Sensing Technology:

SenSource has developed a complete line of sensors to fit most every people counting application. Industries utilizing sensing technology include retail, libraries, visitor centers, gaming and entertainment, churches, public transit and university student unions. The information below summarizes SenSource sensing technologies.

 
Directional Stereo Vision Cameras - PC-VID2 Series

Directional Stereo Vision Cameras - PC-VID2 Series

Stereo vision sensors are mounted overhead and maintain separate counts for multiple people in m any directions simultaneously. This is the best solution for busy entrances such as large retailers and entertainment venues. Stereo vision sensors count individuals by detecting body shape and height and can accurately distinguish between adults, children and other objects such as shopping carts. The tilt-mount option provides further range of mounting positions for difficult to monitor areas. With the optional Queue Package, line wait times, transaction times and queue lengths can be monitored.

Directional Thermal Imaging Cameras - PC-THI60 series

Thermal imaging sensors are mounted overhead and maintain separate counts for multiple people in two directions simultaneously, in and out. This tracks and records both entrances and exits. Thermal imaging sensors count individuals by detecting body heat within the specified detection area. Thermal sensors are not affected by changes in ambient light nor can the detection area be blocked by lingering people or objects.

 
 
Non-Directional Photoelectric Sensors - PC-TB12 series

Non-Directional Photoelectric Sensors - PC-TB12 series

Non-Directional Photoelectric Sensors, also known as "beam" counters, are mounted on the side of an entry and will maintain a single count for traffic in both directions, in and out. These sensors are best suited for entrances where people are not likely to enter and/or exit simultaneously. Photoelectric sensors use narrow infrared, single-beam technology to count and record traffic each time the beam is broken and can detect across a distance up to 30 feet. Some versions use separate infrared transmitter and receiver units and other versions use a sensor with a reflector. Less accurate than thermal imaging sensors, photoelectric sensors will only count once for two or more people entering or exiting at the same time. These sensors are available in low-voltage, line-powered or long-lasting, battery-powered versions.

 
 
Non-Directional and Directional Proximity Sensors - - PC-2D2M

Non-Directional and Directional Proximity Sensors - PC-2D2M

Proximity Sensors can be mounted on the front, side, or overhead to count a person passing through the sensing area. These sensors are best suited for smaller entrances, kiosks, information desks and service counters where people are not likely to pass the sensor simultaneously. Proximity sensors use infrared diffused-beam technology to record traffic each time the beam is broken. Less accurate than thermal imaging sensors, these sensors will only count once for two or more people passing in front of or beneath the beam at the same time. These sensors are available in a low voltage line powered version and can sense up to six feet.

 
 
Non-Directional Passive Infrared Sensors (Motion Sensors) - PC-PIR15

Non-Directional Passive Infrared Sensors (Motion Sensors) - PC-PIR15

Non-Directional Passive Infrared Sensors are mounted overhead to count a person passing through the sensing area. These sensors are best suited for entrances where people are not likely to enter and/or exit simultaneously. Passive infrared technology detects heat emitted from objects passing through the sensing area. Less accurate than thermal imaging technology, these sensors will only count once for two or more people passing in front of or beneath the beam at the same time. Non-Directional Passive Infrared Sensors are available in low-voltage, line-powered or long-lasting, battery-powered versions and can sense up to 50 feet in narrow beam or 17 feet in fan pattern modes.
