iNX FAQs

What’s the difference between APS and audible information devices (AID)?

APS are used at crossings where visual Walk/Don’t Walk signals are used, to give pedestrians with vision loss equivalent information audibly. AID are used at crossings with flashing warning lights that warn vehicles of the presence of a crossing pedestrian, such as rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs), round pedestrian-activated beacons, in-roadway warning lights, and others.

What kind of signals can be activated by the iNX?

The iNX is compatible with rectangular rapid flashing beacons (RRFBs), in-roadway warning lights, round pedestrian-activated beacons, and other approved pedestrian warning lights.

Is the iNX compatible with advance flasher signals?

Yes, if a communication method external to the iNX (e.g. radios or wires) has been created between the RRFB and the advance flasher.

What is the difference between the iNX and the iNS?

The iNX is an Audible Information Device (AID); the iNS is an Accessible Pedestrian Signal (APS).

The iNX provides an accessible way for pedestrians to activate pedestrian warning lights at unsignalized crossings. Because there is no Walk/Don’t Walk signal at these crossings, the iNX cannot tell the pedestrian when it is safe to cross, and lacks the vibration and percussive audible Walk signal of the iNS.

The iNS provides pedestrians with audible and tactile signals equivalent to the visible Walk/Don’t Walk, to allow pedestrians with blindness or limited vision to cross with confidence.
