Trafx Bicycle Counter

Key Features

• Advanced Microelectronic Design

• Optimized to Detect and Count Bikes on Trails

• Designed to be Buried

• Small and Easy to Hide — Reduces Vandalism Risk

• Long Battery Life

• Large Memory Capacity (store > 400 million counts)

• Field-Proven, Generation III Design (> 10 year history)

Designed to be Buried this counter is designed to be buried beside or in the middle of a trail, depending upon the trail’s width. When a bike passes, a tiny magnetometer coupled with advanced embedded processing software, detects and records a count. It is mainly intended for mountain bike trails, but can also be installed on regular bicycle paths under 2m (6.6ft) wide. Quick Installation

The low-power design ensures battery efficient operation, and because it is small, this counter is quick to install. It uses three standard “C size” alkaline batteries. 10.5cm (4.1in) 14cm (5.5in) Connect the counter to a PC with the TRAFx Dock to configure it. Or, use the Dock as a stand-alone "shuttle" to download data in the field. Use TRAFx DataNet to view and manage your data and produce professional reports in seconds.
