Latest advance in parking detection technology
A significant advance in parking detection technology is set to be launched next month.
The driving force behind this is the latest offering of Inductive Loop Parking Detectors from Nortech International - The 8 Series.
Nortech’s new flagship boxed detector range boasts both intuitive and innovative detection technology packaged in a compact, slimline housing.
The 8 Series range of single- and dual-channel detectors is set to cater to market demand for detectors that facilitate ‘plug-and-play’ installation while still allowing full-site configuration using the state-of-the-art DU800 diagnostics device and mobile app for the more tech savvy.
The sleek new housing is a result of a conscious move away from the traditional 11-pin relay base to a slimline DIN Rail mount housing which exposes more physical connection options.
The 8 Series detectors incorporate Nortech’s cutting-edge modular design, allowing for the expansion of channels, outputs and communication interfaces via the expansion port.
Installation, configuration and diagnostics have been transformed by the introduction of the 8 Series range.
The conventional DIP switches have been replaced by the DU800 diagnostic device, which interfaces with the detector via a USB-type port on the front of the detector. The DU800 provides wireless communication – via a WLAN link - facilitating detector configuration and installation verification.
A mobile app is available for download on any Android or iOS device which presents configuration and diagnostic information in an intuitive, easy-to-read format.
Any change in the configuration parameters made within the app will update the settings on the detector, resulting in a completely-wireless configuration solution. The wireless interface also allows for over-the-air firmware upgrades at the click of a button.
