BRAUMS Traffic Signal Lanterns with hinged doors

High Performance LED Signalling

The BRAUMS Dim-By-Wire (DBW) Traffic Signal Lantern offers the highest standard in optical and electrical performance, with the added safety feature of low voltage operation. Using the newest Futurled6 LED technology, the central light source and dual lens system delivers a brilliant and uniform signal display with no visible LED dots. Each lantern has stepped and/or gradual dimming functionality and the addition of custom-made masks allows any symbol to be displayed.

Futurled6 Technology

The Futurled6 system offers the highest level of optical performance in regard to both chromaticity and luminance. Each LED module has automatic light compensation in case of diode failure, and optimum heat dissipation for reduced degradation over time. Additional features include low power consumption and class 5 anti-phantom performance.

Extra Low Voltage Operation

Traditional traffic light models, such as Incandescent, Quartz Halogen and even LEDs, generally operate on 240 volts AC in the Standard Low Voltage (SLV) category. In contrast, the DBW Lantern operates on just 42 volts AC, putting it in the Extra Low Voltage (ELV) category. This ELV operation makes it much safer than standard lights for both site technicians and the general public.

Our Solution to Voltage Drops

Standard Low Voltage traffic lights are usually dimmed by a reduction in voltage sent to the lantern. While this method of dimming is reliable for 240 volt lanterns, it becomes unreliable at lower voltages meaning unexpected power drops can result in unintentional dimming. The DBW Lantern avoids this issue by using a separate dim-by-wire control signal to initiate dimming mode. This alternate method of dimming mitigates any issues surrounding low voltage power drops at large intersections. The BRAUMS Dim-By-Wire Lantern offers a safer, more efficient solution to traffic signalling, without compromising on reliability.
