VECTOR SR, a new Spot Speed camera from Jenoptik has achieved Home Office Type Approval

Following extensive research and development, Jenoptik Traffic Solutions UK are delighted to announce that VECTOR SR has achieved HOTA, passing the rigorous evaluation and testing required to allow it to be operated as an unattended enforcement device for the measurement of vehicle speeds.

Road traffic on a bridge

Jenoptik are best known in the UK for their highly successful SPECS average speed enforcement cameras, which are now used at more than 150 sites across the UK. In responding to customer demand, the VECTOR SR solution was developed as a complementary enforcement device for the measurement of ‘spot speeds’. Where vehicle speeds need to be managed over a short section of road, VECTOR SR provides a practical and cost effective solution, allowing those responsible for road safety to address collision hot spots, whilst also providing a practical alternative for obsolete ‘wet film’ camera sites.

VECTOR SR uses the highly capable VECTOR2 integrated ANPR camera platform, working alongside Jenoptik’s own 3D tracking radar module. Both of these modules are lightweight and low power, allowing the device to be mounted on a passively safe pole – something that has not been possible before with older enforcement technologies. The system can also operate alongside the patented VECTOR IR infrared illumination module, allowing image capture on a fully dark road without any distracting flashes or dazzling puddles of light.

With no need for in-road sensors, supported by infrared illumination and light enough to mount on a passively safe pole, VECTOR SR represents a step forward in speed enforcement technology.
