Transportable Roadworks Traffic Signal Systems

Transportable Roadworks Traffic Signal System Type MPB 3200

MPB 3200 fulfils all the regulations of VDE 0832 and RiLSA for radio, cable and quartz controlled systems and corresponds to type classes A, B and C of the Technical Delivery Conditions (TL) Portable Traffic Signal Systems 97.

  • Low-cost traffic signal system for one-way alternating traffic.
  • Easy to control, clearly organised at a glance.
  • Universal in use with radio, cable and quartz control.
  • All signal heads are the same – decide for yourself, which signal head to use as transmitter or receiver.
  • Equipped with directional radar detectors for traffic-dependent operation.
  • Halogen lamps as a standard feature – on request with new optimised LED technology.

Features of the radio, cable, quartz controlled MPB 3200.

Applications:

The low-cost traf c-light system can be used either with radio, cable or quartz control. It is designed for controlling bottleneck situations; in the VA version it is equipped with directional radar detectors for vehicle-actuated operation as a standard feature. It is quickly installed and easy to operate intuitively without any special previous knowledge.

Operation

The clearly arranged controls for MPB 3200 are extremely easy to operate, and can be clearly read even when switched off.

Radio, cable or quartz control is chosen with the function switch. The mode switch then selects the required setting.
All signal heads are identical so that the user decides which signal heads are to be used as transmitter or receiver with active feedback.

The necessary clearance times (interim times) and the green phases are adjusted at the transmitter and receiver controller with the knob. These times can also be adjusted separately in each direction for radio or cable operation.

The illuminated info display even provides information about the other side in radio or cable mode. As a result, it is possible e.g. to read off the signal and cycle status or see a pending fault (e.g. battery warning) in manual mode at every signal head.

Technical data

Power consumption approx. 0.89 A (halogen) on average per signal head approx. 0.43 A (LED) on average per signal head
Lamps 12 V / 10 W halogen (commercially available) – or optimised power-saving LED modules on request
Fuse 4 A, 5 x 20 mm, medium time lag (commercially available)
Control types fixed phase, vehicle-actuated operation with green phase extension, vehicle-actuated operation with green on request, continuous red, manual operation,  ashing, lamps off
Data transmission cable or digital radio path
Radio Path max. length approx. 2,000m under ideal conditions

The radio transmission system uses state-of-the-art technology. Even higher transmission quality is now possible with further improvements in the security of the radio link.
