AKCP sensorProbeX+ models are highly configurable from many components. Each unit is built on demand for each customer. This monitor is pre-configured with a popular configuration. If you require a bespoke configuration, a product specialist will assist you to build a solution geared to your exact requirements. Please get in touch for a quote.

The AKCP sensorProbeX+ is the latest generation of sensorProbe device that allows for 1U or 0U mounting in your data center cabinets. With a low profile design it utilises less cabinet space.

The sensorProbeX+ employs a modular design, allowing you to build your unit to suite your own requirements. You only pay for the features you need.

You can count on a wide range of environmental and security monitoring sensors including thermal mapping sensors for identifying cabinet hotspots and RFID swing handle locks to secure your cabinets.

For remote sites an internal GSM cellular data modem can be installed to maintain connectivity and send alerts.

SPX Modules

The sensorProbeX+ is an extremely flexible environment monitor because it is built using a series of pluggable modules. If you need assistance choosing the correct modules, a product specialist will assist you to build a bespoke solution geared to your exact requirements. Please get in touch for a quote.

MCU module

AKCP sensorProbeX+ MCU Module

The MCU module is the core of theSPX+. A mandatory module, it forms the base configuration of every unit. With 4x intelligent sensor ports you can begin to monitor a wide variety of sensors. An ethernet port provides network connectivity and an expansion port gives compatibility to AKCP expansion modules such as the E-Sensor8 and E-Optio16.

The MCU is available as a hot-swap module, allowing you, in the event of failure, to easily swap out the module yourself and install a replacement without needing to return the whole unit to us.

sensor4 module

AKCP sensorProbeX+ Sensor4 Module

sensor4 modules give additional intelligent sensor ports, allowing you to build your SPX+ to your requirements. Connect a wide range of intelligent sensors and smartRack sensors such ans the thermal map sensors and RFID Swing Handle Locks.

Dry contact modules

AKCP sensorProbeX+ Dry Contact Module

Dry contact modules can be added in 10x or 20x blocks. The dry contacts can be specified to be I/O, isolated input only (internal 5V), isolated input only (external 5-20V). Dry contacts can be used to monitor a variety of third party devices and alarm panels.

GSM cellular modem

AKCP sensorProbeX+ Cellular Modem Module

A 4G GSM cellular data modem module can be added to your SPX+ to give a primary or backup method of communication. Send SMS and email alerts directly from the device through the cellular network. Ideal for remote site locations and those with unreliable DSL connections.

Environmental Sensors

  • Monitor rack air inlets and outlets using the Thermal Map sensors, to identity cabinet hotspots and potential energy savings due to over cooling;
  • Monitor temperature, relative humidity, air flow and lots more;
  • Control cabinet access with RFID Swing Handle Cabinet Locks;
  • Features SNMPv3, HTTPS, VPN and encrypted email.

Customer Questions
Is it possible to extend AKCP sensors?
AKCP sensors all use RJ45 connectors and can be extended using standard CAT5 cable and one or more inline couplers up to a maximum distance of 100m. Historically, AKCP did recommend extending their sensors using your structured cabling systems. AKCP...
How do we trigger the A/V alarms based on the alarm condition our system generates?
I assume that you would like to be able to have the siren/strobe light activated by your existing alarm system. If you have a dry contact coming from your alarm system into a port on the sensorProbe, and the siren/strobe from another port on the sensorprobe...
What is the accuracy of the AKCP temperature sensor?
The AKCP temperature sensors have an accuracy of  ±0.5°C from -10 to +75°C.
What is AKCPro Server?
AKCPro Server is a software application written by AKCP for logging and alerting you to environmental problems in your data center. The software is able to integrate all of the wide range of monitoring tools available from AKCP like inline power measurement...
