The AutoMag Car Counter is a single-sided, battery operated system with a 2 metre detection distance. This design is very easy to install, there is no need to dig up the road surface as the unit is placed beside the road. It counts cars by sensing the change in magnetic field as they pass. It is specific for vehicles and does not detect pedestrians. It has sensitivity control circuitry that enables the user to configure the unit for detection distances.
