The AKCP sensorProbe8-X20 is a self-contained out-of-the-box solution for remote monitoring and management of external devices such as data centre equipment, HVAC, security equipment, UPS, generators or industrial equipment. SensorProbe8 saves you the cost and hassle of installing a separate software application to monitor your environmental conditions.

Dry Contact Systems

Many different types of equipment and devices use dry contact outputs to send alarm signals to remote panels, remote monitoring systems, and building management systems. Communicating the status of these dry contact systems is important in a complex Enterprise network, or automation industry to protect mission critical installations.

The SP8X-20 comes with 8 full autoSense RJ-45 ports for connecting any AKCP intelligent sensor. An additional 20, 2-wire dry contact ports are provided giving a total of up to 28 dry contact ports or a combination of dry contact and sensor. The specially designed 2 wire dry contact ports are easy to use and allow you to make your own dry contact cables quickly and easily.

Features of the AKCP sensorProbe8-X20

  • Network enabled built-in web server and SNMP support
  • Notifications via email, SMS (via gateway) and SNMP traps
  • 8 ports to connect any AKCP sensor
  • 20 dry contact ports for monitoring and alerting to status of devices
  • Integrates easily into any existing SNMP based Network Management System
  • Unlimited lifetime support

Sensors for the sensorProbe8-X20

Any of the eight ports present on the sensorProbe8 can be used to plug in any of the wide range of AKCP sensors, including temperature, combined temperature & humidity, wetness, airflow, smoke, motion, power presence, combined siren & strobe light alarm.

All AKCP probes use CAT5 cables giving you the freedom to extend the range of the probes over your existing structured cabling infrastructure. You can make best use of your sensorProbe8 investment to monitor multiple locations without the need to install new non-standard wiring.

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...

Is it feasible to route sensor traffic over the network to a single sensorProbe unit so that I can get a view of all the sites status?

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 ...

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.

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 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...

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 ...
