The first LED Module Communicating with Infrastructure

FUTURLED 6 X-Line The first LED Module Communicating with Infrastructure

FUTURLED 6 X-Line signals are active elements of the intersection infrastructure and are not acting as an electronic bulb replacement like all previous generation of LED module have done. The signals are communicating directly with the intersection controller via a CAN based field bus.

For operating X-Line signals intersection controllers do not need lamp switch cards any longer, because these functionalities (e.g. switching on/off the light or safety monitoring of the signal status) are migrated into the signals. The signals just receive appropriate commands from the intersection controller and transmit back the current status.

This concept results in traffic lights with high maintenance efficiency, additional functionalities and utmost energy efficiency. The traffic lights are designed to meet the demanding safety requirements of the international standards EN 12368,
EN 61508 and EN 50556.
