13W Solar Cabinet Is Self Contained

(Traffic and Parking Control Co. (TAPCO))

Traffic and Parking Control Co. (TAPCO) launches its 13W self-contained solar cabinet for powering a range of intelligent warning systems. The unit weighs one-third as much traditional cabinets and features a universal mounting bracket and intuitive wiring, making it fast and easy for one person to install. Its compact size and contoured black finish also allows this solar cabinet to blend inconspicuously with its environment.


Traditional cabinets with batteries can weigh more than 30 pounds. TAPCO eliminates two-thirds of that weight by using Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries, which weigh a small fraction of traditional lead-acid batteries. Further weight reduction was achieved by employing a durable polycarbonate housing instead of aluminum.
