This system, pioneer at the international level, responds to a demand from the industry and society to know how accurate the number of people who are in the interior of an enclosure in real time, with approved, legalized and supported technology by the institutions.

He City of Madrid It was the place chosen by the innovative business group Capacity control to present Viabox ML1, the first system people counter officially homologated by the Spanish Metrology Centre)CEM), after overcoming the demanding requirements of the EU review of kind in Spain carried out by the inspection body.

Among other processes, Viabox ML1 exceeded the required precision parameters stop know people that are in the inside of an enclosure (with an error of less than 3%); resistance to changes in temperature (from - 10 to + 65 ° C), humidity; variations of lighting and sound, as well as storage of data with security guarantees.

Design and manufacture Spanish

With patent from October 2016 and officially approved in December last year, Viabox ML1 located back to Spain as a leader in the field of legal metrology, to develop the first system people counter real-time approved internationally.

This development responds to the ten years of work of the Group business innovative (AEI) Control of capacity, consisting of distributors enrolled in the registry of metrological Control as Age2, Comunicàlia group, Prosegur Y Securitasmanufacturers, repairers and entities of innovation, with the goal of promoting and encouraging technology on the control of people; promote cooperation between public and private; promote training activities aimed at users managers of premises with capacity, as well as technological products and services, as well as improve and develop the competitiveness of the Spanish metrology sector.

The installation of Viabox ML1, which may vary according to the venue and if it is for a control in building height, consists of a log entry of access (a ticket, tickets of events, NFC tag, card, beef or e-ticket on your mobile) and a reader device label TAS.

Read the code of these tags is assigned to each person for identification of access to the site, as well as output (down to the person who leaves him through also the reading of the code). Add to this the device counter, which reports real-time control of capacity, which communicates with the readers of centrally through connection points.
