Sensor ID is also referred to as Electronic Identification (EID). The EID function in DTS hardware/software allows automated assignment of the sensor when connected to a DAS sensor input channel. SLICE PRO, SLICE NANO/MICRO, TDAS G5 and TDAS PRO (SIM, TOM, DIM) support this scheme.
A typical SLICE MICRO/NANO application uses the DS2401 1-wire EID from Maxim (see Maxim DS2401). To improve installation, DTS provides EID "microcards" comprised of chip scale package DS2401 soldered to a circuit board that is potted with wires attached (see below).
The ARS3 PRO and 6DX PRO sensors include the EID for each sensor channel. If your DAS hardware and software support EID, this information can be read automatically and correlate the serial number with channel set-up information stored in your sensor information file or test set-up. The sensor ID is not required for the sensor to function correctly.
