The ELSAG Mobile Plate Hunter®

The most advanced mobile license plate reader available today

The 8th generation of the ELSAG Mobile Plate Hunter is smaller, faster and smarter than ever before

The MPH900 is 65% smaller than previous models and is now engineered with neural networks for deeper machine learning and incredible accuracy across all 50 states. 

Our mobile license plate reader cameras have become the gold standard in the LPR industry. Backed by over two decades of experience, our LPRs benefit law enforcement agencies, parking authorities, toll operators and access control organizations looking to enhance patrol presence, add a force multiplier and improve efficiency.

"Our ELSAG LPR system helps us to easily identify stolen vehicles in high traffic areas without putting our officers in harm's way."

Captain Jason L. Ashley,
Washington State Patrol

The Mobile Plate Hunter minimizes the guesswork and safety risks that challenge enforcement personnel every day.

This rugged and powerful mobile plate reader camera reads plates day or night, in all weather conditions, and from all 50 U.S. states, as well as most foreign countries.  Edge processing allows it to identify the make, type and color of each vehicle as well as other vehicle features such as roof racks, spare tires and bumper stickers. 

The alarm data includes:

  • Date/time stamps
  • GPS coordinates
  • Image of the license plate
  • Vehicle make, type and color

All of our ELSAG solutions can be integrated with the smartest, most robust data management and analysis software system available, the ELSAG Enterprise Operations Center™.

We are committed to making the efficiencies and power of ELSAG LPR technologies affordable to agencies of all sizes.

The Mobile Plate Hunter ALPR System: Benefits
icon-new-1Audible and Visual Alerts
The Mobile Plate Hunter ALPR system can be mounted on patrol cars, capturing license plate numbers throughout an entire shift. If a suspect license plate number is read, audible and visual alarms alert the officer within milliseconds of license plate capture.
icon-list-match-1Hot List Matches
Cameras, a processing unit and proprietary software allow operators to capture images of license plates and instantaneously compare them with millions of hot list records to identify vehicles of interest. Hot lists may be updated manually or wirelessly.
The alert communicates the nature of the crime or infraction associated with the plate so operators understand the risks before exiting the patrol car. Also, because the system works behind the scenes, in-car computing allows operators to keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the scene.
