Reduce Your Agency’s Liability and Maintenance Costs through EDI’s Signal Monitor Recertification Program

Traffic signal cabinets continuously operate in harsh environments and should be thoroughly tested to help ensure proper operation when conditions demand it. The Eberle Design Inc. Signal Monitor Recertification Program provides a new two-year warranty, hardware and firmware updates, minor repairs, test report, new warranty label, and a certificate of recertification for any EDI signal monitor less than 12 years old.
All signal monitors will undergo rigorous testing in accordance with our Quality Assurance and ISO 9001:2008 programs on a quick turn-around basis. 
To learn more about EDI’s Signal Monitor Recertification Program and how it can reduce your liability risk and maintenance costs, visit or contact EDI Application Sales and Technical Services Manager Matt Zinn at
