TFT and LED displays for Derby
New displays at the remodelled Derby station are keeping passengers fully informed and on the move.---
A 79-day project to upgrade the track, signalling and station layout at Derby station is now complete.
One of the first stages of the work involved building a new 320-metre platform which includes two extra wide lifts up to the bridge above.
The pre-cast concrete platform is covered by a steel canopy which has been designed to match those existing on the adjacent platforms. Similarly, the new wide aspect double-sided passenger information displays manufactured by Infotec for the new platform use yellow LED technology, again matching those elsewhere in the station
Two new lifts have been included as the new platform does not have subway access as an alternative to the stairs. At the footbridge level of these lifts, landscape TFT displays by Infotec have been installed, keeping passengers fully informed and on the move.
The new displays at Derby are the latest of hundreds provided to East Midlands Trains by Infotec, with others at stations in busy city locations such as Leicester, Nottingham and Sheffield as well as stations with lower footfall including Belper, Duffield, Ilkeston and Uttoxeter.
The first passenger information displays for the Thameslink Programme in London have been installed, providing customers with comprehensive information in high definition and with the smoothest possible scrolling.
Following the successful completion of an order for LED/TFT combined passenger information displays for Line 12 in Mexico City in 2012, Infotec has now been asked to create more of the purpose-built displays for the metro system.
A recent external audit has seen Infotec re-accredited as an Investors in People employer, with the inspector concluding: “This organisation takes good people management and development seriously".
The very latest 3D CAD software now being used by passenger information displays (PIDs) specialist Infotec is proving to be a great help to installers as well as to clients.
An order for more than 130 TFT passenger information displays to be installed at Virgin Trains West Coast Mainline stations has been won by Infotec.
