X-418™ | Web-Enabled, Multi-Function 8-Channel Analog Input Module
The X-418 features 8 analog-to-digital inputs and a built-in web-server for remote access and monitoring anywhere in the world!
Unlimited Possibilities for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)
The X-418™ is a fully-featured, Ethernet module with an 8-channel, 16-bit, analog data acquisition system. Configure each channel as a single-ended or differential input.
Monitor and log sensors connected to the analog inputs using the X-418's intuitive web interface.
It can be controlled and/or monitored over any TCP/IP network including private networks, IP-based industrial control networks, and the Internet.
8 Analog Inputs (Multi-Function)
Ranges: ±1.28V, ±2.56V, ±5.12V, ±10.24V, 4-20mA
The X-418 features an eight-channel, 16-bit, analog data acquisition system. Each channel is configurable for single-ended or differential inputs.
Programmable voltage ranges include; ±1.28V, ±2.56V, ±5.12V, and ±10.24V. Inputs 1-4 can be configured for 4-20mA operation.
The 4-20mA mode enables a precision internal shunt resistor and configures the A/D for ±5V operation.
Monitor industrial sensors, wind direction sensors, pyranometers, pressure transducers, and much more.
Peer-to-Peer Communication (P2P)
Monitor and Control up to 64 I/O
The X-418 supports peer-to-peer communication between ControlByWeb modules. It communicates with up to 32 modules and allows you to monitor and control up to 64 I/O points. The X-418 can communicate with all ControlByWeb devices but offers instantaneous messaging between X-400 Series products, this means that the X-418 can monitor and control I/O on other X-400 Series products as if it was directly connected to the module.
The X-418's built-in interface allows you to create custom "Tasks" for simple and advanced control logic.
Easily create tasks based on inputs or outputs’ status. Create up to three actions for each task providing you with the ultimate control and monitoring solution for your application!
Create up to 50 Scheduled, 50 Conditional, and 20 Override Schedules.
The X-418 also has a built-in BASIC interpreter for more advanced or custom applications not achievable through the Task Builder system.
Conditional tasks are triggered depending on an input's or output's status.
Conditional tasks are commonly used for creating email/text alerts, controlling outputs, and logging.
Scheduled tasks perform actions at preset times on specific days.
Scheduled tasks are commonly used to log I/O data at a specified time, or to control digital outputs.
The X-418 contains a BASIC script interpreter. This allows you to create scripts that calculate analog parameters or create advanced control logic.
The X-418 offers the ability to log a variety of data points such as local and remote I/O, registers, and voltage. Log entries can be made at preset intervals, scheduled times, triggered by I/O changes or logic events.
Schedule a daily log file to be sent via email or uploaded via FTP server.
Graph the current log file and view the I/O's status over time.
Other Advanced Features
The X-418 has more advanced features such as the ability to initiate a connection to remote servers, BASIC programming, admin/manager/user permissions, etc.
The X-418 supports HTTPS connections, can send encrypted emails, can communicate with remote devices using TLS.
Monitor and Control Page
Users access the X-418 through a built-in web page, called the Control Page. The Control Page can be customized by administrators.
Use the Control Page to:
- Control (On, Off, or Pulse):
- Digital Outputs
- Monitor status of:
- Digital Inputs
- Analog inputs
- 1-Wire sensors
Optionally, the Control Page can be password protected for additional security.
The X-418 supports three types of users that provide different levels of access to the module's settings and Control pages. Each user type has a unique password and is configured by the administrator in the setup pages.
Full access to all Settings, Tasks, and Control Page.
Access to Scheduled Tasks and Control Page.
Access to Control Page only.
All of these features make the X-418 the ultimate solution for monitoring and data acquisition!
Our ControlByWeb Cloud makes accessing your data simple and secure without any of the drawbacks of cloud dependency. It provides access to our cellular devices and works with any 400 series devices (X-400, X-405, X-410, etc.) and Wi-Fi modules (see compatible devices).
The cloud is included at no additional cost with a X-400C cellular data plan and provides remote access and enhances setup and commissioning.
With the cloud you can manage multiple locations and many devices with a single login, create parent-child account hierarchy that makes data organization easy, and log data in the cloud for easier access and easy download.
Here’s what the ControlByWeb Cloud does for you:
- Easier Access
- Single Password Authentication
- Data Logging
- Parent-Child Hierarchy
- Logic Stays on the Device, Not the Cloud
- Connect Unlimited Endpoints
- Layered Security
- Connect Incompatible Devices
