Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Florida

Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon

HAWK (Solar Powered High-Intensity Activated CrossWalK)

ELTEC’s innovative, state-of-the-art Mikrós EIC (ELTEC Intelligent Controller) provides a low-powered DC controller solution for solar powered hybrid beacon systems.

When a traffic signal is not justified under MUTCD signal warrants or a decision is made not to install a traffic control signal, a pedestrian hybrid beacon should be considered to facilitate pedestrian crossings. The HAWK is a special type of hybrid beacon used to warn and control traffic at marked, unsignalized crosswalks to assist pedestrians crossing a street or highway.

The MUTCD standards (Chapter 4F 2009 Edition) require:

  • Two Beacon Faces for Each Approach (minimum requirement)
  • Pedestrian Signal Head (WALK / DON’T WALK) at Each End of Crosswalk (countdown timer optional)
  • System / Crossing Pedestrian Activated
