Carmanah’s Solar LED Lighting Group has provided the United States Department of Homeland Security with an R247C 24-hour yellow warning beacon. This beacon will be installed at a US/Mexico border crossing near San Diego, California.

The border crossing required a method of drawing the attention of approaching vehicles to the border crossing facility. It was also required that the system could be deployed very quickly onto an existing signpost. Carmanah’s R247C solar LED yellow warning beacon was selected as the ultimate choice because of its cost-effectiveness, its proven reliability and the fact that it could be installed in minutes.

About the R247 Yellow Warning Beacon

Carmanah’s R247 Series warning beacons are the most advanced 24-hour solar LED flashers available. Entirely self-contained, they incorporate industry-standard LED traffic signal heads (also available with red output) 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.

Unlike any other yellow warning beacons available, Carmanah’s Model R247 units 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-powered beacons to automatically adjust to prevailing solar conditions, ensuring continuous, dependable operation year-round under all types of seasonal and local weather conditions. MICROSOURCE® EMS was developed and refined over a period of eight years and is now field-proven in thousands of installations in more than 110 countries.

In addition to 24-hour beacons, Carmanah manufactures compact solar LED flashers for crosswalks and school zones, as well as LED-illuminated street-name signs and regulatory signs.
