For Traffic Signal Engineers, it is often a challenge to test ATC Cabinet Intersection Controller programs and visualize the results. The ATC CyberCabinet software provides an Engineer with a software based solution to test and validate the functionality of an ATC Controller Unit database, without needing a full ATC5301 cabinet assembly in hardware. Produce higher quality results in less time, while reducing or eliminating the need for call-backs once the intersection is operating.
Virtual Cabinet Configuration
- The ATC CyberCabinet supports five Input SIUs, two Output SIUs and a 32-channel CMU. Project and Map files store the configuration settings of each intersection.
Main View Modes
Controller operation can be viewed and exercised at the SIU device level (Device View), or with a higher level overhead view of the intersection (Map View).
- The Device view presents SIU inputs and outputs as separate forms (devices) with a control for each IO pin; name field, status icon, and checkbox.
- The map view elevates the display to a bird's eye view of the intersection geometry. Active icons are used to drive Detector, Ped, and Preempt inputs. Programmable signal face icons display RYG controller outputs.
- A built-in map editor is used to constructs the Map view for a target intersection using a collection of active icons and road furniture icons.
A 32-channel CMU function is configured from the actual intersection Datakey parameters to validate compatibility with the Controller database.
- Conflict, Lack of Signal, Multiple, Y Clearance, Y+R Clearance, SB#1
Timeout, Local Flash, and Type 62.
Flashing Yellow Arrow (FYA)
- Full support of Flashing Yellow Arrow including Virtual Channels.
- A Previous Fault log is maintained to review any fault events captured by the CMU.
Datakey Load and Read
- The CMU Datakey parameters can be read from a file or directly
from the Datakey using a supported Datakey Reader device.
Serial Comm Trace Log
A Serial Bus #1 ‘sniffer’ function captures the HDLC frames and displays the frame data and timestamp for detailed real‐time analysis.
- Serial Comm Trace logs can be saved and Replayed to repeat and analyze a signal sequence in detail.
SIU Direct Mode
The SIU Direct Mode can be used to monitor and control a physical SIU‐2218 device in a test cabinet.
