In long term, the cost can be offset by the saved money due to less energy consumption.

For the street pole LED display screens, one of the outstanding advantages is the electricity-saving ability.

This feature can both profit environment and owners – after all, the saved money can offset your costs.

(2) More power suppliers and fans

The smaller structure can lead to high inner temperature, thus more power suppliers and fans are needed.

It also put forward strict requirements for utility and components causing a more serious working environment.

(3) Requirement for software security

It is important for smart street pole LED displays to have high-standard software security as there may be risks of hacker attacks so unwanted contents will spread.

(4) More elegant appearance

The street pole LED screens will have a higher ability to integrate with surrounding environments, which can add more aesthetic feeling to the environment.

Thus, it often has an innovative and more elegant appearance than other types of screens.

5. Prices: Is Smart Pole LED Display expensive?

The factor we considered most important besides quality is, is that expensive? Our answer is “ ABSOLUTLY NOT”.
Pole LED Display is generally ranged in a reasonable and affordable price for most of us. Take our common outdoor use fixed installation LED display for a comparison example, 3 items are the most different places, which might caused price rising.
See as the table showing:
Cabinet Design
  • Fixed Insta: Use the widely used Common mode, lower cost, Homogenized products
  • Smart Pole: Cabinet will be designed according to specific project needs, that might need extra cost, around 200-300USD/ Cabinet
Control System
  • Fixed Insta: These LED Display do not need extra accessories like 4G or lora module to realize the same time image show effect, so only the receiver cards + sending card combination is enough for it’s basic showing requests.
  • Smart Pole: Different as the requests, these display need the accessories support to fulfil their function, like different sensor, 4G module, wifi control mode, lora synchronization module, but those accessories are cheap for their unit price, range from dozens of dollars only.
Energy Saving Requests
  • Fixed Insta: Without special energy saving requests, common fixed installation cabinet is not designed into energy saving model, that will be cost saving.
  • Smart Pole: If need energy saving type, some accessories need to use the specified energy saving type, like IC/ power supply/ or maybe the PCB board. That might add 50-100 USD.

(5) What equipment should the street pole LED display screen should have?

Here we give you two equipment that you may ignore:  light dependent resistors and temperature-controlled fans.

The reason for installing them are simple: safery, and saving you more electricity charges. 

Because almost all street light pole LED displays are installed on the highway, thus the ambient brightness and temperature are changeable. 

To achieve timely and accurate brightness and temperature adjustment, there should be automatic management. For example, when the ambient brightness become higher, the screen brightness should be correspondingly higher, too.

This is when a light dependent resistor can work for you: the resistence will reduce when the ambinent brightness get higher, leading to higher screen brightness.

Here is a typical question for users: how can street pole LED display stand over heat? As we know, the ambient temperature can be up to 40 degree in summer, and the inner temperature can even be 80 degree! Thus, many customers will worry about whether the displays have significant heat dissipation. 

(7) We will give you answers below: 

a. Reasonable inner design: the arrangment for sending card, receiving card, power supply, fans and so forth.

b. Shorter inner trace to improve the thermal convection.

c. Adding more fans to improve ventilation so as to strenghthen heat dissipation.

d. Better quality components such as sending card, fans and cables, which can resist higher temperature than standard ones.

e. Bigger capacitance for sending card as it is the core component for the display. Typically, it must meet industrial grade of 1G memory.

f. More power supplies should be installed as the conversion efficiency will reduce with the rising of temperature, so there should be more power units.
