Digital and Illuminated Route Signs: Contrasting Characteristics


Even though digital and illuminated route signs can cross over, they aren’t necessarily the same thing. Digital Traffic Signs are traffic signs that are typically lighted with LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes) and may have a small section that shows a digital number or series of numbers and letters, such as you might see at some airports, or a digital traffic sign could be an electronic reader board with messages for oncoming motorists.
Illuminated traffic signs, on the other hand, may include digital traffic signs, but may simply be a sign that is lighted from below with directional lamps, giving it the appearance of being illuminated. These illuminated traffic signs typically have a sensor that flips the switch on the lights as it gets dark and then reverses the process on the illuminated traffic signs as daylight arrives in the morning.
If you happen to see an illuminated sign, there are lights affixed that shine onto the reflective sign surface, making the signs into illuminated traffic signs that are highly visible at night, which is a good thing, especially if you’re new to an area or passing through.
Digital traffic signs are a bit more different just in the sense that they employ light emitting diodes to lighten their signs up. They’re exactly like a “message center” type of sign that is programmed remotely with a new message as needed… typically something like “Road Construction starting and Never Ending…” or the like.
They are usually programmed from a booth and will say something like “Open” or “Close” or similar. Obviously these digital traffic signs are more expensive than your standard aluminum panel road sign, especially the message center style of signage.
The standards for reflective road signs are set nationally by the US Department of Transportation (USDOT), or by local states conforming to the USDOT’s Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). This manual gives all the regulations for various aluminum traffic signs, but doesn’t offer regulations regarding both digital traffic signs and illuminated traffic signs. However, any street signage used on an interstate or state highway will still need to be approved by the state DOT or USDOT.
There are many road sign manufacturers in the US, but only a few that manufacture the big message center LED digital traffic signs. A few more make the panel-type LED digital traffic signs. Due to the complexity of the digital traffic signs/message center signs, however, many companies can sell them as distributors.
One other type of internally illuminated traffic sign is used almost exclusively at airports or public transportation facilities. These are a standard ballast-driven, fluorescent bulb, internally illuminated traffic signs with a decorated polycarbonate face, one or double-faced.
Obviously, these internally illuminated traffic signs need to have a power source, so it’s not practical under many circumstances to use this type of sign in rural areas, plus these internally illuminated traffic signs are considerably pricier than standard aluminum traffic signs. They are also custom illuminated traffic signs and are not covered in the MUTCD, but are typically regulated by local authorities. There are many companies that manufacture these types of internally illuminated traffic signs, but all of them still need to be approved by the proper certifying authority.

Factory Information Points Now Using Digital Signs

Previously in production facilities we have seen the old notice board when you enter the waiting area and even on the factory floor, these have been used to update employees and customers alike about the company.

Now it seems that technology is creating a buzz and the notice board is being replaced by digital signage, many organisations who have a manufacturing facility are deciding to replace the old notice board and put up LCD screens, these are then networked on the same data infrastructure that the computers run off. The digital media is added by the marketing department and it can quickly be changed, for example if a visiting dignitary sends someone because they are sick, within 30 seconds the greeting on the reception sign is changed to the new name and it shows the corporation is on the ball.

This is fine in public areas, however when a customer visits and you wish to show them round your facility, this is an ideal opportunity in enforcing your service brand immediately on your customer, as soon as they see the massive displays in the manufacturing areas they will certainly be impressed, it also shows that the business invests in new technology and is ahead of the game.

But there is one problem even commercial screens are not designed to be used in areas were damaging air borne contaminants are, most factories have some form of corrosive element in the air, from acids to dust particles if these get into the rear of the display it is only a matter of time until the screen fails.

The solution – is to put the screen in a ruggedized LCD case, these provide IP65 protection, so they can even be washed down with high pressure water jets, perfect for any food manufacturing company. These can either be cooled or heated to provide the perfect environment. The LCD enclosure are fitted with a sophisticated cooling system that also incorporates a filtration element, that filters all tiny air borne particles out, so the air entering the unit is fresh, cool air. Then the screen inside the protective case can be mounted to gantries or ceiling mounting using a heavy duty fixings.

Dave owns the worlds leading manufacturer of ruggedized lcd enclosure, having supplied dairies and food processing companies in America, he speaks from experience and with authority. Their LCD monitor enclosure range is one of the most successfully deployed solutions throughout the world.

LED Message Signs and Their Applications

Message LED signs are relatively small LED screens are used to display a single line of text. In general, these signs are dynamic and are used to create a line of scrolling text. This text is usually monochromatic and of course luminescent. An almost unlimited amount of text can be entered in these devices, which can then be used to scroll, pause or blink at specific points. It is possible for users to define their Message LED signs to display some messages at times, and change throughout the day.

These screens inform passengers about the final destination of the train stops coming, and distances between stops. The message LED on trains are also used to inform passengers of safety practices and the services available on the train. Authority and local intercity buses also use LED panels message this way.

Many restaurant windows and storefronts will also make use of LED signaling message. Restaurants and cafes often use this dynamic signage to attract the attention of passersby and inform them of the various deals and offers. Various businesses also use this form of advertising signage on the site.
