VEHICLE DETECTION (OPTION)

Increased Safety
The vehicle detection option increases work zone safety by automatically detecting vehicles and adjusting the green time. It is particularly useful when traffic is heavier on one side. 

Customizable
Parameters are customizable to fit any work zone construction length.
When vehicles are detected, the green light can stay active up to the maximum preprogrammed time set by the user. The operator programs the minimum and maximum time, and the desired length of time for the extension. 

Traffic signals can be programmed according to the time of day and rush hours.

How it Works
Vehicle detection is commonly used during rush hours. A green light can be programmed and 5 seconds can be added per detected car all the way up to the predetermined maximum time. 

No Unnecessary Waiting Time
Have you ever been stopped at a traffic light for several minutes waiting for the countdown and not seeing any cars coming the other way? Frustrating, right? Vehicle detection solves this issue by automatically turning the light to green when a car is detected. No more unnecessary waiting time.

Show more

PILOT CAR (OPTION)

Typical Application
Pilot cars are mainly used in one-lane two-way work zones to guide traffic and keep their speeds within posted limits. 

How it Works
The driver of the work zone pilot car waits for the vehicles to line up behind him/her and when ready, the driver presses the remote-control button to turn the light green. The preprogrammed sequence is then set in motion.

  • Vehicles follow the pilot car all the way to the end of the work zone. 
  • The light stays green for as long as it is programmed to be and then goes back to red.
  • Vehicles exit the work zone and the pilot car driver repositions himself/herself in front of the new line of vehicles. 
  • When ready, the same actions are repeated by the driver.

Operating the Lights
The times and settings are all preprogrammed including possible extension times for when there are long lines of vehicles. The lights will remain all red until the pilot car driver presses on the activation button to set the light he wants to turn green.

REMOTE CONTROL (OPTIONS)

Wireless Remote Control
The wireless remote control option allows you to control your units from up to 300 feet away. 

You can be positioned in a strategic location and control the units according to the situation. 

The remote control has three buttons which allow you to control two phases and full stop, where both units are red (all red). 

It is also possible to program your own phases too: 

  1. One side red and the other green 
  2. One side green and the other side red 
  3. Both units are red and all traffic is stopped. 


Wired Remote Control
This option allows you to stand about 30 feet away from the unit, off from the road.

The remote control has three buttons which allow you to control two phases and full stop, where both units are red (all red). 

It is also possible to program your own phases too: 

  1. One side red and the other green 
  2. One side green and the other side red 
  3. Both units are red and all traffic is stopped. 

Typical Application:
Two-way road with one lane closed for work. A worker decides when the lights are red and when they are green, and changes them manually.

MIRROR MODE (OPTION)

Two Units Displaying the Same Information
Some states require to always have two traffic signal sets to improve safety. The mirror mode enables 2 side-by-side units to act in conformity with this local requirement by displaying the same information. 

Increased Safety 
Imagine a scenario where there is a long line of cars and trucks. When using only one traffic signal, the cars that are at the very end of the queue may not see what is going on, especially if the wait time is quite long.
 
The mirror mode, using two units (1 on each side of the road), improves work zone safety by ensuring that the drivers can see the units and information displayed at all times.

Show more

ADVANCED WARNING SYSTEM (OPTION)

The advanced warning system warns motorists of upcoming temporary traffic signals and indicates that the light is about to turn red, helping them reduce their speed and prepare to stop. 

The advanced warning trailer comes with flashing beacons on each side of the sign to get motorists’ attention. The operator can set the pre-warning delay to adapt to the local situation and distance between the warning trailer and the traffic signal.

This product improves safety near work zones by providing clear indications to motorists.

Show more

EMERGENCY PRE-EMPTION (OPTION)

This option is an emergency vehicle detector. When an emergency vehicle activates the system, the units will automatically favor the direction that the emergency vehicle is coming from to clear all traffic and give them priority.

How it Works
The signal is picked up by infrared detectors or sonar pulsation that is undetectable by individuals (the emergency vehicle and traffic signals must be equipped with the system). When the emergency signal is detected, all sequences and phases will be canceled and set to the emergency phase.

Applications
In a 4-way intersection, when the emergency signal is detected, all traffic signals will turn red, except for the unit where the emergency vehicle is approaching, which is automatically given priority.
