AEG MIS Software and LCD Passenger Information Systems for Railways
The system and software company, AEG MIS, is known internationally for its competence in the field of information systems, software development and services in specific market segments. These state-of-the-art information systems are based on liquid crystal displays, designed, developed and manufactured in the plant located in Ulm, Germany.
Passenger information systems for railways
As the market leader for the supply of passenger information systems to the German rail system, AEG MIS has already equipped more than 400 railway, tram and underground stations with a software system and platform indicators for the departure and arrival main boards. The display systems are used as passenger-guiding systems, platform, timetable indicators, advance-notices for local public transport or long-distance tourist travel.
AEG MIS references include projects like the complete urban railway net in Munich, Stuttgart and Frankfurt. Worldwide, railway stations are equipped with AEG MIS display systems, including Switzerland, Hungary, Austria, the UK, Ukraine, Belgium and the US.
Energy saving passenger information systems
Information systems from AEG MIS are energy saving and environmentally friendly. AEG MIS has developed a new generation of passenger information systems which need no power to maintain the display of information. The AEG MIS Green System is a standalone solution that uses solar technology and the new passenger information steles for bus stations and tram stops, which have been designed for external use in public transport.
The solar-powered ChLCD steles provide you with the opportunity to display information in places where a traditional power supply is not available. The integrated bi-stable display technology means the stele merely needs power when passenger information is being updated, which is ensured by means of a solar panel. This makes the display systems extremely economical in energy use and therefore an environment-friendly display medium.
The bi-stable ChLCDs reflective operating mode provides an optimal readability of the information displayed on the columns under all lighting conditions, whether in direct sunlight or in twilight, using ambient illumination such as street lights.
High-resolution display board and bi-stable train side boards
Another of the company’s innovations is the new, coloured, high-resolution Geameleon® display board. This information board will be used as an indicator showing the position of individual carriages at stations.
In the mobile sector AEG MIS present the bi-stable train side boards, which can give the traveller the train number and details of the seat reservations.
