To minimize operational issues, we needed to engineer a solution to seal the power and data connection to the LED tiles. Today in LED digital billboard technology, many suppliers have sealed tiles. However, the key to minimizing service issues over time is to have sealed power and data connections.
The Formetco FTX accomplishes this by having one combined data and power cable that connects into a sealed housing with a cover. This protects the data and power connection from the environment. Additionally, the sealed housing provides active pressure to the data/power connection to insure long term contact.
