Product Information

Product Description

Authorized North America Distributor Stamp

Connect up to 8 AKCP sensors and 20 Dry Contact Inputs to the SensorProbe8-X20.

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 the mission critical installations of expensive equipment. The SP8N-X20 is based on sensorProbe™ technology with an advanced 20 dry contact inputs. It comes in a 1 U rackmount box.

At the core of the SP8N–X20 is the sensorProbe8, which is then integrated with the 20 dry contact system. This offers support for remote monitoring and management of various external devices. This integrated system enables connection and monitoring of devices like HVAC systems, Security Equipment, UPS, Generators, Industrial Equipment etc. The SP8N embedded web server makes the addition of these devices easy.

The SP8N-X20 has 8 full autoSense RJ-45 ports for connecting any of our intelligent sensors. An additional 20, 2 wire dry contact ports are provided giving a total of up to 28 dry contact ports. 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.

This device is equipped with a TCP/IP stack, internal web Server, e-mail, SMS and Full SNMP functionality. It also comes with an optional, high-speed, TI DSP and 16-bit A/D Converter for the specific requirements of special projects, such as integrating power monitoring device. The SP8N-X20 is virtually a ‘plug n play’ device and is extremely easy to use and maintain. The installation process is also simple and one does not need additional power supply or batteries when new optional sensors are added.
