AKCP Detects various fuel type leaks – customizable length – up to 165 feet

Bangkok, Thailand – August 24, 2010 – AKCP Inc.,

announces the launch of the new ropeFuel Sensor. This new sensor features a customizable length rope that will detect various fuel types when they make contact at any location along its entire length. Ideal for lying in areas close to generator fuel tanks, fuel storage areas, or fuel transfer stations, for example, where leaking fuel could have catastrophic consequences. This sensor unit will be vital to any business that is concerned with disaster prevention plans. This sensing rope detects the presence of liquid hydrocarbon fuels like Gasoline, Diesel fuel, Jet fuel or Xylene, at any point along its length.

New ropeFuel Sensor

  • Detects the specific location of fuel if it comes into contact with any section of the rope.
  • Customizable length with numerous specific ‘sensing’ locations at one meter or one foot intervals.
  • Up to 165 feet of location sensing on a single rope are possible.
  • Connects to AKCP securityProbe and sensorProbe RJ-45 sensor ports.
  • Both units will auto-detect the presence of the ropeFuel Sensor.
  • Sensor module LED will activate when liquid is detected by the sensor.
  • Sensor will report a critical status if the cable breaks, is cut, or unplugged.

The ropeFuel Sensor can be plugged into the AKCP sensorProbe or securityProbe 5E intelligent sensor ports enabling the unit to measure fuel leaks in a specific location along the sensor rope. This can be used to trigger alerts like e-mail, SMS, phone calls and SNMP traps. The sensor has its own SNMP OID so that the data can be collected over the network using any Network Management System. The AKCP ropeFuel Sensor comes fully assembled and includes the fuel sensing rope, the non-sensing area cable and the main sensing module. The sensing module is then connected to the base unit (sensorProbe or securityProbe 5E) using the standard CAT5 LAN cable. For more detailed information take a look at the datasheet. The new ropeFuel Sensor can be ordered directly from AKCP or from any one of our many dealers located around the world. Visit www.akcp.com for more information on this and related products. Please note: The ropeFuel Sensor is only compatible with the securityProbe, securityProbe 5E and the newer sensorProbe2 shipped after October 2009. If you have an older sensorProbe2 or sensorProbe8 base unit, please contact AKCP for upgrade details.
