Alstom selected Teleste to supply information displays for Montreal REM stations, consisting of 284 ETL certified indoor and outdoor TFT LCD displays.
Under the contract, the displays will be delivered to Alstom until 2022.
The TFT LCD display technologies offer a solid platform for sharing information from various data sources and displaying it at stations, platforms and entrances. The clear and sharp display has an excellent visibility, and features such as automatic brightness control and low reflection make them highly suited for both indoors and outdoors.
Special technical requirements for the delivery of information in the REM system are set by the city’s weather conditions with heavy snow and freeze during wintertime. Teleste has ensured that its displays withstand demanding outdoor environments. They are protected against snow, dust and rain, and they offer reliable year-round operation even in very low temperatures.
“As today’s passengers expect to navigate through the city-wide public transport networks smoothly and safely, the relevant travel information needs to be available and clearly displayed at every step of their journey. In addition to excellent travel experience, seamless delivery of information is needed to manage the strong growth in passenger traffic that we see taking place wordwide today,” Cyrille Bordes, Sales Director for Teleste said.
In 2018, Groupe des Partenaires pour la Mobilité des Montréalais (PMM), the Alstom-led consortium with SNC-Lavalin, signed a EUR 1.8 billion contract to deliver the complete automatic and driverless light metro system in Montreal, including the rolling stock, signalling system and operation and maintenance services.
