MUTCD Compliant

MADE IN USA Download Data Sheets

General Description
The TS40 conforms to the specifications of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) set forth in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Using the latest advances in LED technology, the TS40 employs a set of synchronized high-intensity LEDs to extend the range of visibility of the sign during the day or night. Furthermore, the LEDs are flashed, which increases driver awareness of the sign.

Why Our Signs are Better

High Visibility
• Type IX reflective sheeting provides outstanding reflective brightness, day or night.
• High intensity LEDs extend the visibility of the sign under all weather conditions.

Superior Performance
• Low power LED technology reduces system power consumption and operating cost.

Outstanding Durability
• Highway grade .080 aluminum construction provides resistance to corrosion.
• The use of highway grade Type IX sheeting helps to maintain long term reflectivity.
• Stainless steel security fasteners and Tufnut mounting hardware included to keep the sign secure.
• Signs are weatherproof to prevent outside elements from entering the internal casing.

• MUTCD section 2A.07 and 2A.08 compliant.
• High visibility, low power consumption.
• Fast, easy installation, low maintenance.
• Field adjustable LED flashing duration (30 seconds standard).
• Vandal-resistant mounting hardware included.
• Optional battery backup, not affected by local grid power outages, 12 day autonomy (flashing 24/7).

Solar TS40 Signs

Keyfob Remote Control Transmitter

Optional Keyfob Remote Control Transmitter
A keyfob remote can be added to the TS40 to allow for wireless activation and deactivation of the sign. This is ideal for applications where temporary sign activation is required. For example, crossing guards would have the ability to turn on the flashing lights when children enter the crosswalk and then stop the lights when the children clear the crosswalk. The keyfob would also allow firefighters to activate "fire station ahead" signs when exiting their station and merging with traffic. After the keyfob is used to active the lights, the lights will flash for 90 seconds, or until deactivated with the keyfob. The keyfob has a range of 500 feet.

Keyfob Remote Control Transmitter

Optional Door Switch Activation
Activates signs when a door is opened.

Keyfob Remote Control Transmitter

Optional Photo-Sensor Bollard Activation
Activates signs when pedestrian passes between two bollards.


Optional Push-Button Activation
Provides a simple and convenient way for pedestrians to activate the signs. Wireless or wired push-button activation is available.

Double Sided Configuration with Telespar

Optional Double Sided Configuration
Our double sided configuration is available with an attached 2-1/4" Telespar square tube sleeve. The Telespar sign support system allows for fast and easy installation. Just insert the sign’s 2-1/4" square tube sleeve over a 2" Telespar pole, insert the bolts and tighten.
