Easy ZELT - Bicycle Counter
- For temporary counting (<6 months)
- High accuracy
- Quick installation - no engineering work
- Automatic data transmission - 3G
- Battery powered (2 years)
Eco-Counter’s Easy- ZELT Inductive Loop system is the perfect solution for temporary (one to six months) off-street bike counting. The system uses single-use adhesive loops rather than permanent loops that are cut into the path, making it easy to install and simple to move from one location to the next. The ZELT loop precisely analyzes the electromagnetic signature of each bicycle wheel using 13 differentiation criteria. The ZELT’s unique SIRIUS algorithm allows the system to detect all types of bicycles, with extreme precision.
- Turn-key solution
- Measures the direction of travel
- Seamless data transmission to our software
- Battery powered – 2-year battery life
- Simple installation - no engineering work
- Works in all weather conditions
- Speed classification (optional)
Simple & Robust
The Easy-ZELT is an economic temporary counting solution. The system installs very easily and is ideal for bridges and cycling infrastructure trials (1-6 months). The system is robust; the loops are essentially adhered to the ground. A number of trials that involved the Easy-ZELT system have counted more than 1 million cyclists without requiring replacement loops.
Justify New Infrastructure
In Vancouver, two Easy-ZELT systems were installed to monitor cycling volumes on two provisional bicycle lanes. The controversial trial involved removing one vehicular lane on the Burrard Bridge in order to provide space for dedicated cycling facilities. The data collected over a 12-month period highlighted a significant increase of the cyclists volumes on the bridge. Following the trial, the new cycling infrastructure became permanent, replacing the former roadway.
Installation of an Easy-ZELT
