Customer Questions
What is the difference between the AKCP sensorProbe and securityProbe ranges?
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...
What is Akcess Pro Server
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.
Do the sensorProbe and securityProbe monitors require calibration?
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...
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...
What are the differences between the E-opto16 and dry contact points on X20 and X60 units?
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...
What is the measurement range of the AKCP temperature sensor?
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.
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...
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...
Which environment monitors support a cellular modem?
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...
What is the 4-20 mAmp converter used for?
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...
What is encrypted email?
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 ...
What are encrypted SNMP traps?
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...
