Ferromagnetic Sensor provides vehicle detection.
Press Release Summary:
January 16, 2004 - Utilizing magnetoresistive-based passive sensing technology, M-GAGEÂ® S18M detects 3-dimensional changes in Earth's magnetic field when presence of large metal objects such as car, truck, or railcar is introduced, causing sensor's output to switch. Unlike inductive loop technologies, self-contained sensor functions as receiver and has no external controller. Program commands can be entered through pushbutton on sensor or via portable programming box when sensor is inaccessible.

Patented Ferromagnetic Sensing Technology Delivers Most Reliable Vehicle Detection
Press release date: January 9, 2004
"Banner's new M-GAGE sensor has reinvented vehicle detection sensing with an easy-to-install solution that delivers greater accuracy, repeatability and durability," said Scott Springer, Banner's Manager for Strategic Market Development. "The M-GAGE is ideal for vehicle sensing applications such as detection of a vehicle at a car wash entry/exit or at a fast food drive up kiosk, a tractor trailer at a loading dock or a forklift passing through an automatic overhead door," Springer added.
"Unlike traditional inductive loop sensing technologies, the M-GAGE has no external controller, installs easily above or below grade and offers long-term trouble free sensing," Springer also said. With its completely self-contained design, the M-GAGE S18M makes sensor replacement if necessary quick and easy-with no disruption of traffic or damaging cuts to the roadway.
Simple push-button programming makes setting up the M-GAGE S18M easy. Program commands can be entered through a push button directly on the sensor or via a portable programming box when the sensor is mounted underground or is otherwise inaccessible.
The sensor is constructed of a durable ABS/polycarbonate blend molded housing and operates in temperatures from -40° C to +70° C (-40° F to +158° F) and meets IP67 and NEMA 6P environmental ratings. Pricing for the M-GAGE S18M begins at $209.00.
