Vehicle Detection System


OPTEX’s OVS-01GT is a vehicle detection sensor that does not require burial. Unlike loop coils, there is no need to bury it underground, so it’s not necessary dig into the ground for installation or maintenance, reducing construction time and cost. Additionally, its human cancellation enables to ignore human and detect vehicle only. (patent pending)

In India, it’s common to use loop coils for vehicle detection at car barriers, swing and slide gates in parking lots. Because loop coil needs to be buried underground, it requires digging work and dedicated machineries for construction. Additionally, construction work makes noise, so consideration is needed in such places that requires a 24-hour quiet environment such as hospitals.

In a case of loop coils, not only regular maintenance but also a case that something goes wrong with the coils, road traffic must be stopped and the ground dug up to check. Lanes should remain closed during maintenance, causing issues with vehicle traffic. The whole process may go on for a few days till the loop is set up properly.

Key Features of OVS-01GT

  • Installation without groundwork: The OVS-01GT detects in a range of 5.5-meter range without relying on in-ground devices.

  • Enhanced Human Cancelling Capability: To ensure exceptional performance and ability to filter human presence. This improvement significantly reduces false alarms and ensures superior overall performance.

  • Detection Range: Detecting vehicles at a speed from 2 to 20km/h and offers an impressive 18-feet detection range, effectively covering a broader area, thereby enhancing security and access control.

  • Temperature: Operating in between -30 to 50 C range.

  • Strong against rain and wind: Automatic sensing adjustment enables to be used at outdoor.
