130-D8
Crosswalk Beacons

Designed for areas that need hazard beacons to be activated when pedestrians cross the street. Example; Collages, Banks, Hospitals, City Streets, and other Pedestrian crossings where people need to cross street safely. Also with our optional wireless transceivers you will be able to activate the beacons without running wires between the systems to make installation easier.

  Our CrossTalk device is a compact, all-in-one solar controller, flasher, and auto-dimmer for flasher beacons. The way it works is energy efficient and simple! The CrossTalk uses Maximum Power point Tracking (MPPT) which extracts maximum power from the solar panel regardless of the environment. This is how it works with our push button activation: The CrossTalk is inside the control cabinet of the beacon with the push button hooked up in the “switch” activation port. When the a pedestrian pushes the button to cross the road, it’ll tell the CrossTalk, which will tell the flashers to activate. The flashers will flash for the adjustable programmed time.

Question: How long does the battery last?

Answer: Typically the average life span of a battery is anywhere from 3-5 years.

 

Question: If I furnish my own battery what type do I need?

Answer: You will a 110 amp deep cycle battery. They make various types of batteries from wet cell to AGM batteries. Our recommendation would be a sealed AGM battery for maintenance reasons.

 

Question: Do you provide a battery with the system?

Answer:  Our standard System does not come with a battery but it may be purchased as an option. Please see our options tab for further information.

 

Question: What is the typical battery backup? (days to run without solar input)

Answer: Our standard systems have at least 7-10 days of battery backup using a 110 amp battery.

 

Question:  Does signage come with the unit?

Answer:  Our standard system does not come with a sign but it may be purchased as an option. Please see our options tab for further information.

 

Question:  If I purchase the optional signage can the speed limit be modified to meet my existing speed limit?

Answer:  Yes. When you place order or need quote simply inform our sales team of the desired speed limit.

 

Question:  How many hours a day are these systems designed to run?

Answer:  In this crosswalk system it is only activated when the push button is pressed.  (It would run anywhere from 2-4 hours per day if left on constantly.)

 

Question: Do I furnish my own pole or can I purchase on from your company?

Answer:  You can do whichever is most convenient for you. If you would like to use your existing pole simply let us know what type of pole you will be mounting to so we can supply the correct mounting hardware.  If you would like us to provide a pole please see our optional poles under the options tab on the website.

 

Question:  What is the lead time for these systems?

Answer:  Our typical lead time is 4-6 weeks ARO.

 

Question:  Can the system be AC powered?

Answer: Yes, the system can be AC powered.  We will use our standard DC powered system without the solar and add a power supply in its place to convert the ac power coming in to our DC powered system.

 

Question: How are the beacons activated?

Answer: The beacons are activated once a pedestrian pushes the button on the pole.

 

Question: How does beacon cut-off once activated?

Answer: Once a pedestrian pushes the button and beacons are activated there is a built in timer that will deactivate the beacons after a certain preset time period.

 

Question: Do I need to adjust timer when I receive the unit?

Answer: Yes, you will need to set your timer to deactivate your beacons once you have activated them.

 

Question:  Do you provide any installation, mounting, and wiring instructions?

Answer:  Yes, we do provide all this information and more available on our website for each model under “Support Documents”.

 

Question:  How do I set the timer?

Answer:  The timer is easy to set and you will find instructions on our website for each model under “Support Documents”.

 

Question:  How large are the beacons?

Answer:  The LED beacons are 8 inches.

 

Question:  Do the LED beacons flash alternately with one another or together?

Answer:  The LED beacons flash alternately.

Question:  How is the beacon across the street activated once button is pressed to make sure beacons flash both ways?

Answer:  You will need a cable that connects the two beacons together that you will have to trench or bore to connect them so they will be activated at once.  You can also purchase our optional wireless package that will wirelessly transmit the signal to other beacon across street without any trenching or boring.
