AKCP, a leading provider of networked wired and wireless sensor solutions, announced the release of an industrial operating temperature option for the sensorProbe+. This new option extends the operating temperature range of the sensorProbe+ to -25°C, making it ideal for use in harsh environments such as Northern and Southern latitudes and the cold chain storage industry.
The sensorProbe+ is AKCP’s flagship series of base units, comprising the SP1+, SP2+ and SPX+ devices. These devices are used extensively around the world for sensor monitoring in data centers, telecoms, factories, warehouses and remote sites. The sensorProbe+ is known for its robust design and industry-leading MTBF of 10,950,000 hours.
“The introduction of this new industrial operating temperature option expands the versatility of our sensorProbe+ platform,” said Nick Barrowclough, President at AKCP. “This enhancement will allow our customers to deploy our monitoring solutions in a wider range of environments, including those with extreme cold temperatures.”
An example of a recent project that required the new sensorProbe+ devices is the monitoring of wellheads in harsh Canadian winters. This project demanded a robust, low-powered, and reliable device that could withstand extreme cold temperatures. The SPX+ with the industrial operating temperature option was the perfect solution for this project.
The sensorProbe+ devices are fully SNMP compliant and include industry-standard communication protocols such as MQTT, MQTTS, Modbus RTU, and TCP/IP for integration with third-party monitoring and management platforms. In addition, AKCP offers a fully featured sensor management platform of their own, AKCPro Server, which is tightly integrated with their sensorProbe+ and sensor solutions.
AKCP, established in the USA in 1981, has over 40 years of experience in professional sensor solutions. The company created the market for networked temperature, environmental, and power monitoring in the data center. Today, with over 150 employees and 200,000 installations, AKCP is the world’s oldest and largest manufacturer of networked wired and wireless sensor solutions.
