GEN-2 Ramp Signal Controller
The STREAMS® Ramp Signal Controller (RSC) manages the most demanding ramp metering sites by providing an advanced and coordinated ramp metering capability through the centralised STREAMS® platform.
The RSC is used in conjunction with a STREAMS® Field Processor (FP) to provide lamp signal switching with inbuilt AC lamp current monitoring and remote reporting functionality. Sites requiring ramp metering signs can be accommodated using the FP’s RS232/422 serial ports with the option of vehicle detectors to meet the needs of ramp metering site configurations. Support is provided for Extra Low Voltage (ELV) LED lanterns which provide greater safety for both maintenance personnel and motorists.
The RSC is a durable controller that is designed to operate reliably 24/7 with IP55 dust and water ingress protection and can operate in a variety of modes including metered, unmetered, “Freeway Ramp Closed” and (optionally) in pre-designated cycles of six and nine seconds.
