PPL-1000Portable Presence Light

Ver-Mac’s PPL-1000 is a compact, battery powered portable presence light. Presence lighting allows the motoring public to visually see from a distance an upcoming nightime lane closure. The system is quick and easy to set up and does not require a diesel generator to power. Equipped with high-performance lithium batteries and fast-charging system, the PPL-1000 will perform night after night. The presence of lighting reduces motorist speeds approaching and through the work zone, increasing safety for motorists and workers.
