Camera Equipment

South Yorkshire Safety Camera Partnership operates a range of camera equipment, details of which are shown below.

 

All of these devices are Type-Approved by the Home Office as being accurate, reliable, and able to provide admissible evidence for prosecution. 

Calibration certificates for all of our cameras can be found here

GATSO SPEED CAMERA

This is an automatic fixed site speed camera, which monitors receding traffic. With this equipment, a radar beam is emitted from the housing across the road. As a vehicle travels through the beam, the device can calculate the vehicle’s speed. If the speed is above the pre-set speed prosecution parameter, the equipment takes

two photographs 0.5 seconds apart.

 

These two images along with the white ladder markings painted onto the road surface provide a secondary check to ensure that the equipment is working correctly.

We currently use:

Gatsometer RS-GS11-UK cameras
