Our RC2 Tripod traffic signal is the ideal solution when rapid deployment is needed to keep traffic flowing. With its integrated battery, adjustable legs and rugged design, the RC2 Tripod is well suited to utilities, tree surgeons and general day works. the Tripod RC2 has the same innovative technology as the RadioConnect2 but in a compact form, suitable for transport in a wide range of vehicles.

 

 

A Revolutionary New Tripod Design

 

We have improved the design of our Tripod, to include a carry handle and adjustable legs for use on uneven ground. It is highly portable and designed for quick deployment, ideal for gang works and short-term jobs. It can easily fit in the back of a van or the boot of a car and can be set up by a single operative.

Operatives will find the Tripod RC2 really easy to use with the simple control panel, which is placed at eye level. This makes the signal safer, because you can see oncoming traffic when setting up.

 

 

Performance and Reliability

 

With our patented AutoGreen Technology, the Tripod 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 Tripod 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.

 

 

The Tripod RC2 is ideal for:

 

  • Utility workers
  • Gang workers
  • Tree Surgeons
  • Emergency Response
  • General Traffic Management
  • Events
  • Potholing, tarmac and road repairs
