The LED sign is single sided, displays (8) 4.7” characters on one line or (16) 2.35” characters on two lines, has 16 x 80 dpi resolution, and is operational on either a POCSAG or FLEX paging system. The WL1680T sign can be used in a wide variety of messaging and informational situations such as emergency mass alerting, information displays, and dispatch center message monitoring. Programming hardware and software is included.
LED Config software allows you to choose how you would like to display your message in a number of different formats. Depending upon a one or two line display, there are up to 25 different font selections available for character size and shading. 13 color combinations allow the user to select individual colors like red, green, yellow, amber, or orange as well as a message with a mixed color scheme. To add movement to the displayed message, 28 style options like roll left, roll right, roll in, sparkle, starburst, snow, and spray are available for selection. Message alignment can be left, right, or middle, speed options include fastest, faster, normal, slow, or slower, and the message can be paused from 0 to 9 seconds before displaying again.
With the integrated paging module, signs can be remotely controlled anywhere within the coverage area of the paging network and a large number of signs can be sent the same message simultaneously. A paging system is not specifically required for sign operation as any display message can be programmed directly into the LED sign locally if desired.
Uploading messages to the LED sign directly through a computer interface requires the LED Config software, available for download from the Documents and Downloads page and the Prog SW tab. Also available for download is the LED Config User Guide for setup and operational information.
Downloadable PDT3P software adds the capability of uploading messages to the sign through a paging interface. Configure the PDT3P (Paging Data Terminal 3000 Programming) software using the Paging Guide download. A description of the PDT3P software is available from the PDT3P Guide download.
