The ATG Series from Reno A&E Offers Accurate Vehicle Counts for Parking, Toll & Access Control Revenue Systems


The ATG Series Detectors (Model DL-ATG Anti-Tailgating Detector with Directional Logic and Model L-ATG Single Channel Anti-Tailgating Loop Detector) count bumper-to-bumper passenger vehicles, detect multiple vehicles entering or exiting during a single gate cycle, provide single- or dual-lane directional counting, can count vehicles accurately even if a metal object is placed in the loop area, prior to a vehicle arriving over the loop detection zone, and accurately audit revenue collection at parking facilities. To learn how Reno A&E’s ATG Series Detectors can help you avoid lost revenue, contact RAE Sales Manager Carl Zabel at carlz@renoae.com or 775-870-4499.
