Main station passenger information displays

DYSTEN’s displays have an open communication protocol and can be easily incorporated into any existing station management system.

Platform and tunnel passenger information systems

Displays for platforms, tunnels and underground passageways provide travellers with detailed information about incoming trains.

DYSTEN offers small, medium or large devices in single-sided or double-sided formats, with an analogue or digital clock and a mounted camera for surveillance purposes.

Devices can be fitted with two-way communication panels equipped with an SOS button, text-to-speech (TTS) button, microphone and speaker.

The SOS button enables immediate communication with a passenger assistance centre, while the TTS technology helps visually impaired people to use public transportation. The announcement system operates within a data network together with the display units.

The outdoor platform display is able to withstand an array of environments, including adverse weather conditions, extreme temperatures, dust and vandalism.
