One of the world’s leading providers of integrated wireless traffic detection and data systems for the transportation industry, Sensys Networks, has released and updated a number of products in its Flex Suite line.
Sensys Networks has added the all-new FlexAP (Access Point), FlexRepeat3 Solar and FlexNode to its industry-leading Flex Suite portfolio of traffic detection hardware units. The widely-used Flex range of products delivers accurate and dependable detection data to drive reductions in urban traffic congestion for partners and public agencies around the world.
The updates are:
• FlexAP – An upgrade to the company’s legacy pole-mounted Access Point unit, which is an intelligent Linux device used to maintain two-way communications with in-ground wireless sensors, repeaters and nodes. FlexAP (right) relays data to roadside controllers, remote servers, traffic management systems, or other vehicle detection applications. The new features include: an upgraded processing power, onboard memory and radio strength; improved housing for all weather conditions; and increased support for custom applications.
• FlexRepeat3 Solar – A new single-unit solar-powered repeater, featuring a 10-year expected life, reliable design with multiple layers of redundancy, improved housing for all weather conditions, and external antenna options for greater configuration flexibility.
• FlexNode – A new DC line-powered radio, featuring a robust enclosure for all weather conditions, and external antenna options for greater configuration flexibility (below right).
The new products join the existing Flex lineup that includes the: Flex Repeater; FlexMag in-road wireless magnetometer vehicle sensor; FlexRadar in-road micro-radar detection unit that can differentiate between bicycles and vehicles; FlexID wi-fi and Bluetooth detection and re-identification unit for travel time and origin/destination analytics; and the FlexControl hardened Linux management computer that processes sensor data within a traffic cabinet.
“We have improved our suite of Flex products to meet the current and emerging needs of our customers,” explained Christopher Flores, Sensys Networks’ director of product management.
“Our emphasis on increased integration, innovative mechanical design, latest components, and built-in diagnostics, provide our customers with products that are lower cost, more reliable and flexible, and easier to configure and maintain,” .
“These new improvements directly benefit our customers’ detection and data applications, from stop-bar actuation to optimized signal timing.”
