Multiple storages for reliable long term measurement

Supports four destinations to save the captured data according to the conditions of the measurement

1. Built-in RAM

The RAM to save 2 million samples is built into each amplifier module. The data capture duration does not decrease with increasing numbers of channels because the built-in RAM for each amplifier module is used.

2. Built-in Flash memory

The 2GB of Flash memory is built into the main module. The captured data can be saved directly to the built-in Flash memory when the sampling is not faster than 1ms (sampling speed: 1 k Samples/s). Saved data is retained even when power is turned off because flash memory is used.

3. SD memory card

SD card slot (supports SDHC, up to 32GB) is standard on the main module. The captured data can be saved directly to the SD memory card when the sampling is not faster than 1ms (sampling speed: 1 k Samples/s). It supports hot-swap, so the SD memory card can be replaced during measurement without data loss.* The captured data can be transferred easily to the PC in offline condition.

* The hot-swap is possible when the sampling is slower than 100ms.

4. SSD module (64GB)

Allows large amounts of data to be quickly saved when the optional SSD module is attached. The captured data can be saved directly to the SSD when the sampling is not faster than 1µs (sampling speed: 1 M Samples/s).* It has a high vibration resistance and saved data is also retained even when power is turned off.

* The number of modules are limited.

FTP client function

Captured data is periodically transferred to the FTP server for backup when the GL7000 is connected to the LAN (Local Area Network).

Easy operation with large display and touch panel

Improved ease-of-use with the high-definition display and touch panel

The touch panel makes setting the conditions intuitive, and it can also be operated using the cursor keys similar to the GL series.

Large easy-to-read 5.7-inch high-definition LCD monitor

Utilises a bright clear 5.7 inch wide TFT color LCD monitor (VGA: 640 x 480 dots). Makes it easy to read data in wave form or digital form and to check measurement parameter settings.

TOP

Support stand-alone operation and embedding into a system

The detachable display module allows both stand-alone and embedded system configurations

Measurement settings and signal measurement can both be done without a PC by attaching the display module. The display module can be moved to different locations for remote operation by connecting it to the main module with a LAN cable*, it also can be embedded into the system. The module can still be operated by the PC even when the display module is connected.

* Up to 10m using CAT5 LAN cable (straight connection)

High performance application software

Software for high performance and easy operation

The GL7000 can be controlled by the GL-Connection software that is included. The software has convenient functions such as saving data to the PC, replaying captured data, and converting data form. It is an integrated application software for the GL series, the GL900, GL820 and GL220 can also be connected.*

* The version for supporting other GL series will be available in December 2012.

Various measurement screens

The measurement signal can be displayed as various types of screens by the unit, the module or the specific channels that are specified in the group function. It can also be displayed as a combination of the capturing data and captured data, the Y-T format and the X-Y format, simultaneously. Up to 112 channels can be displayed in each window.*

* In case of using dual screen, total 244 channels can be displayed.

Multi-window function, measured waveform can be displayed in various forms using multiple windows

Useful functions

For real time and the post processing.

  • Statistical Calculation
    The maximum, minimum, peak, and average values are displayed while capturing data. The value between the cursors of the maximum, minimum, peak, average, and RMS will be displayed when replaying captured data.
  • File operation
    The data can be converted to the CSV format for a specified period, all data, or multiple files. A file can also be created by compressing or consolidating multiple files.
  • Search
    The search point can be set by the level, alarm, or time (the beginning of the data, center, end, trigger point, the specified time, instruction time, the number specified).
  • Send mail
    Alarm warnings can be sent via Email.
