Electronic Message Centers

Impact LED offers four different Electronic Message Center (EMC) resolutions. All four resolutions, also known as pixel pitches, are based on identically sized, 12” x 12” modules. This common building block allows flexibility as a customer needs or budget changes over time. The EMCs resolution can be increased by simply changing a few parts, the entire sign does not need to be replaced.

Each 12” square module is easily removed from the front by engaging the locking mechanism through discreet holes in the face of the module.

Edge To Edge Display

Starting at 1′ tall x 3′ long we can build the right sign for your project. Our zero trim cabinet design allows for maximum usage of space where every inch of the sign structure is an active viewing area. Edge to edge, vibrant beauty.

Weather Proof

Our aluminum cabinets meet NEMA IP65 protection standards and are built to excel in even the harshest of environments. A thermostat controlled air exchange system ensures that all
internal components receive the necessary ventilation for long lasting performance.


To be effective, electronic message centers must produce enough light to compete with the sun.

It is generally accepted that to compete with the sun in the middle of the day, an EMC needs to display content at 5,000 nits or above.

All sources of light dim over time and electronic message centers are no exception. Therefore, displays that are brighter from the start compete with the sun for longer.

Impact’s EMCs use sensors to change the brightness of the display to avoid blinding passers-by. The brightness can also be manually changed easily in our software.

Front Access

Cam-lock front service modules have become an industry favorite allowing easy removal and access to the inside of the sign. Our modules feature a weather seal gasket as well as a louvered mask protecting the diodes and shielding them from the sun.
