The light-reflecting dots provide excellent visibility over a wide range of ambient light conditions. Visibility increases with an increase in the ambient light level. The dots do not demand any additional illumination during the daytime, and only small external illumination at night - e.i. vehicle reflectors (traffic sign principle).
Plug & Play solution
Because of the character of the flip-dots display, it’s possible to have a sustainable solution on the exterior without any external source of power or expensive cabling. There is no need for any additional approvals, and installation reminds installation of the traffic sign, in this case, a dynamic one.
Minimal power consumption
Power is only required to change the data displayed. Inherent magnetic memory in each segment retains the display indefinitely without applied power. Multiple displays can be operated on a few watts of total power.
There are no bulbs to burn out and no mechanical linkages to wear out. The dots are the only moving parts and are resistant to withstand over 150 million operations on average (30 years, in case of status change every 10 sec.).
Operation in extreme conditions
The displays can operate in a temperature range from -40°C to +75°C and relative humidity up to 95% (without condensation). Outdoor applications require a weatherproof enclosure.
Shock and vibration resistance
The flip-dots display elements are highly resistant to shock and vibration and are particularly suited to mobile applications with wide temperature extremes.
