Vehicle Sensor

The Vehicle Sensor is a probe style, buried sensor used to detect traffic along a roadway. It can be used in conjunction with a 12 volt power supply and Alert Base Station in either a Vehicle Alert configuration (single) or a speed and direction Vehicle Alert configuration (two probes). The probe sensors come with 50 feet of cable.

There are two configurations for vehicle sensors.  The first uses just one vehicle sensor.  A second configuration uses two vehicle sensors set about 10 meters apart.  In this second configuration, the user receives information on speed and direction of travel.

Bury sensor approximately 15 cm deep.  Ensure that the cable leading from the sensor to the base station is secure because movement in the sensor cable could cause false signals.
