Model 316-33457 Stop Bar Control Sensor
Southwest Microwave's Model 316-33457 Volumetric Stop Bar Control Sensor
can be combined with traditional aircraft stop bar safety systems to
ensure the reliable, effective detection of aircraft or vehicle movement
between taxiway and active runway. Operating in K-band frequency, this
bi-static microwave link is engineered for applications where external
radio frequency (RF) radiation is prevalent, offering enhanced RF
interference (RFI) resistance not possible with X-band microwave links.
antenna beam width of approximately 3.5° in the horizontal and vertical
planes, the Model 316-33457 will operate at long ranges and within very
narrow corridors to provide unmatched detection performance.
Model 316-33457 features enhanced electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
circuitry that prevents electromagnetic interference (EMI) between the
sensor's own energy signal and RF emissions from aircraft and airport
radar control systems, microwave intrusion detection systems and other
RF-based equipment. Additionally, Model 316-33457 features a unique
RFI/EMI shielded radome for added protection against external RF
radiation, making it an exceptional on-ground traffic solution.
band receiver design provides unmatched detection performance by
alarming on partial or complete beam interruption, increase or decrease
in signal level or jamming by other transmitters. Automatic Gain Control
(AGC) allows the receiver to compensate for varying site or
environmental conditions. Six field-selectable crystal controlled
modulation channels with narrow band filtering allow multiple Model
316-33457 sensors to be used in tandem without mutual interference.
sensor's transmitter and receiver are packaged in compact weatherproof
housings, designed to withstand harsh temperature and environmental
extremes, and to provide optimal resistance to wind loading.
