The electronic variable message signs have become a familiar sight on the motorways and major trunk roads of many countries. They provide road users with information on road conditions ahead, improving safety and helping to reduce congestion.

The MS3 Series consists of three models offering 2 and 3 lines of text, with character heights of 320mm or 400mm. The individual character modules can be configured as discrete characters or continuous matrices and have been built in one, two, three, four and five line configurations. The 400mm character signs incorporate a graphics area capable of displaying symbols and legends.

MS3 signs can be mounted on a variety of structures, including a cantilever post, and can be controlled by GSM, Radio, TCP-IP, Internet and RS485 bus.
