Guardian Wave


Value & Reliability

Pedestrian Safety and decreasing the spread of germs are at the heart of the Guardian Wave, the latest touchless independent system from Campbell Company.  No longer will pedestrians have to push the same button as countless others.  With easy wiring access and configuration, the Guardian Wave APS has a simple and flexible configuration, and delivers safety, simplicity, reliability, and cost-effectiveness at any intersection.

As a testament to its simplicity, the Guardian Wave (like its predecessor the Guardian) is a cabinet-free, completely independent pedestrian system. Encompassing everything agencies know and trust about the Guardian APS and AGPS, the Guardian Wave offers greater sound quality and control, and still provides an ambient gain compensation locator tone, specific to the Guardian Wave, extended press options, vibro-tactile walk indications, and optional clearance phase indications; all adjustments and settings can be made at the pedestrian station via USB connection or Bluetooth.

Touchless Technology

The Covid-19 Pandemic has been a wake-up call for health and safety concerns across the globe. Campbell Company decided to make an impact with our products and develop touch-free options at the intersection to minimize the spread of germs & viruses and keep pedestrians safer.

Equipped with an infrared sensor for no-contact actuation, pedestrians request to cross by waving a hand in front of the wave icon near the physical push button.

With the physical push button still present and active, the Guardian Wave remains MUTCD compliant. No exclusivity or proprietary apps; the solution is available to all pedestrians.
