About Carmanah's R820C Crosswalk Warning System

Carmanah's Model R820C is the most compact, energy-efficient and cost-effective solar LED crosswalk warning system in the world. The R820C crosswalk warning system improves driver awareness of pedestrians at uncontrolled crosswalks. Drawing on Carmanah's innovative compact control module or "solar engine", the R820C can be mounted high above the sidewalk, out of the path of pedestrians and out of the reach of vandals. With no trenching, cabling, grid power hookup, or disruption to traffic flow, the R820C installs for a fraction of the cost of traditional hardwired systems; in fact, with minimal technical expertise, the R820C can be installed in minutes onto any existing signpost. The R820C is the only self-contained, solar LED pedestrian crosswalk warning system that uses ITE* compliant LED modules and meets all MUTCD** requirements for flashing beacons.

With more than 250,000 installations, Carmanah is a world leader in renewable and energy-efficient technology solutions. For more information on the new R820C or Carmanah's other solar-powered LED traffic products, visit www.roadlights.com or contact Carmanah's Roadway Division at:
