Warning or Caution Systems (24 Hour Warning Systems) are designed to alert approaching motorists of an impending or possibly dangerous condition. Some examples are (but are not limited to):
Each system provided by ELTEC is built for the specific application specified by you, the end-user. The power source may be either AC or solar powered DC.
A typical installation consists of two or more poles with either one or two flashing LEDs per pole (yellow/amber or red.) Each pole supports a ventilated, locked (a Corbin lock can be substituted for the standard police lock), brushed aluminum cabinet that houses the electronic controls. If the unit is solar powered, a charge controller and batteries are also housed inside the cabinet, and solar panels with racks (either side-of-pole or top-of-pole) are mounted on each pole.
Should a 24 hour warning system need to be ON in only certain conditions, some options are:
When AC power is not available or practical to power the LED’s, it’s essential that the 24-Hour warning signals be reliable; never going dark due to lack of sufficient power.
ELTEC’s 24 Hour Warning Systems are sized by a sophisticated computer program. It considers:
This means ELTEC’s solar powered 24 hour systems work just as well in the northern snow belt as in the southern sun belt. Our sizing analysis guarantees sufficient power for the solar powered flashing beacons - the light intensity never fades and the flasher rate never decreases!
Below are additional features for (DC) solar units.
