Vehicle dimensioning systems 2d lidar

Product description

The Free Flow Profiler profiling system measures and classifies vehicles and objects of all types in free-flow traffic conditions. Eyesafe 2D LiDAR sensors scan objects up to 75 times a second, thereby enabling fully-automated length, width and height measurement. The vehicle speed and direction of movement are also taken into account here. The measurement data recorded can be used to generate a 3D model for each vehicle which also visualizes excessive heights, widths and lengths. In addition, the modular system setup enables functional extensions such as the counting of axles or the detection of overheated vehicle parts.

At a glance

  • Additional axle counting
  • Data output as a point cloud
  • Data history of the last 50 vehicles detected in the user interface
  • TCP/IP interface for data transmission
  • Event logging and monitoring of system status

Scanner traffic controller

The EDS-510A Gigabit managed redundant Ethernet switches are equipped with up to 3 Gigabit Ethernet ports, making them ideal for building a Gigabit Turbo Ring, but leaving a spare Gigabit port for uplink use. The Ethernet redundancy technologies, Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain (recovery time < 20 ms), RSTP/STP, and MSTP, can increase system reliability and the availability of your network backbone.

The EDS-510A Series is designed especially for communication demanding applications such as process control, shipbuilding, ITS, and DCS systems, which can benefit from a scalable backbone construction.
