General Description
A HAWK Beacon, also known as a Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon, is a special type of beacon used to stop traffic and allow pedestrians to cross safely at marked, un-signalized crosswalks. According to MUTCD standards (Chapter 4F 2009 Edition), HAWK Beacons should only be installed at marked crosswalks.

HAWK Beacon systems include:
• Two 3-signal beacon assemblies for each approach (minimum requirement)
• One pedestrian signal head (WALK/DON'T WALK) at each end of the crosswalk (countdown timer optional)
• Pedestrian activation (push-button or passive activation)

We now offer an off-the-grid, ready-to-install, solar powered wireless HAWK Beacon using our innovative Mikrós EIC DC Controller with a built-in conflict monitor. Our solar systems include a charge controller, battery, and solar panels that mount on a pole or mast arm.
