RTC-MAG Magnetic Sensor for RTC-P3:
The RTC-MAG is a magnetic sensor that is used in conjunction with the RTC-P3 Electronic People Counter.
The RTC-MAG Magnetic Sensor is different than our RTC-S2X and RTC-S2XL infrared sensors. The infrared sensors sense the motion of people. This magnetic sensor senses the number of times a door opens and closes. This magnetic sensor is useful in situations where you want to count groups instead of individuals. For example, a retail furniture store may want to count a family as one potential sale, and not as individuals. Since the family will typically hold the door open for each other, they will all enter on one door swing. This will increment the count by a factor of one.
This is also the preferred sensor for hospitals who are using the RTC-P3 to count door swings in their operating rooms.
Connecting to the RTC-P3:
The RTC-P3 can connect up to three door sensors to it. These door sensors can be either this RTC-S2X Standard Door Sensor, the RTC-S2XL Long-Range Door Sensor or this magnetic sensor, in any combination. These door sensors connect to the RTC-P3 via industry-standard Category 5e/6 networking cable. The theoretical distance of this cable can be 1,666 feet.
This magnetic sensor includes a “pigtail” connector, which converts the screw terminal connection on the sensor to a standard RJ45 connection so that it can be connected directly to Category 5e/6 networking cable.
