Five Reasons Sequential Barricade Lights Will Blow Your Mind

Remotely control your sequential traffic signals for optimal safetyOur new sequential barricade lights feature many exclusive benefits due to their innovative radio linking technology. The sequential barricade light represents a large step forward for safety in traffic checkpoint and road work applications. Here’s why:

5. Different frequencies, different patterns

If you need to run multiple patterns in multiple strings, fear not; sequential barricade lights can operate on different frequencies. This prevents the radio signals from interfering with each other and allows multiple strings of lights to be active and displaying different flash patterns in the same physical area. This is a benefit in situations such as DUI checkpoints where directing traffic into funnels is key.

Stop Changing Barricade Light Batteries So Often

Road construction made safe with sequential barricade lightsMonster sequential barricade lights are not only a breakthrough in terms of providing safer indication of road hazards, they are also a revelation in terms of extending barricade light battery life. The secret is within the barricade light’s revolutionary radio technology, which will activate for 1 millisecond every second. This is a duty cycle of 0.1 percent. Depending on the selected flash pattern, the LED is lit for 40 to 100 milliseconds. This means that even when the device is turned on, most of the time it is in a “deep sleep,” and is not consuming any power. These innovations allow sequential barricade light battery life to extend to 9 months off of 4 D-cell alkaline batteries, a full month more than our premium, traditional barricade lights.

Sequential Barricade Lights: Saving Lives and Money

Monster sequential warning lights have great battery lifeOur new sequential barricade lights, powered by pi-Lit, represent a large step forward for the traffic and road construction safety industries. These high-quality warning lights are designed to flash in one of their several pre-programed patterns. They are formulated to better warn drivers about impending road hazards. Where the traditional barricade light functions as a good “heads up” warning, a sequential barricade light can actually indicate directionality. This is crucial when lane closures and re-routing traffic is involved.
