MVIS | Portable VMS’ A & C provides the complete Portable VMS solution
Specialists in Portable VMS hire, MVIS is a staple of the UK’s road network.
With a product range developed to meet all challenges and environments nationwide, the company and its VMS units excel in both high-speed and urban environments.
Here, we take an in-depth look at both the MVIS VMS A & C, their key features, and how they make our network a more efficient and safer place.
The MVIS VMS-A is the ideal solution for urban and inner-city environments. One of MVIS’ most popular units for traffic management applications, the unit’s smaller footprint provides a nimble option in limited space environments.
First put to the test in the baptism of fire that was the London 2012 Olympics, the unit has stood the test of time since that challenging inception, which says all you need to know about the success and popularity of the VMS unit itself.
Undeniably built to last, some of the current MVIS fleet were in fact a part of that first roll out, meaning almost 10 years later the units are still going strong.
With over 180 VMS-A units now on the MVIS fleet, it’s extremely safe to say the product has become an incredibly reliable ‘go to’ option for a diverse range of clientele over the last 9 years.
For the high-speed network, MVIS provides the VMS-C, the perfect solution for roads with a speed limit higher than
Efficiency and reliability is the name of the game with the VMS-C, not to mention industry leading innovation and technology.
When travelling the UK’s highways, the VMS-C is a regular sight, and there’s no wonder, with over 228 on the MVIS fleet.
Both units are equipped with some unique, industry leading features. Here we bring you just a taste:
5 Colour Display
LED screens enable a low power, maximum brightness element to both VMS-A and VMS-C displays, ensuring visibility is absolutely paramount whilst simultaneously managing power output.
Available in 5 colours, the display allows for red, green, blue and white as well as the highways standard – amber.
Solar charging system
Specifically designed for the UK environment, both VMS-A and VMS-C are fitted with solar power units – completely
eradicating the need for external power.
This greener, more sustainable feature showcases the MVIS commitment when it comes to going greener in accordance with the company’s ISO 14001 accreditation.
Tilting Solar Panels
Designed to make the most of the available light, which in the UK we are all too aware can be far from plentiful at times, both portable VMS units can be adjusted when it comes to facing the light to become exposed to solar energy.
The solar charging system is optimised on a technical level also for the UK sun by using the most suitable solar
panels and solar regulators.
Each unit is built with one solar charger per solar panel – not per unit – so optimal charging capacity is present at all times.
This advanced nuance means maximum efficiency for the battery life for the units, keeping the low output LED displays on.
This ultimately means a pair of dependable units to keep Britain moving.
Radar Integration & Journey Time Information
The integration of radar allows for both units to display vital messages, speed alerts and responsive information in relation to driver behaviour, using tried and tested traffic control solutions to then positively influence driver behaviour.
The units discreetly house the data collection radar that can collect information on speed, time and date.
This, in addition to journey time information via the NTIS DATEX II Portable Journey Time Variable Message Sign Solution (PJTVMS) means that both VMS A & C units are delivering key real-time messages to our road users.
Combining data collection and VMS in one unit offers a multi-functional solution that can help collect valuable data at the same time as communicating messages.
So, there you have it. Safe, sustainable, innovative and efficient. Packed with precision and industry leading technology, these two portable VMS units leave no stone unturned.
Keep your eyes peeled for the next product focus from MVIS as it continues to keep Britain moving.
