Here's a few details of iNavigator's exclusive features for both iN2 and iN3 models:

  • Wireless Bluetooth communication to Push Buttons
  • Advanced “Hall Effect” pushbutton technology for longer life, durability & allows adjustable actuation force
  • 360 degree dual-side speaker output & faster ambient response
  • Rugged over-mold board protection
  • APS connectivity accessibility, and confidence with independent lab testing:
    NEMA TS2 / Temperature / Humidity / Mechanical-Shock-Vibration / Transient Surge

iN2 Specific Information   iN2 RESOURCES

An iN2 system is designed for use on intersections with existing button wires and provides the maximum features and performance possible. A Control Unit installs in the intersection Traffic Cabinet and coordinates the performance of each PBS over the existing two button wires. Some iN2 specific features include:

  • Central Control Unit in Cabinet powers Push button Stations & communicates (sends/receives data) over the 2 new or existing button wires using 24V DC PLC.
  • Digital communication & synchronization to up 16 Buttons, 4 Phases, or up to 8 phases as a BIU
  • Intersection Sound synchronization
  • Central & Remote Communication via Ethernet or Wireless (Wi-Fi & Bluetooth)
  • SNMP (email alerts) & SNTP
  • Pre-emption message Broadcasting
  • Extended Push Priority System (sounds muted)
  • TS1, TS2 (SDLC BIU), 300 Series Card – Rack Option
  • 4 Cabinet solutions/Configurations

iN3 Specific Information   iN3 RESOURCES

An iN3 system is designed for intersections where button wires do not exist, though can also be installed on intersections with button wires. A Control Unit installs in each Pedestrian Signal and connects to a PBS via 3 wires. Each system is independent of the others and each PBS responds to the messaging provided by the Pedestrian Signal Head it is connected to. The sounds are not synchronized (unless new Wireless Sync feature is activated), and some of the features on a 2-Wire system are not available. iN3 specific features include:

  • Stand alone/Independent System (nothing in cabinet)
  • Ped Head Control Unit & Cable provides Walk/DW & Power (24V DC) to Push Button Station
  • No ped button wires needed (great for pre-timed/non-actuated systems
  • Terminals are provided to allow actuation (2 button wires to call place calls)
  • 3 wire System = Power, Ground, & Data (= reduced wiring in conduits)
  • Wireless button-to-button communication provides sound synchronization & remote ped call activation
  • Pilot Light Recall feature – turns on pilot light and keeps it on during Clearance & Don’t Walk Cycles

(As a result of the technological leap of the iNavigator, it is not backward compatible with the EZ Communicator EN Navigator models.)

Control Units

  • Shelf Mount Control Unit - Now Supports BIU!!!

    This control unit is a universal control unit that can be used in any style traffic cabinet. It is designed to sit on a shelf, and interfaces to the Traffic Cabinet either through the Polara 50 pin cable assembly, or a SDLC cable. With the latest version of firmware in the iCCU-S and the latest version of the iOS or PC application, this controller now supports full bidirectional BIU capability allowing the control unit to get interval timing information and place calls to the traffic controller directly through the SDLC interface! This control unit is the power supply and signaling interface between the existing intersection Traffic Control Unit and the iN2 Navigator Push Button Stations installed on the intersection. It includes a 50 pin connector like on the CCU2EN, so that an EZ Navigator installation can be easily upgraded to a iNavigator system by changing out the push button stations and control unit, without having to do any rewiring of the cable assembly already in the cabinet. The part number for ordering is iCCU-S.
