DYSTEN designs, manufactures and installs Passenger Information Displays System (PIDS) for railways.
The company’s wide range of solutions provides passengers with clear, readable information about real-time departures, arrivals, delays and route changes.
DYSTEN manufacturers dynamic passenger information systems and displays according to the smart mobility/smart city concept, integrates various technologies
- LCD TFT
to give the client the tailored solution for a specific location and special needs (such as low power consumption, extended durability, limited budget etc).
DYSTEN solutions have been appreciated with international awards:
- Best Railway & Smart City Information Displays Manufacturer in Europe 2019,
- Smart City Poland Award 2019
- Global Light Rail Awards – Best Passenger Innovation 2018,
- Global Light Rail Awards – Technical Innovation of the Year 2018
Main station passenger information displays
Station displays provide passengers about necessary travel information, such as arrival / departure times, platform numbers, destinations, intermediate stations, possible delays, and train types and numbers.
As a manufacturer, the company’s solutions comply with railway standards and specific customer requirements, even in the most demanding environments.
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.
Information displays for stations
DYSTEN offers a wide variety of passenger information displays to be mounted in passenger traffic areas throughout stations. Suitable for details such as train journey origins and destinations, arrival and departure times, and service data, the system also broadcast films and animations, including commercials.
LCD and TFT technologies are used in the freestanding, wall or ceiling-mounted displays, and the matrix brightness and protection level depend on the location. The company’s solutions are available in a variety of sizes and layouts.
DYSTEN’s Infokiosk system enables the display of various passenger information on a single screen.
Public Address System for rail infrastructure
Metro and rail networks need sound installations that are able to distribute all kinds of passenger information to crowds of people.
Public Address (PA) Systems use a combination of microphones and loudspeakers to make announcements in places such as railway stations, train platforms, station halls, communication routes, tunnels, and footbridges. Therefore, the delivery of sound through different and independent channels is a necessary requirement in installations involving many spaces with different dimensions and acoustic requirements.
Railway PA systems
Rail operators provide general guidelines for the specification of PA systems, often including precise requirements concerning equipment such as amplifiers or loudspeakers. Dysten operates in accordance with such guidelines, customising the system to the requirements of each operator.
DYSTEN’s range of passenger information displays is based on cooperation with public transport designers, architects and engineers, as well as 20 years of experience gained during multiple proportional-integral-derivative (PIDS) realisations in Europe.
The company constantly develops and improves its devices to enhance the quality of public transportation and support traffic engineering.
Advantages offered by the company’s range of solutions include:
- Displays work for up to eight hours on a single charge
- Real-time monitoring of platforms, tunnel or stations using a mounted mini-camera
- Emergency assistance via an SOS panel mounted in a device pillar
- Quick removal of information on the displays, due to an integrated train detection sensor
- Facilities for the visually impaired through a TTS system
- Digital visual interface (DVI) connections enable flexible display of graphics and videos
DYSTEN is ISO 9001: 2009 certified for the design, manufacture and service of installation of audiovisual systems.
