SWARCO TRAFFIC SYSTEMS GmbH is a member of the internationally active SWARCO group, the one-stop shop
for road markings, signage, signalisation, and traffic management – your reliable partner for traffic solutions.

The information motorists probably appreciate most while travelling into crowded areas is availability of parking spaces, and directions to get there. SWARCO has different display technologies for this purpose:

Prism technology: “Free“/“Full“/“Closed“ display (4 messages can be shown if a square instead of a triangular rotating body is used)

LED technology (Light Emitting Diodes): display of available spaces, or “Free“/“Full“/“Closed“

LCD technology (Liquid Crystal Display): display of available spaces, or “Free“/“Full“/“Closed“

VARIABLE MESSAGE SIGNS IN PRISM TECHNOLOGY

Prism technology may be used for “Free“/“Full“/“Closed“ displays. It can also be a supplement to the parking space display. For example “Free Spaces“, “Full“, “Closed“, “Reserved“ or a neutral picture. Prismatic signs only require a substantial amount of energy while a message is changed, making them ideal for solar powered applications. Three or four different messages are possible depending on whether triangular or square rotating bodies are selected.

VARIABLE MESSAGE SIGNS IN LCD TECHNOLOGY

The visually attractive and elegant LCD technology permits display of the current parking situation by using highly legible, reflecting LCD characters. Additional informative text in highly legible proportional font is also particularly easy to implement in this technology. Night time illumination of LCD displays can be realised by back lighting (white LEDs, or fluorescent tubes). Outstanding legibility is therefore always guaranteed.

VARIABLE MESSAGE SIGNS WITH LED TECHNOLOGY

Display of the current parking space situation via green, yellow or red light-emitting diodes in matrix arrays.
A fixed display of the words “Free“/“Full“/“Closed“ is also common (e.g. “Free“ in green, “Full“ and “Closed“ in red). Generally, LED arrangement is either realised as plugged-in bundled LED chains, forming e.g. 3 different fixed words, or as a freely programmable full LED matrix. LED displays, due to their night time dimmable super-bright LEDs are highly visible, durable and require minimum servicing.
