A portion of the units delivered from Telent are typical Infotec platform displays. Most of them, however, are P1199 displays an innovative design created especially for Northern Rail to provide CIS at smaller and remote stations.
The P1199 display is a small, efficient two-line LED display, perfect for small railway stations and bus shelters. The installation provides cost savings and better hardware integration.
The display has been constructed with a standard set of light-weight brackets to enable it to be mounted in different configurations and settings. These brackets, and the display itself, reduce the need for costly on-site installations.
The display can be configured with GPRS communications and integrated antenna, which is ideal for remote locations where only power is accessible.
Northern Rail stations to be fitted with the displays are Batley, Denby Dale, Featherstone, Headingley, Morley Shepley and Slaithwaite, among others.
On the new displays, Natalie Loughborough, Customer Service Director for Northern Rail, said:
We listen carefully to our customers feedback and we know they value real-time travel information.
The new CIS will keep people up-to-date with information about arrival and departure times as well as station calling points along the route.
On the Northern Rail work, Infotec Managing Director Tim Court said:
We are often presented with the need to develop products to provide passenger information display solutions and are always happy to do so.
Having our own team of software and hardware engineers and full test capabilities all in-house enables us to do this. We are delighted the P1199 has provided what Northern Rail wanted for its customers and we are confident it will be useful to other clients in the future.
The P1199-GT units are generally available now from Infotec.
