Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) July 08, 2014
Econolite Group, Inc. today introduced the next generation in rack mounted advanced transportation controllers - Cobalt™ RM (RackMount) ATC. Cobalt is the first Series of controllers to feature a new platform in user interface designed to accommodate the mobile computing environment. In addition, Cobalt RM supports remote, wireless access from an Android tablet application – Cobalt Mobile – which connects via Wi-Fi for unparalleled convenience, enabling an authorized user the ability to work comfortably and safely from a vehicle or other location away from the cabinet.
Cobalt RM was designed to help make controller functions and programming simpler to access and manage, reducing the time required to make programming updates or perform scheduled maintenance. Cobalt RM’s graphical user interface is one of the most intuitive and hassle-free on the market today. “Cobalt RM ATC brings Cobalt’s proven ease of use and powerful programming to the 33X or RackMount cabinet marketplace,” said Econolite Group’s Chief Technology Officer Gary Duncan.
Cobalt RM ATC fully adheres to the industry’s ATC standard 5.2b, and proposed standard 6.10. Cobalt Series features an environmentally hardened seven-inch touchscreen graphics interface with the brightest color display available. It is matched with a Linux based operating system. Device connectivity includes two Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports and four Ethernet ports that include support for an external Wi-Fi device. Cobalt RM also includes a Secure Digital (SD) port to provide almost unlimited file storage capability.
Cobalt RM meets and exceeds all ATC standards, as well as the NEMA Standard for TS2 controllers, and is manufactured to ISO 9001 quality standards.
Cobalt Mobile can be downloaded for free at Google Play. A wireless router, available for purchase separately from Econolite, plugged into the Cobalt RM ATC inside the traffic cabinet provides the recommended method to remotely connect the tablet-based Cobalt Mobile application, and to access the controller’s programming and status.
