Designed from the ground up with safety, security and performance in mind, the RadioConnect2 (RC2) is the most advanced portable traffic light in the industry. With AutoGreenĀ® and Active Channel Management built-in, the RC2 sets the standard for efficient traffic management.

 

RadioConnect2’s ground-breaking design addresses the common problems faced by the traffic industry, such as signal performance, battery theft and reliability.

 

Safety

Operatives will find the RC2 really easy to use with the simple control panel, which is placed at eye level. This makes the signal safer to use, because you can see oncoming traffic when setting up. The base unit has tie down straps and stow-away handles to make transporting convenient and more secure.

 

The built-in chargers enable it to be fully charged in 12 hours, reducing the need to carry heavy batteries around the depot.

 

The RC2 features our patented Active Channel Management (ACM) technology, for more reliable radio communications. How does it work? By proactively monitoring, switching and recovering radio channels, ACM maintains a strong connection between units at all times. This means your lights are unlikely to fail when in use.

 

Security

The days of battery theft are gone with the steel locking bar built within the solid frame. Each RC2 has a customer specific code to stop it working with other units and the lock-down stabiliser system stops unwanted movement when the signal is in use.

 

Performance

With our patented AutoGreen Technology, the RC2 AutoGreen traffic light dynamically adjusts green times for 2-way operation, proven to improve journey times by up to 50%. Read more in the section below!

 

The RC2 boasts a best-in-class run time of 18 days or more, so you can save money by reducing battery swaps and charging batteries less. You can see the battery level and estimated days remaining on the signal display.

 

These performance features have environmental benefits that help our customers add value to their service and their clients.

 

Why buy the RadioConnect2 AutoGreen Traffic Light?

Most Traffic Management companies who trial our RC2 units don’t want to give them back! We have spent hundreds of hours fine-tuning the design and technology of the RC2 to make it the very best portable signal at a competitive price.

 

The RC2 performs up to 4-way operation, so is ideal for TM firms who mostly operate in rural areas or deliver traffic management for shuttle lane street works.
