MX1 Marshal Safety Radio Controller System
Wildtracks Off road activity park in Newmarket Suffolk required a replacement radio control solution for their Motocross Marshals. To cover the 1500 meters of Motocross track there are over 20 safety traffic lights to give caution, stop or start race. A number of Marshals are placed at key locations and are responsible for a number of safety traffic lights broken down in to zones. McKelvie Solutions along with Magna Electronics designed the MX1 safety Wireless Solution for track Marshals.

Marshal Radio Controller
Each Marshal radio controller can operate up to 9 zones and turn off/on three separate lights. Each radio Marshal controller can be set only to operate specific zones and a chief marshal controller to take overall control. Each Wireless Marshal controller is powered by AA batteries with a low battery LED.
Traffic Light Receiver
To obtain network coverage between Marshal and track safety traffic light receivers MESH technology extends the signal between receivers and controllers. This not only gives great coverage but gives network resilience by not having a single point of failure as found with typically wireless handheld control systems. Each receiver is weatherproof and is powered by a 12 V DC battery which is a typical voltage used by previously installed track safety lights.
