eSTOP® Portable
Traffic Signal System

Saving lives and reducing injuries, ARROWES’ eSTOP® is the solution to remove traffic controllers from working in live traffic.  Australia’s first Type-1 approved Portable Traffic Signal System (PTSS) is the new benchmark for roading safety. It has now been made mandatory in certain states for high-speed and high-risk worksites.

Trials by a Tier One company confirmed a 93% reduction in near misses.

eBOOM in connection with eSTOP

The eSTOP® is a powerful safety equipment and the industry knows it.  It is currently used by tier-one companies across Australia and New Zealand and has been made mandatory in certain states in high-speed and high-risk work sites.  Here is what our customers love about the eSTOP®:

  • More safety for their people – Traffic controllers are no longer on the frontline of heavy, unpredictable traffic
  • Great visibility – It stands out and can be viewed from a greater distance, giving motorists more time to react
  • Reduces the impact of weather – In overcast and foggy conditions, motorists often cannot see traffic controllers. The eSTOP will prevent accidents in all weather conditions
  • No more abuse from motorists – Traffic controllers are safely away from the roads and irritable motorists
  • Sun safety – Traffic controllers can stand in the shade away from harmful rays, fatigue, and dehydration

  • Type-1 approved across Australia and New Zealand
  • Fail-safe features to prevent 2 green lanterns at the same time
  • Tilt and rotation alarms
  • Ergonomic design with robust, lightweight components of max 8.4 kg
  • Portable and easy to assemble
  • Integrated target board (compulsory in NSW & NZ) PATENT ID 2020100318
  • 15 hours battery life
  • Small Hand Remote Controller (HRC), UV protected, rated IP65 with a range of up to 400 m, able to control up to 2 lanterns
  • Handling protection, IP65-rated cable connections at all device parts to make reverse connections impossible
  • Adjustable tripod legs for uneven surfaces, adjustable height
  • Wind-load tested
  • Fully encrypted for advanced cybersecurity

eSTOP® AUTO – Patent Application ID: 2020901429

Provides all features of the eSTOP®, plus the following:

  • Managing up to 4 portable traffic lanterns
  • Easy and simple set up (configuration of waiting- and clearance time) via latest HRC X
  • Human supervision only, no human intervention required after activation of AUTO mode
  • Ability to operate in AUTO and MANUAL mode
  • Up to 2km distance with clear line of sight
  • Vehicle actuated : override Auto mode when vehicle is detected (available as option)

In its standard configuration, each eSTOP® lantern can be controlled either by one person when PAIRED, or two people when independently PAIRED.

In Pair mode, one traffic controller can control two lanterns at the same time using the Hand Remote Controller (HRC). In this mode of operation, the fail-safe feature ensures no two green lanterns are on at the same time.

The eSTOP® Multi has the ability to control up to 4 lanterns with a single HRC.

In Multi Pair mode, one button will control two lanterns simultaneously.  For example, when deployed on one end of a two-lane road to ensure visibility for both lanes or to control the exit of a construction site and temporarily close all traffic when mobile plants leave.

Patent Application ID: 2020901429

The eSTOP® AUTO provides a portable, safer alternative to heavy and hard-to-handle trailer-mounted portable traffic lights. Simple to use, the eSTOP® AUTO applies pre-programmed logic and regulates traffic based on human supervision only.

The embedded vehicle detecting radar ensures the shortest waiting times and can overrule “GREEN” periods in case no vehicle is approaching, allowing the waiting vehicle on “RED” to proceed. A countdown embedded in the yellow traffic light engages with waiting motorists to avoid situations of jumping the “RED” light, or frustrated motorists.

Based on the most deployed eSTOP® solution across Australia and New Zealand – the eSTOP® AUTO is extremely effective and portable, allowing for fast deployment. This provides frontline workers with safer work environments in situations where they would otherwise have to work without any traffic control solution. such as emergency jobs and working on bend roads.

Protective, secure, and easy to carry hard case for lanterns, target boards (if selected), and batteries. Bags are also provided for tripod legs.

Front and rear camera recordings provide further protection for front-line workers and evidence in insurance cases. Camera footage includes GPS location, time-stamp as well as traffic light status. Recordings are embedded on SD card.
