PCR2-ODB Datasheet


PCR2 are bidirectional people counters that use a new type of 24 GHz radar transceiver to detect motion from both directions simultaneously.

The PCR2-ODB is designed for outdoor usage in harsh environments and is IP65 protected. When mounted on a walkway the integrated radar transceiver can count pedestrians walking parallel to the the devices surface.

PCR2-ODB devices have a power socket to connect to an external battery, such as the BBX55 (55Ah IP65 battery box). The box can be placed under soil or snow.

Counter values are transmitted at regular intervals over a public or private LoRaWAN™ network. All parametric sensors are equipped with a USB configuration port for firmware setup and update.

Technical Specification

Note: This technical specs relate to Firmware 4.0

Side Mounting

When mounted at a wall or at a pole, PCR2-ODS can detect people passing by in both directions on walkways 0.5m up to 5m wide.

IMPORTANT: Persons walking side-by-side will be counted as one person.

Wall mounting


The device can be mounted at a pole at around 3m facing towards the walkway. Our pole mount MT80-10 (accessory) can be used for that.

IMPORTANT: Persons passing by walking side by side ca not be separated and will be counted as one person.
