickly as possible.

The standard software APS (GL-Connection) is included in this system, and allows immediate monitoring of data through its plug-and-play capability and converts the data to your preferred file formats (CSV or GBD).  You are also able to quickly view and analyze data on the APS software.

GL7000 achieves a module set up where each amplifier may be added on to the side of the main module unit and is expandable up to 10 modules per main unit.

data acquisition recording capability

The key to determining the best set up for your data acquisition requirement is to understand how long the recording needs to take place and how fast the sampling speed of each signal would be. To do this, Graphtec America has prepared a very intuitive sampling rate chart and a recording duration chart that gives you information on the maximum allowable recording time for each of the amplifiers.

You can select to determine the best option for your particular recording requirement: Built-in RAM (2 million points), Built-in Flash memory (2GB), SD memory card (supports up 32GB SDHC), and the optional SSD module (64GB).

blue bullet Supports Interlink with PC APS Software

With the included GL-Connection software, connection for real time analysis and recording from a PC platform through Ethernet (10Base-T, 100Base-TX) and USB2.0 (Hi-speed). Embedded WEB and FTP server functions allow real-time pull capability in downloading the data through the internet, and NTP client functions also provides real-time clock synchronization with an NTP server for accurate timing interval reading.

 

UP TO 5 GL7000 SYSTEMS CAN BE SYNCHRONIZED

With the B-559 sync cable and with the master unit controlling the START/STOP for 4 other slave units connected to the main control unit, you can synch up to 5 GL7000s. This allows an impeccable 500 channel real time viewing of data at the same time.

data acquisition recording capability

Graphtec has focused on providing an intuitive application software that is straight to the purpose of acquiring the data you need. The focus is on displaying the real time data in a waveform or timestamp with ability to showcase the data in FFT spectrum view or on digital data view. Dual display function allows you to view recorded data while you are viewing the real time data to compare and contrast the recordings while having the real time data displayed on the same screen. Come explore the world of Graphtec software experience by downloading the test software available on our support site.
