Product Information

Product Description

Authorized North America Distributor Stamp

New style, same great functions and features.

Plug in up to eight (8) intelligent, plug-and-play sensors into the sensorProbe8 (SP8N), and monitor your assets from anywhere in the world.   Set up threshold conditions and alarm events through an easy webpage interface, and be alerted via email (which could even be tied to a pager), SMS, or via SNMP traps into a monitoring system like HP OpenView, and stop worrying!   Pull up a web page and check the status at anytime. 

The sensorProbe8 is an intelligent eight-port sensor device for monitoring environmental variations (temperature, humidity, airflow etc), power, physical threats and security. The SP8N is a completely embedded host with a proprietary Linux like Operating System, including TCP/IP stack, Web server, email, SMS and full SNMP functionality.

The sensorProbe8 comes with a high speed CPU, fast network connection and web interface including subnet mask and remote syslog interface. It also has a battery backed time of day clock so that accurate time-stamping of events are insured. The device also has advanced events filtering options. 

SensorProbe8 works with the relative humidity and temperature multi sensor module comprising a calibrated digital output.  By having both temperature & humidity sensors in a single sensor, the sensorProbe8 can have up to a maximum of 8 temperature & 8 humidity sensors. This extends the capability of the SP8N to a maximum of 16 sensing parameters!

Sensor Integration
The sensorProbe8 works with every intelligent sensor we sell. Connect any of our plug-and-play sensors, in any combination to monitor temperature, humidity, water leakage, airflow, security, detect AC Power Line Voltage, Measure DC Voltage, control relays, and more.  These sensors include an integrated data collection and graphing package to spot trends in the airflow, temperature, humidity, etc.

Every sensor comes with an unique autosense feature. Whenever a new type of sensor is plugged in, the autosense will recognize it and re configure the SP8N to begin monitoring it. In the event of an alarm or temperature / humidity threshold being exceeded, it has an ability to send alert notification using Email, SMS and SNMP Traps.

Data Logging and Reporting

The sensorProbe8 also features powerful embedded system logging.  Setup is easy with the embedded web server.  There is a simple graphing utility integrated into the SP8N which can monitor every temperature, humidity and other sensors and display a graphical report.


The sensorProbe8 can be safely updated over the internet using the advanced encrypted micro code updating program.

A web based interface with a user and administrator login feature helps prevent unauthorized access to the SP8N.   It  also features powerful embedded system logging.  Setup is easy with the embedded web server.  There is a simple graphing utility integrated into the SP8 which can monitor every temperature, humidity and other sensors and display a graphical report.

SNMP Integration
The SP8 is fully SNMP compliant and configurable.  Following initial configuration by the RJ45 port to set basic parameters such as IP address, Subnet Mask, Default gateway, SNMP community strings, trusted IP addresses and trap destinations, the unit is fully configurable from any SNMP terminal or Network Management product.

The SensorProbe8 is supplied with a MIB to allow its interface to SNMP based Network Management systems such as HP OpenView, IBM Tivoli, CA Unicenter, TNG and others.
