Elektra variable message signs (VMS) from Siemens offer the complete solution for effective information display as part of an integrated UTMC traffic management system.
Providing highly visible and concise information to drivers keeps them better informed, helping reduce traffic congestion and journey times while lowering pollution levels from queuing traffic. Elektra VMS offers a highly configurable, adaptable and flexible solution to meet the requirements of variable message signs in a wide variety of different situations. With easy integration to new and existing UTMC management systems, Elektra provides real time car park and traffic information to drivers.
Elektra VMS uses the latest modern surface mount technology ensuring accurate alignment of display modules along with efficient low power control electronics minimising the power consumption of the sign when installed and in daily use. Signs are available in a range of different enclosure sizes, with display characters from 100mm up to 320mm. For all applications, Elektra offers individual pixel monitoring for maximum reliability.
The all new enclosure design offers easy access for maintenance along with flexible mounting options, including traditional multi pole installation and a range of monopole cantilevered structures. Simple mechanisms with monopole installations allow efficient, easy adjustment for carriageway alignment and optional elevation of the sign, minimising the time required on site and any associated traffic management congestion. Elektra enclosures are sealed to IP55 and include integral work positioning attachments for safe working during installation, commission and ongoing maintenance.
Ongoing maintenance and support of Elektra VMS is streamlined by full commonality of parts with the latest Siemens Gemini UTMC outstations, reducing the range of spares required by engineers. Intelligent character displays allow easy plug and play configuration, minimising the time required on site for maintenance activities. Elektra is fully compatible with the Siemens Outstation Support Server, providing efficient monitoring of faults and upgrading of firmware or sign configurations with minimum effort required on site.
