Quick Selection Switch

With LightCast International’ Quick Speed Display Selection Switch you are able to change your over speed violator alert speed and your blanking violator alert without need of a CPU. This will allow for field workers to have no experience in programming – just turn the thumbwheel to desired speed threshold.

Optional Solar Package

With LightCast International’s optional Solar feature you no longer need to trench or bore electricity to your radar display. No more Power Bill!

Question:  Where would this Unit be used?

Answer: Our Pole Mounted Speed Displays can be deployed anywhere that traffic calming is needed. Some examples are:  schools, hospitals, factories, military bases, and much more.

 

Question:  How many hours of sun does the Unit require daily to work effectively?

Answer: This really depends on how many cars go by the display a day and activate it. If you are on low volume roadway, our optional  “ADD S” package will be fine in most cases,  If you are on medium volume roadway, our optional  “ADD M” package will be fine in most cases,  If you are on high volume speed roadway, our optional  “ADD H” package will be fine in most cases.

 

Question:  Are the batteries readily available in the local market?

Answer: Yes, batteries are readily available in your local market.

 

Question: How easily can changes be made to speed thresholds and/or violator alerts and what is required to make them?

Answer: Changes can be made easily with our speed threshold thumbwheels. Simply pick with threshold you would like to adjust, turn thumbwheel to desired speed limit and you’re done. It’s that easy!

 

Question:  Should it need service, where are your authorized service centers located?

Answer: If any problems arise most of the time it can be handled out of our main office in Tupelo, MS.K&K is in the process of setting up partner locations across the country to help service our customers better.  The location information will be available soon on our website.

 

Question: What is the lead time on these units?

Answer: Lead time is approx 4-6 weeks.

 

Question: What colors are available?

Answer:  White is our standard color for the trailer but you can get any custom color.  Just check out our options tab for more details on the model of interest.

 

Question: What type of paint is used?

Answer: We use a powder coat paint system.

 

Question: How long will batteries last?

Answer: Typical life span of a battery is anywhere from 3-5 years.

 

Question: Does it have auto dimming?

Answer: Yes, they all have auto dimming capability and also have a manual setting if needed; however, auto is our recommendation to save your energy.

 

Question: Do you provide a battery with the system?

Answer: Our standard system does not come with a battery but it may be purchased as an option. Please see our options tab for further information.

 

Question: Does signage come with the unit?

Answer: Our standard system does not come with a sign but it may be purchased as an option. Please see our options tab for further information.

 

Question: If I purchase the optional signage can the speed limit be modified to meet my existing speed limit.

Answer: Yes. When you place an order or need a quote simply inform our sales team of the desired speed limit.

 

Question: Do I furnish my own pole or can I purchase one from your company?

Answer: You can do whichever is most convenient for you. If you would like to use your existing pole simply let us know what type of pole you will be mounting to so we can supply the correct mounting hardware.  If you would like for us to provide a pole please see our optional poles under the options tab on the website.

 

Question: Can the system be AC powered?

Answer: Yes, the system can be AC powered.  We will use our standard DC powered system without the solar and add a power supply in its place to convert the AC power coming in to our DC powered system.

 

Question: Do you provide any installation, mounting, and wiring instructions?

Answer: Yes, we do provide all this information.  More is available on our website for each model under “Support Documents”.

 

Question: Are your radars FCC approved for license free operation?

Answer: All our radars are fully FCC part 15 approved for license free operation. Additionally, since we also supply to the worldwide market, many of our products also carry the CE mark.

 

Question: Can I use your radar for traffic calming applications?

Answer: Yes, our radar is designed for traffic calming.

 

Question: Can I use your radars for long range motion detection?

Answer:  Most likely. You can use our radar units for vehicle motion detection up to 2000+ feet (depending on the product type). However, the minimum speed is limited to about 2 mph (3 kph) and we recommend a minimum speed of about 5 mph (8 kph).

 

Question: Why are your statistics called “Advanced Statistics”?

Answer: Because our units do traffic statistics inside the radar, the radar has the capability of “seeing” multiple vehicles simultaneously. Even when multiple vehicles are present on the road, all traffic calming radars send out either the fastest or strongest signal. Any statistics done outside the radar (either in a dongle or in the display panels) will never “see” these other vehicles.  In fact, tests have shown that our Advanced Statistics is up to 2X better in traffic counts than statistics done outside the radar.  Our Advanced Statistics features a trade secret algorithm that can even detect and count individual vehicles traveling one behind the other at the same speed. Can your current radar do that? The other advantage of our Advanced Statistics done inside the radar is it does not increase the power usage of the radar. Any statistics that uses an external “dongle” to calculate and store the statistics includes additional electronics and will increase the power usage of the entire package. This additional power usage must be accounted for when comparing the power usage of our radar vs. the competition.

 

Question: Do you offer a traffic statistics analysis package?

Answer: Yes. We offer a very advanced statistics analysis package if you purchase our traffic stats in the radar. This package allows a user to read the collected statistics from the radar, trim the data, view reports including the 85th percentile speeds, vehicle counts etc.  The user can also plot the data on interactive charts which allow them to zoom in/out, change the start/end date etc.

 

Question: What is the detection range of your radars?

Answer:  Our units, incorporating the DR series of radars feature typical detection range of about 1200 to over 2000 feet (from about 1/4 mile or 400 meters to almost 1/2 mile or about 600 meters) depending on model type. This value is tested on an open level road with the radar mounted about 5 feet off the ground detecting a compact vehicle approaching at 85 mph (except SS300 which is tested at about 50 mph). Range will be longer with larger trucks. Range may be affected by installation effects like curves, dips etc.  However, range has always been found to be more than sufficient by all our customers for traffic awareness applications even with large 18″ digits.

Our units using the SS300 radar features a 300+ feet (90+ meters) of detection range. It is designed for slower 25 Mph (40 Kph) roads (e.g. highway exits, road curves, school zones, traffic crossings, pedestrian and bicycle paths etc.) and not meant to replace the DR series of radars.

 

Question: Can I change the distance the radar detects vehicles in the field?

Answer: Yes. Our radar units feature an Infrared Remote Control. Using this optional IR remote you can easily change the radar’s detection distance as a percentage of the maximum range from 10% to 100%.  Alternatively, this sensitivity setting can also be modified with a software program via the serial port.

 

Question: Can your radar software be upgraded after I purchase it from you?

Answer: Yes. All our radar feature a “boot loader” that can accept new software via the serial port.  This gives you peace of mind that your radars can always be upgraded to any latest feature that may be added.

 

Question: How will my trailer/sign benefit from the radar’s low power usage?

Answer: The display is usually the most power hungry component in the sign. However, most displays shut off to a very low nominal power usage when they are not displaying any speed. The radar is the only part of the trailer/sign that is “ON” continuously- even when no traffic is present.  On many suburban roads it is not unusual for the sign to experience an average of 10-20% “duty cycle” on the display. This means that the display is ON only 10 to 20% of the total ON time of the sign. However, the radar is ON 100% of the time. So in effect, the power savings and therefore run time for the radar are increased.
