New passenger information for Cologne Main Station
Cologne Main Station equipped with modern passenger information
During a replacement installation, the first new type of ZugInfoMonitor (ZIM) in 150” format was installed in the main station of Köln. The optical passenger information is now displayed at 5 ZIM 150 LED devices mounted side-by-side. This sums up for a total display area of 26,25m².
Each of these devices consists of waterproof RGB-LED panels with 3,9mm pixel pitch. The components for power distribution and display electronics resides in external racks.
By extending the monitor capabilities every single fault of an LED module is recognized. The replacement can be serviced from the front side. Later a changeover to the IRIS+ backend is planned, which will give more possibilities in the design of the layouts.
BLIC supports the DB Station & Service GmbH within the project "Passenger information of the future" in the conceptual design, tendering and procurement as well as in the implementation and acceptance phases. Supplier for the devices installed at the main station in Köln is the company Global Display Solutions SpA.
