Pedestrian Thermal Sensor

The Pedestrian Thermal Sensor’s targeted detection zone identifies vulnerable road users moving within the crosswalk, activating TAPCO warning systems. The sensor’s ability to detect directionality serves a vital function in crosswalk applications, as it reduces false detections when pedestrians walk away from the crosswalk or when bicycles travel in parallel with traffic.

24/7 Activation

This is the always on option providing 24/7 flashing of your system.

Bulldog Push Button

Activated with less than two pounds of force, the Bulldog push button provides two-tone audible activation confirmation as well as visual confirmation. This popular activation option meets ADA, MUTCD and TAC requirements, and the housing components comply with NEMA specifications.

XAV2-LED Push Button

The XAV2-LED push button provides an instructional sign, a push button with voice message and three yellow LEDs for visual activation confirmation. This full-featured push button has an optional locate tone that automatically adjusts to ambient sounds via a built-in microphone.

Wireless Bollard

Most commonly installed at pedestrian crossings, vulnerable road users passively trigger system activation by passing through bollards placed on either side of the crosswalk. With the capability to determine pedestrian traffic direction, the bollards are battery operated, requiring no in-ground wiring.

Time Clock

Most commonly used in school zones, Time Clock configured hardware allows users to schedule system activation within specific time frames. Operated via PC or web-enabled devices, 16 activations per day can be programmed up to two years in advance.

Optional Motion and Presence Detector

Presence detectors activate systems by using infrared and microwave technologies to provide precise presence and motion detection. Ideal for systems where vehicle and pedestrian detection is needed to enhance roadway safety.
