3D Scope II coverage chart
How wide an area a device can cover
Table of Contents
This article provides measurement information to determine the coverage area for a 3D Scope II counter dependent on the device mounting height.
Detection Area for 3DScope II and 3D II LC (Low Ceiling)
How is it used?
- Measure the height from the floor to the ceiling / wall bracket of where the counter is to be installed. Ideally centered to the entrance and 2 feet into the location free of obstructions. This will provide you with the installation height.
Reference the above detection area chart to determine the coverage Width and device model rounding down from your measurement from step. Green Box area for LC model or Blue Box for Regular Model.
Chart Use Example: Installation Height of 8 feet
- Required Model: 3D II LC (Low Ceiling)
Installation Height of 14 feet
- Required Model: 3D Scope II
- Entrance Coverage:
Compare to the Coverage Width determined to the actual width of the entrance or area which Is to be monitored to determine how many devices would be required to count accurately.

Using Multiple Devices (Multi-Fusion) to cover an large area
When the installation height does not allow for a single device to cover a wide area or the area is simply beyond the max capability of a single device, multiple devices (Up to 10) can be used to cover a single area.
When calculating the coverage area for multiple devices there must be at least 3.3 feet (1 meter) of overlap allow for the proper initialization of people between counters.
The maximum monitored area can be extended from 8 m x 8 m
(26.2 ft x 26. ft) with 1 device up to 8 m x 22.8 m (26.2 ft x 74.7 ft)
with 2 devices and so on.

3DScope II Coverage when mounted at an angle
- The device can be angled up to 45 degrees with the use of an SMS supplied bracket.
- Counters are typically mounted at angles for the following reasons
- When using a 3DScope II for capturing pass-by traffic through a display window.
- When using a 3D in creative uses such as SIS, corners or kiosks.
- There are too many obstructions to install centered to the entrance, or a bit off-center.
- Cannot be installed approximately 2 feet where the depth of the coverage area will meet the base of the entrance.
- Where there is NO ceiling or ideal mountable surface area close to the entrance or area of interest.
Refer to the following attached worksheet to plot the angle of measurement to determine the displaced coverage area.
Using the angle calculator
- Download the above worksheet calculator
- Input the installation height
- Input the Angel (Worksheet max is 30 degrees) 3DScope II can go up to 45 degrees, however between 30 to 45 degrees the coverage is best viewed through the device during installation.
