Edge Pointer T2


【CHARACTERISTICS】
  High visibility LEDs and reflective glass elements incorporated into the Edge
  Pointers help ensure safe driving at night.
  Edge Pointers are solar powered, allowing them to be used in remote or stand
  alone applications.
  Edge Pointers are easy to install by embedded anchor or epoxy glue onto the
  concrete elements. It can also be installed on road surfaces where traffic will not be
  so intense; the epoxy glue must be used for installing the Edge Pointers in this
  c as e.
  High performance Nickel-Metal Hydride Battery along with completely waterproof
  packaging ensures maintenance-free, continuous operation for up to 5 years after
  installation.
  Based on solar charge from daylight stored in a battery, Edge Pointers
  automatically emit 240 times per minute during evening and night hours.
  Only clean solar energy is used; there are no hazardous materials in the products.

【INSTRUCTION MANUAL】
Ⅰ. General instructions
・Application pre-cautions
The Edge Pointers are designed as an auxiliary device for traffic safety. Please read this
instruction manual carefully for correct use.

・Installation pre-cautions
<Unsuitable locations for installation>
1.    As the Edge Pointers are solar powered product, please avoid installing it in
      locations (*1) where it is in shadow during the hours from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. as
      this presents the risk of loss of function due to insufficient charging.
     (*1) Even on cloudy or rainy days, the Edge Pointers can work normally at locations
     where it will be able to receive two hours of direct daylight during the hours from
     10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
2.    Avoid installing in well-lighted locations even during the night. Due to public light
      etc., the Edge Pointers may not detect nighttime and cannot work normally.




                                                                                     SEKISUI JUSHI CORPORATION
                                                                                          3
 Edge Pointer T2


・Other pre-cautions
1. As the nickel-metal hydride battery is used to store electrical charge in the Edge
   Pointers, no electricity is stored when it is delivered from our plant. Therefore, on the
   first day of installation it may not work normally as stated in the specifications.
   However, after having been installed for one or two days, the Edge Pointers will
   begin to work normally.
2. In order to confirm whether it works before installation, please put the product
   outside where there is a lot of direct daylight (approx. 6 hours). Charging indoors
   may not give sufficient daylight even near a window.
3. We recommend installing the Edge Pointers as soon as possible in order to
   minimize the loss of battery capacity caused by long-term storage.
