MD01 – Doppler radar detector
The MD01 microwave sensor is a last generation doppler radar with digital signal processing. It is a very versatile sensor that can be installed both above the lane and at the side of the road to detect speed, count vehicles and classify them.
The “patch” antenna has an opening angle of 12 ° x 25 ° and that is able to cover the entire width of the lane.
For an optimal performance and a good accuracy of the data it is recommended to install one MD01 per each lane, but the sensor is able to detect vehicles even on two lanes and to determine the direction of travel.
The antenna signals are analyzed by the internal microcontroller which, through digital signal processing techniques, provides the following transit data:
· Classification in length
Microwave technology, using the Doppler effect, is very accurate in detecting the speed.
MD01 has two serial lines: one RS232 for connections up to 10-15 meters and one RS485 for long distance connections. It also has a “digital output” for a possible synchronization with cameras.
In addition to the basic version MD01, the lighter and more compact MD01-L version is also available.
