SPECS3 VECTOR: High-resolution ALPR cameras enforce average speed in up to two lanes

TraffiSection VECTOR P2P traffic cameras capture excellent images even in poor lighting conditions, such as at night. They deliver reliable readability of vehicle license plates.


High-resolution VECTOR P2P speed measurement systems enable average speed enforcement in two lanes — either in one direction only, or approaching and departing traffic simultaneously. Depending on the application, rear and/or front photographs are captured. The systems measure the average speed over a particular section of road. This not only improves traffic safety but also increases the flow of traffic.

Two high-resolution cameras read the license plates of vehicles by day and night. When lighting levels fall below a specified threshold, the VECTOR P2P traffic cameras automatically switch to night mode. The integrated IR flash helps to produce clear black and white images even at night. Images and data can be made available via various communication options, including mobile data transfer.

VECTOR P2P traffic cameras come complete with a durable weatherproof housing and according to your requirements can be installed virtually anywhere. Jenoptik can assist with location selection and installation. VECTOR P2P cameras are compatible with semi-portable SPECS3 POD (Portable OutStation Device) systems. Furthermore, a single control unit is able to receive data from multiple VECTOR cameras and from various SPECS3 locations. Installed cameras and movable PODs are easy to combine. We therefore can create and implement an individual concept for your traffic monitoring system customized to meet your requirements.

VECTOR P2P traffic cameras are approved by the British Home Office (HOTA) for speed enforcement in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
