Inclement weather and disasters often leave little time to properly warn drivers of the proper routes to shelters or safety. These weather conditions often obscure visibility of standard signs. BlinkerSign® LED-enhanced solar traffic signs provide notification and awareness of closed roads, evacuation routes or dangerous driving conditions. The advanced warning allows drivers to turn around and take alternate routes preventing backups. Each MUTCD compliant BlinkerSign® is built to weather harsh conditions and emergency scenarios.
Water Level Sensors for Rising Water are Available
The Connected Vehicle Interface upgrades new and existing AC and solar-powered TAPCO Intelligent Warning Systems to integrate with connected vehicle ready infrastructure.
Enhance this system with the use of BlinkLink® Powered by TAPCO. Easy-to-use, cloud-based application cities utilize to manage, schedule, control and monitor system-wide time clocks and other intelligent warning systems.
Upon system activation, the BlinkerBeam® transmitter radio sends wireless signals to BlinkerBeam® receiver radios, triggering each associated alert device to activate.
Roadways that experience tidal or flash flooding require manpower and resources to combat the resulting issues.Traffic & Parking Control Company’s Dynamic Warning System for Flooded Roads saves agencies’ precious time and resources that can be utilized elsewhere in times of crises. The system employs a combination of technologies including BlinkerSign LED signs or BlinkerBeacon LED Beacons, water detection, solar power, and wireless communication to alert motorists approaching water-covered roads.
Curb mounted water level sensor senses water level and uses a wireless transmitter to cause TAPCO BlinkerSign@reg; to flash if water level is too high. Pole mounting option is ideal for installation over concrete. TAPCO BlinkerBeacon™ flashing beacons are available instead of BlinkerSign® LEDs.
The fiber optic water sensor is a low-power method to activate systems in flood zones. The sensor housing is installed in the curb or banded to a pole and will trigger TAPCO BlinkerSign® or BlinkerBeacon™ flashing LEDs when water rises to a pre-determined level.
The pole-mounted water sensor is easily installed at ground level to activate BlinkerSign® LED signs or BlinkerBeacon™ flashing beacons in flood zones. The tube-mounted sensor allows for a wide range of activation depth.
With a range of up to 700 feet, handheld transmitters and receivers guarantee reliable system activation when triggered from offsite locations.
Easy activation with a key. Only allows authorized personnel to activate. Stays active until switched off.
