M.H. Corbin NC-350 Portable Traffic Analyzer
Replacing the NC-200 and NC-300 counters is the latest in portable in-roadway traffic analyzers, the NC-350. The NC-350 has been reengineered to include Bluetooth™ technology while still providing the same accurate count, speed and vehicle classification. Utilizing Vehicle Magnetic Imaging (VMI) technology, the new NC-350 traffic analyzer combines accuracy and portability, monitoring traffic flow conditions right where you need them.
- Now Communicates wirelessly via Bluetooth!
- NC-350 can be installed and removed in minutes
- Inconspicuous design blends in with road surface
- Individual vehicle recording allows infinite binning capabilities
- Durable extruded aluminum housing
- Long life, rechargeable, Lithium-Ion battery
- Easy to use software for viewing data
The NC 350 Portable Traffic Analyzer is designed to survey traffic on a roadways, bridges, parking garages, or construction areas. Because the analyzer can communicate wirelessly via Bluetooth, traffic data can be retrieved & downloaded without removing the analyzer from the road. The NC350 BlueStar Portable Traffic Analyzer with Bluetooth™ Technology from MH Corbin provides the accurate measurements of vehicle count, speed, and vehicle length. The NC350 BlueStar Portable Traffic Analyzer sensor is placed directly in the traffic lane to measure data, and can be installed and removed quickly and easily without damage to the road surface.
Connect Via Bluetooth™
Vehicle classification data and studies are now easily uploaded/download via Bluetooth™. Gone are the days of pulling the counter off the roadway in the middle of a study to see the data you have already collected. Easily upload new studies when moving your NC-350 to a different location. As Always data can be seen using the Highway Data Management (HDM) software for analysis.
MH Corbin’s Highway Data Management (HDM) software allows users to program, download, and query a variety of portable traffic classification units, including the NC90, NC97, NC100, NC200, and NC300 devices. Using HDM, traffic studies can be programmed, retrieved, combined, and re-binned per user preferences, and analyzed with a full range of supplied reports.
- HDM has a simple and intuitive interface to allow users to quickly program and read portable traffic classification units. Settings are remembered so that multiple units can be programmed to the same study parameters.
- Data can be collected in one or more catalog files, allowing users to easily archive and move data.
- Studies can be trimmed, merged, or extracted into separate files or into existing studies.
- Multiple reports and graphs are provided to show data in a variety of formats. Report data can be exported to a wide variety of formats include HTML, PDF and CSV files. Batch printing of reports is also supported.

WTI Sidewinder HD
WTI's HD Sidewinder video camera allows your viewers to see high resolution broadcast video with a notably sharper, crisper and clearer picture, regardless of what type of television (HD or standard) they watch. Get the richest viewing experience possible with H.264 High Definition video. Perfect for traffic flow monitoring, emergency response, and traffic control. The High Definition 16:9 aspect ratio enables agencies to view all four traffic approaches from one camera location. The Sidewinder system uses a built in H.264 encoder for sending high quality, high frame rate, video over the wireless network to a central software control system using industry standard ONVIF drivers
- High definition 1080i/720p.
- 16:9 widescreen format.
- Hydrophilic "self-cleaning" glass window.
- Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) and Defog modes.
- IP67 rating for the entire camera and enclosure.
- Optional H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG video encoding.
- Hybrid H.264/ Analog available.
Hydropilic Self-Cleaning Lens
The Sidewinder’s Hydrophilic glass is the latest in glass technology. This low maintenance, self-cleaning glass is created using Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) technology. Sending a high voltage acceleration of Titanium Dioxide molecules (TiO2) directly onto the glass, the PVD process allows a thin layer of TiO2 particles to penetrate the surface and fuse to the glass. The hard oxide coating created by the PVD process is extremely resistant to degradation by water, organic solvents, oxidation, sea water, strong acid, UV and wear. The Hydrophilic coating helps to flatten the water over the surface of the lens, creating a sheeting action that breaks down dirt, organic material, and pushes it to the side. The water’s low angle to the surface of the lens also helps it to evaporate faster minimizing spots.
Cleaning the lens is easy. Point the Sidewinder lens up to the sky when it rains and let the Hydrophilic lens do the rest. Combined with the camera's electrically conductive glass you will have a clean and clear view in minutes.
Electrically Conductive Glass
The inside of the Sidewinder's lens goes through a similar PVD process as the front. This time the glass is coated with Indium Tin Oxide (ITO). The Indium Tin Oxide allows electricity to be conducted through the glass to prevent it from fogging and freezing. Most cameras have a heater that is on 24/7 to prevent fogging and freezing regardless of the temperature outside. The sensor in the faceplate of the Sidewinder lens monitors the outside temperature and automatically adjusts the current through the glass. When temperatures rise, the lens will conduct very little or no electricity at all, saving energy.
Even at -30°F the WTI Sidewinder has over 50% visibility!
- Continuous 360° pan and tilt rotation.
- 20 or 30X optical zoom lens.
- Electronic Image Stabilization mode.
- ENG Option: Locks pan/tilt motion during vehicle travel.
- 0.05° preset repeatability accuracy.

BlipTrack Bluetooth Traffic Sensor
The BlipTrack traffic sensor solution is ideal for measuring travel times and traffic flow on highways and city streets. By placing BlipTrack sensors at strategic pinch points in your road network, it is possible to measure and calculate the travel times and traffic queuing by detecting Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-devices. BlipTrack securely pulls MAC address and encrypts the data from mobile phones, tablets and hands-free Bluetooth installed in most vehicles today. The Bluetooth and Wi-Fi sensors are capable of collecting data from approximately 50% of all passing vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. With this data, traffic engineers are able to obtain specific and accurate statistical information about each road user. This powerful stats collector can show you dwell time, movement patterns as well as traffic flow density of vehicles entering and leaving particular roadways.
- 50% detection rate with Bluetooth+Wi-Fi models
- Secure and anonymous MAC address handling
- One sensor measures several lanes and directions
- Works in all weather conditions
- Measures speed up to 124 mph
