1.The first chapter outdoor LED display screen introduction

Outdoor LED screen is generally composed of sheet metal box or aluminum profile box using building block splicing outdoor led display system,

strong current control system, weak current control system, structural frame system, ventilation system and steel structure frame decoration six parts.

According to customer needs, sometimes also need to include civil construction, steel column, concrete column, wall hanging steel structure installation engineering system.

1.1 Display cabinet

It is the main part of the outdoor LED display, which is composed of outdoor LED display module, sheet metal box, LED receiving card and switching power supply.

1.2 Weak current control system

The system is mainly composed of LED video processor and LED sending card and LED receiving card. The main function of the control system is data acquisition, logic operation, buffering, to produce a variety of scanning signals and gray control signals. The system is equivalent to the brain and nerves of the human body, controlling the display information and signals of the display screen. The control systems are made by brands such as Novastar and Linsn Control Systems.

1.3 Strong current control system

The system is the power source of led display, because the supply voltage of the outdoor LED module is low voltage 5V, the switching power supply of the led outdoor display will convert 380V\220V AC to control the input voltage of the display box.

1.4 Type 6 network cables are shielded for data transmission. Optical fiber cables can be used for long distances.

Display data and various control signals are transmitted to the screen through twisted pair or optical fiber cable.

1.5 Computer and its peripherals

The main function of this part is to produce video and sound, referred to as video source.

1.6 Box connection piece

Responsible for the box connection fixed on the outer frame to form the entire display body, in the installation of outdoor LED display box pay attention to the strength and flatness of the steel structure.

2. Outdoor LED display installation idea matters

For outdoor LED display, because it is used outdoors. So it is inevitable to be treated differently from ordinary indoor LED display. Outdoor LED screen installation requirements are also different from ordinary indoor LED. In the installation must be done in the details. Otherwise it could lead to trouble. Outdoor LED screen installation six ideas:

1.Installation of outdoor LED screen building objects should be installed lightning rod.

The main body and shell of the display are well grounded, and the grounding resistance is less than 3 ohms, so that the large current caused by lightning can be released in time; Outdoor LED signs may be subject to strong electric and magnetic interference caused by lightning.

2.Waterproof measures of the LED video wall itself

The screen body and the joint part of the screen body and the building must be strictly waterproof and leakproof; Screen body should have good drainage measures, once the water can be discharged smoothly; Pay attention to waterproof, moisture-proof. Outdoor LED screen installed in the outdoors, often sun and rain, wind blowing dust cover, poor working environment. The switching power supply and circuit board are wet or seriously damp will cause short circuit or even fire, causing failure or even fire, resulting in losses;

3.Circuit piece selection

Choose an industrial-grade circuit chip with a working temperature between -40 ° C and 80 ° C to prevent the winter temperature from being too low so that the display can not start and to prevent the temperature from being too high so that the outdoor LED signs crashes.

4.Install ventilation equipment to cool down, if necessary, install air conditioning in the LED outdoor signage frame, so that the internal temperature of the led screen body is between -10 ° C and 40 ° C.

Axial fan is installed behind and above the screen body to discharge heat; Outdoor LED screen itself must produce a certain amount of heat when working, if the ambient temperature is too high and the heat dissipation is poor, the integrated circuit may not work properly, or even be burned, so that the led sign system can not work normally;

The installation precautions of outdoor LED electronic display involve the use and safety of the product in the future, and must be treated strictly and seriously.


3:.Outdoor full color LED display cabinet how to do waterproof treatment?

Outdoor LED sign will be subjected to rain and other environments, especially outdoor LED advertising display for a long time in the outdoor playing environment. So must do a good job of waterproof treatment, then the full color LED signage waterproof box is how to do waterproof? What are the special requirements for the box structure? As the outdoor LED module plus closed box structure is processed to form an outdoor display waterproof box, the waterproof box is assembled into an outdoor full-color display. So LED outdoor signs  box is the basic unit of the led display body.

The advantages of LED cabinet structure are as follows:

One is easy to dispatch, aging, on-site maintenance;

Second, it is easy to package and transport;

Third, it is convenient to install and disassemble on site.

