VISTA, California, August 22, 2016 – McCain Inc., a national leader in the supply of advanced transportation solutions for safety and mobility, today introduced the Backpack Cabinet, the smallest cabinet in McCain’s revolutionary ATC Cabinet Series. Standing just 25 inches tall and weighing less than 55 pounds, the cabinet offers the same advanced safety features common to all ATC Cabinets in one of the most compact designs available on the market today without sacrificing performance.
Small but mighty, the Backpack Cabinet features a first-of-its-kind combo input/output assembly that offers unrivaled configuration flexibility thanks to the introduction of universal slots, which can be used for either detection modules or switchpacks. It also includes unique swing-out assemblies that provide easy access to field wires at the rear of the cabinet.
McCain vice president of hardware engineering and one of the visionaries behind the ground-breaking design, Reza Roozitalab, P.E., could not be more thrilled to bring the Backpack Cabinet to market. “Not every intersection requires a bulky traffic cabinet,” he said. “The combo I/O enables us to offer robust and dynamic solutions for intersections with 8 or less phase/pedestrian/overlap movements – those generally served by cabinets at least twice the size and without the same safety features.”
Ideal for central business districts, school zones, and downtown areas, this lightweight cabinet can easily be pole or pedestal mounted without the need for a crane or lifting truck, saving agencies both time and money. Furnished with a single-door access point, the compact Backpack Cabinet also frees up valuable sidewalk space and supports city beautification efforts.
McCain will be showcasing the Backpack Cabinet at several upcoming industry events including the IMSA Forum and Expo, August 28-30, 2016; the ITS CA Annual Meeting, September 19-20, 2016; and the TexITE 2016 Fall Meeting, September 21-22, 2016.
