Outdated processes lead to information loss, project delays, and other operation costs. Even today, in many factories, liquid analyzers are directly connected to chart recorders, with engineers using paper logbooks to maintain registration, reporting, and traceability.
SENSTATION is a proven concept that provides a scalable integrated liquid measurement solution by combining SENCOM™ SMART sensors with a SMART data logger and SMARTDAC+ modular data-acquisition system.
With SENSTATION, the unique capabilities of Yokogawa's SMART datalogger, SMARTDAC+, and the SMART digital SENCOM™ sensors are combined to create one unique solution to improve factory efficiency and profitability by improving the traceability and reporting functionality and by simplifying maintenance and calibration. Depending on the selected HMI, two to sixteen units can be monitored and connected.

Features & Benefits
Intuitive display for improved operability
The SMARTDAC+'s customized display with touchscreen and swipe provides a detailed, real-time overview of all connected sensors. All data can be reviewed remotely from a PC, laptop, or tablet, and notifications are sent via email from individual measurements if an error occurs or maintenance is needed.
Reliable design compliant with safety standards
The GX10 has a front panel mounting to comply with IEC529-IP65, and all SENCOM™ sensors are CE compliant with IECEx, ATEX, FM, CSA, TIIS compliant (pending). In addition, the K8S connector (IP67) can be used for installations in heavy industrial environments, and digital signals are reliably transferred without disturbance from external sources.
Secure data storage
SENSTATION features a large internal memory of 400MB (on FX1000) or 500MB (on GX10/GX20) with a CF card up to 2GB (option on FX1000) or SD card up to 32GB (option on GX10/GX20). Other data features include binary data storage, a network that enables data redundancy, and an optional USB interface.
Simplified reporting and calibration
SENSTATION has automatic reporting capabilities with reports exportable to Excel, PDF, or CSV files. In addition, SENCOM™ digital pH sensors can be calibrated in the laboratory, simplifying maintenance.
This is a small example of a water treatment plant. We can install digital SMART sensors in different installation locations throughout the process, and link all of the sensors information to be gathered into one the SmartDac+ at one convenient location. This allows for reduction in installation costs and there are not analyzers at each measurement location. Other examples of potential industries and applications that could benefit from SENSTATION are:
- Food and Beverage
- Metal Treatment
- Industrial laundry
- Effluent Treatment
- Scrubber monitoring
SMARTDAC+ GX10/GX20 is a multi-point touch screen recorder that provides intuitive, human-centric design, web-enabled functionality, and scalable architecture. The GX20 also supports 920 MHz band wireless communication.
FieldMate v3 is a comprehensive PC based tool that improves productivity for technicians during the configuration, commissioning, and troubleshooting of field devices.
By using SMART sensors, calibration data is stored within the sensor’s memory chip. Calibration data can be downloaded or uploaded to and from the SENCOM™ sensor and received HMI. The software allows the operator to monitor pH/ORP sensor performance, calibrate and configure various parameters.
Reusable SMART adapter, requiring only the analog sensor to be disposed of when it reaches the end of its lifetime. With the SENCOM 4.0 platform, Yokogawa delivers reduced costs and waste while contributing to its long-term business goals of a sustainable future for all.
