APCC System | Sensys Networks

Able to integrate with up to two digital radios, the APCC doubles sensor coverage, reduces hardware usage, and enhances communications, backhaul, and data storage capabilities—with a minimal cabinet footprint. 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.


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.


Access Point | Sensys Networks

RJ45 port supports simultaneous Ethernet and CC card communications combined with data relay, statistics-processing and VPN functionality with Integrated GPRS cellular data modem for data relay via GSM. RJ45 port supports Ethernet interface for field configuration and data relay, statistics-processing and VPN functionality; configurable with 48VDC or 12VDC power input via RJ45 port.
