Self Diagnostic, 100 Percent SMT LED Destination Sign System
Luminator, An LTG Company
Continuing with its goal of providing the best product to the industry, Luminator has improved the Horizon Sign System. Today the system is designed using highly reliable and easy-to-read surface-mount LEDs. The Horizon SMT System maintains all the advantages of the previous design with improved, brighter readability when viewed at an angle. The new design allows for a low-profile side sign mount, improving head clearance. The overall system weight savings is 20 percent. Additionally, the availability of white LED as an option has been added to the product line.
A more important improvement has been the additional functionality that has been added to the sign system. Luminator has added system monitoring to the design, providing the ability to report system incidents via our ODK4 System Controller. System messages can be shown on the ODK4 that will advise the operator of maintenance issues which can be communicated to the bus operations for immediate attention. Maintenance personnel can view system notifications or retrieve error log files via the USB connection or optionally through a wireless transfer. The self-monitoring system reports information on system communication issues. Additionally the self monitoring system reports sign level communication, photo sensor or display board issues to the ODK4.
