Product Update – New OPTEX OVS-02GT Vehicle Sensor

PRODUCT UPDATE - New Optex OVS-02GT Vehicle Sensor.

Available Mid-March.

Detect the presence of vehicles with high accuracy by using the next generation above-ground vehicle sensors with flexible range.

The OPTEX OVS-02 is the perfect sensing solution for automatic gates and barriers as it is easy to install above-ground on a wall, pole, or barrier housing, replacing the ground loop and functioning as a “Virtual Loop”. 


This makes it suitable for almost any application. Especially when there is a difficulty in the installation environment like the type of road surface or restrictions due to legislation. The sensor can be used for traffic management, vehicle protection, and security purposes.

Reliable and flexible vehicle detection

The OVS-0GT presence and activation vehicle detection sensor for automatic gates, barriers and industrial doors offers excellent short- and long-range detection up to 8 meters and a wide-angle adjustment of 90º to 95º. 

It detects stationary or moving vehicles up to 35km/h of all materials and has a visible indicator light. It suits simple gate activation applications as well as being part of state-of-the-art parking systems and is available in black (standard) and grey (optional).


Easy above-ground installation.

The above-ground installation makes it a less invasive solution for a variety of locations where a ground loop is not possible or even allowed. After simply mounting the sensor 50cm from the ground on a barrier housing, wall or pole, the setup can easily be performed via a dedicated app called “Virtual Loop” on a mobile device like smartphone or tablet with only a few buttons.
