New designs for a new station
New F-series displays and support steelwork for Ilkeston.
Guests and customers were informed by passenger information displays designed and manufactured by Infotec that the first train to arrive at Ilkeston in more than 50 years was on its ways when the new station opened in April.
The £10m station, built by Network Rail in a project led by Derbyshire County Council, stands off Millership Way and Coronation Road on the site of original Ilkeston Junction and Cossall Station which closed on 2 January 1967.
It means the town is no longer the largest in Britain on a passenger railway line without a station. It is also among the growing number of stations whose users benefit from Infotec’s latest full matrix displays.
Two single-sided FM40L and two double-sided FM42W-D LED displays have been installed at the station to keep passengers fully informed. These advanced displays offer wider viewing angles, improved contrast ratios and the ability to show enhanced graphical notices in full-screen format.
Steelwork to support the displays has also been designed and manufactured by Infotec for the order which was placed by Railway Electrical Services Ltd.
Trains calling at the station are being operated by East Midlands Trains – which also manages the station – and Northern Rail.
Passengers can catch direct hourly trains running north to Chesterfield, Sheffield and Leeds and south to Nottingham. Some trains will also go to Liverpool and Norwich.
Around 160,000 people are expected to use the station in its first year.
Clapham, Didcot, Gatwick and Hadley Wood are among other stations to now have new F-series displays by Infotec installed.
What many of those using Infotec's passenger CIS displays do not realise is that Infotec is one of the very few UK display companies that designs, manufactures, tests and distributes its own products. Significant investment has been made into making this possible and successful....
Stations including Grimsby, Huddersfield, Hull, Manchester Airport and Middlesbrough are all getting new white LED displays.
Infotec's in-house capabilities, including 3D CAD for steelwork, have been used to fulfill an order for GWR stations
