Rite-Hite, Milwaukee, Wis., introduced the Safe-T-Signal intersection warning system, a ceiling-mounted system that alerts workers when traffic is approaching from other directions using LED lights in the shape of red stop signs (octagon) and amber yield (triangle) signs.
Safe-T-Signal uses unidirectional microwave sensors to differentiate approaching traffic in all directions, whether it’s a 4-way, 3-way or 2-way intersection. When an object is within sensing range, the other directions on the device show an amber-colored yield sign. The worker approaching the intersection will not be presented with any lights. However, when two or more objects are approaching from multiple directions, those workers will see red LED lights on the device. The remaining directions will show amber LED lights.
In addition to high-visibility 40 lumen LED stop/yield signals, the Safe-T-Signal is equipped with a high-intensity 440 lumen blue signal that projects on the floor of the intersection.
Constructed of steel, the Safe-T-Signal comes with a ¾-inch rigid conduit, can operate in temperatures as cold as -40°F and as hot as 140°F and is certified for indoor use only.
