McCain Inc. Utilizes Hardwire NEMA Adaptor to Aid Cost Savings

A Cost Effective Solution to Promote Traffic Control Equipment Interoperability

VISTA, CA--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - McCain Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of intelligent transportation systems, traffic control equipment and parking guidance solutions, today announced San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG) employment of the Hardwire NEMA Adaptor, allowing the utilization of a 2070 or 170 traffic signal controller in a NEMA cabinet.

McCain's Hardwire NEMA Adaptor facilitates the conversion of a 2070 or 170 traffic signal controller into a NEMA controller that is compatible with a wide range of cabinet manufacturers. The converted controller features full I/O capability with all three NEMA TS 1 standard connectors, A, B, and C, as well as a D connector as defined in Caltrans Transportation Electrical Equipment Specifications (TEES).

The Hardwire NEMA Adaptor provides agencies with more than 75 percent cost savings by converting 2070 or 170 traffic control equipment to a NEMA cabinet compatible traffic signal controller, as opposed to the costs associated with replacing the controller cabinet. 

"When a comprehensive hardware upgrade is not feasible due to budget restrictions, the traffic industry must design alternative solutions to help agencies achieve their goals," said Dave Weir, California sales manager for McCain Inc. "We're proud to be able to meet our customers' needs through unique solutions like the Hardwire NEMA Adaptor."
