Recommended power source for each combination of modules are listed below

Measurement items Input module Built-in Alkaline Battery USB Cable Connection
Temp. & Humidity GS-TH B A
Acceleration & Temp. GS-3AT B A
4ch, Voltage or Temp GS-4VT C A
4ch, Temp. (Thermistor) GS-4TSR B A
Illuminance & UV GS-LXUV B A
Carbon dioxide (CO2) GS-CO2 D A
AC Current & Power GS-DPA-AC B A
Temp./Humidity + CO2 GS-DPA(*1) + GS-TH + GS-CO2 B A
Temp./Humidity + Illuminance/UV GS-DPA(*1) + GS-TH + GS-LXUV B A
CO2 + Illuminance/UV GS-DPA(*1) + GS-CO2 + GS-LXUV D A

* : The GS-DPA listed is a measurement that uses the branch adapter for GS.

A: Full operation

B: This works on alkaline batteries.

C: This works on alkaline batteries, but power consumption is relatively high, the operating time will be shorter.

D: Cannot be used as a power source

 

DC current consumption is as follows.  When driving in the batteries, use as a reference of battery consumption.

GL100 Recommended Power Sources For Each Combination of Modules.png

* The above value is the average value of the body + sensor.

* There is no change in consumption current by the sampling rate.

* The consumption current increases up to about 20 mA while accessing the SD card.

* When the CO2 sensor is used, the consumption current increases periodically (about two-second intervals) about 500 mA.

 

Recommended power source for the sensor module

Measurement items Input module Driven by battery (*2) Powered by USB (*4)
Temp. & Humidity GS-TH Available Available
Acceleration & Temp. GS-3AT Available Available
4ch, Voltage or Temp GS-4VT (*3) Available
4ch, Temp. (Thermistor) GS-4TSR Available Available
Illuminance & UV GS-LXUV Available Available
Carbon dioxide (CO2) GS-CO2 N/A Available
AC Current & Power GS-DPA-AC Available Available
Temp./Humidity + CO2 GS-DPA(*1) + GS-TH + GS-CO2 N/A Available
Temp./Humidity + Illuminance/UV GS-DPA(*1) + GS-TH + GS-LXUV Available Available
CO2 + Illuminance/UV GS-DPA(*1) + GS-CO2 + GS-LXUV N/A Available

Note:

*1: GS-DPA (Dual Port Adapter) is used for connecting two sensors.

*2: When GL100 is driven by the USB bus-power, power is automatically switched to battery after USB bus-power is down. If the capacity of the battery is low, the power of GL100 may be turned off. The battery is able to use as an auxiliary power of a power failure of the USB bus-power. In this case, it is recommended to install new battery to GL100.

*3: It is able to drive by battery. In this case, an operating time will be shorter because power consumption is relatively high.

*4: When AC adapter for the USB device is used, it is recommended to have power capacity of the 200mA except to use the GS-CO2 sensor. The power capacity of the 1A is required for using the GS-CO2 sensor.

FUNCTIONS OF EMAIL

The GL100-WL is able to transferring email and receiving email. The warning and other messages are transferred from the GL100-WL. The command of simple control for the GL100-WL can be received.  You do not need to sensitive for the measured values at all times because you are able to have the better understanding of the situation by receiving email from the GL100.

  • Warning message for the captured data (When the alarm occurs, message is sent via email.)
  • Summary data (Sending summary data in specified period that are the current value, value of maximum, minimum, and average.)
  • Low battery warning (If the level of dry cell is low, message is sent.)
  • Confirmation of setting change (When the settings has been changed, message is sent.)

 

You can change simple setting using the software for the smart drive. The simple setting is the start/stop, sampling and alarm. (The setting change commands are transferred using the email function.).

  • Setting of capture condition in the GL100 can be changed by receiving command by email.
  • Setting change may be delayed. It varies by condition of communication for the email.
