Traffic Signal Backup Power Systems

Make sure your traffic lights will keep working even if the power goes out with a UPS for your intelligent transportation system (ITS) and traffic signal cabinets.

Can Your Traffic Management System Handle the Unexpected?

We’re just going to say it: A traffic signal backup power system is essential. Why? It’s no secret that extreme weather events are becoming more common here in the U.S. Heavy rain, strong wind and bitter cold can lead to power outages and brownouts as utilities struggle to meet increased demand. Fluctuating power or complete outages cause traffic signals to fail or operate erratically, creating hazardous conditions for both drivers and pedestrians. The result is higher operating costs for the DOTs and municipalities that maintain intersections.

Gades Sales Company can help you develop an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to ensure your traffic signals and ITS will keep working when utility power is out. We are traffic control specialists with more than 80 years in the industry. You can count on us when you need a reliable power supply solution to ensure continued operation of traffic signals. This will keep traffic moving safely, help avoid traffic congestion and minimize accidents.
