The OPC-UA server function lets you use data measured by the GA10 on SCADA and other upstream database systems.
If recording at the same interval as the scan interval, you can go all the way back to recording start. Otherwise, you can only go back to the last 3600 points.
For general use, 2 GB. If using the report printing function, increase this according to the number of recording tags and recording interval. See the general specifications for details.
With a 32-bit OS, the report printing function has a limited recording duration and number of recording tags. We recommend a 64-bit OS for this instrument. See the general specifications for details.
Yes, by using the viewer (report printing option not required). However, you cannot customize the layout.
No. This is not supported because the times and acquisition timings differ between instruments.

You can use this to view GA10 data from another PC. Operation is available using the same screen as the GA10.
It automatically prints trends and lets you customize their layouts. Depending on the settings, it can output to Excel or PDF.
If you type a keyword in an Excel cell, it is automatically replaced with GA10 data. Ex.) To use the instantaneous value of Tag0001 in a project called "Test", type: =DLGDDE|'Test'!tag0001
