A new polarization control mode called a Spin Transparency (ST) mode is currently being actively developed for new rings. The ST mode is an intrinsic feature of figure-8 rings such as the JLEIC at Jefferson Lab. A racetrack collider can be converted to the ST mode by inserting two identical Siberian snakes into its opposite straights as at NICA, JINR. The ST mode allows one to develop a completely new approach to the measurement of the EDMs of both protons and deuterons. The idea of the method is to use the significant enhancement of the EDM signal by the interaction of the EDM with arc magnets, which has an interference effect. A unique feature of this technique is the conceptual capability of measuring the EDM signal in the whole energy range of a ring without introducing additional electric fields using only its magnetic fields. We describe an experimental setup and provide estimates of the limiting EDM values that can be measured at the JLEIC and NICA colliders.
