EDI ushers in new safety era

Traffic control has evolved dramatically over the past century, and it’s reinventing itself once again as cities become more connected while environmental sustainability, multimodal transportation, autonomous vehicles and Big Data take hold.

While conventional traffic cabinets like the NEMA TS-1, NEMA TS-2, ITS v1, and Caltrans 33x served agencies well in the past, they can’t support the increasingly sophisticated needs of current and future smart cities.

Combining the latest standards and technological advancements, EDI says its advanced transportation controller cabinet components (ATC) deliver increased reliability, functionality, and ease of maintenance – and that’s just to start.

Its compact size and modular design make it a breeze to install, configure and expand while its high-density components can be arranged (and rearranged) to accommodate a broad range of intersection types and operations. It also offers a significant safety upgrade, for both drivers and technicians. Its CMU current load monitoring detects a dark approach immediately, and its majority low-voltage components make installation and maintenance much safer. Add to that true LED compatibility that can support the latest ultra-low-power LED signals, and EDI says it’s no surprise the ATC standard has had the fastest adoption rate of any cabinet standard in history.  

EDI says it remains committed to driving forward innovations in life-saving technology, now alongside its partners at Synapse ITS, a transportation technology platform focused on increasing roadway safety, efficiency and accessibility through innovative infrastructure.
