Product Description

PD170 DIN Rail Single Channel Parking Detector 

The 7 series, the latest generation of Nortech Parking Vehicle Detectors, is designed to meet the markets’ need for a more cost effective, ‘plug and play’ solution! Our legendary Automatic Frequency Selection (AFS) results in less set up time, simplifying the installation of complex multi-lane access control sites. AFS also ensures trouble free installation and improved sensitivity facilitating the reliable detection of vehicles in all conditions.

Unlimited PowerFail Memory and a sophisticated environmental tracking algorithm ensures that whether your site has a simple or complex configuration, these detectors just work, giving you peace of mind. Consuming less power and with a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty, the 7 series offers a low cost of ownership and is available with DIN rail housing and relay base mounting. It is available in single and dual channel.

Automatic Frequency Selection (AFS) automatically examines the detector environment and sets the optimal operating frequency to ensure minimal interference and maximum reliability, significantly decreasing installation time. Frequency can also be manually set via the faceplate.

PowerFail Memory

In the event of a power failure, the PD170 will retain the presence of the vehicle when power is restored. The PD170 is also able to determine if a vehicle has driven onto the loop while the power is off, and detect it immediately when the power returns. This is most useful in applications where damage to vehicles could occur (E.g. Rising Bollards). The PowerFail memory is infinite.


Comprehensive diagnostics capabilities allow for accurate diagnosis of loop and installation problems. This is made possible via Nortech’s DU100 and DU700 

Permanent Presence 

The output of the presence relay can be selected to maintain an output for an infinite period, eliminating premature barrier / gate / door closure.


Automatic Sensitivity Boost (ASB) facilitates the reliable detection of all vehicle combinations and high-bed vehicles by boosting the sensitivity to maximum after detection of a vehicle.
