GENNECT One has the power to bring the capabilities of multiple measuring instruments together.
View data from multiple instruments on a single graph in real time. Automatically download measurement files from individual instruments and save them in a single folder. Display instruments’ screens in GENNECT One and control them remotely.
In short, GENNECT One lets you control multiple instruments as if you were controlling a single instrument. Beyond a doubt, your measurement capabilities will take a step forward.
More and more capable in the field.
*The name GENNECT was coined from the Japanese word for “field” (genba) and the English word connect.
Group data together on a single graph in real time
“I want to view measurement data from multiple instruments used in a monitoring and testing application in real time.”
Until now, it’s been impossible to view data in real time.
- Users had to go each measurement site in order to collect data.
- Measurement data had to be converted due to use of different formats.
- Each set of measurement data used a different time axis.
GENNECT One collects measurement data regularly (at the set logging interval) from LAN-connected instruments. This data can be displayed immediately on a graph.
This functionality isn’t limited to a single instrument. You can display measurement data collected from multiple instruments on a single graph. You can even group completely different measured values, for example power measurements from a power meter and temperature and flow rate measurements from a data logger, on a single graph in real time.
The benefits of this approach compared to conventional measurement methods are clear.
Centralize management of measurement files
“It’s not practical to search through large numbers of measurement files for the file I need.”
Instruments save logging data and detailed waveform data generated when trigger conditions are met to their internal memory. Making measurement at numerous sites and making repeated measurements generates an enormous number of measurement files.
At this point, you’ll end up spending a lot of time managing measurement files. For example:
- You won’t be able to organize them all.
- You won’t be able to keep track of where things were saved.
- It will take a significant amount of time to search for past measurement files.
Measurement files generated by individual instruments are automatically sent to GENNECT One and saved. A key feature of GENNECT One is its ability to group together these measurement files in a single data list so that they can be managed.
- Divide files and save them as groups (folders)
- Enter a title, search tags, and remarks for each measurement file.
- Refine your searches using keywords and search tags.
You’ll be able to manage important measurement files carefully and precisely.
Avoid the need to visit measurement sites
“Visiting measurement sites is a waste of time.”
Measurement sites are often located some distance away or in a different building, and gaining access facilities such as clean rooms may involve time-consuming procedures. If you realize that an instrument was configured incorrectly when you view its measurement data, you’ll have to make a series of visits to the site.
This approach undermines progress in measurement and testing.
GENNECT One is more than just an application for viewing measurement data. You can also control (LAN-connected) instruments that are installed in remote locations. In other words, if you look at a measurement file and decide that the instrument’s settings need to be changed, you can do so without taking the time to visit the measurement site and instead spend your time getting on with the measurement process.
There’s no need to configure complex settings. You just need for the computer on which you installed GENNECT One to be on the same LAN as the instruments you wish to control.
Because Hioki instruments are intelligent
The instruments that connect to GENNECT One are Hioki instruments whose capabilities have been refined at an array of measurement sites. They can do more than perform high-precision measurement; they also excel in safety and durability. More than that, connectivity requires instruments with a LAN port. Each instrument possesses capabilities on par with those of a high-precision computer. It’s precisely because Hioki instruments are so intelligent that they can be used to build measurement systems like this.

*2 When using with the PQ3198, measurement must be stopped in order to acquire the current day’s measurement file.
*3 GENNECT One only supports Internet Explorer 11 with Java installed (because it uses a Java applet).
*4 Importing the data from PQ3100 is supported only via LAN communication.
