Pag 3 of 4

The "axle-counting strip" is made up of one or more strip contacts, wich are the main element in determining and counting the axles, for which reason we describe their characteristics and functions below.
At the wheel pass the pressure exercised on the contact brings together the upper and lower sheet, leading to closure of the counting circuit. Once the wheel has ceased to exercise pressure, the electrical circuit opens again due to the mechanical reaction of the sides of the rubber covering.

The covering is built with the most advanced printing techniques, conferring upon it special characteristics of resistance to wear, abrasion, exposure to sunlight, mineral oils and the sodium chloride sometimes found on roads leading to skiing resorts, being compatible with the required working pressures.


In the figures below is possible to see six sections of the contact:

FIGURE 1 Straight and trapezoidal axle counting strip with superior inox protection anti-wear
FIGURE 2 Straight and trapezoidal axle counting strip with superior inox protection anti-wear
                 and lateral anti stretch
FIGURE 3 Straight/flared and trapezoidal/flared, with superior inox protection anti-wear
                 and lateral anti stretch counting strip


This is the best option for motorways subject snow or ice.

The usage temperature goes from -50°C to over 60°C.
