VMS-trailer solar – VW 1700 S

A VMS-trailer is used to optimise the traffic flow on the roads, to reduce the chance of traffic jams and increase the travel comfort of motorists. Research by Rijkswaterstaat has shown that timely traffic information for motorists decreases the number of traffic jams. Our VW 1700 S is used for road calamities and during roadworks, but also for events.

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

The VW 1700 S is delivered with a 112 x 80 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 1700 S is able to be operative with 50% active pixels from April through September without using external energy sources. This makes the VW 1700 S unique amongst other VMS-trailers.