The LED outdoor sign outdoor waterproof box is equipped with a led display module in front of the box, and the display drive circuit board is fixed inside the box. The switching power supply is installed on the back cover of the box. In the back cover of the box is also installed with exhaust fans, stamping window and so on. The internal and external surface of the box is sprayed with plastic treatment, with anti-corrosion, moisture-proof, anti-oxidation, flame retardant and other functions, to provide security for the work of the led display body.

As far as the structure of the outdoor LED screen is concerned, the first module should be an outdoor waterproof module, the back of the second module should be brushed with three anti-paint, third, the box should be a waterproof box, sealing is better.

You can do waterproof test, sprinkling water on the surface of the display test. After a number of tests, the outdoor LED screen waterproof box IP protection level to reach IP65 in order to achieve the true sense of waterproof, in addition to the LED video wall box structural perishable parts roughly screen body part of the metal column, circuit board, terminal, connector; Water vapor sensitive components for the circuit board, electronic components pin. Other component kits, all engineering plastics (polycarbonate), epoxy, rubber, etc., are not sensitive to water vapor.

From the current market demand point of view, more users in the LED full color display waterproof box structure began to have more requirements, began to thin, easy to disassemble the box development, but from a professional point of view, not completely closed, thin and light will certainly be able to play a waterproof effect, just like your computer case, box structure only play a dust-proof, anti-foreign body and other functions, If a large area of water, will certainly cause internal damage, and the space is too small, is not conducive to heat dissipation.

Therefore, the specific protection function of the outdoor full-color LED display depends on the IP level of the factory to decide.

5. Outdoor LED display compared with LCD display

Outdoor LED display to create more and more advertising value, LED display products have attracted attention, widely used in commercial advertising, live broadcast, traffic guidance, stage interpretation and other fields. In view of these problems, the four points for attention of LED display are summarized.

LED display four advantages

In the outdoor advertising market, LED large screen advertising has become an important media for outdoor advertising communication due to its strong suitability with the target consumer group, strong visual impact and expressive force, flexible advertising update, low cost of thousand people, and large coverage rate of the audience.

Compared with LCD brush screen machine, the advantages of outdoor LED display are mainly reflected in the following points:

1.the area ductility, LCD display area is large, it is difficult to achieve seamless splicing, LED screen can be extended arbitrarily, and achieve seamless splicing.

2.LCD screen luminous flux attenuation is fast, generally run for about a year and a half, it needs to be replaced, but LED video wall under the same operating conditions for at least five years no problem,

3. LED screen brushing machine can use interactive technology to enhance the interaction between the screen brushing machine as an advertising medium and the advertising audience, such as customized touch screen, to achieve cloud technology broadcast control management, etc.

4.In terms of display effect, the high brightness, wide viewing Angle and good color restoration ability of the LED display are also superior to the LCD screen. LED screen brush machine is generally used in airports, shopping malls, hotels, high-speed rail, subway, movie theaters, exhibitions, office buildings, etc., the target customer consumption power is strong, with huge advertising value


 6.LED display selection reference

LED production process requirements are very high, and not all enterprises have the corresponding strength, resulting in the quality of LED display on the market is uneven, LED lighting optical system design requirements are very precise, LED tube and condenser cup size are very small, the relative position of the two with high requirements, small deviation, The position of the light to the stage will have a big gap. In order to meet the design requirements, the manufacturer with strict process requirements will screen the consistency of a large number of LED tubes. Taking into account the gap between the thickness of the solder paste of the LED tube on the circuit board, the manufacturer will use an automated laser welding process.

In addition, the heat dissipation problem directly affects the luminous efficiency of LED, the current high quality LED display from the design and process to solve the heat dissipation problem, can have more than 30,000 hours of life, but the design or process of poor LED display may only thousands of hours or even shorter life.

Professional development, design, strict production management, enterprises from the selection of components, materials, from advanced automated operation machinery to the strict quality control of the production process (including the aging of the intermediate components), each link affects the quality of the LED display.

