“At that price point, having the Carmanah R920 is the difference between having a protected crossing, or not. It was an easy decision. Seeing first hand other Carmanah Technologies products installed in Northern climates with an appealing design, gave me confidence that Carmanah knows what they are doing.” – Joe Geller, Chair, Topsfield Rail Trail Committee
Carmanah’s R920 RRFB has been designed from the ground up. All design decisions were based on energy efficiency, ease of installation, and cost- effectiveness. Optical, wireless, and energy management technology was leveraged in other Carmanah solar LED signaling products too. The result is a tightly integrated product that uses a fraction of the power of competitors.
When it was time to install the R920s, a group of rails-to-trails volunteers pre-assembled the R920, placed it in the back of a truck, dug the holes for the poles, poured the cement, and wired the systems themselves. It was a very simple and straightforward procedure. According to Mr. Geller, “The installation went very well, and we are very pleased with the result. It is just amazing how much we saved with a volunteer installation over hiring a contractor by purchasing the Carmanah R920.” The Topsfield Committee has already recommended the R920 to their neighboring towns.
