A Wide Messenger 6000
As part of its multi-year contract with the City of Calgary in Canada, SES America recently delivered a massive 27.5 ft long Messenger 6000. This full matrix DMS installed on the Deerfoot Trail replaces an older obsolete DMS. It was successfully integrated with the city's NTCIP traffic managment software and is capable of displaying large font and graphics. SES America provided assistance and training during the sign installation and a continuous customer support since then.
This large DMS is equipped with 9 front access doors to guarantee ease of access and maintenance to all components. All components are rated to operate in very harsh environments and extreme temperatures. SESA also provided the controller cabinet with the latest version of the NTCIP SCU6 controller . Like most of SESA's projects, remote testing was conducted prior to delivery. SESA also provided remote access to the sign for the City to test and display messages while under testing at its facility in Warwick, Rhode Island. This integration was coordinated by SES America's customer service team.
