Safetran begins shipping eco-friendly cabinets
Colorado Springs, Colo.- Safetran, an Econolite Group, Inc. company, today announced it was again awarded a two-year traffic cabinet purchase order contract from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). Meeting strict Caltrans Transportation Electrical Equipment Specifications (TEES) and quality criteria, Safetran will begin shipping its eco-friendly cabinets this month under the new contract.
The Caltrans contract marks the second time in a row Safetran has successfully competed and passed Caltrans' stringent quality assurance criteria to be awarded as the traffic cabinet supplier to the transportation agency. "This Caltrans order contract underscores our commitment to green initiatives and our continuous quality improvements, including our Caltrans dedicated customer support," said Safetran Director of Sales Greg Groves. "We're excited and honored to be awarded this Caltrans purchase order."
Safetran received the cabinet order under the new contract in April after emerging successfully from Caltrans' factory inspection program. "The process is very competitive and comprehensive," Groves continued. "This ensures that the contract is awarded to the supplier with the highest quality at all levels of operation, including offering the best available environmentally conscious products."
Safetran will supply its eco-friendly Caltrans TEES compliant 332L and 334L recyclable aluminum traffic cabinets. The cabinets feature a Model 206L (switching type) power supply - high efficiency and power factor corrected. It saves approximately 263 KWH per cabinet per year at 50 percent load over the previous generation ferroresonant-type power supply. In addition, the cabinets feature solid state relays (SSR), which eliminates all use of mercury for switches.
