Siemens is continuously introducing new innovations while steadily improving existing solutions. As a result, Siemens ITS has a broad product portfolio, which can be tailor-made for individual customer needs.
The Siemens m60 series ATC complies with the industry’s latest Advanced Traffic Controller (ATC) standard 5.2b. Built on the proven m50 hardware architecture, combined with powerful industry-leading SEPAC software, the Linux-based m60 series ATC provides a host of functions to meet the needs of traffic agencies of all sizes.
The Siemens m60 series provides a vast array of benefits compared to other similar products in the industry. At the heart of the m60 series is the Siemens Multiview Display (SMD) concept. The SMD provides the user with multiple timesavingmechanisms to operate and program traffic controllers. For ease of operation, the 16 line display is split into an activeprogramming view at the top and a dynamically updated active status view – or the context-sensitive HELP – at the bottom.This dual view enables users to dynamically visualize the impact of their programming changes on the overall efficiency of the intersection. In addition, the ability to program customized function buttons to a specific menu item ensures quick navigation, making the operation of an m60 series fast and efficient. Having built upon the proven Siemens m50 hardware platform, the m60 series offers a range of possibilities to address financial and technological constraints faced by traffic agencies.

SEPAC is unparalleled traffic signal priority software that enables mobility, safety and a better environment in order to improve the quality of life in cities. The software is designed for Siemens “M” series and CalTrans 2070 style controllers, as well as for ATC (Linux based) controllers. Incorporating more than 25 years of actual “on-street” traffic control experience, SEPAC is user-friendly and accommodates a large variety of traffic control requirements through its diverse configuration capabilities.
User-friendly, 16 line menu driven software
Each parameter viewable with a menu and the cursor movable to that parameter for changes
Easy verification with related parameters visible simultaneously
On-screen programming area identification and editing prompts
Standard traffic nomenclature used throughout the programming
Keystrokes identical on any hardware platform
Logically laid out programming for easy setup and startup
The system features a SSM (Signal System Master) with the ability to select system timing plans responsively based on surveillance of actual traffic conditions, Time Based events, manual, and/or remote commands
Primary system objectives are:
Flexibility of traffic responsive and / or time base (timeof-day/day-of-week/month day-of-year) system control
System diagnosis from a single site
System monitoring and reporting at a single site
System timing modification from a single site
Multi-level back-up operation
Minimize reliance on and cost of communications
Staged implementation capability
Future potential for multi-level central operation
