Touch-Less Pedestrian Crossings

The BRAUMS Touch-Less Pedestrian Call products support the public with more hygienic alternatives to standard push buttons, enabling a call for a crossing phase with a wave of the hand.  


BRAUMS Touch-Less Pedestrian Call

Designed for the Public

Designed specifically to serve the needs of all members of the public, in accordance with both Australian and international road authority standards, the BRAUMS Touch-Less Pedestrian Call System offers an alternative solution that is both hygienic and reliable.

The Touch-Less System retains all functionality of the tried and tested, traditional ped call, including audio tactile features for the hearing and vision impaired. The product now features an Infrared (IR) Proximity Sensor so pedestrians can request a crossing phase without physically pushing the button. At the wave of the hand, an illuminated LED ring will change from red to green to reassure pedestrians that their request has been acknowledged.

Key Benefits:

  • Improved Public Hygiene
    The contactless system prevents members of the public from potentially contaminating their hands while attempting to request a crossing phase.
  • Safer Pedestrian Behaviour
    Allowing pedestrians to once again control when crossing phases occur can reduce frustration and encourage safer crossing behaviour.
  • Reduces Traffic Congestion
    By limiting the number of unnecessary crossing phases that inevitably occur during a fixed-time, automated system, traffic can continue to flow until a pedestrian crossing phase is needed.

    Product Features:

    • Infrared Proximity Sensor
      Protected by a stainless steel housing, the IR sensor itself has an MTBF rating of 11+ years, with an adjustable sensitivity range of 40mm – 150mm.
    • Proximity Sensor Light
      The proximity sensor light will blink green to let pedestrians know that their hand gesture has been actioned and a pedestrian crossing phase will soon commence.
    • Tactile Functionality
      The Touch-Less system still offers a mechanical push button and tactile feedback system for those with vision impairment and other disabilities.
    • Quick and Easy Installation
      Retrofits to existing installations quickly and easily because it utilises the same system currently in use. This means no new hardware or additional space is required.
    • Dual-Redundancy
      Given the physical push button and the IR Proximity Sensor run in parallel, each input method can serve as a backup for the other in the unlikely event that one should fail.
    • Extra-Low Voltage Configuration
      The system can be configured for 42V AC installations, delivering an extra level of safety, not just for installers, but for members of the public too.
