New Solar Beacons for Highway Advisory Radio

Friday, November 24, 2006

Carmanah's Solar LED Lighting Group will install R247C 24-hour solar beacons for the California Department of Transportation, Caltrans. These solar-powered, LED-illuminated units will be installed as part of a field trial for a Highway Advisory Radio System. Carmanah's R247 Series flashing beacons are the advanced 24-hour solar LED flashers. Entirely self-contained, they incorporate industry standard LED traffic signal heads and are compact and light enough for installation on standard signposts. They have also been engineered to operate for up to five years without any scheduled maintenance.

Carmanah's solar LED beacons feature the Company's core MICROSOURCE® Energy Management System, EMS, an advanced technology that ensures maximum system reliability while minimizing system size requirements. MICROSOURCE® EMS is a patented intelligence that enables Carmanah's solar LED beacons to automatically adjust to prevailing solar conditions, ensuring continuous, dependable operation year round under all types of seasonal and local weather conditions.
