Bangkok, Thailand. July 15, 2004
AKCP, the world leader in environmental and security monitoring, today announces a reduction in their sensor prices, an increase in their maximum range and the introduction of sensorRemote boxes.
AKCP has reduced the price for all of their sensor products. This will result in a more affordable price, allowing the customer to economically increase the number of points monitored. Now it will be possible to monitor several areas for hot spots due to poor air circulation.
The company has today released a low cost sensorRemote box. These units are available in both remote temperature and remote temperature and humidity versions. The remote box can be connected by using a standard CAT-5 cable with an RJ45 connector. The sensorRemote box will accept one side of this cable into its standard RJ45 receptacle and the sensorProbe or cameraProbe will accept the other side of this cable into its standard RJ45 receptacle.
This provides the customers a flexibility to position the sensorRemote box anywhere with a cable of the correct length. The sensorRemote box contains sensors and support circuitry allowing the cable to be extended up to 1,000 feet. Standard RJ45 connectors are used, allowing the sensorRemote box to be connected via corporate networking patch panels in many cases.
The sensorRemote box with temperature sensor is priced at $75.00 and the sensorRemote box with temperature and humidity sensor is priced at $120.00. The sensorRemote box requires one spare autosense port on either the sensorProbe or the cameraProbe.
