 20                 Signal cable identification information is attached to the door by a method which is water
                    resistant and holds up under ambient temperatures ranging from -30 to +165°F (-34 to
                    +74°C).
  21 A676-3.1       All major street through vehicular signal heads (numbers 2 and 6) flash yellow; all minor street
                    vehicular signal heads (1, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8) flash red.
  22                Pedestrian signal heads are dark (off) during flashing operation.
  23 A676-3.2       Transfer from normal operation to flashing operation occurs at the end of the major street red
                    interval when the flashing operation is selected by either the flash switch in the service panel
                    or by a time-of-day device (time switch, master clock unit, etc.).
  24                Transition from normal operation to flashing operation does not require actuation of vehicle
                    detectors to cycle the controller unit to the appropriate transition phase(s).
  25                Transfer from normal operation to flashing operation is immediate when flashing operation is
                    selected by either the flash switch in the police panel or the conflict voltage monitor's output
                    relay is in the de-energized state.
  26                Transfer from flashing operation to normal operation causes the controller unit to revert to its
                    start-up sequence unless the conflict voltage monitors output relay is in the de-energized
                    state, in which case the transfer to normal operation is inhibited until the conflict monitor is
                    reset.
  27                Circular green, green arrow, or flashing yellow indications are not terminated and followed by
                    a steady red or flashing red indication without the display of a steady yellow clearance interval
                    except when flash operation is selected by either the police panel switch or the conflict
                    voltage monitor.
  28                Transition from a circular green or green arrow indication to a flashing yellow indication may
                    be made without a yellow clearance interval.
  29 A676-3.3       Police switches (as described in the next section) are provided with type 3, 4, and 5 controller
                    cabinets; these switches are mounted on the police panel and identified as to their function.

 The following compliance matrix criteria are for Police Switches
  30               AUTO-FLASH: When this switch is in the FLASH position all signal indications immediately
                   transfer to the flashing mode; AC power is removed from the load switches and stop timing is
                   applied to the controller unit. When this switch is placed in the AUTO position the controller
                   unit operates in accordance with the appropriate specification.
  31               MANUAL ON-OFF: When this switch is in the on position, a logic ground is applied to the
                   manual control enable input of the controller unit.
  32               MANUAL JACK: A manual jack is installed on the police panel. The jack intermates with a
                   three-circuit, 1/4 inch diameter phone plug. The tip and ring (middle) circuits of the jack are
                   connected to the logic ground and the interval advance inputs of controller unit. When the
                   manual hand cord is plugged into the jack and the pushbutton is pressed, logic ground is
                   connected to the interval advance input of the controller unit.
  33               A manual pushbutton with cord is provided with Type 3, 4, and 5 cabinets. The cord has a
                   minimum length of 3 feet (0.9 m) and a 1/4 inch diameter, three-circuit plug connected to one
                   end and a manual pushbutton enclosed in a hand-held enclosure at the other end. A complete
                   cycle (push-release) of the manual pushbutton terminates the controller unit interval, which is
                   active except the vehicular yellow and all red clearance intervals; cycling the push-button
                   during the vehicular yellow or all red clearance intervals does not terminate the timing of those
                   intervals.
 The following compliance matrix criteria are for Service Switches
  34 A676-3.4      Service switches are provided with Type 3, 4, and 5 cabinets; switches are mounted on the
                   service panel and identified as to their functions.
  35               SIGNALS ON-OFF: When this switch is in the off position, AC power is removed from all
                   signal heads.

                    of the cabinet’s main breaker and the generator input twist-lock connector rating; the transfer
                    switch provides a means of switching between normal utility power and auxiliary backup
                    generator power, the switching time between sources is no longer than 250 milliseconds.

 105                The transfer switch is permanently mounted inside the cabinet and meets UL Standard 1008.

 106                Transfer switch does not allow simultaneous active power from two sources and does not
                    allow generator backflow into normal utility AC circuits; manual transfer switch is a two-
                    position switch; the switch positions are labeled “Generator Power” and “Utility Power.”

 107               Transfer switch equipped with a “Utility-on” indicator, which illuminates when normal utility
                   power service is available and the switch is in the “Generator Power” position; the indicator
                   turns off when the transfer switch is moved to the “Utility Power” position.
 108               The utility-on indicator is clearly visible outside the cabinet, in bright sunlight, and the
                   indicator’s on/off state can be visually determined from a distance of 30 feet.
 The following compliance matrix criteria are for cabinets with an automatic transfer switch
 109               Automatic transfer switch has indicators that display the status of connected power sources
                   and indicate which power source is actively energizing the cabinet.
 110               If a relay circuit is used to provide switching, the normally closed circuits are connected to
                   normal utility power; the relay is energized only by the generator, not by the electric utility
                   service.
 111               When energized, the relay breaks the connection to normal utility power and makes
                   connection to the generator power input.
 112               Automatic transfer switch or relay operated switch includes a bypass switch that permits the
                   automatic switching function to be disabled and permits manual selection of the power
                   sources connected to the cabinet.
 The following compliance matrix criteria are for all cabinets
 113               A generator connection panel is included and consists of the manual transfer switch, or an
                   automatic transfer switch where required, and a three-prong, minimum 30-amp twist-lock
                   connector for generator hookup.
 114               The transfer switch and twist-lock connector are located on a panel easily accessible behind a
                   lockable exterior door; the access door is labeled as “Generator Access Door,” equipped with
                   a tamper-resistant hinge, and the door assembly is weatherproof and dustproof.

 115                The access door is provided with a #2 lock.
 116                The access door is provided with a weatherproof opening for the generator cable.
 117                The generator hookup compartment itself is recessed into the cabinet and is deep enough to
                    allow closing and locking of the access door when the generator cable is connected; the
                    generator hookup compartment and access panel’s intrusion into the cabinet interior is not
                    more than six inches and does not block access to any other equipment in the cabinet.

 118               The generator access panel is located as close as possible to the main AC circuit breaker; the
                   bottom of the access panel is no less than 24 inches above the bottom of the cabinet and is
                   not located on the main cabinet door or back door.
 119               Wiring from the cabinet AC+ Input Terminal is connected to the transfer switch; the alternate
                   power source’s wiring on the transfer switch is connected to a receptacle that can accept a
                   120 VAC generator cord; a power service wire is installed between the transfer switch and the
                   existing power distribution panel in the cabinet.
 The following compliance matrix criteria is for cabinets with an automatic transfer switch
 120               Automatic transfer switch does not transfer as soon as utility power is restored; a delay is
                   used to make sure the utility power is stable before transferring.
