analog temp probe
Temperature Sensor with Probe (Stereo jack)

Temperature Sensor with Probe
(Stereo jack - for small RTUs)
Temperature sensor that plugs into the external temp sensor jack present on some models of the NG216 G3, NetGuardian LT, SiteMON IP, and NetGuardian Voice 16. (7ft long)

Discrete Temperature, Humidity, and Motion Sensors

temp alert sensor
TempAlert Sensor
(30° F to 100° F)

TempAlert Sensor (30° to 100° F)
Discrete temperature sensor with high and low alarm thresholds Separate alarms for high and low temperatures. Temperature range from 30° to 100° F. (-1.1° to 37.8° C). Requires no power to operate. Wall mount rectangular box design. Includes screw kit for mounting hardware.

meter temp alert sensor
Meter Type TempAlert Sensor
(-30° to 100° F)

Meter Type TempAlert Sensor
(-30° F to 130° F)
Discrete temperature sensor with high and low alarm thresholds. Separate alarms for high and low temperatures. Temperature range from -30° to 130° F. (-34.4° to 54.4° C). Requires no power to operate. Not for use in freezers.

humidity sensor
Humidity Sensor (Discrete)

Humidity Sensor (Discrete)
Monitors a humidity range of 20% to 80% relative humidity. One alarm threshold that can be used as either a high or low humidity alarm. Great for monitoring humidity in computer rooms, COs, cell sites, nodes, and CEVs.

motion sensor
Motion Sensor (Discrete)

Motion Sensor (Discrete)
Monitors motion within a user-specified field of vision. Detection range from 3m-6m. Powered by 12 to 28 VDC. At sites with 110 VAC power, a +24 VDC wall-transformer is available (D-PR-105-10A-03). Can also be integrated with the Building Access System (BAS) to provide automatic exit tracking and intrusion notifications.

push to exit button
Push to Exit button (Discrete)

Push-to-Exit button
Push to exit button that may be illuminated by providing 12V. Momentary switch that mounts in a wall switch receptacle (2 1/2" deep). Ideal for use with the Entry Control Unit (ECU) to provide a signal to release the door latch for an authorized exit.

Discrete Liquid Level Sensors

liquid level sensor
Discrete Liquid Level Sensor

Discrete Liquid Level Sensor
Provides a discrete contact closure when liquid levels fall below parameters. Contains a dry reed switch encapsulated within a stem. Supports N/O and N/C alarm contacts. Operates at a maximum temperature of 105° C and a maximum pressure of 150 PSI.

Building Status Sensors

water sensor
Water Sensor and Controller

Water Sensor and Controller
Provides a discrete contact closure when water is detected. The sensor will not trigger an alarm due to condensation or high humidity. Supports N/O and N/C alarm contacts. Powered by 8 to 28 VAC or DC (not included). For 110 VAC, use 24 V wall transformer (D-PR-105-10A-00).

Water Sensor Only
#1040 (for WB200)

smoke detector
Smoke Detector

Photoelectric Smoke Detector with Heat Sensor
Photoelectric smoke detector uses pulsed infrared diodes to eliminate false alarms caused by dust, insects, FR and ambient light. Integrated heat detector triggers alarms at temperatures above 135° F, or at temperatures above 105° F with a rise-rate of 15° F per minute. Either heat detector or smoke detector can trip and latch LED and alarm relay outputs. UL listed. Powered by either 12 VDC or 24 VDC. For 110 VAC use 24 V wall transformer (DPR- 105-10A-00). For -48V DC, use -48 VDC to -12 VDC DC to DC converter (D-PC-766-10A-00).

door sensor
Door Sensor

Door Sensor (Surface Mount)
Closed loop magnetic contact sensor. Consists of magnet and contact. Gap distance is 5/8. Includes screw kit for mounting hardware.

in/out motion sensor
Interior / Exterior Motion Sensor

Interior / Exterior Motion Sensor (Discrete)
Water-resistant motion sensor with Advanced ASIC Technology. Focuses on intruders and ignores cats, mice, birds & insects for virtually no fales alarms. Ideal for triggering DPS SiteMON IP camera. Detection method: Uses 2 matching dual optics (passive infrared).

Power, Battery and Voltage Sensors

power out sensor
Power Out Alert Sensor

Power Out Alert Sensor (Discrete)
Plugs into any 110 VAC circuit that needs to be monitored. When power is interrupted for three to eight consecutive minutes, sensor outputs a contact closure.

current sensor
Current Sensor

Current Sensor (Analog, AC or DC)
D-PK-SENSR-12011.00001 (AC, 0 to 200 Amp)
D-PR-577-10A-00 (DC, 0 to 100 Amp)
D-PR-578-10A-00 (DC, 0 to 100 Amp, Bipolar)

Current sensor and signal conditioner measures AC or DC currents and isolates sensor output from conductor. Outputs 4 to 20 mA. User-selectable Amp scales. Split core design, allows sensors to be placed around cable without interrupting operation. Great for motor drives, UPS systems, battery chargers, Current Sensor power supplies, and replacement for shunts.
