Vehicular Traffic Signals

The BPC lantern is an Australian design that meets all the requirements of the Australian Standard for Traffic Signal Lanterns- AS 2144.

 BPC Traffic Lantern The signal housing is available as a sturdy aluminium die cast, light aluminium extrusion or polycarbonate UV protected. The metal body lanterns have a longer life. However, the polycarbonate signal is cheaper and much lighter in weight.

The visors are fabricated aluminium or polycarbonate while the doors are injection moulded. The doors open with a small pin hinge device and there is no need for special tools. In fact it is possible to open the doors with one hand. The doors hinge on both sides and so open from left to right or from right to left. The double sided opening makes access to the optical system extremely easy. The interior is roomy and tidy and the wiring is to Australian Standards.

The Optical Assembly

All BPC optical assemblies meet the requirements set out in the Australian standard, AS 2144. All of the components have a locating key to ensure that the manufacturer and maintenance crews assemble the optics correctly. That means that the optics will always be assembled as intended.

There are two different types of assemblies, distinguished by whether the lamp is mounted from the front or back of the reflector. Both assemblies utilise a low voltage quartz halogen lamp that has a life of approximately 6000 hours. The use of this lamp requires the use of a transformer. The transformer that BPC uses is an energy efficient toroidal transformer that also helps to reduce the entire weight. The toroidals are manufactured in Queensland, Australia.
