Data Acquisition System in Modular Design

Yokogawa's SMARTDAC+ GM data acquisition system improves operational efficiency due to its modular design, which facilitates the mounting and removal of modules. In addition, the system supports Bluetooth wireless communications for use with handheld mobile devices.

Module base
The company 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 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.

Bluetooth support
The 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.

Accurate power measurement
The system can be connected with an Ethernet cable to a Yokogawa WT300/500/1800 power analyser, which is used to perform the simultaneous measurements of temperature and power that are often required to test the performance of devices such as home appliances. The digital transfer of measurement data to this system enables the highly accurate acquisition of measurement data.

Main target markets include company R&D units engaged in the development of home appliances, automobiles, semiconductors and new energy applications; universities; research institutes; laboratories; and manufacturing operations in industries such as iron and steel, petrochemicals, chemicals, pulp and paper, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, water and wastewater, electrical equipment, and electronics.

Applications include acquisition and recording of data such as temperature, voltage, current, flow rate, and pressure for the evaluation testing of products, monitoring of plant equipment, and environmental monitoring.
