SENSiS® in detail

With the inductive wheel sensor SENSiS Detection Point (SDP) and the smart evaluation unit SENSiS Processing Unit (SPU), this axle counting system combines already proven technologies with state-of-the-art functionalities. 

SENSiS Detection Point (SDP)

The SENSiS Detection Point (SDP) functions as a smart device on the track. It combines two sensor systems – transmitter and receiver – in one housing. The sensor signal is evaluated directly on the track. A specially designed bus system transmits the digitised data directly from the trackside SDP to the SENSiS Processing Unit (SPU) located in the indoor system. 

SENSiS Processing Unit (SPU)

Unlike the SENSiS Detection Point (SDP) directly on the track, the SENSiS Processing Unit (SPU) is part of the indoor equipment. The processing unit developed by Frauscher acts as a powerful data hub. In fact, it is the central data hub between the sensors and higher-level systems.
