Hanover has the most extensive range of different sign sizes of any passenger information sign supplier in the public transport market. Hanover’s customer-focused approach means that we can quickly develop and supply new sign sizes to suit specific customer requirements. Hanover’s in-house production and quality assurance is unrivalled in the market and we offer longer warranty terms than all other suppliers as standard for all our LED signs.
Hanover signs are robust, easy to install, use and maintain. All signs benefit from excellent legibility in all conditions. All signs are fitted with automatic brightness adjustment which optimises visibility and reduces power consumption. The sign system is programmed using Hanover’s proprietary, Windows based software (HELEN) which is simple to use and allows messages to be displayed in multiple languages and a wide variety of fonts and customisable options.
The sign system is driven by a dedicated controller which also serves as the driver interface. Hanover manufactures monochrome, curved, colour route number and full colour signs to cover all customer options.
These signs are typically used in top specification vehicles or on prestigious routes. The wide choice of colours available for background, route number and destination text allows the bus operator to make a strong impact and differentiate between routes.
Fully compatible with all other Hanover equipment, a full colour front sign can be installed on a vehicle fitted with monochrome side and rear signs if required.
The full colour sign is programmed with the same version of HELEN software as monochrome signs and is driven by one of Hanover’s standard controllers.
An increasing number of operators are opting for signs incorporating a colour panel to display the route number. The colour panel can be fitted to the left or right of the sign and is a useful feature providing visual correspondence with printed route maps thereby further assisting passengers. The destination part of the sign can be optional Amber or White. The choice of colour is selected within the HELEN programming software. Up to four different colours can be displayed simultaneously to differentiate background from characters (line number). Outline contours can be added to characters to further improve contrast.
Introducing our new and exciting range of high resolution LED signs. Utilising the latest LED technology, the family-owned company has developed the capacity to reduce pixel spacing down to 2mm. The result is up to 30 times the total number of LEDs used in a typical sign system and, by extension, hugely improved clarity.
With the significantly increased number of LEDs on the new signs, the text displayed appears as continuous screen printing, rather than as a dot matrix. The integrity of the chosen font is maintained and, even in poor weather conditions such as heavy rain, the legibility of the sign remains excellent.
Offering an independent means of controlling our world-class destination displays, Hanover destination display controllers play an important role in either standalone or integrated destination display systems. Acting as either primary driver interface in manual standalone applications or providing an important secondary interface in integrated systems solutions to enable the interface of third party equipment to our sign controllers e.g. connection of an existing ticket machine so that the driver only has to set a route code on a single device.
