EDI Brings Technology to a New Level with ATC Cabinet Solutions

Eberle Design Inc. is at the forefront of the industry's development of the new Advanced Traffic Controller cabinet – bringing the traffic cabinet of the future into the market today. The ATC cabinet has an open architecture design that takes advantage of ultra-low power LED signals, enhanced fail-safer design, with enhanced cabinet peripheral equipment diagnostics, compact double-density size and modularity. EDI looks forward to working closely with its OEM partners, and traffic management agencies wishing to deploy the ATC in either new or upgraded intersections. For more information, kindly contact Matt Zinn, EDI Application Sales and Technical Services Manager, at
