Versatile data acquisition solution with Bluetooth support

27 January 2015

Yokogawa Electric Corporation has introduced the SMARTDAC+ GM data acquisition system which is said to offer improvements to operational efficiency owing to its modular design, which facilitates the mounting and removal of modules. 

The SMARTDAC+ GM system also supports Bluetooth wireless communications for use with handheld mobile devices. It is expected to comply with 21 CFR Part 11 regulations in 2015. 

Most data acquisition systems will utilise a variety of modules to acquire a wide range of data. Historically, many of these systems have been equipped with a base plate for the mounting of modules. Today users prefer designs that allow the easy mounting and removal of modules.

Modern data acquisition systems can be classified into two types – those that are equipped with a monitor, and those that are not. In the latter case, the systems must be hooked up to a PC and operated using its screen and keyboard. The SMARTDAC+ GM modular data acquisition system, with modular I/O allows users to scale their data acquisition system based on their process requirement, with the ability to upgrade as requirements change. 

Bluetooth connection allows wireless communication with mobile devices. 

Applications for the device are said to 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.
