PicoCount 4500 Item# VC-PC4500

The PicoCount 4500 is an automatic traffic counter used to collect vehicle traffic data on roadways. It collects data from up to four road tubes (rubber hose) stretched across the road. It can be used to collect data for traffic volume, vehicle classifications, and/or vehicle speeds.

The PicoCount 4500 uses new and cutting edge technologies to bring you the best 4-channel counter on the market. Since we are using components with new technology and high availability, we are able to offer our counter at a very reasonable price. Our counter design is a "life of product" design, meaning that there is no battery replacement and no repairs. The main electronics of this unit are completely sealed (air switches are accessible for repair at the factory), making it extremely weather resistant.

The PicoCount 4500 timestamps all hose hits. It can be used for volume studies or for classification/speed studies. The software (TrafficViewer Pro) has FHWA and AustRoads classifications schemes built-in, and it allows for complete customization of the schemes or creation of new schemes to meet your needs.

TrafficViewer Pro is the windows software used to download and create reports from the PicoCount 4500 data. There is no charge for the software, it's a free download.

We also have a 2-channel model, the PicoCount 2500.

Like all of our products, the PicoCount 4500 is designed, developed, and manufactured in the USA.
