The second product launched from TraffiCalm’s next generation of driver feedback signs for 2012, the 18-Inch Matrix Display Radar Driver Feedback (DFB) Sign is a fully-featured solution with highly visible amber LEDs by design. Set to be the most affordably priced highway electronic sign on the US market, the 18” matrix display DFB is targeted to support expressway and busy work zone speed reduction applications.
TraffiCalm’s fully-featured and affordably priced DFB sign features an enclosed electronic control system (ECS) that can be easily removed from the sign chassis as a complete unit for simplified installation and repair clearly making it a labor efficient and cost effective solution.
The sign display shows the speeds of approaching vehicles using amber LEDs and is designed for use in areas where speeds are expected to be 45 mph or more; however, the sign is capable of showing and recording a wide range of speeds from 5 mph to 140 mph.
In addition, the 18-Inch Radar Driver Feedback Sign face measures 36-inches wide by 48 inches high with a trim 2.75-inch depth and the “Your Speed” legend in 6-inch highway gothic font is MUTCD compliant.
As an added benefit, the new 18-Inch Radar Driver Feedback (DFB) can also display a “SLOW DOWN” message in two lines of 8-inch high characters, and 18-inch high ‘happy’ or ‘sad’ face emoticon.
All of TraffiCalm Systems' DriveBrite Series radar driver feedback sign products feature a selection of power options that make the signs ideal for use in a wide variety of settings along with solar options for areas of installation where direct power is not available or is cost prohibitive.
With TraffiCalm’s SafetyCalm custom data collection software, information such as traffic volume, peak traffic hours, vehicle speeds, and more can be quickly downloaded directly via a wireless Bluetooth link that allows local officials, law enforcement agencies, and transit authorities to make informed planning and enforcement decisions based on timely access to valuable traffic data. The 18-Inch DFB will also be offered with an optional Android App as an additional communication vehicle.
