Traffic Group Signals | A Sustainable Choice: Traffic Group Signals Launches New Evo ACM
Driving forward with its ambitious sustainability strategy to support the country’s move towards net zero, Traffic Group Signals has launched its eco-conscious Evo ACM series.
Pioneered as a significant PX upgrade to the established Evo Multi product line, the returned metalwork and electronics are recycled and remanufactured to create a new, modern and environmentally responsible signal.
In direct response to customer requirements, the new Evo ACM series also provides greater communications reliability, improved signalling efficiency and better battery security, delivered with a striking new signal head.
Improving journey time through roadworks by 50%, Traffic Group Signal’s AutoGreen technology has also been incorporated into the design. This includes pedestrian crossing support for two-way deployments on Evo ACM. Where multi-phase operation is required, the latest Smart VA mode minimises vehicle waiting times, prevents over-extension of green phases and enhances safety at both street and road works.
Designed to reduce signal failure and increase reliability, the Active Channel Management (ACM) system guarantees the most reliable signal performance even in the most challenging environments.
Commenting on the launch of its latest sustainable product solution, Will Credicott, Marketing Manager at Traffic Group Signals, comments: “As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability, our core focus was to develop a solution that was kind to the environment while improving access for our customers to the very latest technology at an affordable price.
“In a first for the traffic management industry, our Evo ACM scheme allows customers the opportunity to return their old Micro and Radiomaster Evo Multi signals which will then be disassembled into material parts for remanufacturing into new Evo ACM signals. By bringing this latest product to market, our customers can invest in a product solution which affords the very best functionality and experience but doesn’t cost the earth.”
Made from 50% recycled plastic the new signal head improves aerodynamics and reduces weight, while retaining the existing electronic components. This will enable updated signals amongst the fleet and on the road to be instantly identified.
Formed in 2019, Traffic Group Signals is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of advanced portable and temporary traffic signal products.
