VISTA, CA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - McCain Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of intelligent transportation systems, traffic control equipment and parking guidance solutions, today announced the Oregon Department of Transportation's (ODOT) approbation of the 2070E traffic signal controller, making it the only 2070 controller unit currently available on the ODOT Qualified Products List.

McCain's 2070E traffic controller unit is designed in full compliance with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) 2009 Transportation Electrical Equipment Specifications (TEES), designating it as the official replacement for the 2070L traffic controller. The 2070E allows users to upgrade existing intersection control technology to a more progressive, high-performance platform without replacing cabinet hardware.

"We're pleased that our 2070E is currently the only approved 2070 controller on Oregon's QPL. To that end, our 2070E controller has been widely accepted, appearing on several QPLs, including California, Oregon, Washington, and New York State, confirming its outstanding technology and reliability," said Nathan Welch, national sales manager for McCain Inc.

The 2070E traffic signal controller features 32MB of system memory and a 4MB static RAM drive for improved processing power, 32Mb data key capacity, an integrated 4-port network switch, two Ethernet ports and expansion capacity across the motherboard. The controller's OS-9 operating system supports a variety of applications based on the software control package used, including intersection control, ramp metering, variable message signs and changeable lane control. Utilizing McCain's 2033 Intersection Control Software, both 2070E and 2070L controllers can run simultaneously on the same network.
