The OVS-01GT from OPTEX is designed to reliably detect the presence of a stationary or moving vehicle while also having the ability to ignore most human traffic. It also eliminates the hassle of a ground loop. No more concrete cutting required. The OVS-01GT can be mounted 2 to 3 feet off the ground and can detect both small and large vehicles. Its detection area can be customized easily, and without the need for lifts or ladders. The OVS-01GT is a versatile sensor for a variety of applications, including security gates, parking structures, banks, pharmacies, QSRs and industrial doors.
