With a goal to maximize viewability and flexibility of a safety light product on a race track, RaceAmerica designed a digital version incorporating industrial grade video panels manufactured by RaceAmerica. Full compatibility with existing RaceAmerica Track Safety Light product line is maintained by incorporating the same control electronics and PC control software. The result is our Digital Safety Flag product line designed for larger race tracks capable of displaying full fabric flag images. DSF version 2 is now 50% brighter and 15% larger.

Digital Safety Flags are available in several models to operate from standard AC power or DC power sources via a 150W upverter. Data communications between the tower and the Digital Safety Flags can be through a proprietary wireless link or connected to the track's existing IP Network. The combination of wireless and DC powered enables the Digital Safety Flag to be mounted at locations where no power or communications are available.
