Radio technology optimizes power usage to extend barricade light battery life
Monster sequential barricade lights are not only a breakthrough in terms of providing safer indication of road hazards, they are also a revelation in terms of extending barricade light battery life. The secret is within the barricade light’s revolutionary radio technology, which will activate for 1 millisecond every second. This is a duty cycle of 0.1 percent. Depending on the selected flash pattern, the LED is lit for 40 to 100 milliseconds. This means that even when the device is turned on, most of the time it is in a “deep sleep,” and is not consuming any power. These innovations allow sequential barricade light battery life to extend to 9 months off of 4 D-cell alkaline batteries, a full month more than our premium, traditional barricade lights.
Sequential warning lights are more effective at communicating directionality
Safe and effective traffic control is vital for the safety of the traveling public as well as to protect construction, maintenance, and utility workers executing road maintenance or repairs. Barrier lighting can be used as part of the warning light traffic control zone measures in traffic transition areas and termination areas to alert drivers to provide adequate warning, delineation, and channelization. When harsh weather conditions can affect driver visibility, the sequential lights are designed to be placed at standard intervals to be able to maintain adequate sight distance for driver recognition and reaction, even on straight highway sections.
The new Monster Safety sequential warning lights are a revolutionary solution for the road construction and traffic safety industries. These innovative signals are designed to flash in a pattern indicating directionality, which makes them much more effective at communicating lane mergers and hazards in the road. The directional indication communicates a clearer message to the driver and creates a reasonable expectation for the driver to comply to.
Barrier lights are manufactured from hardwearing materials to withstand harsh conditions
Like all of our signals, sequential barricade lights are manufactured in close partnership with industry experts from the traffic safety and road construction industries. All Monster Safety warning lights are manufactured with high-quality materials in the United States, ensuring that they can stand up to the harsh conditions seen in road construction and traffic safety. This ensures that these products are optimized for great performance in the field. They have been tested and studied extensively and the results have indicated that sequential lights are the superior choice for road signals. Click here to read about these studies in more detail.
Monster Safety sequential warning lights increase traffic safety while reducing deployment and maintenance time. We all know that road construction projects can be long term commitments, and with the longer lasting battery life of our sequential barricade lights, you’ll save time and money by avoiding frequent battery replacements.
