Rhode Island company SES America is elated to announce SolarSign, a solar powered Dynamic Messaging Signs (DMS), as ITS Heartland New Product of the Year for 2014 at the recent National Rural Intelligent Transportation System conference in Branson, Missouri, US, on 25 August 2014.
SolarSign is a comprehensively integrated solar powered Dynamic Message Sign system with full range capabilities for large scale DMS signs on major highways, as well as travel time, warning and awareness signs used in solutions-oriented transportation applications, both rural and urban.
The SolarSign system utilises state-of-the-art LED’s leading to notably reduced maintenance costs, and with 30-50% greater energy efficiency than traditional LED’s, eliminates the need for expensive cooling systems. With the SolarSign system clients will experience a return on their investment not only paying for the integrated solar power system in a few short years but most importantly, establish payback on the sign and maintenance given no electrical power cost for the life of the sign.
A SolarSign system may include a power and temperature monitoring option allowing remotely viewable feedback in real time from a portable device or at a regional traffic management centre. The application of a SolarSign monitoring system eliminates operational uncertainties regarding the power supply, 24/7, and is fully functional in remote environments or urban areas. Motorist awareness needs and traffic patterns will dictate placement rather than access to power.
