AKCP securityProbe 5E Standard X20
Fully featured environment monitor including web based maps and automatic sensor detection and 20 dry contact inputs.
If you want to invest in only one system that will monitor for environmental threats, alert you so that you can take action before any damage occurs and have something that is adaptable enough to grow with your business then the securityProbe 5ES-X20 is it.
The securityProbe5ES-X20 is an intelligent sophisticated environment monitoring system with all the features of the securityProbe 5ES but with an additional 20 2-wire dry contact inputs. It will monitor a wide range of parameters such as high temperatures, smoke, water leakage, power outage etc in up to 500 locations and alert to changes and threats via email, SMS/MMS, SNMP traps and more. An added Virtual Sensors feature monitors power, Modbus, network devices and other SNMP based equipment.

In very simple terms, the securityProbe range is more feature rich than the sensorProbe range. The sensorProbe range offers a more honed feature set and lacks some of the more advanced alerting options available on the securityProbe range like SMS text...
Akcess Pro server is a software product developed by AKCP to support their environment monitors. The software enables central data logging and alerting of sensorProbe and securityProbe monitors.
AKCP temperature and humidity sensors have a quite high accuracy and are calibrated by the supplier of the sensor. In general they do not need much calibration. The user could carry out calibration to verify accuracy. If needed you can adjust using the...
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...
The dry contact inputs on the X20 and X60 units can be switched from opto-isolated mode to non-opto isolated mode, where the E-opto16 inputs are all shipped as opto isolated and cannot be configured as non-opto isolated. Because of this, the E-opto16...
The AKCP Temperature Sensor has a temperature range of -55 to +125°C / -67 to +257°F with an accuracy of ±0.5°C from -10 to +75°C.
I assume that you would like to be able to have the siren/strobe light acitvated 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...
All of the securityProbe monitors as well as the sensorProbe2+ and sensorProbeX+ can be fitted with an optional built-in cellular modem at order time. A built-in cellular modem cannot be added afterwards. However, the securityProbe monitors do support...
The AKCP 4-20 mAmp converter is used to connect specialised sensors that are not available from AKCP to the securityProbe range of environment monitors. The 4-20 mAmp is a standard for highly precise sensors. Examples of the types of sensors that support...
When you send email using regular SMTP servers the email you send is sent plain text over the network. Plain text means that, with proper network sniffiing tools, the email can be read by anybody with access to the network traffic. The internet was ...
When SNMP versions 1 and 2c were originally developed many years ago, SNMP did not include any ability to encrypt data contained within the SNMP datagrams or SNMP traps. Given that the data was never intended to flow across the public internet this was...
