A significant advance in parking detection technology is set for April 2019. The driving force behind this is the latest offering of Inductive Loop Parking Detectors from Nortech - The 8 Series.

Nortech’s new flagship boxed detector range boasts both intuitive and innovative detection technology packaged in a compact, slimline housing - which bucks the trend of its predecessors. The 8 Series range of single and dual channel detectors is set to cater to market demand for detectors that facilitate “plug-and-play” installation whilst still allowing full site configuration using the state-of-the-art DU800 diagnostics device and mobile app for the more tech savvy.

The sleek new housing is a result of a conscious move away from the traditional 11-pin relay base to a slimline DIN Rail mount housing which exposes more physical connection options. The 8 Series detectors incorporate Nortech’s cutting-edge modular design, allowing for the expansion of channels, outputs and communication interfaces via the ingenious expansion port.  

Installation, configuration and diagnostics have been transformed by the introduction of the 8 Series range. The conventional DIP switches have been replaced by the DU800 diagnostic device which interfaces with the detector via a USB-type port on the front of the detector. The DU800 provides wireless communication – via a WLAN link - facilitating detector configuration and installation verification.

A mobile app is available for download on any Android or iOS device which presents configuration and diagnostic information in an intuitive, easy-to-read format. Any change in the configuration parameters made within the app will update the settings on the detector, resulting in a completely wireless configuration solution.  The wireless interface also allows for over-the-air firmware upgrades at the click of a button.   

The combination of sleek aesthetics and innovative technology renders the 8 Series the most intuitive and powerful parking detector yet.
