MUTCD Compliant Circular Flashing Beacon Supports Multiple Configuration Options and Add-Ons

Do more with your circular flashing beacon. The Carmanah R820-F increases driver yield rates and improves pedestrian safety in high-traffic locations or those requiring up to four higher-intensity LED beacons. This user-activated, solar-powered flashing beacon helps drivers see pedestrians and cyclists at the crosswalk in any weather and any setting, day or night. It requires no trenching, cabling, or in-ground wiring, and it’s built to last: durable and dependable, this product comes with a 5-year warranty for peace of mind.

Circular beacons are approved in the Federal Highway Administration’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

Top 3 reasons to choose this solar-powered circular flashing beacon:

  • 30-watt solar engine supports passive activation sensors, audible pushbutton stations, and remote monitoring.
  • Easy to mount or retrofit onto a range of square and round poles.
  • Can support up to four beacons for more visibility or more complex setups.


We put solar to work

Whether your project application is a crosswalk, school zone, or 24-hour sign marking, we can run a comprehensive site assessment to confirm the best solar-powered flashing beacon for your project. We run a field-proven software simulation to create a Solar Power Report™ to show you how we did it. Best of all? It’s free, and we can have it ready in 24 hours.

Configuration Options and Add-Ons


Overhead Lighting

While many mid-block crosswalks are in locations with traditional street lighting, it's typically not enough to adequately illuminate a pedestrian or light the entire crosswalk area. Purpose-built, pedestrian-scale lighting like Carmanah's overhead lighting systems integrate seamlessly with our circular flashing beacons, providing bright, directional, and uniform light that allows drivers to detect pedestrians at a distance and adjust their speed accordingly. Studies have found that adding street lighting can reduce nighttime crashes by 50% and reduce fatal crashes by 43%.  

ADA, PROWAG and MUTCD Compliant Pedestrian Activation

All our crosswalk beacon systems use pushbuttons and activation methods that are compliant to ADA, PROWAG and MUTCD standards and guidelines. The R920-F can support standard pushbuttons with two-tone audible confirmation and visual LED confirmation, accessible pedestrian signal (APS) pushbuttons with locator tone and customizable voice messages. APS pushbuttons with non-contact operation and passive activation sensors are also supported, allowing pedestrians to activate a crosswalk without pressing a button.

Along with the standard circular beacons, you can add an LED Enhanced Sign to the R820-F to further strengthen the message to drivers. These flashing signs can also supplement advance pedestrian warning signs to warn drivers a pedestrian has activated the beacon crossing.
