Traffic and Intelligent Transportation Systems

For 15 years, Alpha has been providing Traffic UPS solutions, which enable traffic operators to better manage resources and reduce operating expenses by improving traffic controller reliability.

We offer a full family of NEMA 3R outdoor enclosures. hardened outdoor-rated Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), small to larger indoor UPS, and specialty batteries for traffic infrastructure (including traffic light intersections and signage), and Traffic ITS private wireless networking applications; including Point to Point, Point to Multipoint, Mesh Network, WiFi, Wireless System and Fiber installations that communicate with a Traffic Management Center.

Our Traffic UPS solutions are ruggedized to withstand the most extreme environmental conditions, ensuring your traffic systems will always have access to reliable power.

If your business is traffic operations, here are reasons why it makes sense to consider a Traffic UPS system:

  • Provide continual power to your operating system in the event of a power outage, sag or brown out until regular utility power is restored – even in extreme weather conditions
  • Condition and regulate the quality of the commercial power supply to your traffic system which improves reliability
  • Keep your traffic intersections flowing and prevent or minimize severe accidents
  • Reduce your operating expenses by eliminating false service call-outs and expensive truck rolls


Without a continual power supply, busy traffic intersections go dark and chaos ensues.
A properly designed outdoor battery backup system keeps your traffic intersections alive. Traffic flows, accidents/injury are minimized and lives potentially saved.
An Alpha Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) provides reliable, clean power to your traffic intersection for 8 hours or more after utility power fails.
With low upfront procurement, installation and maintenance costs, backup power is within reach of your traffic operations budget.
