4-20 mAmp Sensor

The 4-20 mAmp signal converter is used to integrate the sensorProbe with a 4-20 mAmp transmitter

4-20 mAmp Sensor

AKCP intelligent sensors

The AKCP 4-20 mAmp signal converter is used for integration of the AKCP sensorProbe and AKCP securityProbe remote security devices with a 4-20 mAmp transmitter. The 4-20 mAmp technology is used to transmit analog signals over long distances in enviroments with electrical interference.

The process control industry uses this technology to collect the analog values from remote sensors because current signals are much less susceptible to noise than voltage signals. A voltage signal can be converted to current and then broadcast over a long distance before it is converted back to voltage and read by the AKCP sensorProbe or AKCP securityProbe device.

Individual adjustment of measurement units in the web interface

In the Web interface of the sensorProbe and securityProbe IP Meters You can customize the settings of the signal converter 4 20mAmp / measurement converter indivuduell.

So you can rename the connected analogue sensors foreign individual and the unit, such as Celsius (C), revolutions per minute (rev / min), Pascal (Pa) registration form.

SNMP functionality of the sensor measurement converter 4-20mAmp

The sensor and securityProbe IP Alarm Server are SNMP compatible. The sensor 4-20mAmp Signal Converters / measurement converter is equipped with a so-called. "Object Identifier" (OID) and can be used in SNMP tools (MRTG, Cacti, etc.) or network management systems (OpenNMS, Nagios etc.) are involved.

The required MIB files and SNMP Utilities are included with all sensorProbe and securityProbe monitoring systems!


The installation of 4-20mAmp measurement converter is straightforward. After attaching the appropriate sensor (pressure sensor, gas sensor pp.) To the 4-20mAmp measurement converter, you just have to plug the Cat5 cable supplied to a free sensor terminal of the sensorProbe or securityProbe monitoring device.

Thanks to the Auto Sense feature, the sensor measurement converter is automatically identified and displayed in the web interface of the sensorProbe or securityProbe. You then define the desired units and limit and warning values at lower or exceeding the measured values of the devices connected to the converter sensor.

Configuration of devices connected to the measurement converter 4-20mAmp party sensors in the German web interface of the securityProbe 5E meter. The unit, and you see the actual and desired values can be defined individually in the web interface. Then set the desired alarm types with measurement error fixed: The securityProbe-5E provides, inter alia, Email, SMS and phone alarm and SNMP trap to your system and network monitoring program (OpenNMS, Nagios, MRTG, Cacti, others). With the help of optional at Didactum securityProbe expansion units up to 600 sensors can be connected to a single securityProbe5E!

Here is one of the new features of the securityProbe-5E meter: captured from 4- 20mAmp measurement converter measurement values can be displayed on request in the form of a manometer. This form of presentation provides just in Leitwartenumfeld benefits. By simple mouse click you can easily switch to the analog display of the sensor measurement data. Incidentally Didactum also offers guided live demos for sample security monitoring systems. Here we present the extensive online capabilities of this high-end environment monitor. Trained staff are available for questions and answer questions.
