Eberle Design Inc.’s iCITE™ Data Aggregator DA-300™ Offers Real-Time Traffic & Arterial Data with Cabinet Monitoring

The DA-Data Aggregator® Model DA-300™ provides cost effective remote access to real-time performance measures and traffic data from any isolated or networked intersection or arterial roadway. It easily interfaces with any make or model of traffic cabinet or controller (NEMA, ATCC, or Type 33X), to provide real-time traffic counts and parsed data. It offers Wi-Fi-based roadway network travel time and monitors and reports on mission critical traffic cabinet or intersection faults via SMS or email. The DA-Data Aggregator® Model DA-300™ is also designed to endure temperature extremes and well suited for solar powered applications.
