The SDM-INT8 outputs timing data to a Campbell Scientific datalogger. The datalogger can process the timing data to calculate RPM, duty cycle, velocity, crank angle, etc.Read More
The SDM-INT8 has eight channels that are individually programmed to record the timing of input voltage transitions (events). It uses this information to output:
The datalogger enables individual modules through an addressing scheme; up to 15 SDM-INT8s can be connected to one datalogger. After a module is enabled, it operates independently of the datalogger until additional commands are received or results are transmitted.

The SDMINT8 instruction controls the SDM-INT8 operation in CRBasic. Instruction 101 controls the SDM-INT8 operation in Edlog.
The SDM-INT8 draws 20 mA. In most applications, the datalogger’s sealed rechargeable power supply can be used. The datalogger’s alkaline power supply has sufficient capacity to operate the SDM-INT8 during short-term installations only.
The SDM-INT8 should be housed in an environmental enclosure. A bracket is shipped with the SDM-INT8 for mounting it to an enclosure backplate.
