Q-Free licenses ATC cabinet design to Control Technologies

Q-Free distributor and long-time manufacturer of traffic control cabinets, Control Technologies, is expanding their line of traffic cabinets to include the revolutionary ATC cabinet by licensing Q-Free’s innovative cabinet design. The ATC cabinet combines the best of NEMA and Caltrans-style cabinets, styles which the company has manufactured for more than 35 years.  The announcement comes as the doors to the 2022 IMSA Forum and Expo open in Orlando, FL.

The unique cabinet design by Q-Free, a global leader in mobility solutions for smart city infrastructure, meets the needs of any ATC cabinet installation – touch-safe design that protects users from accidental shock, load current monitoring to detect dark intersections, and the ability to put the intersection in flash during routine maintenance. In addition, the cabinet’s flexible design includes pass-through serial comms, remote or direct terminations, and a combo 16/18 channel output, not currently available from any other manufacturers on the market.

Control Technologies Founder and CEO Mike Day and Q-Free EVP Jimi Meshulam inked the agreement, characterizing it as ‘hitting the sweet spot’ by capitalizing on the strengths of both organizations. Q-Free is renowned for their revolutionary ATC hardware design [for traffic signal controllers and cabinets] while Control Technologies is recognized for their high-quality, high-volume manufacturing.

“ATC cabinets are a proven commodity that improve safety at the intersection, boost operational efficiencies, and take the first step towards an eco-friendlier cabinet design,” said Day. “We are excited to bring the ATC cabinet to life at our east coast manufacturing facility where we can also proudly boast that its American Made.”

Control Technologies made the announcement at the 2022 IMSA Forum and Expo taking place July 24 – 27, 2022 in Orlando, Florida, where they have the cabinet design on display at their booth #100.
