2. Control of the barrier in an access controller
CARDET-301 can detect the exact timing of passing a vehicle in front of the access control device. In the case of bump to bump traffic, CARDET-301 generates an accurate trigger signal unlike a loop coil for the access controller to handle the barrier bar.
A CARDET-301 has various functions inside of adjusting delay, number of filters and sensitivity to find out the optimal mode for the road situation.
A loop coil cannot detect the exact timing of passing of the edge of a vehicle, meanwhile, the digital proximity sensor and FS magnetic sensor in a CARDET-301 can find out the edge of a car accurately.
For the special case of the road for large sized trucks and containers, the dual sensor package for access control is prepared.
Above short movie shows the control system of a gate that was installed in Singapore. CARDET-101 opens the gate, which was buried under the pavement and CARDET-301 closes the gate when the vehicle completely get out. CARDET series is the best solution that replace the LOOP COIL with low cost and high reliability.
2-1 Special Vehicle Detection Equipment
Trucks or trailers have a plenty of empty space on the side and lower body, so it is necessary to hold the detection signal until the vehicle completely pass out, when controlling the parking barrier.
Special Vehicle Detection Equipment enables the system to sustain the parking barrier open until the large-sized vehicle completely passes out.
3. Car detection for a drive-in-restaurant
Usually in drive-in-cafe or restaurant, number of cars wait and go with bump to bump situation. Conventional loop coil cannot distinguish the two vehicles with a close interval. CARDET-301 is the perfect sensor for this kind of restaurant and moreover it can easily be embedded in a menu box on the shoulder of the access road.
A CARDET-301 does not be influenced by snow, rain and humans, also it has no worry about being destroyed by a snowplow.

We have also V-COUNTER-LD model for the wide road (max. 10 meter or 7 meters depend on the configuration of installation)
6. Detection of the direction of a vehicle
Using a direction detector, user can easily build up an user's own system for various functions. For example, it is possible to take a picture only when a vehicle exit on the two-way-traffic road. It uses two CARDET-301 sensors, and has two relays for the easy interface for two jobs for in and out respectively.
Direction detector also can use two CARDET-LD sensor for a wide two-way-traffic road which is impossible for the conventional products.
Direction detector has two independent relays for the functions of coming-in and going-out respectively, so two functions can be easily interfaced and executed.
7. Compact Vehicle Detector : CV-DETECTOR
CV-DETECTOR measures the length of the approaching vehicle precisely, and automatically distinguishes a compact vehicle from various kinds of car. Many of the country have a discount policy of parking fee for a compact car to encourage saving energy. In Korean law, one of the necessary coundition to be classified as a compact vehicle is that it has a shorter length of around 3.8m.
CV-DETECTOR has a special kind of edge detection structure for precisely measuring the entire length of a vehicle.
It uses 2 CARDET-LDs, 1 CARDET-101 and a Signal Processing Controller. CV-DETECTOR also has a function of making a trigger signal for the LPR system, so user does not need to install an additional loop coil for triggering the LPR system.
