Reduce Your Liability Risk and Maintenance Costs with Reno A&E’s Signal Monitor Recertification Program

Reno A&E (RAE) is pleased to announce the launch of its Signal Monitor Recertification Program. The program provides a new factory two-year warranty, hardware and firmware updates, minor repairs, test report, new warranty label, and a certificate of recertification for any RAE signal monitor less than 12 years old. Traffic signal cabinets have to continuously operate in harsh environments and should be thoroughly tested periodically to ensure safety. The RAE Signal Monitor Recertification Program will help agencies quickly, easily, and cost-effectively perform this necessary testing task. For more information on how we can tailor a program for your agency, please contact RAE’s sales department at +1.775.826.2020 and also visit
