EDI Brings Technology to a New Level with ATC Cabinet Solutions

Eberle Design Inc. (EDI) is at the forefront of the industry's development of the new Advanced Traffic Controller Cabinet (ATCC) – 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 is working closely with its OEM partners, and traffic management agencies wishing to deploy the ATCC in either new or upgraded intersections.
