For test applications with data logging requirements, the MX100 scales from four to 1200 channels. It streams, records, displays, and reports with no programming required.
When combined with Yokogawa's turnkey PC software, the MX100's multi-channel capability and high isolation voltage offers the ultimate in measurement power.
The table below provides reference information on the maximum number of measurable channels in relevant measurement intervals (when using Yokogawa's proprietary software):
|Measurement interval||Maximum number of measurable channels||Measurable objects||PC software||Number of necessary modules (example)|
|MX100 Standard software||MXLOGGER||Main Module (MX100)||Four-channel High-speed Universal Input Module (MX110-UNV-H04)||Ten-channel Medium-speed Universal Input Module (MX110-UNV-M10)|

The relationship between measurement intervals and the number of channels largely depends on the performance of the PC. The actual performance may differ from that shown in the table.
Three types of measurement intervals can be used in a single system in various combinations. Measurement intervals are specified for each module. It is also possible to set different types of input modules to the same measurement interval or to set the same type of input modules to different measurement intervals. Twelve measurement intervals are available as userselectable options: 10 ms, 50 ms, 100 ms, 200 ms, 500 ms, 1 s, 2 s, 5 s, 10 s, 20 s, 30 s and 60 s. Please note, however, that measurement intervals of 10/50 ms cannot be set to the Medium-speed Universal Input Module (MX110-UNV-M10).

The window shows measurement values by measurement intervals. Measurement can be performed while confirming rapidly-changing signals and slowly-changing signals simultaneously.

B: Measurement of sine waves at 8 Hz with a measurement interval of 10 ms
C: Measurement of sine waves at 1 Hz with a measurement interval of 50 ms
Reinforced (double) insulation has been provided between the input terminals and the case to achieve a high withstand voltage of 600 Vrms/VDC (continuous). As shown below, each battery voltage can be measured even if the batteries are stacked to increase common-mode voltages.
MX input modules employ integrating A/D converters with superior noise rejection performance. In particular, the MX110-UNV-H04 Four-Channel High-Speed Universal Input Module incorporates an integrating A/D converter for each input channel, thereby exhibiting strong noise rejection performance in high-speed measurement. Moreover, the digital filtering function is effective on noises that cannot be fully rejected even with integrating A/D converters. Time constants can be selected from 5 to 100 measurement interval times. Therefore, filtering can be applied according to the noise to be rejected.
Example of Noise Rejection
When the noise source in the left figure was applied to the MX, the result in the right figure was obtained. High-speed measurement can be stably performed even in noisy environments.
|Noise source applied to the MX
A noise signal was applied between H and L (in normal mode).

|Connection between a single MX unit and a single PC|
DC voltageThermocuple, RTD, Digital input (mixed input possible)
Setting up the System
The MX and PC are connected via a hub and a straight Ethernet cable.
Alternatively, they can be connected using a cross cable alone, without using the hub.
In a one-to-one connection, the MX100 standard software included with the main module facilitates easy building of data acquisition environments.
|Example of a system
with multiple MX units
Setting up the System
The MX units and the PC are connected by means of a hub and straight Ethernet cables.
Acquisition of data from multiple MX units is well-supported by Yokogawa's software "MXLOGGER" (optional). MXLOGGER enables data acquisitions of up to 20 MX units (one unit has inputs of up to 60 channels, or 1,200 channels on 20 units).
Please note that the shortest measurement interval of MXLOGGER depends on the system's total number of channels and the PC's performance.
If users wish to create their own data acquisition software, there is no limit to the number of MX units that can be integrated with a single PC software element. Please note, however, that if conditions with heavy loads (such as short measurement intervals with many units) are set to the PC and its software, data will not be acquired in time and some data may be lost.

This software is used to connect a single MX unit for performing data acquisition (it is not possible to connect multiple MX units). It includes three software elements: the integration monitor, viewer, and calibration.
Integration Monitor Software
This software performs real-time monitoring and logging of measured data. It consists of six menus: Monitor Window, Detailed Display Setting, Channel Setting, Acquisition Condition, System Setting, and Connection/disconnection.
This window is used to monitor measured data in real-time. It enables waveform displays and digital displays.
This menu is used to set various conditions (such as measurement intervals/data save intervals, measurement start/end conditions, or file name designation) for data acquisitions.
|Detailed Display Setting
This menu is used to set data display states (such as waveform colors) in the monitor window.
This menu is used to decide module configurations, etc. Module configurations are shown in easily understood diagrams.
This menu is used to enter individual settings (such as range settings) for each input channel or to set computation channels (such as the input of computing equations).
|Connection/Disconnection (Easy to Set Up)
The connected MX100 is identified automatically. Once connection setting information is provided, it will be retained. When the system restarts, the MX100 will be connected automatically without making network settings.
This software is intended to re-display saved data. It enables waveform displays, digital displays, cursor displays, interval arithmetic, and other functions.
This software is intended to efficiently carry out the calibration of universal input modules.
MXLOGGER is used to connect multiple MX units (up to 20 units) for data acquisition (one MX unit can also be connected). It consists of software elements (setting, logger (for saving data), monitor, and viewer) and the monitor server. The monitor server function is used to enable connections with Yokogawa's data logging software, "GA10." It is effective when combining MX units with Yokogawa's data acquisition equipment such as DARWIN and DAQSTATION.
If users wish to create their own data acquisition software, please use this API. The API consists of a suite of functions to communicate with MX100/DARWIN. The suite of functions contains DLL (dynamic link library). API makes it possible to create data acquisition software dedicated to the MX, or data acquisition software combining the MX and DARWIN, or data acquisition software dedicated to DARWIN. Three languages (Visual C, Visual C++, and Visual Basic) are supported.
