TraffiCalm Systems announced the first product in their new line of driver feedback signs for 2012.
The fully-featured and affordably priced new DFB sign features a fully enclosed electronic control system (ECS) that can be easily removed from the mounting frame as a complete unit for simplified installation and repair making it a labor efficient and cost effective solution.
The display shows the speeds of approaching vehicles using amber LEDs and is designed for use in areas where speeds are expected to be 35 mph or less; however, the sign is capable of showing and recording a wide range of speeds from 5 mph to 99 mph.
In addition, the new 9-Inch Display Radar Driver Feed Back Sign with Slow Down Message sign face measures a compact 18 inches by 24 inches, and has two 9-inch high LED highway gothic numerals to clearly display the speed.
As an added benefit, the new 9-inch Display Radar Driver FeedBack (DFB) can also display a "SLOW DOWN" message in two lines of 3-inch high characters, or a 9-inch high 'happy' or 'sad' face emoticon.
All of TraffiCalm Systems' iQ Series of driver feedback sign products feature a selection of available intelligent 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.
TraffiCalm’s first generation DFBs have been installed world-wide and include their successful iQ1500 15-inch Urban Radar Driver Feedback sign. Both products feature: real time speed feedback, Bluetooth Class 1 connectivity, programmable speed thresholds, high-impact polycarbonate electronics unit, solar power options, and are offered in white, yellow, fluorescent yellow-green, or fluorescent orange faceplates using the super-high efficiency retro-reflective 3M Diamond Grade Reflective Sheeting Series.
