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-01GT detects the presence of a small or large stationary or moving vehicles within 5.5 meters while ignoring human traffic. It is easy to install; unlike ground loops, no civil works are required, and the device is mounted 500 mm from the ground. The OVS-01GT connects to an automatic gate, barrier or industrial door operator, and includes menu programming, five sensitivity settings and five human cancelling selections, all with one-button calibration. It suits simple gate activation applications as well as being part of state of the art parking systems.
No in ground device required!
Possible to be used at outdoor!
High performance sensing with a combination of microwave and ultrasonic.
Presence detection for vehicle is provided by microwave FMCW technology.
No need to burial underground.
Since no in ground or on ground device required like induction loop. Construction period can be shorted.
Strong against rain, wind and snow.
Automatic sensing adjustment enables to be used at outdoor.
Not affected by vehicle color
Technically no influence for vehicle body color.
Only detects vehicles.
Human cancellation enables to ignore human and detect vehicle only. (patent pending)
Installation height 0.5m(1.6ft.)
Operation type: Device activation
Ultrasonic sensor sensing distance: 1m(3.3ft.)
Detection area check mode
* Under normal operation, the detection area by an anctual vehicle may be smaller.
Sensor Detection Condition
There are two (2) types of sensor installations. Choose one depending on the site conditions from the followings.
The sensor will not work properly unless its installation direction, height, and operation type are correct.
