PowerUp Traffic Systems reduce traffic congestion and increase public safety by ensuring traffic lights and railroad crossing gates continue to work, even though the power does not.

Other systems turn the traffic lights to a flashing red (which can cause chaos, as we all know!). Not PowerUp’s system! From Haughton to Heflin and Greenwood to Gloster, our natural gas generators can illuminate the red, yellow AND green!

And it all happens in less than 20 seconds!

Transfer Switches are the Brains of Traffic Systems

The PowerUp Automatic Transfer Switch does just that – it transfers loads between the utility and the PowerUp Traffic System. And all of this occurs with zero involvement from the site staff!

The Automatic Transfer Switch monitors the utility power. Should the power fail, the switch activates the PowerUp Traffic System and transfers the load. Once the switch senses the utility power has been restored, the generator shuts off.

Signal operation or operation of the railroad crossing gate is automatically returned to the normal utility power source. The transfer switch then closes the connection to the PowerUp Traffic System and resets itself, where it stands ready for the next outage.

Thanks to the transfer switch, electricity is prevented from traveling in opposite directions at the same time or from traveling in the wrong direction, such as from the generator to the utility power source.

As another safety feature, the PowerUp Traffic System’s Automatic Transfer Switch has a unique LOAD/NO LOAD test feature that allows maintenance crews to test the unit without a utility outage. This allows the natural gas-powered generator system to be ready when it’s needed!

Traffic Systems Generator Remote Monitoring System

By using a computer, tablet or smartphone, up to the minute data can be accessed 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – from anywhere in the world!

Here are just a few of the features included with this system:

  • 24-hour technical support
  • Daily data archives
  • Engine start/stop reporting
  • Run time reporting
  • Schedule run verification
  • Maintenance reminders
  • Monitor engine parameters
  • Monitor power quality-voltage and Hertz

One of the MOST important features is asset location via GPS. Should the PowerUp Traffic System be moved or stolen, the Remote Monitoring System will send alerts including the generator’s final resting place.

Other alerts the Generator Remote Monitoring System will send:

  • Low oil shutdown
  • Engine failure to start
  • Low frequency
  • Engine over-speed
  • Low voltage

Battery vs Natural Gas

When weighing the options between battery backup systems and our natural gas-powered system, one huge factor comes into play… TIME!

Battery backup systems can only operate intersections for approximately 2-4 hours before, you guessed it, the batteries have to be charged or changed! Let’s not forget batteries are extremely temperature sensitive items.

So, when the temperatures climb, their wattage capability drops. On the other hand, the PowerUp Traffic System can run for several hours, several days or several weeks!

Also, when a battery system is placed at an intersection that does not have LED lighting, the battery system will not be able to support the amount of power that intersection requires.

What items receive power becomes a necessity-based decision, which will, unfortunately, knock out other important equipment, such as surveillance cameras. Adequate power is not an issue with a PowerUp Traffic System!

Benefits of PowerUp Traffic Systems

  • Traffic keeps moving! A PowerUp Traffic System eliminates gridlock, congestion and overall confusion during power outages.
  • Law Enforcement officers are not forced to direct traffic! This keeps members of Shreveport/Bossier City Police Departments and Caddo Parish/Bossier Parish Sheriff Departments safe and also saves taxpayer dollars. The officers are then able to focus on more urgent matters in our community.
  • PowerUp Traffic Systems are the most reliable during any and all weather conditions! Our customers can feel confident that, in the event of a sudden catastrophic weather event, our system will fully function as expected.
  • Customers are quickly alerted to any changes in the traffic system! Our system checks for start, stop, trouble codes and unit tampering of the unit EVERY 5 SECONDS.
  • Unit blends in with existing equipment! This minimizes the risk of vandalism or theft.
  • Unit is more cost efficient over an extended period of time when compared to battery powered solutions! No personnel required. No battery changes needed.
  • Remote monitoring system ensures the generator is ready when needed. Our remote monitoring system provides a critical link to staying on top of system functions and required maintenance.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Great people, great products, and you’re sure to receive great service!
Mr. Clem,
I had two generators installed in November at my home and business outside Doyline. Sitting here right now with electricity while my neighbors are out due to the storms this morning. What a relief! Thank you so much!
Ms. Briggs,
Installed 4 years now and service has been excellent! As the tropical storm hit our area in August 2020, our unit did not come on early that morning. I called PowerUp and the technician arrived within the next hour. He even had to move a limb in my drive. With the rain and wind hitting him, he efficiently replaced the battery! We highly recommend PowerUp Systems!
Ms. Junkin,
Mr. Randy Smith is a very nice sweet helpful person. Him and his crew helped me out in more ways then just the generator. He was honest and trueful. Generator was delivered days before scheduled.
Ms. Green,

In 2008 we purchased our PowerUp Generator system. We purchased the system recommended. It’s about to be protecting us during Hurricane #3! We also recommend their annual service package. Maintenance is an important part of reliability of the system.

Last evening (with Hurricane Laura heading our way) our doorbell rang. Surprised to see our PowerUp maintenance guys at the door. They came to check out the system because of the impending storm. Glad they did our battery was needing replacement and a spark plug was Fouled. We would have not known until it was needed. This is what you can rely on when your a PowerUp customer! Thank you PowerUp , so glad we are a part of your company’s family.

This is an unsolicited testimony from a much satisfied customer.

Ms. Vidler,
Superb company for all your home generator needs. Maintenance, service, new installs, and repairs. These folks truly care about their clients.
Mrs. Willard,
