Where are Novanex LED signs made?
Novanex assembles our LED signs at our factory in Virginia with as many local components as possible. Our cases and lenses and circuit boards are all produced in Virginia. The components on the circuit boards and LEDs must still be sourced from Asia, but the software that operates the signs is ours, is supported by us, and our signs carry a 5 year factory warranty.
Which Novanex LED sign should we purchase?
Novanex offers two models of LED signs: the OAX2-CS and OAX2-EC. Both are IP NTP PoE clocks and both can receive messages you generate from a secure web page, or integrate to mass notification providers like Omnilert and Rave Alerts. The OAX2-EC includes a built-in flashing light and speaker to draw attention to a critical message display.
How do Novanex LED emergency notification displays get messages from a mass notification messaging provider?
Each sign automatically polls your account for active text alerts sent from your mass notification provider.
How often will the sign check for new messages?
Our displays check your mass notification account every 30 seconds and immediately displays any new active message.
What type of server do I need?
No server is required since each LED sign has operates independently.
Do I need a mass notification messaging provider to send messages to the sign?
You can use our web generated ad-hoc messaging function to send a message to all your displays without subscribing to a partner's provider service. Our technology partners offer advanced features like message scheduling and selectable delivery options.
Are there specific power requirements?
No, just provide a powered Ethernet cable to the display and plug it in; no A/C power outlet is required.
What's a "powered Ethernet cable"?
Ethernet cables (Cat 5 or Cat 6) can deliver power to low voltage devices like our signs, IP phones, door access control pads, security cameras, sensors and other devices.
How does the power get to the Ethernet cable?
The Ethernet cables get their power from a PoE switch like this single port power injector that we sell:
Or from a larger four port switch that would power four LED signs:
or from a larger commercial models like this Cisco switch:
Why should I buy a Power-over-Ethernet sign?
Power-over-Ethernet is less expensive in many ways: the PoE devices consume less power, and the devices don't need an AC outlet at each location which reduces your installation time and upfront costs.
Where are the signs typically installed?
Our facility only needs one or two large notification signs. Is it cost effective to buy one or two?
Absolutely! Since the signs operate without a server, there's no other initial investment except the purchase of the sign itself, and access to a switch
I've seen LED signs that work with fire life safety systems...can OnAlert connect to fire panels?
Models are available that integrate to the leading life safety fire system vendors like SimplexGrinnell (JCI) while also maintaining a connection to your mass notification system.
