RoadPod® VL 5805 

The VL5805 Roadside Unit is a four input, binned vehicle counter, utilising inductive loops as the vehicle sensor.

Key features of the system:

  • Dedicated, ultra-efficient loop oscillator per input.
  • Multiple levels of transient protection.
  • Robust, high-reliability loop input connector.
  • 32-bit RISC core for ultra-low power consumption.
  • Dataflash storage ensuring data integrity.
  • External power capability, such as solar.
  • Built-in loop monitoring and diagnostic tools.
  • Adjustable bin size from five to 60 minutes.
  • Configurable thresholds and lockout times.

Add FieldPod® Remote Access

RoadPod® VL supports remote connectivity via the 3G network.

This enables you to get your data and system diagnostics remotely, from your desk. Additionally, FieldPod subscribers received customised reports of their data.

MetroCount Traffic Executive™ software included!

We include our world-leading MTE™ software package with the RoadPod VL unit at no extra cost.

Loop Properties

If any fault condition exists, such as the loop connection being open or shorted, or any of the loop properties are outside reasonable operating values, these conditions can be immediately identified, without the need for additional test equipment.


MCSetup's unique LoopScope provides crucial feedback about the properties and condition of a loop. Loop properties such as inductance, operating frequency and peak percentage deviation for the last vehicle, are automatically updated for the currently selected loop. An approximate Q-factor will also be calculated if the resistance of the loop is known.


For testing loop connector reliability. By gently shaking cables and connections, any intermittent or faulty connections can be identified. The Latch lights indicate if any fault has occurred since the Reset button was pushed, highlighting even the shortest break or short in the connection.


MCSetup's LoopMonitor is an extremely useful tool for testing the correct installation and reliability of all loop connections, such as screw terminals and crimp terminals. The Status lights indicate whether each loop is operating correctly (green), or has a fault condition such as an open or short (red). Alternatively, an audio alarm can be set for indicating a fault condition. 


The RoadPod VL 5805 uses the MCSetup environment in MTE™, supporting multiple lanes. For each of the four inputs, you can assigne a lane number and direction.

View mode

The View mode displays the current bin totals, and the peak percentage deviation of the loop for the last vehicle.
