A Good Investment:
Availability of APC Spare Parts
Unlike the other APC suppliers, UTA utilizes standard off-the-shelf industrial process control optical sensors from a number of major suppliers. The competitive nature of the industrial optical process control component marketplace continues to result in technical improvements and reductions in cost. The wide application of these sensors in manufacturing applications throughout the world assures a continual supply of spare parts for UTA’s APC Passenger Counting subsystem.
Over the years, the APC marketplace has observed numerous APC suppliers from outside the U.S. attempt to obtain a share of the North American APC marketplace and then exit the marketplace resulting in a few transit agencies that have invested in an Automatic Passenger Counting Systems without the ability to obtain any spare parts or technical support.
