Cautions and Warnings
CE REQUIREMENT: Use EMX Pre-formed loops with built-in surge suppression for CE
compliance. Connect shield on lead in wire to earth ground.
CE REQUIREMENT: Use CE rated power supply for CE compliance providing suppression
as specified by EN61000-4-5.
Not to be used in personal safety applications.
When more than one loop detector is used, set each one to a different frequency.
Refer to DIP switch diagram for frequency settings.
IMPORTANT:
This product is an accessory or part of a system. Always read and follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for the equipment before connecting this product. Comply with all applicable
codes and safety regulations. Failure to do so may result in damage, injury or death.
Product Overview
The ULT-DIN™ vehicle loop detector is compatible with most gate operators. The ULT-DIN may be
used in Center, Safety and Exit loop positions. The UltraMETER™ display feature makes set-up easy by
displaying the optimum sensitivity setting required to detect a vehicle positioned on the loop. Ten
sensitivity settings allow for fine adjustment of detection level.
The ULT-DIN provides relay contact outputs indicating vehicle presence and a second set of relay
contact outputs providing auxiliary functions. The second output can be used for loop fault or pulse
on entry /pulse on exit, or the new EMX feature, Detect On Stop (DOS®).
The ULT-DIN features
automatic sensitivity boost (ASB), delay, fail-safe/fail-secure and infinite or normal (5 min.) presence.
Four frequency settings provide flexibility in preventing crosstalk in multi-loop applications.

Operation
Power up
Upon power up the detector initializes by automatically tuning to the loop. The green LED
indicates that the detector is powered and operational.
Frequency setting
The operating frequency of the loop is a function of the specific loop inductance and DIP
switch settings 1 and 2. The primary purpose of the frequency setting is to allow the
installer the ability to set different operating frequencies for multi-loop installations,
recommended to prevent crosstalk/interference from adjacent loops. After changing the
frequency setting, press the Frequency Count switch to re-initialize the detector. To check
the operating frequency of a loop, refer to the Frequency Count section. To determine
whether crosstalk between adjacent loops is occurring, refer to the UltraMETER™ Sensitivity
Display section.
UltraMETER™ Sensitivity Display
The UltraMETER™ sensitivity display simplifies the installation process by displaying the
sensitivity setting required to detect a vehicle on the loop. To use this feature, observe the
display while a vehicle is moving into position on the loop, note the number displayed, then
adjust the sensitivity setting (rotary switch) to the displayed position.
During normal operation, when a vehicle is not on the loop, the display is blank. The
effects of crosstalk or other interference can be observed on the display when the loop is
vacant. Interference or crosstalk will cause the display to indicate a level, typically 8 or 9. It
may be necessary to observe the display for a minute or so to see this effect. Change the
frequency setting to prevent crosstalk.
Sensitivity setting
The 10-position rotary switch allows for precise adjustment of detection level. The sensitivity
level increases from position 0 thru 9 with position 0 being the lowest sensitivity. Typical
applications require a setting of 3 or 4. The UltraMETER™ sensitivity display simplifies the
installation process by displaying the sensitivity setting required to detect a vehicle on the loop.
To use this feature, observe the display while a vehicle is moving into position on the loop, note
the number displayed, then adjust the sensitivity setting (rotary switch) to the displayed
position.

Operation (continued)
Frequency Count / Reset
Press the Frequency Count switch and count the number of flashes on the red LED. Each flash
represents 10kHz. To help to prevent crosstalk when multiple detectors are used for adjacent
loops, perform a frequency count on each detector to confirm the operation frequencies are
different. Following a frequency count cycle, the detector re-initializes
Automatic Sensitivity Boost
The Automatic Sensitivity Boost causes the sensitivity to increase following initial detection.
This feature is useful to prevent dropout when detecting high-bed vehicles. The sensitivity
returns to its normal setting after the vehicle exits the loop. Decimal point on the display
indicates ASB on.
Presence output
The Presence settings provides two selections, the output can be set for Infinite Presence
or Normal Presence. Infinite Presence causes the output to remain in detect mode as long
as the vehicle remains on the loop. Normal Presence causes the output to reset after 5
minutes.
DO NOT USE THE NORMAL PRESENCE SETTING UNLESS THE OPENING IS
PROTECTED BY A SECONDARY SAFETY DEVICE SUCH AS THE IRB-4X.
Delay
The Delay setting provides a 2 second delay before activating after a vehicle enters the
loop, for both Presence and Output B (except when output B is set to Detect-On-Stop).
Output B
Output B settings allow Pulse on Entry, Pulse on Exit, Detect-On-Stop (DOS®) and Loop
Fault. The Detect-On-Stop feature requires that a Vehicle must come to a complete stop
over the loop for a minimum of 1 second (typical 1-2s) before Output B activates.
Fail Safe / Fail Secure
Fail Safe setting causes the ULT-DIN to activate the Presence output in the event a loop
failure. Fail Secure setting will cause the ULT-DIN not to activate the Presence output in the
event a loop failure.

Solution
Check loop resistance on the
appropriate loop pins on the
control board connector,
between .5 ohms and 5 ohms.
Check loop resistance on the
appropriate loop pins on the
control board connector.

Loop Installation
NEW SLAB POUR
Ty-wrap 1-1/4” PVC pipe to the top of the rebar
in the size and configuration of the loop
(ex. 4’ x 8’). Then ty-wrap the loop to the top of
the PVC frame. This stabilizes the loop during
the pour and separates it from the rebar.
SAW CUT EXISTING SURFACE
Cut 1” deep into the existing surface, place a 45°
cut at the corners to prevent sharp edges from
damaging the loop wire. Notch out for the “T”
connection where the lead wire connects to the
loop. Remove all debris from the finished cut
with compressed air. Place the loop into the
saw cut. Place backer material into the saw cut
over the loop wire and pack tightly. Place a
high-quality sealer over the saw cut to seal the
surface.
RESURFACE ASPHALT
Saw cut the existing surface ¾” deep and place a
45° cut at the corners to prevent sharp edges
from damaging the loop wire. Remove all debris
from the finished cut with compressed air.
Place sand over the loop wire to the surface and
pack tightly. Lay new asphalt.
General Installation Guidelines

Use EMX Lite Preformed loops for quick, reliable installations and for CE compliance.

Lead-in wire (wire from loop to detector) must be must be twisted a minimum of 6 turns/ foot to avoid
the effects of noise or other interference.

Detection height is approximately 70% of the shortest side of the loop. Example: detection height for
an 4’ x 8’ loop = 48” x .7 = 33.6”
