Frequently Asked Questions

Below we have gathered and answered some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions about our VISICS solution or our company, you can of course always contact us.

System

VISICS offers continuous observation inside and outside confined spaces by implementing different kinds of cameras: widescreen, robust with infrared day/night function, 360° Dome-cameras, thermal cameras, etc.

VISICS is a modular system, consisting of digital confined space monitoring solutions which can be extended with amongst others several access control and management solutions, including tourniquets, turnstiles and barriers.

VISICS can be integrated with several third party safety solutions developed by our technical partners.

Our remote gas detection solution includes an integrated pump version for continuous monitoring of confined spaces and other locations which are difficult to access, even from a distance of up to 150 ft.

Technology

RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification and consists of two parts: a tag (attached to an object or person) and a reader. Using radio waves, the reader can capture information that is stored on a tag. To be tracked, the tag does not need to be within sight of the reader: it can even be several feet away.

General

VISICS is a mobile solution, which means it is especially developed for temporary installation during turnovers or shutdowns.

In Australia they mostly talk about ‘maintenance shutdowns’, while in the USA ‘maintenance turnaround’ is more common. When we at Access Technology Group mention a turnaround or shutdown, we always refer to a planned maintenance stop from beginning (preparations) to end (restart).

Industrial workplaces are full of confined spaces. These are restrictive areas that occasionally need to be accessed to perform certain maintenance activities, but that are not designed for continuous human presence. The space is large enough to be entered by an employee, but has restricted means for entry and exit. Think of storage tanks, vaults, wells, and utility tunnels. Confined spaces are considered dangerous places. Human presence in confined spaces should therefore carefully be monitored. This is traditionally done by confined spaces attendants, also called manhole watch. However, the use of digital confined space monitoring solutions is gaining popularity.

More information

VISICS offers added value to industries with a high risk profile and a need for increased safety, maximized productivity and lower costs in times of maintenance turnarounds and shutdowns.
