• AKCP Rope Fuel Sensor

This sensor is suited to locations that contain fuel storage tanks or fuel transfer stations and is especially ideal for remote locations that use diesel fuel generators. The AKCess Pro ropeFuel sensor is a rope-type leak detector that connects to any AKCess Pro sensorProbe or securityProbe RJ-45 Intelligent Sensor Ports and facilitates the detection of fuel and other liquids.

The ropeFuel sensor detects the presence of liquid hydrocarbon fuels at any point along its length. Installed with the AKCess Pro sensor module, the sensor detects the liquid, triggers an alarm, and pinpoints the location of a leak within a meter, or a foot. Typically this sensor can detect:

  • Gasoline
  • Diesel #1
  • Jet A\B\5\8
  • JP-4\5\7
  • Kerosene

As this sensor is a rope type it is perfect for lying beneath fuel tanks, usually found being used with diesel generators in remote locations where early warning of fuel leakage or theft is vital to maintaining the power supply, either of a UPS or as the main power source.

The AKCP ropeFuel sensor in most cases is for single usage only and must be replaced after exposure to hydrocarbon liquids.


Cable Diameter 0.28 in. (7 mm) nominal.
Operating Temperature Range -20°C to 60°C (-4° F to 140° F).
Pull Force Limit Not to exceed 50 lb.
Bend Radius 2 in. (50 mm) minimum.
Pressure Loads greater than 20 lb (9 kg) per linear inch at 20°C (68°F) may immediately trigger an alarm.
Measurement Accuracy Capable of detecting the presence of fuel and oil at a specific location within 1 meter, or 1 foot along the length of the sensing rope.
Sensor Type Patent pending, microprocessor controlled capacitance measurement technology.
Nonresettable Must be replaced after exposure to hydrocarbon liquids.
Power Consumption Typical 125 mWatt, 25 mA.
  Comes fully assembled and includes the rope portion that is the liquid sensing cable, the non-sensing leader cable (from the rope to the sensing module) and the main sensing module. Also includes a 5 foot CAT5 extension cable.
Communications Cable RJ-45 jack to main sensor module using standard UTP CAT5 cable. Maximum extension cable length is 30 meters or 100 feet.
  Sensing Rope Cable can be pre-ordered from a 1 meter minimum to any custom run length of up to 5 meters.
  Non-sensing Cable comes in a standard 20 foot run length and can be extended up to 165 feet (50 meters).
  Sensor OID is .
Note AKCP does not recommend the ropeFuel Sensor to be placed on a conductive surface.

Portable Server Room Diagnostic Sensor Toolkit

Despite advances in CFD software and pre-deployment simulations of data center environments. The majority of server rooms, remote sites and data centers are not designed to handle ever increasing loads and the heat generated by that increased activity.

WIRELESS WORKFLOW enables early diagnostics of any server room or data center facility. Detecting problems arising from under or over cooling, hot air re-circulation in IT rack space and air delivery resulting in high or low air pressure in raised floors and dropped ceiling plenums.
