Variable Message Signs International Pty Ltd
VMSI commenced operation in 1993 trading as the
distributor of Precision Solar message boards and quickly became recognised
as the best in the world and leaders in this field. VMSI is constantly
striving for new and innovative ways to further develop the traffic
management industry offering our equipment to countries world wide.
All equipment is
manufactured in-house in Victoria, Australia which enables us to have full
control over quality development.
Prior to 1993 the technology of Flip Dot changeable message signs was a
mechanical device that required a lot of maintenance and service. VMSI
developed 400 mm high character variable message boards and became the first
in the world to develop this sort of technology for use in inner city areas.
This type of board has now become a standard specification in many countries
and is used in locations where speeds of up to 100 kph are driven.
VMSI products include:
Variable message boards
and Portable Traffic Lights
Variable Message Signs International - Ahead of the Rest!
Variable Message Signs manufactured by VMSI can be used for
Roadwork Advice, Traffic Diversion, Accident Management, Directional
Information, Safety Messages, Radar detection Speed Warning Messages
VARIABLE MESSAGE BOARDS
The main reason for the design of the 400 mm character boards for
variable message board was to enable the signs to be placed in areas of
close proximity to tracks which the larger type boards were not capable of
doing. Variable Message Boards, also known as electronic signs, LED message
boards and trailer mounted message boards are now being used for road
traffic direction and other applications, such as advertising, event
VMSI was the first company in the world to provide a two
colour outdoor message board, enabling one colour to be switched manually,
alternatively by sending an SMS message.
The sign controller has many options built in which can be added at any
time, such as, SMS message service, alarm system, GPS, compass showing
direction, voice synthesiser module for operation with mobile/cell phones
etc. A second set of messages can also be quickly changed from one to the
other. Other benefits are real time traffic control, storage of up to 250
factory programmed messages and capability for a further 250 user programmed
Our VMS boards also have radio controlled message change, example trucks
entering a road can activate the message and the sign can change the wording
"Merge left/right Truck Entering Highway".
VMSI is unique in its design of solar operation and can operate
365 days per year without the need to externally recharge batteries.
VMSI TechRoad was the first manufacturer to develop the solar powered
Arrow Board and produced these units in Australia and New Zealand. The
company has improved its visibility and capabilities since then, offering
the brightest and clearest trailer mounted arrow board which was achieved
by patented Fresnel lens.
PORTABLE TRAFFIC LIGHTS
VMSI was the first in the world to produce Solar powered
Portable Traffic Lights and developed them
commercially. To this day our
PTL's are far superior compared to any newly developed lights, this is due
to the fact from a distance that our PTL's are higher and can be seen over
the top of 4WD's and vans. They also run 365 days per year non stop under
all sorts of conditions and operate with either radio or cable connection.
Two lights can be towed by one vehicle and can be configured for dual road
or machinery crossing, T-Intersection or pedestrian lights.
Another feature of our PTL's is that an SMS can be sent to one or a
number of mobile phones should a failure occur to the system, example:
loss of connection. This is extremely important when the system is running
24/7. GPS and an alarm system are other features available.
Speed trailers as well as displaying the speed which a vehicle is
travelling, it has the facility to log how many vehicles pass the speed
sign, recording the speed and date/time enabling this information to be
downloaded to a PC either directly or via a mobile telephone network.
VMSI manufactures TechRoad products in Diggers Rest, Victoria Australia
RADAR ACTIVATED MESSAGE CONTROL
OPTIONAL ON TRAILER MOUNTING SYSTEM
The optional radar speed detection feature installed on a trailer allows for
the display of the speed of an approaching vehicle within a range of 100 to
200 meters, and traveling in excess of the trigger speed. The trigger speed
is operator programmable from the control console in increments of one km/hr.
Aiming: The radar device is attached to the trailer mounting system at
the top left hand side of the sign cabinet (when facing the front of the
control cabinet). It will be aimed when you aim the sign at the oncoming
traffic which is to be speed clocked as well as visually able to read the
Operation: The radar activated message control is operator programmable
through the sign keyboard controller. The radar messages to be displayed
must be inserted in the 6 position "Radar Message Sequence". The operator
may use either the factory preprogrammed messages, or those created by the
operator. Any keyboard message(s) may also include the feature of displaying
on the sign face the actual measured speed of the oncoming vehicle.
Our Variable Message Signs can be used for:
* Roadwork Advice
* Traffic Diversion
* Accident Management
* Directional Information
* Safety Messages
* Speeding Messages (with our radar detection option) &
