KapschBusinessCom AG has equipped the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis mountain railway in Tirol, Austria, with fully-sealed outdoor displays from Peerless-AV.
The weatherproof and temperature-resistant Xtreme Outdoor Displays update passengers with information about the cable car and ski lift operation, as well as current events, weather conditions and special offers from local businesses. Additional Xtreme displays inside the waiting area are used to depict the history of the cable car and local villages.
“For the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis mountain railway project, it was crucial that the outdoor displays provided the utmost protection against the outdoor elements for reliable 24/7 operation, even in snowy conditions and minus temperatures,” explained Kamran Kiafar, account manager Mountain Railways and Industry of KapschBusinessCom. “They also needed to be easy to install and as maintenance free as possible, with direct sunlight readability.”
Following successful pilot projects in various Austrian and German ski regions, systems integrator KapschBusinessCom chose to install nine 49in Xtreme Outdoor Displays (CL-49PLC68-OB-EUK).
Peerless-AV’s Xtreme Outdoor Displays are claimed to have the widest operating temperature range in the industry, and features such as impact-resistant safety glass improve longevity, while optical bonding increases the contrast ratio and reduces glare, even in direct sunlight. The fully-sealed design eliminates the need for vents, filters or exhaust fans and a Ventless Dynamic Thermal Transfer ventilation system keeps internal components safely warmed in extreme cold and properly cooled in extreme heat.
With IP68 and NEMA 6 ratings, the displays are dust-proof, waterproof and resistant to dirt, ice or insects. In addition, they offer a contemporary design with clean aesthetics to modernise the look of any establishment, in any indoor or outdoor location.
