Dakota Alert Metal Sensing Probes , 250 Foot
Replacement probe and wire for Dakota Alert Hard Wired Vehicle Detection Kit. For use with the Dakota Alert 2500, 3000, 4000 Series Duty Cycle Probe Transmitter
The vehicle sensor probe should be buried parallel to or under the driveway. Then the direct burial wire is run back to the control box that is located in the house. The probe will detect vehicles moving by and send a signal through the line to the control box, which will sound a whistle. The probe and wire can easily be buried in turf with a shovel or a lawn edger. If the probe is to be buried in the middle of the drive, it is best to have the probe and wire in a conduit to protect it from any damage caused by heavy vehicles. If there are gophers, moles, etc., in the area, it would be best to have the entire length of wire in a conduit.
