New radar-based vehicle detector

Eschenbach, August 16th 2011: ADEC Technologies today announced the release of a simple short to medium-range traffic detector. The Doppler radar-based detector stands out through its rather unique accessory. Markus Güntensperger, Product Manager at ADEC Technologies, comments “The commissioning interface of any detector often leads to a compromise between longevity and versatility. We felt that neither DIP switches nor additional connectors optimally serve the temporary nature of the commissioning task. A simple IR remote control device does.”

Besides the novel approach to set application specific parameters via IR remote, the device features a detection range up to 30 m (100 ft.) at an opening angle of 25 degrees. Output is provided via SPDT relays and a feed-back LEDs on the front. It can be powered from a wide range of supplies, accepting 5-60 VDC or 24 VAC.

Typical applications include green-phase requests at traffic lights (mobile and stationary), speed dependent detection of vehicles and auto-operation of doors and gates. ADEC Technologies is a privately-held manufacturer of non-intrusive traffic detectors based in Switzerland. For more information please contact Markus Güntensperger at +41-55-214-2400 or via e-mail at
