Icoms detector replaces up to nine loops
First published in Intertraffic Innovation News - June 29, 2020
IRD subsidiary Icoms Detections has developed a new, high-precision radar that is capable of detecting movement and presence on multiple lanes and can emulate up to nine inductive loops per radar. It has the capability to detect approaching vehicles and bicycles as well as their presence at the stop-line. The new TMB-134 is an intersection radar tailored to crossings with two or three lanes in one direction and perfectly fits intersections with dedicated phases for right-turn and left-turn lanes. It integrates approach and stop-line presence detection for enhanced traffic light management. If a vehicle at the stop-line does not leave for any reason, the TMB-134 maintains the signal to allow the controller to extend the green light.
The TMB-134 is delivered ready to install, including cable, mounting bracket, screws, and bolts. A detachable cable at the rear of the enclosure simplifies installation. The radar is provided with software for the configuration of the virtual loops and can, if necessary, communicate directly with the controller using the RS-485 serial communication line instead of dry contact relays.
