Ask a Question
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 alerting. The securityProbe range also supports a wider range of sensors. Though the additional sensors supported do tend to be quite niche, like fuel tank level measurement and the like. With the release of the sensorProbe2+ and sensorProbeX+... Read more

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 "Reading Offset". There is also a calibration certificate available on request for the 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 have more recently stopped recommending the use of structured cabling systems as structured cabling systems become more intelligent they begin to interfere with the sensor signal making the sensor reading unreliable at best.

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 inputs do require an input voltage as the module will not supply this voltage. When configuring the E-opto16 in the web interface of the securityProbe 5E and the dry contact input is set to the “Normal State” when voltage is applied,... Read more

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, then yes, you can trigger activation of the siren/strobe light based on a change in state across the dry contact.

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 USB modems that can be fitted at any time.

The AKCP 4-20 mAmp converter is used to connect specialised sensors that are not available from AKCP. The 4-20 mAmp is a standard for highly precise sensors. Examples of the types of sensors that support the 4-20 mAmp standard are Air Pressure Sensor, Photo Electric Light Sensors, Soil Moisture Sensors, Toxic Gas Sensors, Radiation Sensors and Water Flow Sensors. The sensor must have a two wire termination. Read more

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 a much more naive place when the original SMTP standard was developed. It has since been enhanced to include an option to encrypt the email traffic when it is sent from the email client to the server. Why does encrypted email matter to an... Read more
