Data Logging Software GA10

Monitors and records data from a variety of instruments via networks

GA10 is PC-based data logging application software for monitoring and recording by connecting devices distributed in a factory or on the premises via Ethernet network. The centralization of PCs will improve the efficiency of monitoring and recording operations and reduce the burden.

New!  AI supports detecting predictive abnormality sign of equipment.
Automatically detects and notifies the “anomalies” that are signs of abnormalities. You can prevent production stoppage due to unanticipated equipment failure, and operate the factory stably.
>> Please refer to the related page, AI Product Solutions.

Factory energy visualization function has been added.
By adding the integration display function, the entire energy in the factory can be visualized and operation costs can be reduced through comprehensive monitoring.

Benefits of GA10 introduction:

  • Collecting data can be prepared in 3 steps
  • Unified monitoring using custom screens tailored to uses
  • Cost-savings through demand monitoring


► Collect scattered data

All the data is acquired by connecting the various devices installed in a factory to an Ethernet network.

Using AI to monitor for anomaly sign  New!

► Preventing production stoppage due to unanticipated equipment failure, and operate the factory stably

AI can learn what normal operating data “looks like” by acquiring measured data on the GA10 from Sushi Sensor, recorders, loggers, and other devices implemented to the production equipment. This enables it to identify anomaly data and notify the user. Anomaly Detection looks at correlations among multiple data to make determinations, and can be utilized to catch signs of equipment abnormalities that are difficult for humans to discern.

Using AI to monitor for anomaly sign


► Predict the future with AI

GA10 uses acquired data to predict future data, and display predicted future waveforms along with real-time data on the trend screen. You can also set alarms against predicted data to detect problems in advance when they occur in the future so you can deal with them beforehand.
