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.)
