- All-Weather Performance
- Four Quad Gate Exit Gate Control
- Blocked Crossing Detection
- Independent Radar Outputs Can Be Vitally Circuited
Superior Accuracy and Resolution
Safely install two or more SmartSensor Matrix units above the crossing island and outside the roadway area. The sensors work together to provide fully redundant vehicle detection, and each unit continuously self-checks and crosschecks the other(s). Each sensor’s 90-degree, 100-foot detection range completely covers most crossings, recognizing lanes of traffic and detecting the presence of moving or stopped vehicles in up to eight lanes. For larger or irregularly shaped crossings, multiple sensors – up to eight – may be used without interference.
Flexible Crossing Controller Interfaces
Island Radar provides fully isolated optical, relay, and IP-based XML interface options to any make, model, or vintage of crossing electronics, including PLCs, relay logic, and the EGMS, GCP, and HXP controllers. Electrical surge protection and isolation meet or exceed the requirements of IEC 61000-4-5 class 4 and AREMA 11.3.3 Class C, respectively.
Simple Installation and Configuration
Radar sensors may be mounted on entrance gate masts or on stand-alone poles adjacent to the track, at the edge of the Minimum Track Clearance Distance zone. With auto-configuration, real time traffic visualization, and intuitive click-and-drag functionality, sensor setup is quick and easy.
