New paperless recorder

Yokogawa has announced the launch of their new SmartDAC+ GX and GP series paperless recorders, which comply with the FDA 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines, and accommodate an increased number of inputs. The FDA 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines were issued in 1997, and stipulate what is required for electronic records and electronic signatures to have the same validity as paper-based records and signatures. With release 2, the GX and GP series recorders now comply with these guidelines for use in production operations.

In addition the new units can be used with up to six expansion units, each of which can accommodate up to 60 inputs. Including direct inputs, this gives each recorder the ability to handle a combined total of up to 450 inputs. The expansion units can be located at up to 100m from the recorder, so enabling reduced cabling costs for satellite operations.

The recorder also is available with an optional graphic display, enabling the unit to operate as a process display unit or console panel, in addition to its main data recording function.
