Stalker Radar Speed Signs and Speed Trailers

Many studies have concluded that radar speed signs and speed trailers are very effective at creating traffic safety. Attention-getting strobes capture even more attention. Stalker radar offers a wide variety of pole- and trailer-mounted radar speed signs to fit your individual needs and budget.

SAM

The Stalker Speed Awareness Monitor, or SAM, is a smaller radar speed trailer that offers big capabilities. Featuring 18” amber LED characters that are legible from distances of up to 1,000’ (305 m), this radar speed trailer can detect vehicle speed up to 1,200’ (366 m) away and collect traffic statistics with it’s built-in Stalker K-band Doppler radar.

Message Center 360

Our flagship radar speed trailer, the MC360 offers the largest display board options of any of our signs (up to 4’x8’/1.22m x 2.44m, and 3’x6′ / .91m x 1.82m), variable messaging capabilities, programmable 365-day calendar, speed detection, traffic data collection, and optional ALPR/ANPR-ready (automated license plate recognition) power system.

The MC360 truly does it all!

SAM-R

The SAM-R is everything the SAM radar speed sign is, and a little bit more. Still featuring Stalker’s famous K-band radar for speed and traffic data collection, and an 18” LED character display, the SAM-R’s display is also able to rotate, making it much easier to set up anywhere you need a radar speed trailer.

Mini-Message Trailer

An ultra-portable trailer that still has a full range of capabilities, the Mini-Message Trailer combines the towable convenience of a trailer with the variable messaging and radar speed sign capabilities of our PMG sign. Three screen sizes available, with optional solar panel for virtually unlimited display options.

PMG

Pole-Mounted Graphic Display

Available in 3 sizes, the PMG can be used as a radar speed sign, a traffic data collector, and a variable messaging sign to display virtually any message, graphic, or animation you desire. Messages can be programmed and scheduled using a PC or via the iOS or Android Speed Sign App. Mount it to a pole or vehicle, or use it freestanding with its optional handle and feet.

Optional external triggers allow the sign to be paired with our Flood Sensors and other NTCIP-enabled equipment to warn drivers about water on the road, fire trucks entering the roadway, and more. Other available options include white, amber, or red/blue strobes and solar power.

Messaging Sign FAQs

If you need a radar speed sign that can be easily moved and set up in moments, then one of our radar speed trailers is for you. They feature solid all-steel construction and graffiti-resistant paint, and all models can be easily moved by one person.  The MC360 and SAM-R trailers feature signs that can be rotated 90 degrees for ease of towing, and then can be positioned at any angle once in position to create the best visibility based on the location you have chosen.

 

PMGs are a great choice for a set-it-and-forget it traffic calming and messaging solution for neighborhoods, school zones, and other areas where you’d like to have a semi-permanent sign and don’t have room for a trailer or the need to frequently move your sign. When paired with optional solar panels, the sign can run indefinitely.

All of our speed signs and messaging trailers feature Stalker’s famous K-Band radar to accurately measure, display, record traffic speeds, and record traffic statistics. If all you will ever need to do with your sign is measure speed, then signs such as our SAM or SAM-R models will work great for you. But if you think you’ll ever want to display any sort of message, graphic, or animation- including things as simple as a “SLOW DOWN” message when a driver is exceeding a preset speed threshold- then you will want to choose between the MC360, the PMG, or the Mini-Message options.

The main advantage of our larger trailer and sign options is the increased range. The large screen size of the MC360 radar speed trailer allows it to be legible from up to 1000’ (305 m) away, and the larger size of the trailer is able to accommodate a radar that can detect speeds from up to 1,200’ (365 m) away.

That being said, even our smallest trailer and pole-mounted sign options are legible and can detect speeds from up to 600’ (183 m) away.

Yes, all of our radar speed trailers and messaging signs can collect traffic data when you add the optional Stalker Statistics Package, which can then be downloaded and plugged into our proprietary Easy Analyst software. Create beautiful charts, graphics, and reports to submit for grants, to city councils, or to law enforcement agencies to support your traffic safety efforts.

Solar is a great option to add onto most signs and trailers, as it can extend the running life of your sign almost indefinitely. However, if you will be using your sign in areas with frequent fog or overcast weather, then solar by itself may not be able to create enough power to operate your sign without interruption. Our friendly sales representatives can help you figure out the best solution for your individual needs.

Battery life varies between sign models and is shorter in areas with more traffic as more traffic data will be stored and the lights will be displaying more frequent messages. Our signs are equipped with efficient LED lights that feature Pulse Width Modulation to keep the display consistent throughout the battery’s discharge cycle and to extend battery life for as long as possible. 

You can add white, amber, or red/blue strobe lights to any of our radar speed trailers or messaging signs (available colors vary by sign/trailer).

In addition, you can add a simulated camera flash to the mini-message trailer.

For the most part, all of our radar speed signs and messaging trailers are “plug-and-play” ready, especially if you have chosen one of our pre-programmed message or animation packs. If the pre-programmed options don’t quite match what you want to say, new messages, graphics, and animations can be easily added via a variety of input methods, depending on the device, including console,  the iOS and Android apps, the PC-based software, or the web-based remote access site.

The radar portion of your sign also arrives ready for use. A quick tuning fork test assures that your sign is receiving and recording data. 

Yes, they can. The MC360 can be programmed to read “YOUR SPEED” on the screen and can acquire the speed of vehicles from up to 1200’ (365 m) away. “YOUR SPEED” FRAMES are included with the SAM and SAM-R trailers, and can optionally be added to PMG signs and Mini-Message Trailers.

Yes, they are.

The MC360 and Mini Message Trailer are NTCIP compliant when equipped with appropriate communication options.

Yes. The MC360 comes with a 5 year warranty, and the SAM, SAM-R, PMG, and Mini-Message Trailers all come with a 2 year (+1 additional year optional) warranty.

All of the radar units for our radar speed signs and speed trailers are assembled at our facility in Richardson, Texas, USA. The all-steel trailers are manufactured just a few miles away another local facility. Stalker Radar is Buy America Act compliant.
