Automatic Data Recorder

Data Collection

The Peek Traffic ADR-1000 Plus provides ease of use and optimal functionality as a portable counter/classifier. Optional internal sensor modules allow the ADR-1000 Plus 10 monitor inputs using loops, piezos or contact closures. A removable PCMCIA memory card is also available to further extend storage capability.

Available data types include one or more combinations of per-vehicle records, per lane data, binned vehicle classification by axle, speed, length, gap, or headway. Vehicles may be classified according to the FHWA Scheme “F” or a user-defined custom classification scheme.

Wafer-barrier air switches eliminate the worry of internal water exposure from failed road tubes. Peek Traffic’s weatherproof housing provides a barrier against the elements of nature, helping Peek Traffic to set the standard for durability and longevity in our entire ADR line of counter/classifiers. Quality·control is based on ISO9000 standards of operation, enabling Peek Traffic 10 provide environmental chamber tested, inspected, high-qualify products.

The ADR-1000 Plus is fully compatible with the ADR-2000 and the ADR-3000. The entire range of ADR products operate with the Windows software packages available from Peek Traffic.

Optional Features

The Peek Traffic ADR-1000 Plus is a self-contained, portable automatic vehicular traffic counter/classifier that can be set up and operated via the integral smart keypad and interactive display. Alternatively, full operational control can be granted either remotely or directly in the field via a computer with appropriate software.

Easy to use menus allow configuration flexibility. User-defined setup files reduce confusion and operator errors. Collected data is held in the device, secure from unintentional erasure or loss.

Quality Assurance Testing

Each unit is individually tested for correct operation during a computer controlled environmental chamber test cycle, based on the NEMA TS/2 standards. All input circuits have been designed and tested 10 the NEMA TS-2 standards for surge (lightning) protection.

Support Software

Of importance to the user of modern counters/classifiers is the operating and reporting software, which supports, controls and formats the resultant data. A user-friendly Windows software package is available to complement the Peek ADR-1000 Plus. This software is the Traffic Operations Processing Software (TOPS) program, which is available from Peek Traffic.

The TOPS program provides multi-file processing, stores data files into a single database for easy file sharing among TOPS users, allows for edit and preview of reports before printing, provides for both ADR and 241 data processing protocols, enables remote or local setup of Peek ADR units and collection of data by direct manual connection or by the added functionality of automatic telemetry polling of field sites via modem connection (auto polling and weigh-in-motion support are add-in options). The TOPS program reads all files and generates a suite of daily, weekly and monthly reports. A user definable classification function, within the program, provides the ability to customize classification and to transfer the new scheme to the Peek ADR-1000 plus. Processed data may be exported to various other software packages.
