The operation of the TotalCounterFF people-counter is very simple. An Infrared Beam is sent from the transmitter to the receiver. When someone walks through the beam, the beam is interupted, and a count is registered. The maximum distance between the infrared beam transmitter and receiver is thirty (30) feet.
The TotaICounterFF is a battery-operated, infrared beam-break people counter that is used in a standalone mode where you walk to the counter to read the total count from the display and reset to zero using a magnet. The TotalCounterFF does not separate the IN and OUT the counts so it will be necessary to divide the display count by two.

The TotalCounter FF is an infrared beam-break people counter. The infrared transmitter side (the side without the display) sends a safe and invisible infrared beam to the infrared receiver (the side with the display). When someone, or something, passes through this invisible beam, they “break” the beam and are counted. These people counters are known as “non-directional” people counters because they do not separate the IN and OUT counts. So if someone walks in, then walks out, they will be counted twice ….and you will need to divide the number on the display by 2 to arrive at a visitor count.
The physics of a beam break people counter means that if two people walk through side-by-side, they will be counted as one. And if a group of people walk through at the same time, it is unlikely that all of them will be counted. ALL infrared beam-break and ALL infrared-reflected people counters work in the same way. On a single door entrance (typically 36″ wide), most people enter one at a time, so the counting accuracy is typical very high (93 to 95%). But on a double-door entrance – this typical accuracy can drop to 80 to 85%.
