"We had a specific requirement for our station timers and London Electronics were not fazed by this at all.

James visited our site with demo models and explained very clearly what he needed from us in order to get the best product.

We had changing circumstances in our project and LE responded quickly to all. When faced with meeting a much earlier deadline than expected they really pushed on so we could get all the timers we needed.

Overall they are a very professional company, the products they have supplied are top quality and I will be using them in any further projects."

Message displays for popular fieldbus networks such as Profibus, Ethernet I/P, CanOpen, DeviceNet, TCP/IP, RS232, RS485

industrial fieldbus ethernet IP gateway We partner with HMS from Sweden in providing industrial network gateway devices and pre-configured gsd files for most of our display types.

This allows you to easily connect your message display to a Profibus, ProfiNet, Ethernet I/P, TCP/IP, CanOpen or similar fieldbus network.

Distribution Bay message displays

We produce message display systems for use in distribution warehouses. These are often installed at the lorry bays to indicate such information as next destination, trailer number, ETA and so on.

logistics and demurrage message display

We also make message displays for demurrage / vehicle delay calculation and display, with statistical analysis according to each site's particular requirements.

Modularity for Flexibility
Titan message displays are designed and built in England, using a modular system. This allows us to create a unique message display to suit your requirements exactly.

The number of lines of text, text character height, data communication method, power supply, sealing, brightness, mounting method - all are selectable in different combinations.

This allows us to create exactly the right format message display for your application.

Custom message display software

In addition to the wide range of physical possibilities with Titan message displays, you can also tell us exactly what sort of interface you need and we will gladly design a format to suit you precisely.

Our philosophy is one of providing exactly the message display format YOU want

A typical custom-built message display we have just delivered. The coloured rectangles on the right are full colour LED andons which can be illuminated to indicate different conditions on the line.

Titan message display with andon beacons

The message displays are driven from a PLC and can store preset messages, or can act as slaves directly from an RS485 or EtherNet data stream.

The building blocks of a Titan message display...
These are the main parts of our message displays. The top 2 modules are display boards which can be assembled together like non-ovelapping bricks to create a message display panel as large as you need.

Each section is controlled by the message controller module at the bottom.

This can store up to 255 messages, which can be triggered by a binary logic input, or it will accept RS232 or RS485 serial data input, TCP/IP, Ethernet/IP, Profibus, Profinet etc.
