Carmanah Supplies US Defense with Solar Flashing Beacons

Carmanah’s Solar LED Lighting Group has seen growing demand and increased orders from US Defense bases throughout the United States for its full range of solar flashing beacons.

Like many cities, counties and DOTs, US Defense bases are facing many of the same driver and pedestrian safety issues on their roadways. Carmanah’s solar-powered LED flashing beacons are a cost-effective solution to address these issues, as they can be installed quickly with no trenching, cabling or external power infrastructure, and they offer outstanding, reliable performance.

In 2006 alone, Carmanah has supplied flashing beacons to over 15 US Navy, US Airforce, and US Army bases in Georgia, California, New Mexico, Texas, California, Arizona, Washington, and Virginia. Most recently, Carmanah received an order for 32 of its R247C 24-hour flashers to install over existing stop signs on a base in Florida.

 

About Carmanah’s Solar Flashing Beacons

Carmanah’s line solar flashing beacons are the most advanced roadway beacons available on the market. Entirely self-contained, they incorporate industry standard LED (light emitting diode) traffic signal heads and are compact and light enough for installation on standard signposts. They have also been engineered to operate for up to five years without any scheduled maintenance.

Unlike any other competing products available, Carmanah’s solar beacons feature the Company’s core MICROSOURCE® Energy Management System (EMS), an advanced technology that ensures maximum system reliability while minimizing system size requirements. MICROSOURCE® EMS is a patented intelligence that enables Carmanah’s solar LED beacons to automatically adjust to prevailing solar conditions, ensuring continuous, dependable operation year-round under all types of seasonal and local weather conditions. MICROSOURCE® EMS was developed and refined over a period of eight years and is now field-proven in thousands of installations in more than 110 countries.

Carmanah manufactures compact solar flashing beacons for crosswalk, school zone, and 24-hour applications, as well as LED-illuminated street-name signs and regulatory signs.
