One Channel Loop Detector

LP18 is a very powerful software installed , microcontroller based device like on the other LP series devices.
LP18 is very cost effective where a single loop is needed. It is very handy ,compact and easy to install so easily adapted to your applications.

Loop Detektör LP-18

Adjustable relay hold time: You can set relay hold time after detection to 4 different values using 2 bit switches.

Adjustable Sensitivity: You can set the sensitivity to 4 different values using 2 bit switches. This feature allows you to detect/undetect less dense materials such as bicycle, motorbike etc

Isolation: The connection between the loop and the controller is isolated with a transformer. This isolation makes the system work more stable , safe and without any external interaction.

Displays: LP48 has 2 led indicators showing a) Fault: If loop is broken or deformed, is lit b) Activation: If a vehicle is detected is lit and stays lit until it goes away.

Function Keys(optional): 2 bits. That is 4 different combinations for working mode and tuning parameters are possible.

Loop Inductance
4 different modes.
a-) 3on-4on: Highest sensitivity
b-) 3on-4off: High sensitivity
c-) 3off-4on: Middle sensitivity
d-) 3off-4off: Lowest sensitivity
Frequency setting
2 different modes.
a-) 5on-6off: 80 kHz
b-) 5off-6on: 120 kHz
Output settings
4 different modes.
a-) 1on-2on Continuous hold: Output is activated when vehicle is detected and stays active until the vehicle leaves.
b-) 1on-2off Trigger on enter: Output is activated for 1 second when vehicle is detected. Another activation is possible only after vehicle leaves the loop.
c-) 1off-2on Trigger on Leaving: Output is activated for 1 second when vehicle leaves the loop.
d-) 1off-2off 4 minute hold: Output is activated when vehicle is detected. Output stays active as long as vehicle is on the loop for a maximum time of 4 minutes. After 4 minutes the output is deactivated and the system is resetted. (If the vehicle moves but staying still on the loop, the output is activated for another 4 min.
Response time
To activate : 25 ms +/- 5 ms
To deactivate : 30ms +/- 5 ms
Transformer, diode and high voltage lamps are used inside to protect the device from high voltages and noise coming from the loop antenna
