Vehicle Loops & Loop Detectors

Vehicle Loops and Loop Detectors are used to detect the presence of a vehicle to open a gate, or as a safety device to prevent the gate from closing on a vehicle in its path.

Vehicle Loop Detectors are available with two types of connectivity; plug-in and wire harness. Direct Plug-In Loop Detectors are designed for specific control boards while the Wire Harness or Mountable Socket is universal fit.

Vehicle Loops are available as Direct Burial or Cut-In. In general, Direct Burial Loops are placed below the surface prior to application of asphalt or concrete while Cut-In Loops are installed within a slot sawed into the existing surface.

Probe Style Vehicle Sensorsare self-contained units including a loop detector and sensing probe or wand. This type of vehicle motion detector is easy to install however, it is not recommended as a safety loop.
