Eco-Vision Solar Display Systems

Eco-Vision Mechanics

Eco-Vision has been designed to provide an eco-friendly and long term cost effective solution. Where information displays need 24-hour visibility but where routing mains power is undesirable, impractical or highly expensive.

The noticeboard is fabricated from our Lynester range, our premium noticeboard, with the inclusion of solar powered, LED illumination. Integrated LEDs provide top or back-lit illumination, using the intelligent on-demand lighting system. Illumination is triggered by low levels of ambient light or movement detection within a 3 metre arc. The illumination remains on for 3 minutes after the last movement is detected within the arc.

Eco-Vision operates on a safe, low voltage power supply using highly efficient LEDs to illuminate the entire display area. With LEDs guaranteed for 50,000 hours and integrated PV solar panels for 25 years, Eco-Vision solar powered illuminated displays are virtually maintenance free. Eco-Vision’s solar panel draws in UV energy during standard daylight conditions, delivering it to the internal battery units for storage.

Once dusk arrives the illumination is triggered upon detection of a person within a 3m radius. As a renewable energy solution, Eco-Vision products support the environment helping to fight the battle on climate change. The eco-friendly nature of this system adds to brand credibility and climate change ethos. Integrating a sound module into your Eco-Vision solar powered display means you instantly make it accessible for the visually impaired.

Positioning it at the correct height will facilitate access to wheelchair users as well. Sound modules allow reinforcement of key information through pre-recorded speech, music and jingles. Other benefits include being able to present your information in multiple languages, provide spoken directions for finding the next area or attraction and communicate a greater quantity of information than can usually be displayed.

Each sound module is custom built, to suit its location, with the choice of single or multiple button units, and the option of multiple tracks per button. A revolution for remote or highly urban locations, Eco-Vision is available in 7 standard sizes for wall or post mounting. Comes with a 5 year guarantee as standard.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the Eco-Vision solar panel need to be in direct sunlight?

No. The solar panel will charge up in standard daylight conditions including cloudy days. However, there is a difference in efficiency; south facing is the most efficient and north facing is the least efficient. Eco-Vision has been tested over several years to ensure that it works in the full scope of UK weather conditions.

Has Eco-Vision been tested outside the UK?

Yes, its been installed in New Zealand and Australia with great satisfaction.

Will the Eco-Vision solar panel charge up when in shade?

Yes. The solar panel will still charge up in shaded positions but will be less efficient. It is therefore recommended that Eco-Vision displays are installed in positions that have the least amount of shade.

Will there always be sufficient power to illuminate my display?

Providing it is installed in a non-shady area and in normal foot fall conditions, i.e. the illumination is not constantly active, the on-demand system will ensure that there is always sufficient power to illuminate during dusk and at night.

Can I have a bespoke Eco-Vision display?

Yes. Eco-Vision technology has the ability to be incorporated into bespoke housings to create unique solar powered displays.

Can I have constant low-level or full illumination during dusk and at night?

This depends on the specification of your Eco-Vision display and the location/position you wish to install it in. With detailed information on your location we can advise on whether or not this is possible.

Can Eco-Vision displays incorporate a digital screen?

The system does not currently support this functionality. It does however have the ability to store and playback pre-recorded audio. Contact us to find out more about integrating audio.

Stencil Cut Vinyl

Light can penetrate through the letters and some logo symbols. Created using opaque vinyl, light is blocked by solid colour vinyl. The vinyl graphic is attached to the diffuser, behind the glass door, benefiting from the added weather protection the glass provides. Cost effective option. Ideal for high contrast lettering and background colours. Perfect choice where solid text on opaque backgrounds is desired.

Digital Print

A full opaque graphic which shows the text and the surrounding space with light penetrating through. The vinyl graphic is attached to the diffuser, behind the glass door, benefiting from the added weather protection the glass provides.
