sensorProbe8 X20 DCW - monitoring with +40 - 60 V

The AKCP`s web-based sensorProbe8-X20 DCW features 2 additional 40-60 VDC power supply inputs and it is used in environments where 48 volts DC are required, such as in industrial, data center and telecom environments.

AKCP sensorProbe8-X20DCW

Monitor via your existing network important installations and infrastructures with environmental sensors and with additional 20 dry contact inputs.

The sensorProbe8 X20 DCW has two ± 40-60 VDC power supply connections. The connection of the sensorProbe8 DCW-X20 to two different 48VDC different power circuits is easily possible. The advantage of a redundant power supply is obvious: If power supply of either 48V lines breaks down, a continious power supply on the other line is guaranteed.

Typical Applications of sensorProbe8-X20DCW:

  • Remote monitoring of infrastructures (the server room, network room, equipment rooms)
  • Continuous monitoring of the physical security
  • Alarms when threats and disaster endanger the availability of your infrastructures

Prepared for integration in network management systems / NMS

The web-based sensorProbe8-X20 (AK-SP8-X20) Alarm Server is compatible with SNMP v1 and SNMP configurable. Thus, there is a use of the sensorProbe8-X20 under NMS solutions such as NAGIOS, HP OpenView, CA Unicenter TNG, IBM Tivoli, WhatsUp Gold and so nothing in the way. Also, integration of the AKCP monitoring devices in OpenNMS is supported.

The options required for NMS integration MIB files and SNMP Utilities are included with the sensorProbe8-X20. Here we show you how to integrate the sensorProbe8-X20 monitoring hardware running Nagios.

The competent team of Didactum® is available to customers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland in the planning and installation of network management systems (NMS) to help. Please also note our proven training for Nagios.
