Rotapanel expands range with LED option

Daily News
Day 2

The big news at Rotapanel is not a rotating panel, it is its new variable message LED matrix sign. According to Hendry Born, product engineer with Rotapanel, authorities are increasingly specifying a combination of signs and want a one-stop supplier.

However, he said the rotating signs’ benefits remain – most notably easily recognisable signage for drivers, ‘stand-alone’ ability with battery power and solar recharging and low whole life costs.

“In many instances authorities only need to direct vehicles one way or another - for instance when a tunnel is closed or an event is taking place. These changes are infrequent, so most of the time the rotating sign uses no energy while the LED sign consumes power all of the time and usage increases when the sun is shining as the intensity has to be turned to maximum.”

Communications coverage is another differentiator as the rotating sign only has three positions whereas individual messages may need to be sent to the VMS when the required message in not in the library.

“We now have all the options we can sit down with authorities and ensure they get the best solution – regardless of the technology mix,” he said.
