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: A school zone flasher needs anywhere from a 55 amp deep cycle to 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 10 days of battery backup using a 55 amp battery & could be more depending on the size battery that is placed in unit such as a 110 amp battery. This figure is based on running the system 2 hours a day and could be less if running it for longer than 2 hours a day.

 

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 an order or need a quote simply inform our sales team of the desired speed limit.

 

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

Answer:  Our systems are designed to run anywhere from 2-4 hours per day.

 

Question: Do I furnish my own pole or can I purchase one 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 or 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: Can the Programmable timer module be controlled inside my office via wireless link.

Answer: As of right now our systems are designed to be programmed via touchpad on timer itself. We are currently in the developmental stages of providing this service and will post it on our website once it is available.

 

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

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

 

Question:  How do I program the 365 day timer and is it easy to program?

Answer:  The 365 day timer is easy to program and you will find programming instructions on our website for each model under “Support Documents”.

 

Question:  Can the beacons be stacked on top of each other or do they have to be one above the sign and one below the sign?

Answer:  You can have it whichever way best suits your needs. Just let us know when you are requesting a quote or making an order and we will make it to fit your needs.
