Optical emitters provide emergency vehicle preemption at upcoming traffic signal intersections and gated entries. Reducing response times in order to save lives and/or property in a proven, efficient, and affordable way. Emitters also allow transit vehicles timely maneuverability through traffic intersections by granting or extending green signals.
Potential Applications Include:
Providing high-priority or right-of-way for emergency vehicles at properly equipped intersections
Providing low-priority or sustained-green for transit vehicles at properly equipped intersections
Immediate access to restricted, automatic gated entries (such as those controlled by TOMAR’s Strobeswitch™)
Which Emitter Series Do I need?
TOMAR STROBECOM II™ emitters are available in two versions, depending on the emergency vehicle preemption system installed in the desired area of operation:
3065 Series Emitters are used to activate TOMAR STROBECOM II 2000, 3000, & 4000 Series products and any other non-coded optical preemption and priority control systems.
T792HL Series Emitters are used to activate TOMAR STROBECOM II OSPOCV2 & DETOC Series, along with GTT Opticom* optical preemption and priority control systems.
3065B-20V & T792HLB-20V provide a handheld or versatile version for each style of emitter
After choosing the Emitter Series, select your size between our full-sized 3x7" emitters or TOMAR's exclusive Low-Profile (LOPRO) sized emitters with pure-gold vacuum-metalized reflectors.
Why Strobe and not IR LED?
A TOMAR strobe emitter puts out over 100 times more peak infrared power in its flash than an LED emitter does. The TOMAR strobe uses some of this peak power advantage to project a substantially wider beam, making it easier for an intersection or Strobeswitch™ gate access-point to detect an approaching emergency vehicle at higher off-axis angles. This also allows TOMAR emitters to have a standard performance rating of over 2,500 feet. All of this equates to vehicle preemption taking place sooner, decreasing response times, increasing transit efficiency, and providing more safety for the community.
