Automated flaggers still require an operator to control them, but nobody must get in the way of traffic. This is critical for jobs where the speed limit is normally high, as these areas can be especially dangerous for flaggers. A wirelessly operated gate system allows the operator to stop the flow of traffic and allow it to resume as needed.
Flagger-Mac Automated Flagger
The Ver-Mac Flagger-Mac is a unique tool takes the danger out of flagging while making it a more cost-effective operation.
- Remote operated up to 800 feet
- Conveniently mobile
- Energy-efficient solar power
- Break-away arm in case of impact
- V-Touch Controller
Thanks to the Flagger-Mac, you don’t have to worry nearly as much about the safety of flaggers. A flagger can control this device from a nearby location, allowing them to open and close the gate arm based on information they are receiving. The gate arm features a breakaway design, so it doesn’t cause any damage to cars or flaggers if somebody drives through it, which helps keep people even safer.
The Flagger-Mac features two 12-inch lamps, one red to signal a stop and one yellow to let people know to slow down. A gate with a flag provides a further warning to approaching traffic, while the breakaway design of the gate makes it safe for everyone involved.
Like many Ver-Mac products, the Flagger-Mac can be controlled remotely via the V-Touch controller. This controller simply connects to the Flagger-Mac and allows for complete control of the gate and light system. If you need to put the gate down and let people know to stop, you can do that with the touch of a button. You can also lift the gate and change the light to yellow with the touch of a button, making the Flagger-Mac one of the safest flagging tools available.

Types of Automated Flagger Assistance Devices
The Ver-Mac Flagger-Mac is a trailer-mounted gate device designed for flagging operations. The Flagger-Mac system consists of two gate devices that are operated using a wireless remote controller. This technology allows the operator to fully control both devices from a safe location outside the work zone. Our Flagger-Mac also has an innovative breakaway arm mechanism in case of impact, adding an additional layer of protection for your workers while protecting your equipment.
These automated flaggers can come in different model types:
- Solar-powered model that is best for short-term projects
- Generator or outlet powered
- Battery-powered model that is best for short-term projects and remote locations
- A model that uses a stop/slow paddle
- A model that uses a signboard
Each Flagger-Mac unit is equipped with two 12-inch lamps, (1) red and (1) yellow, one gate with a flag, a V-Touch controller with wireless remote, and stealth technology.
A modem is included with each unit, which allow a connection with the JamLogic software and open the door to all its benefits. Worksafe TCI will help you with the selection process. These devices can be large, so we will ensure you have the knowledge and equipment to set up and maintain the automated flagger.
How do automated flagger assistance devices work?
After placing this machine on the road, the units are controlled by robust wireless devices that tells the device when to stop or slow traffic.
With a device like the Flagger-mac automated flagger from Worksafe TCI, a human controls it with a remote. Remote controls allow you to control it with the touch of a button.

Where to Place Automated Flagger Assistance Devices
We often use automated flaggers in very high-traffic areas like highways where human flaggers are not safe.
However, they can be used in many different settings like:
- Local roads
- School zones
- Parking lots
- Construction sites
- Utility work zones
There are generally three main places to put automated flagger assistance devices:
The Travel Lane
This is the most common spot for automated flaggers. They are placed in the lane of traffic that needs to be stopped or slowed down.
On the Shoulder
In some cases, we place automated flaggers on the shoulder of the road. This spot is often used in work zones where there is no room in the travel lane for the device.
In the Median
Median-mounted automated flaggers stop traffic in both directions on a highway. They are placed in the middle of the road in a raised median.
Wherever we place the automated flagger, we must make sure there is enough room for the device to open and close without being in the way of traffic. There shouldn’t be any obstructions like trees, poles, or parked vehicles in the way.
We also have to make sure that the ground is level.
Why are Automated Flagger Assistance Devices Important?
High-traffic areas need direction but can be too dangerous for human flaggers. That’s where automated flaggers come in to help.
By using an automated flagger, we can help to avoid traffic jams and accidents. The flagger will stop traffic when needed and then start it back up again when it’s safe. There is little room for error with these machines.
Use them in remote locations or in cases where a human flagger may be tired and not able to properly do their job. If weather conditions are too dangerous for a human flagger, an automated flagger can be used instead.
