Icy Road BlinkerSign® Solar Powered Sign

BlinkerSign® solar powered signs provide drivers a real-time warning of icy roads ahead so they can slow down and take caution. Linked to the Surface Sentinel, the LEDs flash ONLY when road conditions are icy providing a dynamic, more effective warning than 24 /7 flashing. The sensor is a compact and rugged sensor that provides surface temperature, air temperature, relative humidity and dew point from a fixed tower or pole.

Features & Advantages

  • Triggers ITS devices directly from sensor
  • Low cost, low power, durable & accurate
  • Calculates multiple climate factors

Optional Surface Sentinel Environmental Sensor

The Fixed Surface Sentinel is a compact and rugged sensor that provides surface temperature, air temperature, relative humidity and dew point from a fixed tower or pole. The Surface Sentinel was designed for the demands of road management professionals.

Standard open-architecture data output is available via SDI-12 to provide a common interface to industry standard datalogger and telemetry options. The sensor has an integrated, powermanaged fan as an option for applications where higher accuracy air temperature and relative humidity readings are needed. A contact output is provided directly from the sensor to trigger ITS field devices at user defined sensor thresholds.

Optional BlinkerBeam® Wireless Communication

Systems can be activated and controlled with BlinkerBeam® self-powered wireless transmitters and receivers. These compact controllers activate systems wirelessly within a 1000 ft. range line of site (longer distances available with external antennas). BlinkerBeam┬« can be activated and controlled from a remote location, allowing for immediate implementation of warning, emergency and evacuation systems. Electric grid independence provides activation during power outages and remote locations.
