Detect on Stop Granted Trademark Status

 

Detect on Stop, or DOS, an EMX exclusive feature, was first utilized in our Ultraloop Ult-Din vehicle loop detector.  It’s purpose is to prevent false gate and overhead door openings by triggering an output only when a vehicle has come to a complete stop on the loop for at least a second.  And, just recently, Detect on Stop was granted trademark status!  You can expect to see this feature, the only technology of it’s kind available on the world market, in many of our future products, where it will give you and your applications a major advantage if you want to ignore cross traffic in tight spaces.

EMX’s Ultraloop-Ult-Din Vehicle Loop Detector Offers the Abilitiy to Differentiate Between Stopped and Moving Vehicles

 The Ultraloop-Ult-Dinvehicle loop detector from EMX Industries, Inc., features the same capabilities you’ve come to expect from EMX products in the past, with a new revolutionary component: Detect on Stop, which detects whether a vehicle has stopped or is still moving.

Detect on Stop

Often it’s not enough to just know that a vehicle is present; the ability to differentiate between stopped and moving vehicles is essential to things like fast food restaurants, which measure average drive thru wait times and to whom the distinction between stopped and moving vehicles is necessary, and parking lot exit gates, which should only open when a vehicle is ready to leave and not when a car simply drives past the gate.  Likewise , industrial overhead doors should not open every time a forklift drives past. Detect on Stop, the only technology of it’s kind on the world market, only triggers the Ultraloop-Ult-Din when a vehicle has stopped for at least a second, thereby eliminating false openings and incorrect data measurements.  See Detect on Stop in action.

Ultraloop-Ult-Din

Along with the Detect on Stop output, the Ultraloop-Ult-Din includes ten sensitivity levels which can be easily adjusted via the sensitivity display, allowing for the optimal setting depending on the size of the loop and the type of vehicles expected to be detected.  The Ult-Din’s Automatic Sensitivity Boost, which increases sensitivity after initial detection, helps prevent dropout when detecting high bed vehicles; after the vehicle has exited the loop, sensitivity returns to normal.  The frequency display will help select the best frequency for the loop to operate on while the crosstalk display will identify any crosstalk occurring between adjacent loop detectors.

The Ult-Din is easy to install, snapping on to the DIN rail housing and taking up little space in the control box. Compatible with most power supplies worldwide, from 12VDC to 24VAC, the Ult-Din saves on energy thanks to it’s low heat dissipation and electrical load requirements.

Easily Adjust Sensitivity on Any Installation with the EMX ULTRA V-2 D-TEK Vehicle Loop Detector

Vehicle Loop DetectorThe ULTRA V-2 D-TEK Vehicle Detector from EMX Industries, Inc., is a highly advanced and feature-rich vehicle loop detector in the ULTRA series, a collection of plug-in modules which feature the spectacular ULTRAMETER. With the ULTRAMETER, sensitivity adjustment, initial setup and installation, and ongoing operation and troubleshooting, are all made to be as intuitive, quick and hassle-free as possible.

With the ULTRAMETER, when a vehicle is on the loop, a single-digit number LED display indicates the appropriate sensitivity setting from 0 to 9 needed to detect the vehicle (the ULTRA series vehicle detectors offer 10 sensitivity settings).

If the sensitivity is too low for the vehicle in question, you’ll still see the sensitivity level which is required, but you’ll notice that the detector indicator is not going off. This provides instant feedback for how you should setup your vehicle loop detector, and eliminates all guesswork and frustration.

In addition to providing this seamless setup, the ULTRAMETER also will showcase when crosstalk in multi-loop systems is interfering. And since the ULTRA V-2 D-TEK vehicle loop detector has four different operating frequencies, you’ll then be able to instantly solve the problem by changing settings.

Additional features on the ULTRA V-2 D-TEK include automatic sensitivity boost (ASB), delay, secondary output functions, fail-safe and fail-secure, infinite and normal presence, and more. It’s easy to work with, and quickly and easily installed. As a plug-in module, it’s convenient and compact, but also full-featured and highly capable.

The ULTRA V-2 D-TEK is also compatible with a wide variety of gate operators, including from brands such as Chamberlain/Elite, Advanced Access Automation, All-O-Matic, Intelligate Systems, Viking Access, SECOM and Linear.

The EMX ULTRA Series of Vehicle Loop Detectors with ULTRAMETER Functionality

EMX Industries, Inc., produces a number of different vehicle loop detectors and systems, including the ULTRA series, with several individual models. Each ULTRA series vehicle loop detector includes a very special and unique feature which sets it apart from the competition, and enables amazingly swift and easy installation, setup and ongoing control — the ULTRAMETER.

The ULTRAMETER eliminates all of the hassle with sensitivity selection. When a vehicle is in the loop, a number will be displayed via an LED which ranges from 0 to 9, for the 10 sensitivity settings which these vehicle loop detectors offer.

The indicated number is the appropriate setting needed to detect the vehicle which is positioned in the loop. If the setting is below what the vehicle would require, you will not see the LED detector indicator going off, and you’ll be able to instantly adjust the sensitivity setting to what is required.

Additionally, the ULTRAMETER can be used in several other ways to fine-tune and properly manage the performance of your vehicle loop detectors. For example, when there’s crosstalk between two channels or loops, you’ll be able to instantly see this and then manually adjust your settings, eliminating interference and problems with multiple loop applications.

Each ULTRA series vehicle loop detector also provides four operating frequency settings, so you’ll gain even greater flexibility and further capability in preventing crosstalk.

The ULTRA series from EMX includes three models. This begins with the ULTRA D-TEK vehicle loop detector, with a compact, energy efficient and cost-effective design, and features such as automatic sensitivity boost (ASB), lightning and surge protection, frequency counter, loop fail output, and more.

The ULTRA II D-TEK provides the same functionality for operator controls which require a dry contact relay input. The ULTRA V-2 D-TEK provides a second output, and provides a solid-state output indicating vehicle presence. The second output can then be used for presence, loop fault, or pulse on entry and exit.

On our main website, EMXInc.com, you’ll find all of the information you need on the EMX Ultra Series of vehicle loop detectors, including full product specifications and capabilities. You can even watch a demo video of the ULTRAMETER in action, to see for yourself just how great this functionality really is.
