Carmanah R820

MUTCD-compliant, pedestrian-activated warning beacon for uncontrolled marked crosswalks

  • Improve pedestrian safety by increasing driver yield rates
  • Ultra-efficient optics and Energy Management System (EMS)
  • Compact design to simplify installation
  • Proven technology platform
  • Meets and exceeds MUTCD requirements

Superior Design and Technology

The R820-E utilizes a self-contained solar engine integrating the Energy Management System (EMS) with an on-board user interface, housed in a compact enclosure together with the batteries and solar panel. MUTCD flash patterns, available ITE intensity, and multiple configurations enable the R820-E to handle all crosswalk applications.

Easy Installation

With its highly effi cient and compact design, installation is quick and uncomplicated, dramatically reducing installation costs. Retrofitting can be done where existing sign bases are used to enhance existing marked crosswalks in minutes, and new installations can be completed without the cost of larger poles, new bases, and trenching.

Advanced User-Interface

The R820-E comes with an on-board user interface for quick configuration and status monitoring. It allows for simple in-the-field adjustment of flash pattern, duration, intensity, ambient auto adjust, night dimming, and many more. Settings are automatically sent wirelessly to all units in the system.


Designed with Carmanah’s industry-leading solar modeling tools to provide dependable year-after-year operation.


With thousands of installations, Carmanah’s beacons are the benchmark in traffic applications and other transportation applications worldwide.
