Siemens to unveil new traffic control system at Traffex 2017
First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
Siemens will unveil Plus+, a new generation of traffic controller and signals at Traffex 2017 at the NEC, Birmingham next month. The new solution includes newly designed and dedicated on-street equipment and fully integrated design, configuration and installation tools, ensuring the most efficient traffic signal implementation available today.
The Plus+ system uses advanced technology to distribute intelligence and control around the intersection, rather than it all being centrally located in the controller cabinet, with the aim of offering significant reductions in on-street installation and maintenance time, improved safety and yielding significant reductions in total deployment costs.
According to Siemens, Plus+ will be safer and quicker to install, easier to maintain and less expensive. The use of fewer and lighter cables and with the new approach making it possible to pre-assemble signals and use low-level access poles, will allow installation engineers to spend less time working on-street, reducing risk and public disruption.
