This vandal-resistant cast-aluminum casing is available in three powder-coated colors.
For units with a 9×12, 9×15, or 9×18 sign, a sign backplate in the same material and color is included.
A raised arrow helps blind and vision impaired pedestrians align themselves with the crosswalk, and a vibrating core provides a tactile indication when the Walk sign is on.

We print our signs in-house on aluminum blanks. All right/left arrow signs are printed double sided so you don’t have to worry about having the correct arrow direction for your crosswalk.
5 x 7.75 signs fit exactly over the iDS upper body and speaker, no mounting plate required. 9 x 12, 9 x 15, and 9 x 18 signs come with a powder-coated aluminum mounting plate that matches the color of the casing. Not all designs are available in all sizes.
For installations with challenging pole positions, we offer 6- and 12-inch extended mounts, as well as height-reducing mounts for ornate poles, and adapters for mounting to solid or fluted poles.
The APS receives power and exchanges signal timing and call information with a controller in the cabinet over the existing two conductor button wires, with no new cables or antennas needed. Permits remote monitoring over SNMP, emergency and rail preemption.
The APS receives power and signal timing from a control board in the ped head over a 3-conductor cable; no other controllers or wiring to the cabinet is required.
Read more about the differences between the two wire and the three wire.
We have two forms of in-cabinet controllers: the iCCU-C2 (card-type), and the iCCU-S2 (box-type). This helps narrow down the control unit and cables appropriate to the cabinet.
Polara’s iDS Accessible Pedestrian Signals (APS) support audible beaconing, which uses an additional speaker mounted at either end of the crosswalk to help pedestrians with blindness or limited vision properly orient themselves and cross an intersection directly and safely. It is especially helpful at complex, skewed, or wide crossings.
