GL840 OFFERED IN TWO MODELS:

MULTI-INPUT MODEL AND WITHSTAND-VOLTAGE MODEL

 
GRAPHTEC MIDI DATA LOGGER GL840-M MULTI-INPUT MODEL, AND GL840-WV HIGH VOLTAGE WITHSTAND MODEL
 

3-INPUT SYSTEMS ENABLE TO MEASURE VARIOUS SIGNALS

Type 1: Multifunction universal analog input ports

Contains a highly isolated input channel system which ensures that signals are not corrupted by noise from other channels.  GL840's inputs are suitable for combined measurements from voltage, temperature, humidity, logic, and pulse signals.  Standard configuration has 20 analog input channels.  Unit is expandable of up to 200 channels by adding optional 20 channel extension terminal base units (B-566) and input terminal blocks (B-564 or B-565).

Q: How do you configure the expansion blocks on the GL840 series?

There are several components that are required to set up the expansion terminal blocks for the GL840 models. Each model will require one expansion cable to connect the first expansion terminal base which would initially connect the first 20 channel block with the main instrument. The original 20 channel block from the main unit will snap out of the body, and the corresponding 20 channel block will then snap on to the first extension terminal base. This cable can now be either 1.6 ft (50cm) or 6.5 ft (2 meter) long. Thereafter, depending upon how many channels you will need to configure, each corresponding extension terminal base (B-566) will add additional 20 channel blocks either via a cable or directly daisy-chaining on to each other. Either the B-564 20 channel terminal block for the GL840-M or the B-565 20 channel terminal block for the withstand model GL840-WV can be used as the terminal block mixed together on the series of channel blocks.

 

Q: What are the key advantages for using the GL840-WV, and which applications do you recommend for the GL840-WV?

The key advantage of the GL840-WV model is in the precision accuracy of its measurement and its capability to withstand higher voltage requirements. Voltage accuracy on DC input is ±0.05% of full scale (+10µV), and average accuracy for thermocouple measurement increases by anywhere from 0.5˚C to 1.7˚C depending upon the range and the type of your typical thermocouple wires. (please review the specification below to review your specified range) The other key advantage is in its ability to withstand up to 300Vp-p channel-to-ground and 600Vp-p in between channels with 2300Vrms AC (for 1 minute) channel-to-ground. This provides the monitoring ability to connect series stacked cells for power batteries up to 300V with no issues as a viable monitoring tool for battery efficiency and performance. Solar panel networks and other power grid networks can now be monitored with this cost-efficient monitoring tool.

Offers longer cable for the input terminals

Input terminal blocks can be connected directly (in daisy chain), or using the B-565 cable(s). This allows the input terminals to be placed in separate locations according to the need of the application.  The input terminal unit and the GL840 main body can be extended by using an extended connections cable.

* If the signal is affected by noise, it may be required to use a slower sampling.

GRAPHTEC MIDI DATA LOGGER GL840 OFFERS LONGER CABLE FOR THE INPUT TERMINALS

Type 2: GS digital sensors

The GL840 multi-channel datalogger allows users to switch sensors and terminals for measuring various signals.  Digital sensors and input terminal/adapters for the GL100 connects to the GL840 directly.  Available sensors/terminals to measure various signals with the GL840 data loggers are:
