AWVMS -  “Advanced warning variable message sign” the latest requirement for all new NZTA contracts awarded after the 1st July 2010.

It is envisaged that the new AWVMS will replace the tail pilot vehicle resulting in one less truck mounted attenuator being required. The AWVMS is to be a stationary sign and can only be carried on either a small utility vehicle or small trailer and shall be located on the road shoulder and out of live lanes.

The AWVMS, as defined by NZTA is actually made from four separate components.  These are Xenon warning lights, Advanced Warning VMS, VMS Sign (made up of a graphics area and text area) and the base panel.  All components are available separately or can be obtained as a complete unit.

Some of the features of the RTL AWVMS system include; full matrix LED display, automatic & manual LED dimming and an optional bluetooth or hard wired controller.  The AWVMS is housed in a robust, powder coated, aluminum frame and can be trailer or ute mounted.

The large memory has the capacity to store up to 1500 pre-programmed messages and symbols. The PC based software is used for creating and managing messages and symbols which are then loaded onto the AWVMS memory.

If you have any questions about the AWVMS or the specification call us on 0800 785 744. Also, our AWVMS is on our website here or the brochure here.
