The continuous, full-matrix design allows for the display of messages using graphic symbols, text or both. Graphics are displayed at a typical 50-inch height while text messages are displayed using either 28" or 20" tall characters.
LED Lamp Matrix
Advanced LED technology is incorporated in this message board. The LEDs are directed under special optics, which enhances the light from each pixel and makes the message legible from far away - up to 1,400 feet away.
The Full-Matrix Message Center has long-lasting service, it’s powered by deep-cycle batteries. The batteries are re-energized by a solar panel big enough to provide maximum charge capability. Only 2-1/2 hours of good sunshine are needed for a full day of operation, and 30 days of operation without sunlight are possible with this unit.
