Peek Traffic’s ATC-1000 is the flagship ATC controller in the company’s line of “modular-build,” standards-based controllers. Designed for ease-of-use and easy adaptability, the traffic controller features include: the company’s proven ATC engine board; a full line of communications options, including multiple serial ports, multiple Ethernet ports, and a USB firmware and memory port; and a range of I/O and D modules.
The ATC-1000 controller uses NTCIP communications natively and is entirely compatible with Peek’s “IQ Central” traffic management system. Interchangeable I/O and D modules allow the ATC-1000 controller to be used in the latest cabinets, but it also will work as a plug-in replacement in older, non-standards-based cabinets that currently house Multisonics, Traconex, LMD 40, LMD 9200 and HMC-1000 controllers, which will provide an upgrade path for older intersection control hardware. Programmable from the front panel via USB database download, IQ Link direct connection or IQ Central’s sophisticated central system environment, the unit is a powerful device that should be used wherever NEMA, NTCIP and ATC compatibility is required.
Northwest Signal continues the tradition of supplying custom cabinets to our customers’ exacting requirements. Washington’s Clark County, the most rapidly growing county in the Evergreen State, has tapped NWS to become a certified supplier of its particular cabinet design. Based on the full-size R cabinet, it features a front and rear door, anti-graffiti coating, modular detection-racking system, an LED intersection display, and many other features that make it suitable for the IP-based technology used extensively by the county. Northwest Signal has complete cabinet design, fabrication and QC resources available for any client or project, both large and small.
In Fall 2012, the City of Tyler, Texas, became the latest municipality to implement Northwest Signal’s state-of-the-art adaptive signal control algorithms. Using radar and video-based detection well in advance of the stop bar, the system measures volume and occupancy to determine the best use of available green time — in real time! Changes made to the split time occur instantly, eliminating delays to the next cycle as many other adaptive signal control systems do.
The system operates using Northwest Signal’s M1 Advanced Adaptive NEMA controllers or 2070 and ATC controllers. Contact Northwest Signal for more information about adaptive signal control technology.
