A previously successful delivery together with the Dutch track builder, inspired Surtronic to later design a new and improved information system: the V.I.S. (Verrijdbaar Informatie Systeem). A mobile column, holding a single- or double sided LED-display. The swivel mechanism in the column enables the screen to be adjusted to any required viewing height. Thanks to a built-in battery, the V.I.S. is able to operate up to 48 hours without a 230V AC-connection. Surtronic supplied 68 of these displays to the NS (the main Dutch railway company). The order includes 16 single sided and 25 double sided 8-line screens with ‘ultra bright yellow’ coloured LED’s. the command of the displays runs through a GSM connection. Winning the 2nd price in the election of the ‘Van Stappen Spoorprijs (award) 2008? in turn is reason to explore the possibilities with rail-pocket command of the V.I.S.
