Precision Solar Controls' SMC 1000 ST Solar Message Center is a MUTCD-compliant variable message sign that displays text messages on a 70-in. by 127-in. panel. An on-board dedicated NTCIP-compliant controller provides programming with secure password protection. The message center uses five, high-intensity, solid-state LEDs per pixel to create uniform light input for increased message definition and distance legibility of 1,000 feet. Powered by a battery bank and a solar panel array designed to recover one day's power in 2.5 hours, the unit is designed for 21 days of continuous operation without sunlight. The SMC 1000 ST comes with 250 pre-programmed text messages and 100 user-programmed messages.
