Err….Yes

Where peds are type 0 appearance and across a side road they are potentially running for a long time (let’s say 16 hrs a day & potentially upto 4hrs continually overnight. On brushed motors (quite rare now) the build up of heat and carbon causes the motors to seize within 12-18 months, on non-brushed motors the heat builds up within the feedback circuit and causes the unit to stop altogether. It would be interesting to see what lifespan these motors have at type 1 appearances?
