Loop Detectors (13)
A loop detector is used in conjunction with an automated gate to allow your gate to open automatically when a vehicle enters the loop that is buried in the ground. Loop detectors work when they detect a large metallic mass but they are not triggered by pedestrians or animals. Loop detectors are often used for commercial and public properties where they can either be to open the gate or alternatively to prevent the gate from closing. A scenario where they may be used would be to allow free exit from a car park. The loop detector can also be set up to trigger ticket machines, cameras or traffic lights where the vehicle is recognised on approach and the gate or barrier opens. Loop detectors are available as single or multi-channel.
