Clearwater, March 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EchoMaster (http://echomaster.com/), global provider of vehicle safety systems and advanced driver technology, has announced the release of an all-new Left Turn Alarm safety system, built specifically for vehicles in the United Kingdom.
The LTA-1 Vehicle Turn Alert System - Enhancing Pedestrian Safety
The new alert system is known as the LTA-1. This self-contained unit is completely independent of other systems on the vehicle, and is linked directly to the turn indicator trigger. When activated, this unit delivers a 92dB warning, using a real voice recording.
The warning repeats the message "Caution, vehicle turning left", alerting vulnerable road users, cyclists, passersby and pedestrians when a vehicle is about to perform a left-hand turn.
This system is intended for use on HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicles) such as lorries and other large road-going vehicles. Research has indicated that many HGV accidents are caused due to a lack of visibility on the near side of the vehicle, and wide turning circles.
The LTA-1 (https://echomaster.com/catalog/european-products/lta-1), mounted in this dangerous blind spot, is intended to deliver an auditory cue to cyclists and others, alerting them and giving them sufficient time to avoid potential collisions. By doing so, the LTA-1 enhances both the safety of vehicle operators and other drivers, pedestrians, and individuals, preventing common accidents before they occur.
Weatherproofed And Durable, With Simple Installation
The LTA-1 unit is built out of high-quality materials and with its' IP68 rating can withstand harsh weather conditions and environments. In addition, this wholly self-contained unit is designed to be easy to install. The system connects using a standard 4-wire connection (PWR, GND, Trigger and Cancellation), and does not require any additional components, unlike most systems on the market
LTA-1 is available from authorized EchoMaster dealers (https://echomaster.com/stores) at a suggested retail price of £110.00.
