VCalm® The Ultimate Traffic Calming Technology

VCalm® is a powerful traffic calming sign with versatility that makes it perfect for a wide variety of applications. It is a summation of the most important features and technology that meet the evolving needs of the traffic industry. The VCalm® product family consists of signs that vary in sizes and functional attributes. Each product in the family has proprietary parts that are interchangeable between the different siblings. Below are some of the basic types:

Standard - This variation is most popular because it is the most effective and versatile sign in the line up. It comes  in both variable and static upper display models. Mini - The mini has many uses and is designed for mobility and low-cost while still incorporating some of the powerful features that puts VCalm® at the top of the market. Flashing Beacon - All VCalm® signs can control flashing beacons. This flashing beacon unit is a VCalm® without an LED display and limited driver-feedback capabilities. Some info "with quotes" to see how that fares out.
Simplest Programming
SD Card provides practically limitless data storage space (40 years of data per gigabyte) and makes programming and data retrieval simple and affordable. (SDHC compatible) Modems, coupled with our automated online software, provide remote access to sign programming so changes can be made instantly. VSpeed™Online is the ultimate management software that gives the ability to program signs, simulate functionality, analyze data, and deploy configuration changes through
remote access or SD cards.
Easy and Accurate Reporting
Traffic Data Acquisition System (TDAS) collects the fastest and slowest speed for each vehicle. The software uses this data to calculate the percentage of slowing vehicles and prove the device’s effectiveness. Accurate raw data collected by VCalm® can be used to construct limitless report formats and parameters for thorough data analysis.
Brightest Display
VCalm® utilizes high-volume high-intensity tightly clustered LEDs to maintain the highest visibility possible. This proven method of authoritative message presentation demands driver’s attention, making it the most effective traffic calming sign on the market.
Lowest Power Consumption
VCalm® uses proprietary PWMS™ LED technology that consumes 50% less power than common LED devices. This provides exceptional autonomy for solar/battery installations.
Strongest Construction
VCalm® maintains superior construction and durability with high quality components and no moving parts. The design
meets the NEMA-3R specifications, and many of the VCalm® signs have withstood severe conditions, including hurricanes,
fires, and extreme temperatures. VCalm® has consistently proven to be the longest lasting speed sign in the industry.
Unrivaled Versatility
Multiple independently-scheduled vehicle speed thresholds can trigger any variation of messages and/or auxiliary devices including: strobes, flashers, sirens, beacons, wireless alerts, etc.
Six inputs/outputs are available for simultaneously controlling and monitoring a wide variety of auxiliary devices making the sign ideal for many different applications.

Flashers - Simulate law enforcement flashers to slow vehicles driving dangerously fast.  Paging System - Alert road workers at a nearby work-site of unsafe drivers entering the construction zone.  Flashing Beacons - Control on/off times for flashing beacons and flashing beacon systems.  Pedestrian Push Button - Wirelessly change display message to say “PED XING” when push button is pressed and activate in-pavement crosswalk flashers.  Siren - Notify nearby pedestrians and/or road workers of unsafe drivers entering zone or simulate law enforcement sirens to slow vehicles exceeding safe speeds.  Traffic Camera - Photograph vehicles violating speed laws.  Strobe - Simulate photography of vehicles driving at excessive speeds.

Centralized web programming:
Stay up-to-date with the latest configurations for each sign.
Easy sign management:
Access all sign data and programming from a map of all your signs.
Simplified Programming:
Program your signs using an intuitive “drag and drop” style programming method that will help avoid programming mistakes.
Simple Data Management:
Keep all sign speed data in a single database allowing reports to be retrieved on demand within user-specified date ranges.
Graphs and Calculations:
Percentile graphs and time of day graphs to allow fast discovery of times when law enforcement measures are necessary.
Automated Data Summaries:
10mph incremental analysis lets you know what percentage of vehicles are slowing down at each 10mph increment.
Configuration Simulator:
Simulate a program and demonstrate functionality to others before deployment.
Auto downloading:
The software will automatically connect and download data from all signs equipped with an IP modem so that your data and sign programming is always up-to-date.
Intuitive Warnings:
Maintains a running log of power failures, sign functions, and other important events to enable up-to-date reports of sign health and solar status.
Instant Critical Messaging:
Instantly send critical messages to the sign to display warnings, emergencies, and other important information. (requires IP modem)
Wireless communications allow the VSpeed™Online server to automatically download vehicle data and deploy programming. This also makes automated traffic alerts and Instant Critical Messaging possible.
