Path Master now offering Centracs Hosting
Could your municipality benefit from the features and capabilities of a central traffic system, or do you just need to upgrade your outdated closed loop system? Do you want or need the sophisticated management tools offered by a central system but don’t have the capital or the IT and engineering resources to own and maintain one? Well, Path Master has invested in a Centracs System and is offering to host your City’s intersections.
Centracs is a central traffic management system that connects multiple intersections to a single source. This streamlined approach improves efficiency because it can monitor traffic at all connected intersections and make changes to a single intersection directly from the management center.
Additionally, Centracs automatically generates real-time alerts when an intersection goes into flash, loses power, uses its battery backup, or experiences an open cabinet door. These alerts enable agencies to be more proactive about maintaining traffic flow and protecting public safety.
As part of the Centracs hosting package, Path Master will supply a new Econolite Cobalt Traffic Controller and a cellular communications device for each intersection. The cost will be spread over a five-year period billed annually. Additionally, the cost is structured on a per-intersection basis, which gives the flexibility to include as many intersections as the budget allows. We also offer a 100% guarantee on the equipment as long as the agency is under a Centracs hosting contract with us.
Many agencies continue to maintain an Econolite Aries system. Although this product may still be functioning, it is no longer supported by Econolite, and the master controllers used in this type of closed loop system are no longer manufactured or repairable. Our hosting plan provides a pathway to switch systems before issues arise that may cause traffic flow interruption.
Centracs offers many of the newest technologies and latest advancements in the traffic industry, including signal perform measures (SPM), connected vehicle capabilities, and Smart City capabilities. Communities will have access to data they have never had before. There is a large cost savings, as Path Master owns, houses and maintains the required server network. Additionally, Path Master will provide all training and support.
