Are you missing speeders in areas where your Police Radar can’t be used. The TDS Detector, Time Distance and Average speed measurement instrument can be used in built up areas, windy roads and roads divided by medium strips. It does not replace, but compliments a mobile radar giving any user added flexibility in how they measure a vehicles speed.
Offering both Time Distance and Average speed measurement or just straight speedometer mode the TDS Detector can be used to measure a vehicles speed in a number of ways.
In TDS mode the TDS Detector utilises three push button switches to control the start and end of time and distance measurement sequences giving the user the ability to start and end time and distance measurements separately using the TIME and DISTANCE switches or synchronise when time and distance measurements start or end using the SYNCH/LOCK switch.
To eliminate time or distance display rollover during long pursuits, both the TIME and DISTANCE displays have 5 digits giving a distance measurement capability of 99999 metres and for time, 9999.9 seconds.
In Speedometer mode the TDS Detector acts as a time averaged speedometer giving +/-
Programming the TDS Detector is simple and easy with the calibration being conducted by driving over a 500 metre distance. The calibration factor is stored in non-
For applications where a data logger or in car video are installed the TDS Detector has an integrated serial port with a selectable output format to suit either direct data output or for video applications, an output to drive a dedicated video convertor card, which overlays all data displayed on the TDS Detector onto both the video image and the video recording. An optional GPS interface is available with the video convertor card.
Self contained the TDS Detector is the ideal Time Distance and Speed measurement instrument.
Both serial data strings contain not only data on the measurement currently being taken, but also a continuous indication of the vehicles speed.
