Peerless-AV extreme-weather displays deployed in Austria

A ski resort near Innsbruck, Austria has received an all-weather digital upgrade in the form of Xtreme Outdoor Displays from UK-based Peerless-AV. Patscherkofelbahn Betriebs GmbH has equipped its newly opened mountain cable

car line with the fully sealed, weatherproof and extreme temperature tolerant displays.

The displays are positioned at the station’s ticket counters to offer up-to-date passenger information and news of current events in the area. Innsbruck-based Kapsch BusinessCom AG was responsible for the installation.

The Patscherkofelbahn cable car leads from the village of Igls up onto the Patscherkofel mountain, a popular hiking and mountain biking destination, and local ski resort in the Tux Alps. Throughout summer and winter months, the cable car ensures that more than 2,000 people per hour are transported to the summit. During the opening of the new mountain cable car in December 2017, Patscherkofelbahn updated its station passenger information system with the weatherproof digital technology.

“The main requirements for the new information system were that it needed to work reliably and as maintenance free as possible, even under extreme conditions in rain, snow and freezing temperatures,” said Kamran Kiafar, account manager for mountain railways and industry at Kapsch BusinessCom AG. “In addition, the outdoor displays had to match the corporate design of the cable car stations.”

Three 49in Xtreme Outdoor Displays from Peerless AV have been installed in the cable car stations. The fully-sealed displays are impact resistant, offer optimum readability in direct sunlight and have the widest operating temperature range in the industry (from -40˚C to +60˚C). The company’s Ventless Dynamic Thermal Transfer system makes Xtreme the industry’s first outdoor display without ventilation openings, filters or exhaust fans. It complies with protection class IP68 and NEMA 6, making it dust-proof, waterproof and resistant to dirt, ice or insects.

Due to the positive experience with Xtreme at Patscherkofelbahn, the displays have also been installed at the cable car stations in the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis region in Tyrol with plans to equip further locations in the near future.
