Lightsign supply Tetra PowerMax, the perfect solution for large lightboxes, cabinets and deep channel built-up letters. The PowerMax offers ultra-bright lighting that enables large line-spacing and reduces the quantity of modules required. The PowerMax combines high brightness and low quantity for fast and efficient installation. The wiring between the LEDs is preassembled (as shown below) so that it can simply be pulled to a suitable length as needed removing the need for extra connections between large line spacings and eliminating cable shadows between modules.


Pre-assembled easy to use wiring


Our PowerMax solution tackles the inefficiencies of alternative LED components. With less modules and flexible spacing options, the PowerMax saves signage manufacturers time and money. With a long-rated life of 50,000 hours, the Tetra PowerMax is the most effective, efficient and reliable choice for large lightboxes and letter illumination.

Partnering with Linnos, Lightsign supply outdoor time, temperature and fuel price displays. These high-quality LED numerical displays feature automatic brightness control ensuring optimal display brightness day or night. During the day, our fuel price signs operate at a higher output so that the LEDs are visible even in direct sunlight. For maximum visibility at night however, the brightness needs to be adjusted to a lower setting to avoid glare and save energy. Our sensors control this automatically to save time and money.


The brightness sensors also control the lighting load eliminating the need for a lighting photocell or timer. Usually the forecourt manager would operate the totem sign lighting manually with multiple switches. A sensor control simplifies the process. Standard photocells usually activate just before nightfall when it is almost fully dark. However, we custom design our sensors specifically for the signage industry so that displays activate at dusk-level brightness – this ensures that your signage is always visible. Our custom-built sensors can simultaneously dim/brighten the fuel price display while simultaneously turning on/off the totem lighting.

Our time, temperature and fuel price display feature automatic lighting control to provide our customers with a hassle-free solution that saves time, energy and money.

First, we need the specification of the sign. Take the dimension below as an example:

  • Letter Height: 600mm
  • Letter Depth: 100mm
  • Font: Avant Garde

The new generation enhances performance and visibility to deliver excellent results.

Tetra 24v Benefits

The improvement in brightness decreases the number of modules required in a sign cabinet or letter by up to 55% and power supplies by 66%. This gives signage manufacturers a huge increase in loading capabilities – saving both labour and material costs. Across the range, module width has been reduced to allow for greater flexibility in both installation and application. With a reduction of channel width, manufacturers have better spacing options.

The new generation also improves efficiency. The range brings in a 38% reduction of energy usage to also pass the benefits onto the end user.
