SZ-1400

This series of beacons run on a preset schedule and are ideal for school zone speed limit signs installed on the roads surrounding a schoolyard, or at crosswalks that would benefit from scheduled flash periods at the busiest times of day or night. They can also be used for roadways and highways that require warning beacons to be flashing during specific days and times, which can also be adjusted remotely on demand.

With the convenience of cellular communication, or direct-USB connection, these beacons can provide diagnostic feedback as to flash status, battery health, and activation counting, as well as visualization on a map for convenient quick status checks and monitoring. These beacons create a simple setup when mounted with warning signs, and our variety of mounting options makes them easy to mount above existing or new signs.

School Zones Slow drivers down and keep them alert as they pass through school zones.
Playground Zones Remind drivers to slow down for playground zones.
Seasonal Road Conditions Alert drivers to weather alerts and other road status.

 

All SZ-1400 beacons come with a choice of two flash patterns: MUTCD and JSFT Strobe. The JSFT Strobe pattern is twice as effective at getting drivers’ attention, while using half the power draw of the standard MUTCD pattern.

  • Flexible: Adjustable flash pattern and activation duration to accommodate varying traffic conditions. Available in 8” or 12” LED signals, with housings available in yellow, green, black or custom colors.
  • Programmable: Cellular or USB programming capability for scheduled flash periods.
  • Adaptable: Pole-top mounting available to fit all pole sizes and types, and side-of-pole mounting.
  • Solar powered: Designed to run continuously, each unit is completely self-contained and needs no external power, eliminating electrical bills and expensive trenching. Also available for AC connectivity, with the added benefit of solar/battery backup.
  • Customizable: Modular design allows easy customization, plus our in-house design and engineering team can create solutions for your unique application or functional requirement.
  • Simple installation: Pre-assembled parts, quick-connect wiring, no trenching, no power grid connection, can be installed in minutes to minimize traffic disruption.
  • Durable: Powder-coated single aluminum enclosure for solar panel and components is compact and discrete, deterring vandalism and enhancing the streetscape. UV-resistant yet lightweight polycarbonate beacon head reinforced with a steel rod, and impact-resistant polycarbonate LED lens ensure years of durability.
  • High Quality: Designed, built and manufactured in Canada.
  • Radio Controlled: All Secondary beacons in a pedestrian crossing system are activated by wireless radio-frequency communication from the Primary beacon.

About SZ Series Beacons

JSFT Programmable Beacons can be installed anywhere.* A preset flash schedule can be created using the web-based JSF Tech Beacon App and sent to the beacons wirelessly online, or with a laptop and USB with our offline scheduler. Beacons can also be activated using a cellular-enabled mobile device. The scheduling website can accommodate multiple years of programming, and diagnostic information can be accessed from cellular Primary Beacons.

Each Programmable Beacon set consists of two beacon types: Primary and Secondary. The Primaries store the programmed flash schedule and, if cellular-enabled, contain modems. The Secondaries receive daily on/off signals from the Primaries. Any number of Secondary beacons can be linked to a Primary beacon within range. When a Primary receives an activation command, it relays this command to all Secondary beacons within range in the series.
