What Should I Look for in an Electronic Message Center / Board?

by Stephanie Brault
Posted in LED Sign Buyer's Guide

You are ready to invest in an electronic message center, but now you’re wondering, What qualities should I look for? How do I know if I’m getting a high-quality EMC that’s right for my business? To begin, EMCs come in various shapes and sizes. Your EMC salesperson should be able to recommend the best model(s) for your business site.

When shopping for an EMC, it is important to look for:

  • A high-quality product
  • A company with a track record of reliability
  • A model that includes software that is easy to use and provides lots of options and flexibility
  • A product with a good warranty
  • A company with a reputation for excellent customer support

UL-Certified Electronic Message Centers

Finally, be sure to pick an EMC that is fully UL-certified, an independent certification that you should seek for any electronic product. UL is an abbreviation for “Underwriters Laboratory” and represents the gold standard of certification. Many municipalities will not allow non-UL-certified signs to be installed. Plus, many electricians will not work on non-UL-certified equipment for liability reasons.

Canada is especially strict in its enforcement of "C UL" certification. "C UL" represents the UL certification based on Canada’s rigid requirements.

As long as you follow these guidelines, you’re sure to find a quality LED sign that will do wonders for your business!
