Wanco® Radar-Speed Signs slow traffic and save lives

  • Bold, highly visible, 26-inch LED numbers
  • Selectable speed settings
  • Streamlined see-through design
  • Regulatory speed limit sign with changeable numbers
  • Energy-efficient operation for long run times
  • Wanco® Radar-Speed Trailers feature the largest portable speed sign available today. The giant LED display shows vehicle speed in bold 26-inch characters that are highly visible, warning motorists to slow down by flashing their excessive speed.

    Often deployed in school zones, work zones and high-incident areas, these signs provide a degree of traffic calming unmatched by other roadway signs. Formal studies have shown that speeding drivers respond by slowing down to legal limits when their actual speed is displayed on an electronic sign.

    Studies also indicate that some drivers “test” radar-based speed displays by driving very fast. To address this danger, Wanco speed signs do not display excessive speed, but instead employ a full-matrix display to flash a message or symbol at drivers, to indicate they are going much too fast.

    The selectable excessive-speed message flashes slow down or any of several preconfigured graphical symbols, together with optional red-and-blue or white flashing lights. The display can show vehicle speed in miles per hour (one or two digits) or kilometers per hour (up to three digits).

    A regulatory sign above the display features changeable speed-limit numbers for easy setup in any speed zone. The electronic display includes visors and shades for superior visibility. Trailers feature a see-through design that puts pedestrians and workers in view, improving their safety.

  • Optional Touchscreen Controller* Wanco’s full-color touchscreen controller provides access to all speed sign functions. Widely known as the industry’s easiest to use, features include capacitive response, large virtual buttons and easy message setup.

    *Standard speed signs have an analog controller; the touchscreen is an optional upgrade. When a speed trailer is ordered from the factory with the Wanco Data Classifier System, the touchscreen controller is included.

  • Optional Traffic Data Classifier System
    The Wanco Traffic Data Classifier System provides a safe, nonintrusive method for monitoring and analyzing traffic patterns. Instead of wires, loops or hoses, the data collector uses its own dedicated side-fire radar, which beats standard front‑facing radar for capturing vehicle count, speed, direction and length (for classification) in both directions, with time and date. The system includes analytic graphing software for charting data with ease.

    When integrated with any Wanco Radar-Speed Trailer, the data collector draws power from the speed trailer. The two systems can operate simultaneously or independently. The system also includes the touchscreen controller described above.
