5. 6. 7. 8. APRIL 02 Issue 52 | March / April 2016 2016 BERGHAUSNEWS Overview: safely through the roadworks with mobile ProTec crash barriers ProTec 50 ProTec 100 With just 10 cm planning-relevant width, the new ProTec 50 is the narrowest mobile road restraint system by Berghaus up to now, and also the lightest, weighing just 28.7 kg per metre. Containment level T1/W2, ASI value A. All crash barriers in the ProTec family are always connected by a force-fit transition – naturally also as a cross-system solution or connected to stationary road restraint systems. The compact mobile crash barrier ProTec 100 fulfils containment level T3/W2 with an outstanding ASI value of 0.2 (A). Only 12 cm is needed as planning-relevant width. Another advantage of all ProTec barriers is that the flexible reflectors are protected in recesses and can't be torn off by passing vehicles. Furthermore, they are always fitted at the same height on all ProTec systems. ProTec 120 / ProTec 121 The ProTec 120 mobile crash barrier manages with a planning-relevant width of just 14 cm in containment levels H1/W5 and T3/W2. The new model variant ProTec 121 with the same dimensions has been successfully tested with T3/W1. All ProTec systems have a wide opening to let water through, preventing any puddles from accumulating at the barrier. ProTec 50 City ProTec-Tor 50 The new mobile crash barrier ProTec 50 City is the ideal choice for professional traffic safety in the urban setting. The "handy" element length of 2 m, a planning-relevant width of 10 cm and the low element weight of 23.5 kg per metre make this crash barrier particularly suitable for city use while offering a containment level of T1/W2 and an ASI value of A. Tested in impact tests according to the strict stipulations of DIN EN 1317 for 80 km/h. In addition, the speed limit through urban roadworks is usually reduced to 30 km/h which makes theProTec50Cityevensafer! ProTec-Tor – speedy access for emergency services The ProTec-Tor can be opened quickly by hand by the police, fire brigade or emergency services. All it takes is for a cotter pin to be pulled in front of and behind the ProTec-Tor elements to remove the locking wedge and open the crash barrier. Fitted at regular intervals or at strategic points e.g. before and after tunnels, with the ProTec-Tor the crash barrier can be opened in next-to-no time for all emergency services to drive through – no tools needed! ProTec 160 The mobile crash barrier ProTec 160 fulfils containment level H1/W4 and needs a planningrelevant width of just 18 cm. ProTec 160 can be used for all applications as per ZTV-SA (A to E).

(To comply with the TL-LSA, in Germany traffic lights for crossing traffic flows must be connected by cable). In contrast to the competition, a crossroads traffic light consists of four identical full traffic lights that can be combined at random, instead of one transmitter and three receivers. Different modes can also be mixed, for example: main road with green phase extension and side road (or roadworks exit) on request MPB 4400, radio-controlled signal system, vehicle-actuated for alternating one-way traffic, can be extended through to crossroads control Technical features as MPB 3400, with the following in addition: Simple handling with menu-driven handheld terminal for up to 4 signal groups Programming possible for up to 12 signal groups with maximum 24 monitored signal heads and up to 24 parallel signal heads per laptop with AmpelTools Printout of all relevant data as per RiLSA and TL-LSA possible from the working traffic lights on site Timed program changeover with day and week programs for flexible traffic control Also for pedestrians, local public transport, coordination of progressive signalling, SMS module, fire brigade control, and much more besides.
