LCD TFT platform displays were installed at WKD stops and stations. The rail network of the Warsaw Commuter Railway (WKD) is located at the south-west side of the Warsaw Metropolitan Area. The rail lines link the area of three districts: the capital city of Warsaw, Pruszków and Grodzisk, including two residential quarters of Warsaw and six municipalities.
Along the WKD rail lines, there are:
- 28 stations and passenger stopovers
- Four technical stations, which allow for manoeuvres and changing the direction of the rolling stock ride
The total length of the Warsaw Commuter Rail line is 40km.
101 platform displays for Warsaw Commuter Railways
Warsaw Commuter Railway introduced electronic passenger information display system along all lines served. In total, 45 platforms located at four stations and 24 passenger stops, were equipped with 101 passenger information platform displays LCD TFT.
The boards provide information on the real-time train arrival based on the vehicle location monitoring system.
With sunny weather around 50% of the year, the commuter railway faced a challenge – it required screens, which were not only bright enough to be seen in broad daylight, but also able to resist the weather and operate in a wide temperature range (-40°C to 55°C). DYSTEN has produced and installed high-brightness platform displays using TFT technology.
DYSTEN’s weatherproof high-bright screens make it easy for passengers to view information no matter the lighting.
