Vehicle counters are used to keep accurate
count of the number of cars in a parking with limited capacity. This
involves counting the cars that enter the parking as well as counting
the cars that exit the parking.
There are two types of counters used as
vehicle counters. Selecting the right vehicle counter depends on the
setup and purpose of counting.
Single Counter Method:
|If you just want to keep track of the
vehicles remained in the parking, you may use the
plus-minus counter. With this counter you push the blue add button when
a car enters the parking and you push the red negative button for each
car exiting the parking. The number displayed is the number cars
remained in the parking. When activated, an audible "beeper" sounds
every count to verify that a count has been registered. All electronic
components provide a long life counter with no moving parts to wear out.
The counter is manufactured from impact-resistant plastic, combining
lightweight with outstanding durability.

Dual Counter Method:
In addition to the count of cars in a parking,
you may also need to keep track of the total number of cars entered and the
total number of cars exited the lot. This is where you use a dual counter
|One counter will be marked and
dedicated to the cars entering the parking and another counter will be
marked and used for the cars exiting the parking.
Mechanical desktop counters are the preferred choice for this
method of counting. The base of the counter has two screw holes allowing
you to mount the counters permanently on a table. You may also use
additional counters to keep track of specific type of cars such as
trucks and busses.
