On-vehicle displays for Vancouver Metro


Infotec's considerable expertise and experience is proving useful in the on-vehicle display sector, as a second order for the Vancouver Metro proves

On-vehicle displays for Vancouver Metro

Following the successful introduction of on-vehicle passenger information displays designed and manufactured by Infotec on the Vancouver Metro last year, a second order is seeing scores more delivered.

Three types of LED displays have been engineered to fulfil the orders from Trak Com Wireless Inc. for the Canadian light railway system - P1503 and P1504 full matrix LEDs and P1506 LED route maps.

The P1503 on-vehicle LED display is mounted on the outside of the trams for external viewing. The LED unit includes an appropriate DC power unit and control processor running standard TDP direct control protocol. The unit provides Ethernet or RS485 connections as standard.

The P1504 on-vehicle LED display is a smaller unit, designed for use internally. As with the P1503, it includes an appropriate DC power unit and control processor running standard TDP interface.

The P1506 on-vehicle LED display is designed specifically for use internally as a simple ‘Route Map’ indicator. The display uses a printed graphical representation of the network and red and green LEDs to show where the vehicle is at any given time. The user can define which colour represents stations visited and which represent stations to follow.

The P1503, P1504 and P1506 can each be adapted to meet specific design requirements and each has been type-tested to meet EN50155:2007.

Infotec’s intimate knowledge of the technology required to guarantee that communications and displays work reliably in a variety of challenging conditions have ensured the Leicestershire-based company is well-equipped to design and manufacture on-vehicle displays.

Managing Director Tim Court says: “Our experience of providing bespoke technical solutions to meet our customers’ needs gives us a head start in the on-vehicle sector. Infotec’s ability to integrate with and understand the needs of suppliers and software integrators is what makes us the right choice for on-vehicle PID solutions.

“The on-vehicle displays have met the specifications for shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, humidity and vandalism and are the ideal choice when it comes to meeting the challenges of this specialist market.”
