Hiphen Solutions e Counter keeps track of the available spaces in each zone and updates the displays accordingly
The entry and exit points of the zones are equipped with sensors, which are typically ultrasonic or loop detectors, but can also be photoelectric sensors.
For optimized accuracy, two sensors can be used at each detection point thereby allowing detection of the vehicle’s direction. In addition, there can be multiple entry and exit points for each floor or zone allowing monitoring of even complex garage layouts. The sensors are linked via our Dupline 3-wire bus. The built-in web-server makes it easy to monitor and adjust the zone count values simply by using the browser of your laptop or smart phone.
Counting can also be combined with space-by-space monitoring to form a hybrid system. This is common in parking garages that have roof-top parking and it isn’t economically feasible to put inductive ground loops at each parking space. Rather, the entry and exit points will have vehicle sensors that will count and subtract cars entering and exiting – even cars going the wrong way.
