Cyclope capsule has multiple applications. The most obvious are pedestrian crosswalks, but it is equally effective at bus stops, pedestrian tunnels, light-traffic intersections, parking areas/buildings and other places where a more powerful warning would increase safety.
Cyclope capsule is designed to be installed into an existing traffic sign pole with a diameter of 60 mm, which seems to be the mostly used diameter of traffic sign poles in Europe. Cyclope capsule can be mounted also to a pole with some other diameter than 60 mm by using an adapter pipe.
Cyclope capsule starts to blink immediately when the sensor detects pedestrian movement, so in practise there is no time delay. At the same time Cyclope capsule initiates the blinking of other devices within the same configured radio network.
Cyclope capsule is just like any sign in a public place, it can be the object of vandalism. But because it is built from impact-tolerant plastic, it is very difficult to take apart. In addition, Cyclope capsule has been designed so that it does not work if taken apart and its parts can not be used for anything else.
Multiple field tests have been conducted, and Cyclope capsule has been proven to work in temperatures ranging from -30c to +60c. Further, Cyclope capsule is water resistant (IP 65) and its LEDs are visible even in extreme weather conditions.
The blinking is invisible to pedestrians. Only drivers see the LED lights.
Cities and municipalities are responsible by law to keep traffic signs in the correct position.
The blinking of Cyclope Sign is activated by a movement from a pedestrian/bicyclist when there is a low light.
Cyclope Sign is an excellent solution in a pedestrian crossing area with a poor visibility, especially when it is dark.
The operational logic of Cyclope Sign is based on both passive and active operation. If there would be a malfunction for some reason, the product still works as a normal, reflecting traffic sign.
Cyclope Sign can be used as an independent alert method, for example, when new traffic routes are being planned. It can also be used to supplement already existing solutions, like speed bumps.
By law, street maintenance is responsible for maintaining the correct position of traffic signs.
The product is a traffic sign illuminated from the inside, combined with motion detection, and it emphasizes the message of the traffic sign in a natural way. The product is quick and easy to install, and does not require mains current.
