Sensys Networks introduces the Access Point Controller Card (APCC)—the newest hardware addition to its VDS240 wireless vehicle detection universal platform. The APCC combines the “brains” of the Access Point with contact closure card functionality—in the cabinet—for maximum detection flexibility and minimal power usage (less than 1W), ideal for solar-powered applications.

Able to integrate with up to two digital radios (SPP), the APCC doubles sensor coverage, reduces hardware usage, and enhances communications, backhaul, and data storage capabilities—with a minimal cabinet footprint. The APCC system provides enhanced flexibility for all detection applications and is well suited for large and complex intersections.

  • Radio communications
  • Sensor data relay and processing
  • Data relay and storage
  • Master timebase for all supported wireless sensors
  • Radio signal quality measurement
  • Firmware upgrades
  • Easy installation
  • Low power
  • No calibration or adjustments needed

The VDS240 APCC System utilizes a digital radio in conjunction with access point “brains,” now housed in the cabinet. The system’s minimum configuration consists of one APCC and one SPP radio, but also supports multiple SPP radios. The addition of an isolator provides electrical isolation and surge protection (up to 1500V), and AC power cross protection.

The isolator provides electrical isolation up to 1500V, surge protection up to 1500V, and AC power cross protection.

Sensor | Sensys Networks

Flexible, dependable, low-cost, the Sensys Networks VDS240 wireless vehicle detection system uses magneto-resistive wireless sensors to detect vehicle presence and movement. Virtually maintenance free, our sensors install in minutes, and deploy in a mater of hours, transmitting real-time data for a variety of traffic management applications. Rapid installation and deployment reduces road closures and worker exposure.


Master (CC) & Expansion (EX) Cards

If more channels are required, up to 63 EX cards can be daisy-chained to the CC card front panel via RJ45 connector, or by rewiring the backplane. The Master and Expansion cards of the VDS240 Wireless Vehicle Detection System can be used in the following traffic controllers. With up to four optically isolated contact closure relays, channel status is configurable when using a TS2 controller.
