Description

The Model 5408-90 StormLink RWIS Lite High Water Detection System (HWDS) provides a real-time visual warning to drivers that there is flooding on the road ahead. The warning system reduces accidents on road segments that are prone to flooding.

The StormLink RWIS Lite HWDS is designed for transportation professionals that are looking for a high value, robust warning system that is simple to install and maintain. The packaged system includes a Control Station that measures the flood hazard, and two Warning Stations on each side of the hazard to warn the traveling public.

The Control Station measures the water level at the low point of the road and provides intelligent alarming when roadway flooding is occurring. Highly visible flashing LED lights at the Warning Station alert drivers to slow down, or turn around, before approaching the hazard.

A cellular gateway sends data from the warning system to the Contrail® software platform which provides data visualization, system configuration and customized alarming to agency personnel. Contrail retains a historic record of all system data and can provide the hydrograph of storm events and a record of system activation.

Communication between the Control and Warning Stations is wireless and autonomous allowing the system to work with no outside communications. The warning system utilizes low power components that enables a solar powered solution.
