DC Sensor Controlled Relay
The Sensor Controlled Relay can control the electrical power to devices managed over the Internet
The relay can provide automatic responses to sensor alerts, for example, to switch on the fan when the room temperature rises beyond the threshold level or to turn on a light when the motion detector is triggered.

Note: There are two versions of the sensor controlled relay, 110V input for USA supply voltages, and 220V for EU supply voltages. If you are unsure about which product to order, please contact us at [email protected]. See our price list for ordering details.
The Sensor Controlled Relay can control the electrical power to devices managed over the Internet. With easy configuration and integration with the sensorProbe product series. The Sensor Controlled Relay defines a new era in energy management.
The Sensor Controlled Relay is easily controlled by any of AKCP’s extensive selection of sensors. The relay can provide automatic responses to sensor alerts. This is useful, for example, to switch on the fan when the room temperature rises beyond the threshold level or to turn on a light when the motion detector is triggered. Setting up the Sensor Controlled Relay is easy with its built in autosense feature and user friendly web interface.
The Sensor Controlled Relay can also be controlled via external computers using the included snmp command line utilities either interactively or programmatically. In addition the Sensor Controlled Relay can be controlled via the integrated we interface on the sensorProbe.
The Sensor Controlled Relay includes Metal Oxide Varistors (MOVs) and Snubber circuits to protect the open contacts of the relay from high voltage spikes or noise transients. It monitors the power and load & will accept a control signal which is sent from the sensorProbe or securityProbe base unit.
A simple, point and click web manager can set link the Sensor Controlled Relay to a sensor. When the sensor goes to the chosen state, for example, High Critical, the Relay can be made to Cycle, which will turn on and then turn off the external device for the selected period of time. In this case, when the sensor goes High Critical, the automatic response system will Cycle the relay for 20 seconds. Users can easily change the fields in the Relay Settings Menu according to their needs using the dropdown list boxes.
Increased Response Time
The Sensor Controlled Relay with the automatic response feature can give the users more flexibility in responding to the environmental alerts. Automatic response eliminates the need for the user intervention during the alarm condition.
The Sensor Controlled Relay has a built in fuse that provides protection for the external devices from possible damage due to over voltages or high current.
Status of The Sensor Controlled Relay is reported by 4 LEDs on the board. Remote monitoring of the status is available using SNMP traps, web interface, e-mail and SMS.
