Great value, 2 sensor ports, easy to set up, economical monitoring solution with Power over Ethernet (PoE) support.

A simple, accurate and rugged 2 port intelligent sensor monitoring device

The sensorProbe2 is a low cost SNMP enable and Web-based Environmental Monitoring Device. Based on years of industry experience, it is ready to run out of the box. Simply assign the IP address and connect to the embedded webserver.

sensorProbe2 has been field-proven with versatile measurement options. It can be configured to prevent specific kinds of exposure to humidity, water leakage, gas, airflow and low/high temperature, etc. It supports other sensors which can monitor voltage drop, security, analogue and dry contacts.

A wide range of AKCP intelligent sensors are supported. Simply plug the sensor in the sensorProbe2 (or into your structured cabling network) and the autosense feature will recognise the type and automatically configure it. The sensorProbe monitors your equipment’s environmental variations, and notifies you through Email or SNMP Alerts in your Network Management system in advance to prevent any disaster. The user-friendly web interface allows you to monitor and control the sensorProbe2 from anywhere remotely. It also provides you with a graphical representation of environmental conditions.

AKCP sensorProbe2 Rear

The sensorProbe2 has been tightly integrated with Network Management Systems like HP Openview, CA TNG Unicenter, IBM Tivoli and WhatsUp Gold and is designed to run for years non-stop.

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

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.

No the sensorProbe2 does not include a sensor. You would need to add one or more sensors from the extensive range available.
Published in: AKCP
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.

Not directly or easily. None of the sensorProbe series products support switching off servers directly. It could be possible to send an email to a server and then have a job on the server wait for alert emails and then trigger the shutdown script. The securityProbe range provides a more direct solution as it is has a feature enabling it to shut down one or more servers. There is also a notification wizard for configuring the alarm actions. In this case you would need a temperature sensor, the... Read more

If you want to control the power to a remote device in reponse to a temperature going too high you could connect a Relay Sensor to the SensorProbe and use that to switch the power. If you simply want to alert on the presence or absence of power you could connect a Power Sensor. Both AC and DC versions are available.
Published in: AKCP
Yes, The sensorProbe2 can send alerts, draw a graph of temperatures and archive data. It is also possible to export data from the unit to produce long term graphs.
Published in: AKCP
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.
