AIM is a specially constructed, heavy-duty four-wire pressure sensing mat with conductive plates, designed to be used in both underground and outdoor rail stations, tunnels and grade crossings to protect against unauthorized intrusions or to alert a train operator if a vehicle is stopped on the track. AIM is a simple, normally open,normally closed contact switch embedded in a ruggedized self-extinguishing presence sensing mat. When the specified minimum impact weight(adjusted to the customers’requirements) is applied to the mat, the contact closes. This sends a signal to the mat and/or network controller which, in turn,sends an intrusion alert notification to a specified location. Each mat presents four wires tothe controller. This provides theredundancy required to monitor
the wiring for open circuits due to physical damage to the wires while continuingto monitor pressure changes caused by movements of individuals and vehicles.
Mats are custom made to fit your specific protection area and use a quickdisconnect for easy individual replacement.
An AIM zone can range from as little as 6 feet (1.83 meters) up to 150 feet (45meters). AIM can be easily installed between tracks or a street grade crossing formaximum detection zones.
Security operators can follow someone’s movements from zone to zone usingintegrated AIM mats with our X4-1800 Network Interface Controller andTransitVUE Professional Notification Software.
The AIM network controllers and software interface with virtually any new or existing security system for camera control and external passenger notification.The sensing capability is completely immune from the weather, environmental conditions and train vibrations, eliminating false alarms.
