LDC Equipment offers the most user friendly and best value for money VMS in Australia with our new Star Series signs.

Variable message Sign Boards 

Our amber and five colour VMS signs are designed and manufactured in Australia for traffic control, events and promotional purposes. The amber signs (VMS1C) are fully integrated with superior control functions and charging systems, enabling these to be operated remotely. Compared to other VMS boards, our innovative design consists of point-to-point wiring extending from the core to each component. This superior design avoids the potential risk of faults through complex wiring. We call it the “star pattern” and it reduces the chance of breakdowns due to the board having less failure points.

Simple and easy to operate, the amber VMS can be programmed using a smart phone, laptop or desktop PC. You can easily manage single or multiple signs using our advanced Cloud Director Software by remote access. Unlike other services, there are no ongoing charges and it can be easily set up through your own server.

We offer a range of new features including the plug-and-play LED display boards, a flat deck trailer with a combined battery box for increased stability and an improved, stronger aluminium case with no fans to maintain.
