Peek ATC-1000 Advanced Traffic Controller

The Peek ATC-1000 is the first of the new ATC line of modularly-built, standards-based controllers from Peek Traffic. Designed for ease-of-use and easy adaptability, the ATC-1000 traffic controller features Peek’s latest ATC engine board, a full line of communications options including multiple serial ports, multiple Ethernet ports as well as a USB firmware and memory port. Also, it uses the NTCIP communications natively.


With interchangeable I/O and power modules, the controller can be mounted in the latest cabinets, but can also be used as a plug-in replacement in older, non-standard cabinets, thus providing an upgrade path for older intersection control hardware.

The Peek ATC-1000 controller is easily programmable on site from the front panel, via USB database download or via IQ Link® direct connection or central system, in the same manner as the fully compatible Peek IQ Central® traffic management software.

The ATC-1000 is a totally new and powerful controller that can be used wherever NEMA, NTCIP and ATC compatibility is required.
