TDC3-2 Side Mount  

Specifically designed for operation at on and off ramps of highways, the TDC3-2 side-mount detector provides a cost-effective yet highly reliable way to monitor ramp traffic, in particular to catch wrong-way drivers that could endanger the lives of innocent automobilists and cause traffic chaos. Device is suitable for monitoring vehicles on a single-lane at speeds of up to 100 km/h.

The TDC3-2 side mount traffic detector measures the speed of each vehicle using the Doppler shift of the reflected microwaves. The ultrasonic sensor system is used to detect the actual presence of a vehicle and vehicle separation. The PIR zones enhance the accuracy and reliability of wrong-way driver detection.

  • Multi-technology detection
    Three independent physical detection principles
  • Vehicle classification into two length categories
    Configurable length threshold, factory set at 6.5 meters (21 ft.) 
  • Auto calibration
    Auto calibration within the recommended distance from the lane with ADEC DET-Soft software
  • Detection of standing vehicles / queues
  • Detection of wrong-way drivers
  • Wide operating temperature range (–40 to +70°C | –40 to +158ºF)
    Optimal performance in all weather and climate conditions
  • Remote configuration and setup
    With ADEC DET-Soft software

ADEC TDC3-2 side mount detectors are specifically designed for a variety of traffic data collection and traffic control applications where inductive loops have been used in the past:

  • Ramp metering
  • Wrong-Way driver detection at highway entrances
  • Vehicle classification based on length
  • Individual vehicle speed up to 100 km/h
  • Vehicle counting (volume)
  • True presence and queue detection
  • Occupancy and headway / time gap measurement
