Messagemaker Displays | A New Off-Grid VMS Solution From Messagemaker Displays
Messagemaker Displays Ltd. has launched its new Off-Grid Variable Messaging Sign (VMS).
This is a highway compliant, full colour display solution that can be integrated with a variety of off-grid power sources. The VMS display system eliminates the need for cabling and trenching, and once in-situ provides power efficiency without compromising on quality, saving both installation and operational costs.
The Off-Grid VMS Solution utilises Messagemaker Displays’ low consumption VMS display screen and is compatible with technologies such as highway-approved solar panels, fuel cells and wind turbine systems. By utilising renewable energy instead of the main power grid, it can help operators to significantly lower their carbon footprint.
With a lightweight design to reduce initial framework and installation costs, the full colour screen has a display size of 1280 x 2240mm to provide six lines of clearly displayed information for oncoming motorists. It is able to display all TSRGD compliant symbols. At a resolution of 64 x 112 pixels and an average power of 115 to 150W, the low power consumption screen provides real energy efficiency.
Crucially, the Off-Grid VMS Solution is also compatible with all standard protocols to enable integration with Centre for High Accuracy Retroreflection Measurements (CHARM), Urban Traffic Management Control (UMTC) and the National Transportation Communications for Intelligent Transportations System Protocol (NTCIP).
“Our customers are increasingly looking for energy-efficient solutions that can reduce their carbon footprint,” commented Danny Adamson, Managing Director at Stocksigns. “As a system that can utilise renewable energy sources, the Off-Grid VMS Solution provides significant savings to users in terms of both installation and operating costs.”
