SMARTDAC+ GX/GP Series Paperless Recorders
Recorders are used on production lines and by R&D personnel in various industries to acquire, display, and record data such as temperature, voltage, current, flow rate, and pressure. Today, Yokogawa is one of the world's top suppliers of recorders.
A shift from paper recording systems to digital recording systems is presently underway, and these digital devices are often used on networks. There is also an increased demand for touch-panel user interfaces like those found on mobile devices and the capability to centrally handle a larger number of inputs from devices spread out over a wide area. To accommodate such needs, Yokogawa announced the release of its GX and GP series recorders in October 2012.
With the functions that are included under release 2, the GX and GP series recorders now comply with the FDA 21 CFR Part 11 that are widely followed within the pharmaceutical industry, are capable of handling an even larger number of device inputs, and are easier to use.
