Polara Navigator Accessible Pedestrian Signal


The Navigator is a highly reliable, vandal resistant Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS) that provides a vibro-tactile ADA compliant 2" push button with a raised directional arrow and audible sounds during all pedestrian cycles. Sounds are emitted out from behind the unit via a recessed weatherproof speaker. A custom voice-on-location message can be provided with an extended push of the button. The message typically gives information about the intersection and street being crossed.

Two Wire Advantage

  • Uses existing pushbutton wiring, only takes two wires; very easy to hook up.
  • Significantly reduced installation cost due to no additional wires required.
  • Synchronizes all sounds on an intersection.

System Uniqueness

  • Independent minimum & maximum volume settings for Locate Sounds, Clearance & Walk Sounds. Extended button push and volume overrides under logic control.
  • Global configuration changes (setup one and save changes to all vs. setup per individual push button station).
  • Optional clearance sounds or audible countdown of remaining seconds during clearance available; complements or replaces visible countdown displays.
  • Secure configuration prevents unauthorized tampering.
  • System can self-test and fault report to a remote site for real-time monitoring and system maintenance.
  • Button rated for 100 million+ operations with > 2 lb. actuation force.
  • User selectable multiple language support option available; can be programmed with up to three pedestrian selectable languages.
  • Maximum volume dynamic range 60 dB.
  • Optional announcement of direction of travel (Ex: "traveling west") can be added (in field) to location message.
  • Extended push priority (mutes entire intersection except selected crosswalk to minimize confusion caused by other sounds).
  • Synchronized sounds throughout intersection; reduced noise clutter.
  • All inputs and outputs optically isolated; eliminates need for ped button isolators.
  • Can provide special messages throughout intersection such as "Emergency vehicle approaching, please clear intersection immediately", or a similar warning message regarding an approaching train if desired.
  • Push button failures or system failures default to transmitting a constant pedestrian call; standard pushbuttons can fail open.
  • Adjustable extended push time from 1 to 4 seconds in .5-second increments can be set by installer.

Custom Message and Sound Options

  • Custom Locate Sound - Plays a sound at a selectable interval to assist a blind pedestrian in locating the Push Button Station.
  • Custom Location Message(s) - Typically message states street being crossed and cross street names, and other vital information to help pedestrian with location and direction.
  • Custom Walk Message(s) - Typically alerts pedestrians that the walk interval has begun and name of street being crossed.
  • Custom Clearance Sounds/Countdown - Plays a sound to let pedestrians know they should clear intersection crosswalk. This optional tone typically would sound similar to the locate tone but is played at a faster rate or counts down the number of seconds in the clearance phase.

Advanced Sound Options

  • Two custom messages available, both override all other sounds or messages and plays once every time its assigned input is activated on the Central Control Unit.
