Vehicle Loop Detectors, Loops, and Loop Accessories for Gate Operators & Other Equipment

Free Exit or Entrance for Automated Gates and Doors: Loop detectors and loops may be used for a variety of applications. Vehicle loop detectors are frequently used to provide free entrance and/or free exit for traffic. Wire loop detector directly to gate operator or overhead door, connect to buried loop, and allow larger metal objects which drive over loop to trigger the gate or door to open, or close. Loops remain practically invisible, buried beneath gravel, asphalt, or concrete driveways. Vehicle loop detectors are a safe and reliable way of controlling an assortment of equipment.

Safety Devices for Automated Gates and Doors: Vehicle loops and loop detectors are also frequently used as safety devices. Loop detectors are wired or plugged directly to the gate operator or overhead door. Loops are buried directly under the automated gate or door. When a vehicle, or other large metal device, is present, a signal is sent preventing the automated gate or door from moving. Use in conjunction with automated gates safety photobeams, gate bumpers, and gate safety edges. Use with Linear/OSCO™ Swing Gate Operators, Slide Gate Operators, and Barrier Gate Operators.

Versatility of Vehicle Loop Detectors and Loops: Use with nearly any brand of gate operator, overhead door, or other equipment. Plug-in detector is used on control boards that offer the simplicity of plugging in loop detectors such as the Linear/OSCO operators utilizing the APeX control board.

The EDI Loop Detectors are available for 12-24VAC or DC. applications. The Plug-in Detector is used on Linear/OSCO operators with the APeX control board. Loops are available as Loop Wire Kits with Sealant for concrete or asphalt applications, or Preformed Loops for all uses including gravel applications (PVC loop recommended for gravel applications). Choose one of the following common applications for details:
