Yokogawa releases modular data acquisition system

08 February 2015

Yokogawa's new SMARTDAC+ GM data acquisition system features a modular design, which facilitates the easy mounting and removal of modules. In addition, the system supports Bluetooth wireless communications for use with handheld mobile devices.

With modular I/O, users can scale their data acquisition system based on their process requirement, with the ability to upgrade as their needs evolve.

Yokogawa has developed a new module base that eliminates the need for a base plate and enables the mounting and dismounting of single modules. With earlier non-base-plate designs, modules were connected in a row. To dismount a module in the centre of the row, users would have to disconnect all the modules to the left or the right.

The SMARTDAC+ GM system's modular design uses interconnected module bases. To replace a module, users only need to pull out the module from the module base and insert another. This greatly improves efficiency. The module bases can be easily secured to each other with a sliding lock. When the system is used in a set configuration for longer periods of time, the module bases can be fastened together with screws. 

The SMARTDAC+ GM system supports Bluetooth connectivity to tablets running the Android OS. From a handheld device, users can wirelessly monitor and operate the system and perform settings other than those done at initial system setup, which requires the use of a PC and an Ethernet or USB connection. An Android tablet can be used to start or stop data acquisition, change settings, or monitor acquired process values.
