Below you will find products from the Amplicon portfolio that are most frequently used in Intelligent Transportation Systems and Highway Automation.

The Amplicon portfolio of Embedded computers is capable of running ANPR and DVR functions concurrently. These hardened products are regularly installed in roadside cabinets, lamp-posts and other harsh environments to provide roadside computing.


Amplicon manufactures rugged and reliable Rackmount PCs from 1U through to 6U as well as tower computers. These systems are often used to host ANPR, DVR, NVR, SCADA, database and monitoring applications for a wide range of traffic management systems. Complete customisation without MOQ is key to the popularity of this range.


Amplicon can supply an integrated computer and display with the specifications to meet the requirements of your highway automation system.


Amplicon's Industrial Networking products provide a complete solution for networking and connecting different signal types across an Ethernet backbone.  From a simple Ethernet switch with a wide temperature range to a fully fledged layer 3 network for a tunnel monitoring system, our team can help.


These products are used to provide connections to analogue and digital devices across a LAN. Whether it is an analogue measurement of temperature, pressure or position or a digital indicator for door contacts on a roadside cabinet, a PIR in a CCTV system or a simple switch, we can capture data and distribute it across a network in a reliable and cost-effective fashion.

With experience in many areas of road technology, Amplicon are fully aware and equipped to discuss quality, approvals and compliance required in your project.
