    The M680 is the latest generation of traffic count/classification device based on inductive loop technology. Available in a variety of configurations and supporting a number of additional interface options, the M680 offers unparalleled flexibility from a single platform. From monitoring of a single lane traffic through to 8 lane motorways with both piezo sensors and inductive loops, the M680 is a versatile platform that support a vast range of applications including vehicle in/out counts from car parks, to comprehensive traffic flow monitoring through vehicle count and vehicle classification. The M680 captures vehicle count as well as Vehicle by Vehicle (VbV) data including class, direction, gap, speed, length, axle count, axle separation and headway.

    Thanks to its robust design and IP67 rated enclosure, the M680 delivers unrivalled levels of accuracy, reliability and ruggedness meaning you can be confident of year round operation. The M680 can collect data on each vehicle for scheduled, manual or real-time delivery over packet-based GPRS communications. Over 30 pre-defined axle and loop classification schemes including the 26- class UKNCC30 means the M680 can detect and classify a wide range of vehicle types from bicycles through to articulated lorries.

    The switch I/O card option can be used to control external devices such as Variable Messaging Signs, ANPR cameras, Barriers and Gates or any device that accepts contact closure input, ideal for use in car park management applications.

    Powered by a high capacity internal battery, the M680 can operate for up to 30 days without recharge or battery replacement. Alternatively, the M680 can be mains powered or driven by harvesting solar power from external solar panels, for permanent locations where it is neither possible or practical to tap into mains power.

    Data from the M680 can be fed directly into the Insight data intelligence platform, where the user can access a suite of tools to remotely manage devices, data collection, reporting and analysis all with a simple fully responsive browser based interface. When combined with the M680, Insight's traffic count & classification module provides a unique end to end solution for the management and delivery of real-time transport network data and its transformation into graphical user intelligence presented as powerful user dashboards that support decision-making. Using the parking management module, asset managers can use these same dashboard tools to understand and manage car park capacity and VMS signage.

    The TMU Mk2 Vehicle Counter is a similar product that is dedicated for use with the Highways England Traffic Data protocol. It is designed specifically for Highways England and those managing the Highways England network and delivers data directly to the National Traffic Information Service (NTIS).

    Software for use in conjunction with the M680 is available for download on our resources page.
