User Manual (rev 4.0 PDF, 7.31 MB)
The PCN-1001 is a compact and autonomous device based on non-contact stereoscopic vision technology. It has been designed to count passengers entering and exiting the doorways of buses and trains. It can also be used to count people as they enter or leave buildings or any other area with restricted access.
The stereoscopic cameras capture images of the area below the device (Detection Area); the inclusion of high luminosity infrared LED emitters allows this to be achieved even in complete darkness.
The PCN-1001 has to be installed so that the front panel is placed horizontal to the floor. To achieve this, the angle between the front panel and the enclosure can be adjusted from 0° to 20° (or by using an extender up to 45°, the extender also increases the protection of the rear side). Thanks to these characteristics the PCN-1001 can be mounted in a variety of locations, even on non-horizontal surfaces.
The PCN-1001 analyses objects passing within the detection area, considering height, shape and direction. After determining if an object is a person entering or leaving, the incoming or outgoing values are stored accordingly, along with time and date information. This information can be immediately available via RS485 or downloaded at a later date for analysis.
The PCN-1001 can be stand-alone or connected together with a vehicle server (the Control Unit) that can pre-process, store and upload information from the all vehicle passenger counters.
