What is V-Count II ?
Our V-Count II (way of Vehicle Speed Sensor) will set a speed limit in your vehicle and will monitor how many times your driver exceeded that speed.
Automobile accidents are the #1 killer of America’s teens. The vast majority of these accidents are the result of poor driving habits. Peer pressure, loud music, showing off, and general carelessness behind the wheel all contribute to these tragedies. Stop worrying about your teen’s driving and get V-Count!
Why V-Count II ?
Talking about defensive driving skills, setting curfews and other limits certainly have their place. But what about when you’re not there? This is when bad things happen to good teens due to inexperience, peer behavior, and other factors beyond your control. Based on statistics, over speeding is the number one cause of accidents involving inexperienced teenage and even adult drivers. But, now you can set a speed limit and monitor how many times your teen exceeded that speed limit.
How it works ?
This is accomplished by supplying the unit with the same Vehicle Speed Signal (VSS) used by the vehicle speedometer. In older vehicles, year 1992 or earlier, that do not use an electronically driven speedometer, a special speed sensor installation kit (VSS Installation Manual, RS Installation Manual) is available (see V-Count II Setup, requires PDF reader or view plain web page).
The speed signal supplied to the V-COUNT II is processed by a microprocessor that compares it with a stored calibration value to determine the vehicle speed at any instant of time.

When the maximum speed limit set by the vehicle owner or fleet manager is violated, a loud warning tone is sounded. This warning tone remains on until the vehicle speed is reduced below the set maximum. The time in seconds of an Over Speed violation before a violation is logged can be set in the range of 1 to 20 seconds. The default setting is 5 seconds. A flashing red light will turn on if the speed violation lasts for longer than the set time. This Over Speed indicator light can only be extinguished by an authorized person entering the 6 digit Security Code.
Each violation that exceeds the set Over Speed violation will cause a speed violation counter to increment up to the maximum count of 99 for each instance of violation.
If the V-COUNT II is disconnected for more than 20 seconds and then re-connected, a red flashing TAMPER light will start flashing.
