Unlike conventional methods of sensor deployment, Sensei’s PoleVault remote sensing platform implements a standardized sensor interface architecture featuring intelligent device power management, local and back-haul wired or wireless communications, autonomous multi-protocol data acquisition and signal processing applicable to any remote sensing mission from intrusion detection to critical asset condition monitoring.
RAPID DEPLOYMENT LOWERS COST, REDUCES RISK
Designed specifically for rapid deployment of multiple sensor and communication technologies, PoleVault attaches in minutes to any Class-6 utility pole. Installation and commissioning may be accomplished in a fraction of the time required by traditional on-site assembly methods, reducing exposure risk to personnel, delivering lower overall deployment cost, improved serviceability and greater long-term reliability. Typical installation time from naked pole to fully operational sensor station using PoleVault’s patented deployment technology is under 1 hour for a 2-man ladder crew.
STANDARDIZED CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT
Providing greater servicability and reducing support and maintenance costs are key features of the PoleVault platform. All PoleVault units are factory assembled according to customer specified sensor payloads in strict compliance with standardized configuration and addressing protocols, ensuring that every unit is built to the same exacting specifications as its peers, including detailed as-built drawings.
RUGGED, SCALEABLE AND ADAPTABLE
Analog or digital, serial or IP, direct-powered or POE – PoleVault provides built-in power and autonomous device management including continuous health status monitoring, all enclosed and protected from the elements in a rugged IP66-class environmental housing rated for operation from -50C to +100C, well beyond the operating specs of most sensors payloads. Choose from a wide variety of pre-approved intrusion detection sensors and equipment condition monitors, or custom-configure your own sensor payload package.
INSTANT WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY
Instantly provide 25Mbps secure wifi (802.11) and Zigbee (802.15) coverage throughout the remote site with PoleVault’s built-in wireless networking platform. Establish high-speed backhaul communications with 4G primary or fail-over with support for multiple/redundant WAN connections. Easily extend the network to existing IEDs and sensors using wifi or Zigbee.
POLEVAULT + MASTERMIND ANALYTICS – SENSOR FUSION AT THE EDGE
Achieve unparalleled levels of FA/PD reliability (False Alarm vs. Probability of Detection) from security sensors and equipment monitors alike by deploying MasterMind sensor fusion signal processing software at the edge of the network. Distributed analytics and edge-based sensor fusion are the future of remote sensing automation. Available today and already integrated with a wide variety of sensors, intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) and Enterprise applications and databases, MasterMind and PoleVault deliver the solutions to your remote sensing problems.
