SPX+ is the latest generation of sensorProbe devices. For racks, 1U or tool-less 0U mounting are available. For Industrial applications, DIN rail mounting is an option. SPX+ employs a modular system, allowing you to build up your unit, only paying for the features you need.
A wide range of environmental and security monitoring sensors can be used with SPX+, including Thermal Map Sensors for identifying cabinet hotspots, and RFID Swing Handle Locks to secure your cabinets.
For remote site locations, an internal GSM cellular data modem can be installed to maintain connectivity and send alerts.
Both Expansion (EXP) and Basic Expansion Bus (BEB) technology comes as standard on every SPX+.
SPX+ is well suited for use in both Data Center and Industrial applications. Anyplace you need sensor monitoring you can deploy the SPX+.
The below modules can be added to the standard configurations to build up the device with what you need. For example, if you wish to have 12 sensor ports, you can order an SPX8 and an additional sensor4 module.
If your configuration exceeds 1U then there is the option to continue the configuration on an additional U connected via BEB to the base unit.
The Main Control Unit is the core of the SPX+. A mandatory module, it forms the base configuration of every unit. With 4x intelligent sensor ports you can begin to monitor a wide variety of sensors out of the box. The Ethernet port provides network connectivity. An Expansion (EXP) port provides connection of SPX+ EXP units, which can be extended up to 18 meters total length. A buzzer for alerts and alarms is built in to this module.
The Sensor 4 Module gives additional intelligent sensor ports, allowing you to build your SPX+ to your requirements. Connect a wide range of intelligent sensors and smarkRack sensors such as thermal maps and RFID Swing handle locks.
The 5V Isolated Dry Contact Module allows you to add dry contacts monitoring in x10 & x20 blocks. The dry contact can be specified to be I/O, isolated input only (internal 5V), or isolated input only (external 5-20v). Dry contacts can be used to monitor a variety of third-party devices and alarm panels.
The Cellular Data Modem module can be added to your SPX+ to give a primary or backup method of communication. Send SMS and email alerts directly from the device through a cellular data network. Ideal for remote site locations and those with unreliable DSL connections. Data modems are available in 3G and 4G versions.