So how to distinguish the quality of LED screen? The following points hope to bring you some inspiration.

  1. Flatness LED display surface flatness should be within ±1mm, to ensure that the display image does not distort, local convex or concave will lead to the viewing Angle of the display appears dead. The flatness is mainly determined by the production process.
  2. The brightness of the indoor full color screen should be above 800cd/m2, the brightness of the outdoor full color screen should be above 1500cd/m2, in order to ensure the normal work of the display, otherwise it will be because the brightness is too low and can not see the image displayed, the size of the brightness is mainly determined by the quality of the LED tube core.

The size of the viewing Angle directly determines the number of the display audience, so the larger the better, the size of the viewing Angle is mainly determined by the packaging of the tube core.

  1. The white balance effect is one of the most important indicators of the display screen, color science when the ratio of red, green and blue three primary colors is 1:4:6:0.16 will show pure white, if the actual proportion is a little deviation will appear white balance deviation, display screen control system to decide, the tube core also has an impact on the color reduction.

Generally, we should pay attention to whether the white is blue, yellowish green phenomenon, the quality of the white balance is mainly by the display

  1. The reducibility of color refers to the reducibility of the display screen to the color, both the display screen display color should be highly consistent with the color of the playback source, so as to ensure the reality of the image.
  2. There is no Mosaic, dead point phenomenon Mosaic refers to the small four squares that appear on the display screen and are usually steady or black, both module necrosis phenomenon, the main reason is that the quality of the connector used by the display screen is not up to standard.

Dead point refers to a single point that is usually steady or black on the LED display, and the number of dead points is mainly determined by the quality of the tube core.

  1. Color block refers to the existence of a more obvious color difference between adjacent modules, the transition of color to the module as a unit: the phenomenon of color blocks is mainly caused by the poor control system, the gray level is not high, and the scanning frequency is low.

7.LED outdoor signs will be affected by many factors, resulting in unsatisfactory display or malfunctioning solutions:

1, power interference:

Interference factors: power supply fluctuation, power supply noise, etc.

Solution: Use stable power supply, and add power filter, voltage regulator and other equipment to reduce the fluctuation and noise of the power supply. Free to teach you LED display power south.

2, signal line interference:

Interference factor: the signal line is subject to electromagnetic interference or crosstalk.

Solution: Use a signal line with good shielding performance, and keep the distance between the signal line and the power line to reduce electromagnetic interference. If conditions permit, you can use optical fiber to transmit signal signal line interference.

3, temperature interference:

Interference factors: The temperature is too high or too low, resulting in abnormal work of the LED display.

Solution: Ensure that the ventilation of the LED display is good to avoid overheating. In a cold environment, you can use a heating device to maintain the normal operating temperature of the display. 4, environmental light interference:

Interference factors: strong ambient light exposure leads to unclear display content.

Solution: Adjust the brightness and contrast of the display screen, so that it can adapt to the intensity of the ambient light, while choosing the appropriate display installation position.

5, electromagnetic interference:

Interference factor: Electromagnetic radiation generated by nearby devices interferes with the display screen.

Solution: Increase shielding measures, such as metal shielding, to reduce the impact of electromagnetic radiation on the LED display.

6, data transmission interference:

Interference factors: interference on the data transmission line leads to data transmission errors.

Solution: Using differential signal transmission, adding data error correction code and other technologies to improve the reliability of data transmission.

7, ground interference:

Interference factors: poor grounding leads to signal interference.

Solution: Ensure a good ground connection to avoid interference from the ground circuit.

8, electrostatic interference:

Interference factors: static electricity may cause damage to the LED display.

Solution: Use anti-static measures, such as adding static protection devices and static elimination devices, to ensure that the display works properly.

The comprehensive application of the above solution can effectively reduce the signal interference of the LED display screen and ensure the stability and good display effect. If you still encounter professional LED display maintenance services under special circumstances.

8.Outdoor LED display in the process of use, it is inevitable that there will be bad lights, local black screens and other imagination, generally because there is a problem on the LED display module.

Outdoor LED display module failure and solutions:
