Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Guide – Recommendations and Case Study

Figure 3. Corresponding Display Sequence for PHB and Pedestrian Signal

A series of images show the activation sequence for a pedestrian hybrid beacon. Each image comprises three squares, with two squares being side by side and the third square centered below them. The two side by side squares represent the red ball lights and the centered square below it represents a yellow ball light. The steps are as follows: 1) dark until activated (all squares are black). 2) flashing yellow upon activation (the centered square has a round yellow circle in it). 3) Steady yellow (the centered square has a round yellow circle in it). 4) Steady red during pedestrian walk interval (both of the side by side squares have round red circles in them). 5) Alternating flashing red during pedestrian clearance interval (the side by side squares show that each is lit by a red signal in an alternating pattern). 6) Dark again until activated.
