AMC-CD-2 Human Occupancy Detector

Item ID: AMC-CD-2
Brand: Armstrong Monitoring
Description

For organizations involved in cross border shipments, stowaways can present an increasingly costly problem. Aside from the serious security concerns, under current law carriers often become liable for a fine, plus the stowaways’ housing, food, healthcare, supervision, legal representation and repatriation costs. This situation has led the Armstrong Monitoring Corporation to develop the AMC-CD-2 Human Occupancy Detector. By monitoring for elevated CO2 levels in shipping containers, a reliable indication of human occupancy is provided, allowing early detection at the point of departure.

The AMC-CD-2 uses state-of-the- art infrared sensing technology to provide accurate, parts per million indication in a low maintenance package. An internal pump extracts an air sample through a customized probe assembly. Numerous attachments allow samples to be taken through small apertures or rubber seals in a wide variety of vessels, without compromising integrity of either container or cargo.

Time means money, and when cargo terminals are loading two or three containers per minute, the AMC-CD-2 permits quick and easy testing, realizing savings in both the short and long term. The sensor uses a beam of infrared light to probe a sample of air. The amount of light absorbed is a function of the concentration of CO2 in the sample. The process is specific to the absorption bands of CO2, and will therefore not respond to any other gases.

Armstrong’s AMC-CD-2 has been credited with saving countless lives through rescue facilitated by the rapid detection of concealed individuals. In addition to being a powerful analytical tool, the AMC- CD-2 has proven itself as a strong deterrent to incidents of human concealment in locations where the technology has been deployed.
