The OVS-01GT vehicle detection sensor is a dual technology solution designed for gate, barrier or industrial door automation. Mounted above the ground, it will detect a vehicle arriving at a speed of 2 to 20km/h and then stopping. The detection is ensured using a combination of microwave and ultrasonic wave sensing technology. In many cases, it can replace a ground loop sensor or video based sensors.
Installation without groundwork
The OVS-01GT vehicle sensor detects small and large vehicles within a 5.5m range without the use of an in-ground device like a ground loop. There is no need for civil engineering work for mounting the sensor. This makes the installation non disruptive and an ideal replacement to induction loops in areas where ground work is impossbile or restricted. Calibrting the sensor is easy with quick distance and sensitivity adjustment settings.
Reliable detection in any lighting conditions
The technology used in the OVS-01GT vehicle sensor is a combination of microwave and ultrasonic The microwave sensor can detect the presence of a vehicle based on FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave). This technology as opposed to video-based vehicle detection systems is not affected by lighting conditions.
For gate, barrier, industrial door activation
The OVS-01GT has been designed to activate the operator of an automatic gate, barrier or industrial door using a relay output. The vehicle detector provides reliable detection even in harsh environments such as dust, rain, and snow; it has a built-in heater allowing an operation range up to -30 degree Celsius.
The OPTEX OVS-series are the perfect solution for many applications and locations. The vehicle sensors detects motorised vehicles like cars, vans, trucks and more for presence detection and activation (OVS-01GT) and counting purposes(OVS-01CC). In september 2023 the OVS-02GT is launched to complement the series. This sensor has a larger detection range to extend the possibilities of this above-ground ground loop replacing solution.
The sensor services in many applications, such as parkings, perimeter entrances and exits, loading docks, traffic management and more. For the best solutions for your site you can contact us via our enquiry form.
