Wireless Beacon ControlThe R838 Wireless Beacon Controller can be added to an R247-E installation to allow for remote control of the beacon flashing. Applications include emergency vehicle warning beacons, inspection station beacons and advance traffic warning beacon systems. Two activation models are available: momentary beacon flashing for a pre-configured number of seconds, or an alternate button model where the R247-E will flash indefinitely until the button is pressed again.
Manual Override Control SwitchThe R247-E is available with a lockable pole-mounted manual override box installed lower down on the mounting structure to allow easy access by individuals on the ground. This override box allows work crews, emergency personnel, and other users to temporarily stop the beacon flashing. The override box can be mounted on 2” square perforated and round poles.
Beacon Mounting ConfigurationThe R247-E supports multiple beacon mounting setups depending on your project requirements.
LED Enhanced SignsAlong with the standard circular beacons, you can add an LED Enhanced Sign to the R247-E to further strengthen the message to drivers.
