BlinkerSign® Wet Road Warning System

Features & Advantages

  • Solar powered/self contained on traffic pole
  • BlinkerSign® solar powered signs or beacons provide drivers a real-time warning of slippery roads ahead so they can slow down and take caution
  • The LEDs flash dynamically (ONLY when road conditions are hazardous) providing a more effective warning

Remote Surface Condition Sensor

The Remote Road Surface Condition Sensor is a non-intrusive surface condition sensor that uses laser and infrared electrooptical technology to read surface condition, temperature and reduction of surface grip due to water, snow and ice. Mounted easily on nearby traffic luminary, camera poles or on RWIS towers, this rugged all-weather sensor provides an economical means of gathering road condition information for weather responsive traffic management applications to improve traffic safety and road maintenance programs.

Rain Detector

The Rain Detector is based on the capacity principle. The capacity value of the sensitive element changes according to the surface dampened by raindrops. An integrated heater keeps it dry, evaporates water and prevents false signals caused by fog or dew.

The Rain Detector is equipped with three different outputs: a rain on/off output which detects whether it is raining/snowing (on) or not (off), also used to control a relay coil or similar devices; a 0...1V voltage analogue output (calibrated) and a 1,5...6KHz frequency output (not calibrated), which provide an accurate indication of current precipitation intensity. The on/off output comes with a delay circuit that indicates the “rain over� condition with a 2 minute delay so that the “rain over� condition is distinguished from the “light rain� one.


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.
