Congratulations on choosing a custom-made LED sign by LED Sign City! Our premium LED signs feature state-of-the-art construction for indoor or outdoor applications, and we have put a tremendous amount of thought and care into the design and execution of your sign.
Your LED Sign City sign includes cabinets, software, and other components necessary for installing, connecting, programming, and operating the sign. If any items are missing, lost, or damaged, contact us immediately.
Your sign comes with the following components and accessories*:
* Your sign may also come with spare parts, such as extra modules and power cables.
Your LED sign comes with a control box, which includes the control card that stores the sign’s content and program schedules. The control box has additional connections for the optional CPE/Wi‑Fi antenna and Brightness & Temperature probe.
The Brightness & Temperature probe detects ambient light, and the sign’s screen adjusts automatically. For example, the screen will be brighter during the day than at night.
The signal and power connectors are to be inserted in the ports on the back of the cabinets
Connecting the accessories for the control card.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 for connecting the remaining accessories to the control card.
The sign comes with several cables labeled with tags to assist installation. Your sign can either be connected directly to the computer through a cable or wirelessly through an antenna.
If your sign did not come with the optional CPE/Wi-Fi antenna for wireless connectivity, use the signal cable provided to connect the control box directly to the ethernet port on your computer
You can connect your sign to your computer using an RJ45 ethernet cable. The default network IP address for the sign is 192.168.1.128, and it can be changed to match your network settings.
You can choose between Wi-Fi or cellular for a wireless connection. The Wi-Fi option is similar to LAN, and because there are no wires, you can change the program from up to 500 feet from the sign. The cellular option enables you to monitor and update your program over the internet from your web browser.
For wireless connectivity to your sign:
The required electrical service is listed on the nameplate on the sign or the sales order sheet. The current rating on the nameplate applies to the cabinet only. LED signs typically require 120V or 240V single-phase electrical service, with two wires, (one hot leg and one neutral) plus a ground.
Connect incoming power to the bottom of the terminal block assembly, to the left of the breaker.
This sign is intended to be installed according to the requirements of Articles 250 and 600 of the National Electrical Code and/or other applicable local codes and ordinances, including proper grounding and bonding.
If service must run several hundred feet, increase wire size one gauge for every 200 feet. The maximum load is 920 Watts/m2.
Proper grounding helps protect equipment from electrical disturbances, such as lightning strikes or unintentional contact with high-voltage lines.
