LED traffic variable message signs
In some cases, it is required to inform road users about certain circumstances on the road in real time. To solve such problems, LED traffic signs were designed.
This type of signs allows displaying full-color images and copying standard road signs, and, if necessary, deliver situational information, including such as advertising.
It is advisable to use illuminated road signs on:
- Highways: for partial blocking of lanes, temporary speed limits, reorganization of traffic, duplication of traffic signals, warnings (for example, about adverse weather conditions);
- Bridges: to inform about the categories of vehicles, available speed, height and weight restrictions, weather conditions;
- Tunnels: for various warnings, information about emergency areas, height restrictions, repairs;
- Toll roads: to notify about the cost and conditions of travel, general warnings and delivery of special information;
- Sections of road with poor visibility, where a regular road sign may not be enough.
To regulate traffic in the situations listed above, it definitely makes sense to buy LED road signs. But in this case, not the price should be the decisive factors in the choice, but the manufacture of the sign in accordance with the standards.
A quality sign acceptable for installation and use must have the following characteristics:
- Anti-corrosion protection and anti-reflective coating;
- Proper resistance to horizontal loads;
- Allowed deflection level;
- High degree of protection against electromagnetic waves;
- Shock and vibration resistance;
- Lightness and durability of the whole structure.
The transfer of information for displaying the mark occurs remotely, using special software installed on the computer. The connection with the sign is made via a fiber optic cable, modem or LAN communication channel.
An LED traffic sign must be extremely reliable, with an automatic shutdown and self-diagnosis function. The life and health of road users depends on how correctly it regulates, say, a pedestrian crossing. Therefore, choosing and buying the right sign is not easy.
