Peek Introduces the ATC-1000 Traffic Controller
PALMETTO, FL - May 28, 2009 - Peek Traffic announces the release of a brand new traffic controller to their ATC line. The ATC-1000(TM) Advanced Traffic Controller has been designed from the ground up to be the definitive solution when it comes to advanced features, standards compliance, ease-of-integration, and intelligent ergonomics. The Controller is available in the North American and International traffic control markets.
The ATC-1000 uses NTCIP communications natively and is entirely compatible with Peek's IQ Central® traffic management system, as well as many other traffic management systems. The controller has been designed with a unique interchangeable system of
Input/Output (I/O) modules, D modules, and communications modules, making it highly adaptable to many types of network and protocol environments.
The following I/O modules are available right now:
o NEMA TS2 Type 1
o NEMA TS2 Type 2
o LMD 40
This modular architecture means that the ATC-1000 is a plug-in replacement in heritage cabinets that currently house Multisonics, Traconex, LMD 40, LMD 9200, or HMC-1000 controllers. However, with the NEMA modules available, the controller can also be fitted to the latest cabinet designs just as easily. Optional 'D' modules are available to make the controller easily adaptable to a wide range of specialized uses.
The ATC-1000 can be programmed in a variety of ways: using the easy-to-understand front panel controls and display, using Peek's IQ Link direct connection utility, or via IQ Central's sophisticated central editing environment.
The most powerful feature of the Linux-based ATC-1000 is that it runs a dual traffic engine, meaning that it can be switched back and forth between NEMA phase-based and pre-timed interval-based operation.
