OnSight Portable License Plate Reader

A portable, rugged, self-powered license plate reader that automatically captures license plates in real-time on still or moving vehicles, compares or adds it to a pre-defined list, and sends real-time alerts.

OnSight Portable License Plate Reader

The OnSight Portable License Plate Reader is the world’s first wireless, portable LPR security solution. The revolutionary power system consists of 1 kilowatt of onboard battery with a power management system and can also be powered by lightweight, bullet-resistant V5 Solar Panels, connected to AC power, or a combination of both. Fully charged units without any solar input will be operational for up to 2 days or extended up to 7 days with the addition of an OnPower Portable Auxiliary Battery Unit (depending on final configuration).

This intelligent device has onboard computing with built-in software that automatically captures the license plate in real-time on still or moving vehicles, compares or adds it to a pre-defined list and sends real-time alerts. This solution is best for ingress/egress areas, parking lots, garages and areas where the maximum speed of the vehicle is under 50 mph/80 kph.

The OnSight License Plate Reader is compact and weighs less than 25 pounds, enabling rapid deployment and re-deployment, and can be configured and installed in under 30 minutes. It’s packaged in a ruggedized enclosure for deployment in any outdoor environment without the need for trenching and permits. The unit should be mounted between 10-12 feet high, no greater than 60 ft. away from target vehicles and the vari-focal lens should be “zoomed in” to the bumper level of the target vehicles approximately 6-16 ft across. The smaller the angle to the target area where the license plate will be detected, the more effective the solution.
