8/16-channel smart sensor interface | Model 7418/7419

Model 7418 8/16-channel smart sensor interface
  • Measures thermocouple, RTD, strain gage, voltage, 4-20 mA, thermistor, and resistance
  • 8 or 16 sensor channels with differential inputs
  • Provides excitation to passive sensors
  • Pulsed sensor excitation minimizes sensor self-heating
  • Cold-junction compensation for thermocouples
  • Each channel configurable for any supported sensor type
  • Fully electronic calibration


Sensoray models 7418 and 7419 offer a cost-effective way to acquire sensor data for any STD bus system. They feature 16-bit resolution from 8 or 16 channels, each individually programmable for a different sensor type. Analog-to-digital conversion is performed in under 22 milliseconds, providing a 45 channel per second scan rate.

The 7418/19 adapter boards plug directly into any STD bus computer. Linearization, calibration, and sensitivity are software programmable, eliminating trim potentiometers and the need for board access. Sensor field wiring is accomplished with a 40-conductor flat cable and a remotely mountable screw-termination board (either Model 7409TB or Model 7409TDIN with DIN-rail mounting hardware).

Model 7418 / 7419 application



Models 7418 and 7419 automatically self-calibrate by measuring internal precision references. Reference data is stored in EEPROM so the adapter board may be easily interchanged. Signal conditioning is provided for thermistors, RTDs, thermocouples, strain and pressure, resistance and voltage inputs. Standard correction for nonlinear sensors is built in. Custom compensation can be downloaded.


A pulsed constant-voltage source is provided for strain and pressure sensors. A pulsed constant-current source is provided for resistive sensors. Lead loss errors from RDSs, thermistors, and resistors are eliminated with the use of a four-wire circuit.

An on-board microprocessor continually scans the active sensor channels. Each channel is amplified, digitized, filtered, converted to engineering units, and stored in on-board memory. This process is independent of host CPU activity.
