The UK’s favourite traffic signal design software, KeySIGNALS enables engineers to produce traffic signal design drawings in AutoCAD.
Utilising a large library of symbols, you can draw, label and configure detailed traffic signal design plans quickly, ready to be printed to any scale. It also quantifies costs.
Over the 3 years I have been at TFGM, KeySIGNALS has proven to be an outstanding program.
Its consistency, updates and compatibility are the main reasons we use KeySIGNALS.
Complete Library of Signal Symbols
KeySIGNALS will help produce traffic signal design plans quickly. Large libraries of signal head symbols, which conform to TAL 01/06, are provided. KeySIGNALS library of symbols will cover every option ever required.
Ducting Layouts and Cable runs
Ducting systems can quickly be drawn, labelled and quantified. Settings allow ducting line types, duct boxes and duct descriptions to be easily customised.
KeySIGNALS can draw many combinations of shapes and colours of tactile paving. Each individual paving slab is drawn to a user specified size. Labelling routines automatically generate a full description of road markings, ducts, loops and other features.
Complex or Simple Signal Junctions
Designs from pedestrian crossings through to large complicated junctions can be created. Even Zig-zags for pedestrian crossings can be quickly drawn, both along a straight line and around a curve.
There is a library of symbols and easy to use routines for the creation of cabling, staging, SCOOT and Transyt of diagrams.
3D Drivers Eye Views
When KeySIGNALS enters the 3D driver eye view all the symbols drawn appear as 3D items. KeySIGNALS generates a driver’s 3D view automatically, which can be used as a safety audit tool for checking for obscured heads.
Tools for Novice Users
The vast library of different symbols can be a bit bewildering for novice signal engineers. KeySIGNALS has tools to help such as ‘build a head’ which allows the components of a head to be selected and the appropriate symbol automatically selected from the library.
Standard Drawing Format and Common Staff Skills
KeySIGNALS works with AutoCAD or AutoCAD Map to transform your drawing production methods. All the facilities of this world famous CAD package can be used for input, editing and output. The standard output files can be easily and quickly exchanged with other engineering and related organisations. Existing staff knowledge and resources in AutoCAD will be retained and improved upon.
3D Draped Markings for BIM and 3D Visualisations
KeySIGNALS generates 3D markings on top of Civil AutoCAD surfaces automatically . No extra effort is needed, markings are generated dynamically as you draw and adjust automatically to any editing.
BIM Data and Attributes
KeySIGNALS includes BIM attribute information on all markings. More data fields can be added on an individual or category basis to further markings. A data template manager is included so that organisation standards can be quickly propagated around workstations.
