Introducing the MD360P Puck
It combines a low-power battery-operated radio transceiver with a magneto resistive sensor. This creates a self-contained wireless vehicle detector that eliminates the need for running loops or cables, reducing installation time. The Puck’s sensor detects changes in the earth’s magnetic field caused by vehicle presence, producing a detect signal that the MD360 Controller receives. It’s designed for burial under the vehicle path on stable surfaces like bitumen, concrete, or compacted earth, and easily fits in a 70 mm core-drilled hole.”
The MD360P Puck works in conjunction with the MD360C Controller, you can view that here: MD360C Controller
The MD360 PUCK possesses a 1.5m sensing range, and you achieve the best detection results by mounting it as close as possible underneath the vehicle path. Therefore, it’s best to mount the PUCK in the following ways:
1. Buried in the ground alongside the passage of the vehicle.
2. Buried in the road beneath the vehicle.
Note: The battery should face downwards.
It is important that the PUCK does not move during normal operation. Any movement will result in the PUCK giving a false detection output. It is important to ensure that the tyres going over the PUCK do not put any downward pressure on the PUCK. Any movement of the PUCK will result in a false detection. When burying the PUCK, ensure that the fill material is concave so that it does not come into contact with the tyre of the vehicle
