The AutoMag Car Counter is a single-sided, battery operated system with a 2 metre detection distance. With only one protective housing to mount by the roadside, the unit is very easy to install as there are no external loops or cables to burry under the road surface. Vehicles are detected using magneto-resistive technology to sense a change in the ambient magnetic field.  The device is specific for vehicles and does not detect pedestrians. A rotary dial allows the user to adjust sensitivity over various distances.
