One concern that comes up frequently enough when we're discussing the benefits of LED signs is the matter of maintenance. It's understandable enough. After all, when you're dealing with traditional incandescent or neon signs, you know exactly what you're getting when you buy one. These are well-known technologies.
Some people, however, are reticent to embrace LED signage because the signs are substantially more complex, and they worry about installation and maintenance problems. The truth is, Adaptive digital LED displays are extremely easy to install, program, and service, with special features built into their LED panels to make it safe and simple.
The Construction of an Adaptive LED Display
An LED panel or display isn't a single unit, but a complex piece of electronics that need to be protected well. For this reason, all our LED signs are built using our exclusive Protector sealed cases that keep their delicate insides safe from extremes of heat and cold, as well as all forms of weather. These Protector cases, made from milled aluminum, have a specially designed access door system that allows them to be easily operated on.
Further, many of our larger LED displays aren't a single LED array at all, but a modular series of them, which are linked together. This makes replacing a defective element a snap. It really involves nothing more than unscrewing a couple of captive fasteners, taking out the defective module, and replacing it with a new one.
Installation and Programming
Our Adaptive LED displays come ready to run, with virtually no extra assembly or installation required besides the mechanics of mounting the signs where you want them. Once they're hooked up to power, all they need is a communications source and you're ready to go. Depending on the model sign you purchase, you will have options for using a serial port, Ethernet, WiFi, or a traditional modem to communicate with it.
After that, everything is done with our exclusive software packages, which run on any standard Windows computer. All the programming is done through simple GUI interfaces. Your messages, pictures, and videos can be imported directly from existing resources on your hard drive.
In short, there's no reason to worry about LED panel maintenance. We've done everything we can to make our LED displays as easy-to-use as possible. When you combine that with the long lifespan of our signs – generally at least ten years – you'll find that owning and operating an LED display is no more difficult than any other signage option.
