Paramax Integrated Systems design, integrate and deliver specialised technology solutions worldwide specifically designed for targeted markets including the railway industry.
Infrastructures, particularly rail systems, are critical to a nation's economy. Every day millions of commuters use these systems to get to work and businesses rely on them to move goods, with each relying on those responsible to ensure their safe passage. Safeguarding of these infrastructure systems presents serious challenges for protecting passengers, employees, cargo and the vital network structure.
Paramax developed a front-line technology solution in response to these needs. Our uniquely integrating proven fit-for-purpose technology includes Vidient Systems video analytics, PSI fibre optic Securemat system and our DSX access control technology Trac:vue delivers proven results immune to false alarms.
Protecting against accidents, vandalism, theft and attacks is a daunting task for rail and transit operators. Of particular concern are mass transit systems. Intrusions on the track and into tunnels, whether authorised, accidental or malicious, have serious consequences, including safety, occupational health as well as liability concerns to the disastrous impact of an attack.
Those who intend to self-harm, disrupt, deface or destroy have easy access to tunnels and other secure areas. And intrusions are not the only risks. Rail and transit operators face theft, vandalism and graffiti at equipment and supply depots. Abandoned objects at stations also represent additional risks.
Although suitable for many applications Trac:vue has a proven record in railway tunnels. Intrusion detection technology based on laser, thermal, microwave or vibration sensors and conventional video analytics solutions fail miserably in rail and transit environments because the train motion disrupts their ability to detect. Trac:vue is designed specifically for the needs of these facilities.
What makes Trac:vue truly unique is its ability to recognise the presence of a train and self-adjust so that it ignores the visual affects of the train's motion and the presence of humans inside the cars.
This virtually eliminates false alarms, maintaining the viability of the system in all conditions. By automatically sensing the presence of a train and tuning out its effects, the system provides full-time protection against track and tunnel intrusions.
Coupled with the proven technology of fibre optic ground based sensors, and integrated with advanced access control technology, Trac:vue widens the operational scope by identifying authorised staff and contractors and allows access without raising an alarm.
Unauthorised access however will be immediately identified, recorded and an alert sent to first responders.
