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 factory warranty, gratis hardware and firmware updates, minor repairs, a formal test report, new warranty label, and recertification card for any EDI signal monitor less than 12 years old. Under this program, all signal monitors undergo rigorous testing in accordance with the EDI Quality Assurance process and ISO 9001:2008 standards 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 Sales Director Jon Muilenberg at
