VMS-trailer solar – VW 1350 HB

The growing demand for traffic information in urban areas has challenged EBO van Weel in designing a VMS-trailer that is climate-neutral, compact and simple handling and control.  The VW 1350 HB is our solution. It is a spin-off of the VW 1700 S VMS-trailer, with its reduced size and increased simplicity as main differences.

Unique LED display: improved readability and saving 87% in energy consumption

The VW 1350 HB is delivered with a 80 x 80 (optionally 80 x 96) pixels full-colour LED display. This LED display is made in collaboration with the Austrian company Swarco Futurit and has been designed with the latest technology and is in accordance with  NEN-EN 12966.

The LED display has got an unique lens technology, which focuses the light and therefore is only readable from determined distances. Furthermore, the LED pixels that are not in use do not consume energy, which results in a maximum power output of 195 Watts. This is an energy reduction of 87% compared to conventional LED displays.

The patented technologies result in a maximum power of 195 Watt, which is a reduction of 87% compared conventional LED An energy reduction is realised by an unique lens technique and turning off LED pixels that are not in use.

The carefully chosen combination of components prolongs the stand-alone time

An energy efficient LED display, the 200 Watts solar panels, the right solar charger and four matching 230 Ah batteries are all part of a carefully chosen combination that helps restrain the energy consumption and therefore prolongs the stand-alone time. Thanks to this configuration the VW 1350 HB is able to be operative with 50% active pixels from April through September without using external energy sources. This makes the VW 1350 HB unique amongst other VMS-trailers.

Simple and smooth

Simple and smooth were the starting points for the design of the VW 1350 HB. With hand operated jacks and hydraulic control of the LED display the VW 1350 HB is made ready for use in an instant. The 80 x 80 pixels LED display of this VMS-trailer can be extended to a height of 3800 mm.

Handy storage compartment to store the portable rumble stripes, cones and spare wheel

Produced in accordance with CE and EC regulations

Our VW 1350 HB is completely produced in accordance with EC regulations and therefore received a EC type approval for the axles and suspension, which makes it possible to apply for a registration number in all European countries. Furthermore, does the VW 1350 HB have a CE marking, which ensures that this VMS-trailer complies with all relevant European legal requirements.

Due to its compact size the VW 1350 HB is highly manoeuvrable and therefore offers a solution in urban areas with limited space, e.g. bicycle- and footpaths, and local and regional roads.

Its single axle and its weight of 1,050 kg makes the VW 1350 HB movable by a single person. The LED display can be fully rotated, which enhances the readability for the motorists.