Traffic Technology • Mobile Crash Barrieres 5. 6. 7. 8. APRIL 2016 03 Innovation at the Intertraffic: mobile remote traffic-light controller EPB24 The new mobile traffic-light controller EPB 24 multiprocessor controls temporary signalling systems at major crossroads with minimum timing and cabling requirements. The master and slave controllers in the EPB 24 series can be used for local control of up to 24 signal groups with maximum 48 power cards for 96 fully monitored three-aspect LED signal heads. The controller is programmed by PC or laptop with the menu-driven graphic AmpelTools software. All necessary signalrelated records can be printed out directly from the controller for checking and as verification. The control components for the master controller and individual slaves are accommodated in IP 55 cabinets. The operating panel and all control-relevant parts for the master are accommodated in separately accessible locked cabinet compartments in 19" design. Depending on the application, the customer can put together his own EPB 24 master/slave controller system from four different types. New Berghaus product catalogue 2016 / 2017 The new EPB 24 Master crossroads controller with colour display, showing all signal statuses at a glance. For example, there is an EPB 24 master with power cards for 8 signal groups and a master in a small housing without power cards. There are also two different versions for the EPB 24 slaves: on the one hand with power cards for 8 signal groups, or as a slave for 4 signal groups in a small housing that can be fitted to a mast. The advantage of using a local controller system such as EPB 24 that can have several slave controllers physically remote from the master is that far less cabling is required because it is no longer necessary to bring all cables together to a central point above the carriageways. All that's needed is to connect the traffic light signal heads with the nearest controller. The controllers themselves only need two cables: one for the data bus and one for the power supply. There is no need for central 230V supply: the individual controllers can be simply connected individually to the nearest 230V power supply point, depending on the conditions on site. The standard EPB 24 multiprocessor controller offers many modes and additional functions, such as fixedphase or vehicle actuated (VA) mode with daily or holiday program; VA-mode with green-phase extension or green on request; request mode (continuous red default); coordination mode (progressive signalling with GPS); manual/blinking/blanking; test mode (process without outside system); clock mode (checking signal heads for correct connection and assignment); changing green phase parameters and progressive signalling parameters while the system is in operation, and reprogramming without switching the system off. The new EPB 24 multiprocessor controller system offers the greatest possible safety. Thanks to the modular concept with state-of-the-art master/slave units, the system is ready for use in next-to-no time with only minimum cabling requirements.

Michael Kronenberg was honoured for two 10-year periods with the company. The qualified radio and TV technician was first employed by Berghaus from 1991 to 2001, initially in production and then a period in service and rentals, followed by many years on the in-house sales team. In 2005 he came back to Berghaus, where his technical background and good knowledge of Berghaus's comprehensive product range meant that he was destined for designing technical descriptions, catalogues and brochures. Today he is responsible for almost all printed matter by Berghaus andAVS. Guido Krämer joined Berghaus in 1985 as an apprentice electrician, with his training taking him through all the departments from production through to service. He quickly became a traffic light expert. After completing his vocational training, he joined the rentals department, where he continues to work today in this interesting, varied aspect of traffic safety. He makes successful use of his more than 30 years of professional experience as dispatcher for AVS Overath, where he runs and coordinates the assignments for service teams dealing with mobile traffic light systems, signage and traffic safety. Andreas Dorff has accumulated an impressive tenure of Long-standing employees and managing directors (from left to right): Michael Kronenberg (two sets of 10 years), Ralf Gressler, (MD Peter Berghaus GmbH), Guido Krämer (30 years), Axel Keller (MD AVS Overath GmbH), Andreas Dorff and Uwe Banischewski (both 35 years) and Dieter Berghaus (MD AVS Verkehrssicherung GmbH). 35 years. He began his career at Berghaus as an apprentice electrician in 1980. Back then, production and rental activities were still all in one and the same company. Andreas Dorff therefore swiftly acquired comprehensive professional know-how in many areas, including stints now and then in the metalworking shop. Today he is involved among others in the production of mobile traffic light systems, LED illuminated arrows, LED blinking and flashing lights, LED temporary traffic control light systems and much more besides. Many apprentices have acquired their know-how about producing Berghaus's extensive product range fromAndreas Dorff. Uwe Banischewski also looks back on 35 successful years with the company. He joined Peter Berghaus GmbH in 1980 after completing his training as a power electronics technician. For many years he was involved in the production of traffic light controllers. Thanks to his wealth of professional experience in this field, today Uwe Banischewski works on the development and programming among others of the user-friendly software for our mobile crossroads controllers and runs the technical support for this product segment. For more than 20 years, he has joined forces with operations manager Alfred Wurth to hold the popular traffic light training courses, which means that he has therefore trained well over 2,000 traffic light experts.
