GigaLog S is a data logger for
Gbytes of data using miniSD memory cards.
With GigaLog S any embedded system can log its data easily, for a very long period, and readable by a PC.
GigaLog S automatically recognizes
miniSD memory cards, and creates files to store the data into
it. When switching power on, or changing the memory card, new
data will be appended to the files. Stored data can be read on
a PC using a simple miniSD adapter. The memory card appears as
a removable disk to the PC. All data from the RS232 is in a single
file, analog data in another file on the disk.
You may also upload stored data from the board by USB or RS232 into a file on the PC.
GigaLog S is available as board
or in a housing to be mounted on a DIN rail.
GigaLog S is also available with a graphic LCD to show rescend data.
Storing data from analog
or digital inputs
Gigalog S has 16 single-ended inputs. Couples of inputs can be used as differential inputs. Each input can be configured as analog, digital, or counter. Gigalog samples these inputs regularly and stores them on the disk in a file.
Storing incoming data
All data coming in from one of the two serial RS232 interface can be stored on the disk in a file. A data frame from the RS232 is any consecutive data until there is a gap of at least 0.5 seconds. GigaLog can be configured to add a time stamp (yyyy:mm:dd hh:mm:ss) in front and/or at the end of a data frame.
GigaLog S can be completely controlled by a modem: Verify state, change configuration, disk handling, upload logged data. Each input has a min and a max threshold. When the input violates a threshold, an alarm occurs. An alarm may toggle a relay, write a message into a disk file, call a centre using a phone, or send an SMS, using a GSM modem. You may define a command macro, that calls a centre, or sends an SMS each hour, day, or once a week.
Transfer data to an Internet
GigaLog S can place its data directly on an Internet server by FTP using a special modem. They can be placed into a MySql database.
You may add more inputs to the GigaLog S data logger using Remote Acquisition modules. These Modules are frequently used in industries, and they come from several suppliers. AdvantechÆ ADAM-4000, AdlinkÆ NµDAM-6000 ICPÆ I-7000, eDAM-8000. Use the RS2 port of the GigaLog S board to create a RS485 network. The GigaLog S is the master of the network. You may connect up to 9 slaves to GigaLog S. Other GigaLog S board can also be connected as slave modules. GigaLog S handles up to 100 inputs, a0 to a15 are on the board, a16 to a99 are remote. You may configure for all inputs the expression to calculate the engineering value from the raw value before storing it to the memory card. All inputs can be displayed on the LCD, and on the optional graphical LCD.
A graphic display can be connected to GigaLog S. The display replaces the alpha numeric display.
320 x 240 Pixel, 5.7 inch. Colour, Technology TFT, Backlight, Touch panel.
The display shows 15 channels on 3 pages, 5 channels per page.
You may change the number of channels,
channels per page, and the length of each period. The data for
the display is stored independent of the data logged on the memory
card. The data for the display will be lost when power is switched
You may select on the bottom menu the period to display
The upper menu displays a state line or the channels of the page. Channels are not equal to inputs. You may assign any input to a channel. The button of a channel is in its colour, and displays its name. Clicking on the button of a channel brings the channel into the foreground and its y-axe is displayed. Clicking on >> changes the page and displays other channels.
Show all internal 16, and or up
to 100 inputs as bar graphs in real time.
Show your installation with inputs
in bar graphs. Put your machine as image into the background.
The bar graphs in the foreground display the actual state of the
Example of a photovoltaic system: Three panels with their charge current in bar graphs. The charge state of the batteries. Three consumers currents.
Create your own mobile elements like: valve closed, open, motor stop, slow backward, fast forward.
GigaLog S completely
programmable in C
To customise the board, you may write your own firmware in C, and download it into GigaLog.
Delivered with the board: C compiler, library for the board, firmware source, downloader.
