 SES America recently deployed a 36" LED 'Turning Vehicles Yield To Pedestrian' symbol sign for the City of Portland, ME.  

This robust, easily observable sign is equipped with a light sensor to seamlessly adjust to morning light conditions and a polycarbonate face for a higher level of protection.  Additionally, it is  maximized with complete 30 degree viewing angle, made possible by the calculation of a SESA microprocessor that offers the appropriate lighting for increased visibility.

With the use of high performance LED’s, SESA Blank Out Signs allow for energy efficiency, increased reliability, visibility, and legibility of all messages being displayed. Their robust NEMA rated housing allows presence in any location or weather conditioning. In addition, their simple turnkey solutions will allow easy access and maintenance to operation personnel.

Changes over the years in LED efficiency has eliminated the printed computer board with SESA's LED string technology. The City of Portland can now replace LED’s singularly, reducing maintenance costs to cents rather than hundreds of dollars. In addition, the advanced brightness ability in this new design allows for less LED's, driving down costs and providing a greater value-to-reliability ratio.
