Product Features & Benefits

The VMS-RGB-10A uses low profile LED matrices and are each capable of displaying count values of up to 5 digits with the option to display ‘FULL’ when a count value falls below 1. The display options are set via the counting/control module. Display settings include the display colours and the options to replace the count value with ‘OPEN’ or 'SPACE' when the count value is 1 or more.

The sign has 10cm high characters and can be viewed at distances of up to 50 metres with a 30º horizontal viewing angle. The luminance of the signs can also be manually adjusted to match ambient light levels. The high intensity setting is ideal for regions with extremely strong sunlight. The default setting provides automatic luminance adjustment using the built-in ambient light sensor.

Depending upon the application, up to eight signs can be connected on a single RS485 bus, each displaying a different count value.
