Vehicle Detection Sensor


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

Available in Japanese market only

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.


Presence detection

Since the microwave module is using both Doppler shift and FMCW technology, it enables to detect the presence of vehicle as well.

One-way detection

It detects only coming vehicles and ignores leaving ones. This simple system doesn't require additional controller to operate this system.

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.

Strong against rain, wind and snow.

Strong against rain, wind and snow.

Automatic sensing adjustment enables to be used at outdoor.
