The Traffic Counter Tester II (TCT II) can be used to test and certify an automatic traffic recorder by simulating vehicles passing over a pair of road tubes. It is designed to allow you to test the accuracy of your traffic counters in your office before placing them in the field to gather important data. With it you can identify potential problems before they occur, saving time and money. The TCT II will work with any of the road tube counters and classifiers being sold today.


The Traffic Counter Tester II is capable of simulating a wide range of vehicle classes, including all 13 classes in the Federal Highway Administration’s Scheme F. It can also simulate a wide range of vehicle speeds, from 5 to 80 MPH. These vehicle simulations can be done for a number of different tube layouts. The Tester can be connected directly to one counter, or to two counters using the splitter Ts and extra connector hoses.

An adjustable output knob allows you to vary the strength of the pulses that the Tester sends to the counter. With this you can easily gauge the sensitivity of the counter’s air switches, and identify problems before they occur. Two LEDs on the front of the TCT II light up when pulses are emitted.


A properly functioning traffic counter should record with  99.9 percent or greater accuracy when connected to the Tester.


Certify Data Accuracy

The Federal Highway Administration and many other agencies require that equipment used to collect traffic data be certified as accurate. Our Traffic Counter Tester II lets you do just that.
