The GL800 is a compact data logger come chart recorder, with an A5 footprint, providing excellent portability. The GL800 is fitted with 20 channels as standard but can be expanded from 20 to 200 channels with the optional expansion modules. All channels are isolated channel-to-channel and channel-to-ground. It has the ability to perform simultaneous measurement of voltage , temperature and humidity. It also supports such inputs as pulse (e.g. power, rpm and flow) and logic, in addition to voltage and temperature.
Two USB ports are provided, one for a USB memory device and one for linking to a PC. Commercially available USB memory devices may be used for direct capture of data. With a 512M device, users can capture data for up to 269 days (10 channels, 1 second sampling rate). An optional battery pack is available for use where mains power is unavailable. The battery pack allows up to 9 hours of operation.
All the GL800's functions can be accessed through the easy-to-use keypad and LCD screen. Single touch buttons for such tasks as display mode, setup and logging start/stop negate the need for complicated menu trees. The bright easy-to-read 7.4 colour LCD screen makes it even easier to review measurement settings, measured waveforms and digital values.
The GL800 is bundled with PC application software that enables measurements directly to a PC. In addition to waveform monitoring, this software provides other useful functions such as direct writing of data to an Excel file and report creation. The software also provides a Help display function for enhanced usability.
