Transportable Roadworks Traffic Signal Systems

Traffic-light system MPB 1400 – the low-cost traffic light for roadworks.

The MPB 1400 is an extremely low-cost mobile traf c light system for roadworks in state-of-the-art technology. The standard version is designed to control alternating one-way traf c and can be extended by simply adding other identical signal heads for T-junctions or crossroads, where this is permitted within the scope of the national regulations.

MPB 1400 is produced in accordance with the regulations of the VDE 0832 and RiLSA for quartz controlled traf c light systems. When used to control alternating one-way traf c, it complies with type class A of the Technical Delivery Conditions for Mobile Traf c Light Systems 97 (TL-LSA 97).

Simplest handling in 7 languages.

Easy handling and uncomplicated operation in seven langu- ages are the main attributes of the MPB 1400, together with the possibility of extending it for T-junctions or crossroads.

Other advantages of the MPB 1400:

  • Low-cost mobile traf c light system for alternating one-way traf c, quartz controlled 
  • Can be upgraded for T-junctions or crossroads (export) by adding further identical signal heads 
  • Simple handling with convenient menu-guided infrared remote control
  • Menu language on request: German, English, Spanish, French, Dutch, Italian or Turkish (other languages possible) 
  • Exact GPS synchronisation of the sequences 
  • Standard halogen lamps or innovative LED technology on request (tested as per DIN EN 12368)
More Information:

All settings are adjusted conveniently with a coded infrared remote control that is protected from unauthorised access. Just one handbox can be used to program any number of identical signal heads. MPB 1400 is ideal for universal use. With just two systems, you can control alternating one-way traffic in two different places on one day, or simply use them together to control a crossroads on another day, for example.

The handbox takes you through the dialogue for adjusting the necessary parameters so that it is really easy to use: enter the red and green phases with up to 999 seconds separately for each traffic light and send the data: that’s all!

It goes without saying that manual mode with continuous red, continuous green, yellow  ashing as a warning and lamps off can also be adjusted in addition to quartz mode – ideal for example when felling trees or in special traffic situations where manual intervention is required.

On request, the customer is guided through the menu in German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch or Turkish. Other languages on request.

The standard MPB 1400 has reverse polarity and under- voltage protection, night-time reduction feature, data buffering when changing the battery and commercially available halogen lamps. The traffic light system is naturally also supplied with innovative LED technology on request (tested as per DIN EN 12368).

But it is not just the innovative electronic features that make MPB 1400 so convincing. Robust yet light-weight aluminium battery trailers with solid rubber tyres simplify transport. Proven, tried-and-tested housings in modular design minimise spare parts costs when repairs are necessary, as here it is really only the defective individual part that has to be replaced, always with an eye on the prices.

MPB 1400 – the low-cost traffic light system with easy operation for many applications!

Operation:
Convenient and easily understood: the MPB 1400 handbox offers seven languages for menu guidance and can be used to program any number of traffic lights.

Red and green phases of up to 999 seconds are entered separately for every traffic light in the handbox dialogue with infrared transfer to the respective traffic light.

MPB 1400 is synchronised with GPS to warrant a precise phase cycle all the time.
