Drive Thru Sensor USVD-4X

Ultrasonic Detectors for Drive Through Applications
Drive Through Ultrasonic Vehicle Detector
Product Info

The USVD-4X Drive Thru Vehicle Sensor uses patent pending Triangular Planar Array (TPA) technology to detect the presence of a vehicle and/or pedestrian. It is an alternative to using a photoelectric sensor, where you need to detect the presence in one plane rather than breaking a beam.

The USVD handles any drive thru operation such as fast food, banking, pharmacies, car washes and parking. For these types of applications, the USVD Drive Thru Vehicle Sensor is an alternative to photoelectric sensors or traditional vehicle loop detectors, which require the installation of a loop in pavement. The USVD is simply mounted on a post or order box, and aimed at the location where a vehicle would pass to initiate a transaction. No set-up or adjustments required.  Please Note: The USVD will detect vehicles or pedestrians.

The USVD requires 12-24 Vac/dc, and provides a form "C" set or relay contacts indicating vehicle presence. Utilising TPA technology, the detection head consists of 4 ultrasonic transducers that connect to the internal microprocessor-based control board. The detection head "scans" the expected location for a vehicle and activates its output upon detection of a vehicle.

Benefits include:

  • Installs easily above ground
  • Reduces cost
  • Streamlines operations
  • Robust design


  • Triangular Planar Array Technology
  • Aux. relay, settings for pulse on ENTRY, EXIT or BOTH
  • Output delay option for 1, 2 and 4 seconds
  • Operating range: 1 to 5 feet, 30 to 150 cm.
  • Response time: 2.0 seconds
  • Supply Voltage: 12 - 24 Vac/dc
  • Relay output configuration: 2 SPDT (form C)
  • CE compliant

Please note: The USVD will detect both vehicles and pedestrians.  If you need to differentiate between vehicles and people, we suggest you consider the Herkules 2 microwave motion detector.

Featured Products

Loop Replacement System (LRS)

The Loop Replacement System (LRS) features advanced 3-axis, magnetoresistive sensing technology. The sensor measures Earth’s magnetic field and responds to disturbances caused by ferrous objects. Three sensing elements provide magnetic field measurement in the X, Y and Z axes, improving detection sensitivity. The LRS’s exciting new technology provides a high-sensitivity, compact, and cost-effective solution for reliable vehicle detection.


ProLoop Series Two

Bircher's new faster and more sensitive ProLoop2 loop detector for industrial gates, doors, car park barrierers, toll booths, etc.


Microwave Motion Detectors

The Bircher Herkules 2 and 2E microwave motion detectors are suitable for industrial doors with rapid reaction times, they are ideal for high-speed doors, traffic light control and automated access to car parks.  The unit is suitable for mounting heights from 2.5m to 7m and operating temperatures from –30°C to +60°C.


The 2E also features additional options such as pedestrian access and "Exit Pulse" function for more rapid closing.
