About R920 Solar Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon


R920 Solar Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon

The Carmanah R920 Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) is a stand out solution for those seeking to improve driver yield rates and pedestrian saftey at crossings. Backed by significant federal and state research, RRFBs are the leading product choice for engineers looking to enhance marked, uncontrolled crosswalks (crosswalks without stop signs, yield signs, or signals). The Carmanah R920 is a slim form factor solar-powered RRFB that fits easily onto existing signposts to make retrofitting quick and easy. Hardware can be installed in a matter of minutes by city crews to lower install costs and minimize traffic distruptions.


  • Easy retrofit onto existing sign posts
  • Installation that can be done by city crews with minimal traffic disruptions
  • No trenching, cabling, or in-ground wiring
  • No scheduled maintenance for up to five years
  • No metering or electrical bills

FHWA Research shows that Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons improve driver yield rates up to 96% in some cases, improve pedestrian safety and increase driver yield rates up to 73% above traditional beacon systems such as side-mounted and overhead beacons. Read the full FHWA report here.


  • Compact, self-contained solar engine for easy installation
  • On-board user interface (OBUI) and display for simple configuration
  • Wireless configuration updates between systems
  • Top of pole mounting onto new or existing 2” sign posts and 4” poles
  • Adjustable lightbar mounting for in-the-field aiming of lightbar towards oncoming vehicle lane
  • Rated for 400 to 1,000 daily activations, year round, in the USA - See our RRFB Capacity Calculator for more information
  • Exceeds MUTCD intensity requirements
  • Wireless activation of all systems at the crosswalk when any unit is actuated
