LightCop is an easily installed, plug and play, industrial light projection system. Traffic control signage (such as STOP, YIELD, or NO PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC) or general warning messages (such as DANGER FORKLIFT TRAFFIC or DANGER OVERHEAD CRANE) are brightly projected on the floor from a projector mounted overhead from a horizontal I-beam, upright support, or dropdown conduit. The image is projected through a glass and metal “slide” called a GOBO, which is an acronym for “go before optic.” As the light passes through the GOBO and is focused via the lens, a traffic control sign made of light is created. This bright signage can be easily moved from one location to another, can never be damaged or destroyed, and is always visible despite minimal ambient lighting.
We offer a number of different stock GOBO images, but we can custom design any unique image or message you choose. But the image displayed is only part of the message. What sets LightCop apart from the usual painted, taped, or adhesive backed signs is the onboard, motion detecting radar. If a person or heavy equipment approaches an intersection, the traffic control signage begins a FLASHING sequence that continues until movement is no longer detected. At that point, the sign returns to the non flashing mode. Traffic directives that are painted on or taped to the floor in a busy industrial environment tend to become part of the landscape and are often ignored. A flashing message, such as STOP greatly increases compliance and reduces accidents. Designed for harsh environments, the plug and play LightCop boasts a high intensity LED light source component and a high definition ground glass lens system housed within a robust industrial casing. With an IP65 rating, the completely sealed LightCop is virtually maintenance free for up to five years or 45,000 hours. Originally intended for safe walkways throughout industrial facilities, LightCop also now offers much larger traffic control signage designed for the heavy equipment traffic lane. These five to six foot GOBO images provide messaging to forklift and other heavy equipment operators. Messaging in the traffic lane minimizes the risk of accidents and personal injury to operators and pedestrians alike, especially at dangerous blind intersections. It's simple. It's dependable. And above all, it's effective. It's the future in industrial traffic control signage. It's LightCop.
