The Pyro Box Compact uses the patented Eco-counter Pyroelectric sensor to deliver a reliable solution for pedestrian and cycle counting. The box is vandal-proof and can be installed temporarily or permanently.  Independent studies have verified the accuracy of the system, even in high traffic conditions.


The customised mounting kit offers flexibility and allows installation on any type of post, making the Pyro Box Compact a truly portable all-inclusive pedestrian and cycle counter for use in both urban and rural areas.


Pedestrians are detected by a lens sensitive to the infrared emitted by the human body detects. The narrowness of the detection area ensures that two people following each other closely will be counted.  For wider walkways, two lenses can be installed facing in opposite directions.


Easy to install and move, the Pyro Box Compact is fully independent with a 10 year battery life with manual download 2 years if telemetry.  The system has a memory capacity of over 10 months.  The Eco-GSM modem can be included if a telemetry option is required.

The Pyro Box Compact must be installed so that the sensor is 80 cm high, and where pedestrians are moving without stopping (in transit), and with no obstacle between the sensor and pedestrians. The Potential masking effects can be caused by two or more people walking side by side: use a correction factor (manual counting) or reduce the width of the path to increase accuracy.  Please refer to the general technical sheet for the pyroelectric sensor for other specifications.
