This vehicle activated LED highway overheight warning sign is manufactured from 3mm aluminium and coloured black with powder coating. The sign has ULTRA Bright LED amber corner flashers and a display text of “OVERHEIGHT VEHICLE DIVERT” with an arrow. The text is to be displayed in capital letters, all in white LED’s.
In order to operate the sign, a remote overheight vehicle detector is installed at a designated point on the the approach of the low bridge. Once an overhight vehicle is detected as approaching the sign the system transmits a signal to the sign, which then activates the display for a pre-determined length of time.
Multiple sensing device options including Doppler Radar, IR gates, FLIR or a combination.
The sensors involved within the overheight detection technology can be set at a height to suit the application required. These applications can include bridge decks, car park height warnings, overhead power lines and overhead infrastructure which needs protecting and could be susceptible to collisions.
