BullDog III Control Units

  • PBCU (Push Button Control Unit) - 120 VAC Version +

    The LED on a standard BDL3 BullDog flashes momentarily each time the button is pushed. If a customer wants the LED on a button to stay on following a push, this Push Button Control Unit controls the LED so it stays on until the pedestrian walk light turns on. It takes up two slots in the detector and is powered by 120 VAC. This latching LED feature is only possible with the BDL3 and RBDL3 models.
  • PBCU-DC (Push Button Control Unit) - DC Version +

    This model performs the same latching LED function as the PBCU but is powered by DC voltage on the Detector Rack..
  • LPBCU2 - Latching Push Button Controller +

    The LPBCU2 latching push button control unit is a standalone controller designed to provide latching functionality for Polara's BullDog III (BDL3) pushbuttons. It is designed to mount to the cabinet rails inside a traffic control cabinet in several orientations. Connections to the traffic controller button input and outputs are made using separate conductors, eliminating the need for the controller to be installed in an input rack or a PBCU-EB where a rack is not available. The LPBCU2 supports 4 separate pedestrian phases with up to 5 BDL3s on each channel.
  • PBCU-EB - External Box for PBCU +

    This is a box that a PBCU or PBCU-DC can be plugged into and then wired into the traffic cabinet to facilitate latching LED Bulldog buttons when there are no card rack slots available for the PBCU or PBCU-DC to plug into.
  • PBCU-HK - Cable Assembly for a PBCU or PBCU-DC +

    This is the cable assembly hardware kit that is required for each PBCU or PBCU-DC.

    • PBCUHK - 6 ft Cable Assembly
