Trafx Vehicle Counter

Easy Installation

This innovative, reliable, compact vehicle counter uses a tiny magnetometer and advanced embedded software to detect passing vehicles. Passenger cars can be counted from up to 6 metres (20 feet) away, allowing coverage of two lanes from a roadside installation. Roadside installations are safer and easier to access than mid-lane ones. If the unit is buried at the roadside, no road cuts or special tools are required. The counter’s detection range is user-programmable, and can be adjusted for single lane or two lane counting.

Compact Design

All parts are contained in one small, rugged, weather-proof box. There are no complicated external wire loops to install and calibrate, so installation time and costs, and potential set-up errors are reduced. The TRAFx Vehicle Counter is well suited for rugged, rural and remote roads. It uses three standard “C size” alkaline batteries.
