DATA PLATFORM GL7000
GL-Connection Software - integrated with the GL series

Software for high performance and easy operation
Allows connections of Graphtec's midiLOGGER series

The GL7000 can be controlled by the GL-Connection software that is included. It is an integrated application software for the GL series, the GL900, GL840, GL820, GL240 and GL220 can also be connected and controlled.

Various measurement screens
The measurement signal can be displayed in various types of screens adapted to applications.

Multi-window function, measured signal can be displayed in various forms

Multi-window function
The GL-Connection software supports up to 2000 channels and up to 10 units of the GL series. It splits up to 4 windows and each window can display different format for easy monitoring signal in large channels.

When the unit of GL series is connected to the PC via Ethernet or USB, the GL-Connection software can manage a various information such as the data in capturing, data in the free running - displaying data without saving - and data in saved file. The GL-Connection software can also display the data saved on the PC.

Tab function
The tab function allows you to manage the screen so that it can be intuitive and easy monitoring. Screen displayed in multi-window can split using the tab and selected items can be displayed. Items to be displayed can be set in detail, such as the GL body level, individual input module level, the specified channel, and other settings.

Integrated application software for the GL series

GL-Connection software is an integrated application software for the GL7000 and other GL series. When the software is used with the GL7000, it can be controlled and displayed the data including the FFT measurement. When other GL series is used, the software has mainly the waveform viewing function and have also the function to control basic items. Data captured by other GL series is compatible with the GL-Connection and APS software.

 

Connection of multiple units and the integrating function of the saved data
New function - available in version 1.60 or later -

GL-connection software will be able to manage multiple units in a mixed condition of the GL series. Data integration function allows you to understand the overall situation immediately by creating single file at the same time axis from multiple data file saved by each unit.

Yes

All units make the action in a single operation.
* The timing of the action is maybe synchronized.

It makes automatically after completing the data capture. It can also make manually.

3.Link connection (synchronous)

* Sync cable is used to connect each unit.

GL7000

No

All units make the action with full synchronization in a single operation.

It makes automatically after completing the data capture. It can also make manually.

4.Mixed connection, mixing of No.1 to No.3

Way of operation or action vary by type of connection that is the No.1 to No.3.* Full synchronization can be made when the sync cable is used in the GL7000.

Work flow of data integration

 

(*1)
The integrated file cannot be created when it exceeds 100 units or 100 channels (analog channel + logic channel).
(*2)
Data will be integrated with using fastest sampling speed when the sampling speed in each file is different.
(*3)
The data format in integrated data file is the GL7000 format even if GL series is included to capture the data.
