Battery Backup Systems (BBS) Traffic Cabinets


The Eagle Battery Backup Systems (BBS) Cabinets are designed to protect batteries and inverters that can keep your intersection running in the event of a power outage.  Our cabinets feature an aluminum enclosure for protection from all forms of outdoor natural elements, including rain, sleet, and snow, as well as seepage and splash. The BBS cabinets include a unique front-sloped cabinet top to direct rain away from the main traffic cabinet when using side-of-cabinet (piggyback) mounting.  Eagle BBS cabinets can be used with a variety of third-party BBS systems.
