Sensaphone 1800

(Ideal for monitoring water treatment facilities and agricultural environments)

The Sensaphone 1800 provides a significant step up over the 800. While performing all of the functions of the 800, the 1800 comes in a sealed, weatherproof, lockable enclosure, making it suitable for harsh or corrosive environments.

Voice phone calls are customized, so that users can hear each alarm described in detail and in their own voice. The 1800 is perfect for ultra-low freezer monitoring all the way down to -85° C. Also built into the 1800 is a system that identifies who responds to any alarm phone call, and tracks respondents with a history log.

The 1800 includes an output relay so that a local device can be switched on when an alarm occurs, as well as a line-seizure feature. LEDs on the face of the 1800 afford local indication of alarm and status conditions. An additional input type, 4-20mA, not supported in the 800, is available in the 1800.

In addition to the extra channels (8), the 1800 provides a few more unique features, not available in the 400, 800, or 1400. The 1800 not only makes voice phone calls, but can send text messages to cell phones and alphanumeric pagers.

50ft. of 22-gauge shielded wire for connecting sensors to your sensaphone.
External Microphone Attachment
Product # FGD-0057
Provides listen-in and/or high sound alarm capability at a remote location away from your Sensaphone. Comes with 25 feet of wire.
Surge Suppressor for Power and Phone
Product # FGD-0067
The surge suppressor offers complete AC and phone line surge suppression for your Sensaphone and other electronic devices. The compact housing weighs less than 4 ounces. The retractable plug prevents scratching of expensive portable electronics. A set of RJ11 telephone line suppression jacks protect dialup and voice/modem lines. The suppressor offers 2 total outlets in a space saving direct plug-in format and diagnostic LEDs to warn of wiring problems and suppressor damage. $50,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance (USA & Canada Only).


Multi-Point Wireless I/O
Product # FGD-0205
The multi-point wireless I/O system is ideal if you need to connect one or two dry contacts and/or a 4-20mA transducer to a Sensaphone that is too far (or too expensive) to run cable. The system will replicate these sensors up to a distance of 600′ indoors or up to 4 miles line of site (flat terrain, raised antennas). The system includes a matched 1 Watt 900MHz transmitter and receiver. Two 24V power supplies and omnidirectional antennas are included. Built-in leds indicate RF link and dry contact status.


J Type Thermocouple/4-20mA Converter
Product # FGD-0220
The thermocouple to 4-20mA converter is useful when monitoring very high or very low temperatures that can not be monitored with a standard Sensaphone temperature sensor. Thermocouples are available in a variety of packages that may be perfectly suited to your measuring application. Each thermocouple input module provides a single channel of thermocouple input which is filtered, isolated, amplified, linearized and converted to a 4-20mA output. Isolation is provided by transformer coupling, using a proprietary technique to suppress transmission of common mode spikes or surges. The modules have excellent stability over time and do not require recalibration.


Bluetooth Cell Phone Interface
Product # FGD-0230
The XLink allows your Sensaphone to dial and receive calls using any cell phone with Bluetooth technology. For example, suppose land-line telephone service was unavailable at the Sensaphone's location. By using the XLink you can provide telephone service to your Sensaphone by locating a cell phone next to the device. The XLink will send all incoming calls to the Sensaphone and when the Sensaphone needs to dial out the call will be seamlessly completed through the cell phone. The XLink is a wireless (Bluetooth) link between your Sensaphone and a cellular phone. This can be a cost-effective option considering that many cellular providers offer inexpensive options to add another phone. Perfect for access where a land line simply isn't available, the XLink is a must.
