Vehicle Detection Sensor


Vehicle Detection Sensor VIRTUAL LOOP OVS-01CC
  • OVS-01CC

The Virtual Loop vehicle detectors are a great solution for sites where ground loops cannot be installed , such as when the road surface is damaged or unsealed, where there are cobble stones, or above drains or pipes.

The OVS-01CC can detect and count small or large moving vehicles up to 60km/h in single lane applications. The vehicle counter can similarly be mounted quickly and easily on a pole or wall at 90 degrees. Its detection area (up to eight metres) can be customized with eight range settings, five sensitivity settings and one-touch calibration. Perfectly suited for counting cars in open retail parks, or monitoring traffic in high street applications.


No in ground device required!
Possible to be used at outdoor!

High performance sensing with a combination of microwave Doppler shift and FMCW technology.

No need to burial underground.

No need to burial underground.

Since no in ground or on ground device required like induction loop. Construction period can be shorted.
