What Are Traffic Control Cabinets?

Traffic control cabinets are sometimes pole-mounted, wall-mounted, pedestal mounted or integrated into pedestrian crosswalks and scenery.  These cabinets are designed to protect vital electronic controls from environmental and vandal damage.

Traffic signal control enclosures are required to meet federal, state and/or local regulations.  APX enclosures offer a flexible, modular design to promote easier cabinet access and maintenance while meeting all regulations.  APX also supplies single door flasher cabinets, double door, quad door and customized enclosures for unique applications.

In our connected world, APX traffic control enclosures also house the latest in remote communications, emergency vehicle detection, 5g autonomous controls and emergency police access.

APX’s 4X NEMA rated traffic control cabinets go a step further by offering extra protection against splashing water, direct spraying water and oil/coolant spills.  These enclosures also provide a higher level of protection against vandalism, including graffiti.
