The ultimate in modular design rack environmental monitor design. Design a solution to your problem and buy just the features you need.

Due to the highly configurable nature of the AKCP sensorProbeX+, it is not a stock item. Each unit is built on demand for each customer. A product specialist will assist you to build a bespoke 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 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 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. AKCP sensorProbeX+ Sensor4 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. AKCP sensorProbeX+ Dry Contact Module
A 3G 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 hte device through the cellular network. Ideal for remote site locations and those with unreliable DSL connections. AKCP sensorProbeX+ Cellular Modem Module

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.

No. Only the securityProbe range is able to read information from remote sensorProbes using the Virtual Probe feature. If you wanted to merge information from a number of different sensorProbe units, you would need to either use a 3rd party SNMP based network monitoring application or AKCP's own management software, AKcess Pro server.

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.

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
