LED banner repeater signal

The LED banner repeater signal from Variable Message Signs is a lineside repeater signal that provides high optical performance and extended reliability from utilising LEDs to create clearly interpreted aspects.

Fully approved by Network Rail / HMRI for use either for new installations or to replace existing low-reliability types such as fibre-optics, it is offered in two versions: a two-state white, and a three-state white/green.

The banner signal weighs only 20kg and measures 110mm thick.

The BRS is a repeater type signal used to provide a train driver advance notification of the state of the next colour light signal. The signal is derived from displaying a black bar on a circular white background. This signal has 2 states; a diagonal bar and a horizontal bar. Where a third aspect is required, this is achieved from a diagonal black bar on a circular green background.

Designed with consideration to RT/E/S10062 (Long Range CLS) and BR1651pt3 (Fibre Optic Banner Signal).
