LED Traffic Alert Extinguishable Message Sign
by Fortel Traffic, Inc.
Fortel Traffic’s VCalm®EMS is a powerful extinguishable (blank-out) message sign with two remote-selectable display messages, allowing for single- or dual-phase messages. The VCalm®EMS can be used for emergency or traffic alerts, informative messages, and many other notifications. The VCalm®EMS can be configured with radar speed sensing and triggering options for data collection or traffic calming.
VCalm® utilizes high-volume high-intensity tightly clustered LEDs to maintain the highest visibility possible. This proven method of authoritative message presentation demands driver’s attention, making it the most effective traffic calming sign on the market.
The web-based software will automatically download vehicle speed data, update configuration and firmware changes, and generate and email speed study reports.
Removeable Data Storage
Nearly unlimited speed data storage capacity available on removable SD card.
VCalm® maintains superior construction and durability with high quality components and no moving parts. The design meets the NEMA-3R specifications, and many of the VCalm® signs have withstood severe conditions, including hurricanes, fires, and extreme temperatures. VCalm® has consistently proven to be the longest lasting speed sign in the industry.
Ultimate Traffic Data Acquisition
VCalm®ITS logs and timestamps the first, last, fastest, and slowest speed for each vehicle to support the most thorough analysis on individual and collective driver behavior.
Lowest Power Consumption
VCalm® uses proprietary PWMS™ LED technology that consumes 50% less power than common LED devices. This provides exceptional autonomy for solar/battery installations.
Trigger custom messages or alerts from external inputs like pedestrian push buttons, temperature sensors, etc. VCalm®ITS also supports full flashing beacon control.
Driver Feedback Modes
Trigger messages using optional internal radar input with user-definable vehicle speed thresholds.
Extinguishable Message Capability
VCalm®EMS signs can switch between single- or dual-phase messages and an extinguished, or darkened, mode.
