General Description

The Model 18 has eight independent multi-purpose sensor inputs. Virtually any cryogenic temperature sensor from any manufacturer can be selected by a single setting of the front panel. Custom or specially calibrated sensors require only a simple setup procedure. In addition to its high accuracy/performance and low noise design, unique features include: Internal Data Logging, Ethernet Connectivity, a large easy to read display and extensive utility software.

Ethernet connectivity adds a new dimension of utility to these monitors. In both industrial and laboratory applications, Ethernet is more reliable and easier to use compared to other communication standards. Furthermore, it is essential to remote, distributed sensor or Local Area Network based systems.

All eight input channels are independent and each can be individually configured to support any sensor types. Inputs are NOT multiplexed.

The front panel consists of a large, bright Vacuum Fluorescent display and a 5-key keypad. Most features and functions can be accessed via this simple and intuitive menu driven interface. All eight temperature readings are displayed in a 2 x 4 matrix.

The Model 18 connects directly to any 10/100 Base-T Ethernet Local-Area-Network or directly to any PC. Simple connection to any existing Local Area Network allows stable, precise, cost-effective measurements in laboratory or industrial environments as well as in remote, distributed data acquisition systems.

Using the Ethernet HTTP protocol, the monitor’s embedded web server allows the instrument to be viewed and configured from any web browser.

Using the SMTP protocol, the monitor will send an e-mail based on selected alarm conditions. The E-mail is completely configured by using the web page interface.

The TCP/IP data port server brings fast Ethernet connectivity to all common data acquisition software programs including LabView™. TCP/IP protocol is used to implement a text based SCPI compatible command language.
