According to Keith Manston, Head of Product Management, the Plus+ system uses advanced technology to distribute intelligence and control around the intersection, rather than it all being centrally located in the controller cabinet. “Much reduced cabling for data and power is at the heart of the new system which is serially linked and fully supported by a complete range of dedicated components”, he says.
“The aim of the Plus+ solution is to offer significant reductions in on-street installation and maintenance time, improved safety and yielding significant reductions in total deployment costs compared to conventional methods”, he adds.
“But it’s not all about the technology. Plus+ will be safer and quicker to install, easier to maintain and less expensive”, states Manston. Thanks to the use of significantly fewer and lighter cables and with the new approach making it possible to pre-assemble signals and use low-level access poles, installation engineers will spend less time working on-street reducing risk and public disruption.
