The LEDs, integrated circuit boards, capacitors, resistors, terminal blocks, and every variety of connector are mounted onto the main circuit board and soldered. Then, we encapsulate both the front and back of each panel with a top of the line 3M product that locks out moisture and draws the heat away from the main board.
We attach our panels to our powder coated outer cabinet via front-access positive friction locks. Our surround silicone seal eliminates the last vestiges of possibilities for the entry of moisture or weather interference by way of rain, snow, or wind.
Additionally, this method of construction accomodates what we call Hot Swapping: the ability for panels to be changed out while the sign is running for lightning-fast repairs.
