Electra Sign now exclusively offers Watchfire’s high-resolution 8mm displays which are ideal for outdoor locations with significant pedestrian traffic, a nearby busy intersection or traffic congestion.
The 8mm features a surface mount device (SMD) LED package designed to deliver vibrant images with high contrast. The closer your LED sign is to your audience, the greater the visual impact and messaging flexibility. Most importantly the signs electronics are rated from -40 °C to 60 °C to withstand our harsh climates winter and summer.
Patented front ventilation, a slim cabinet, and beveled module edges offer near-seamless installation, even around curves. Every XVS 8mm sign includes live video capability, whole-sign color and brightness calibration, and automated sign diagnostics.
These 8mm signs use a surface mount device (SMD) that contains red, green and blue under a single lens. This produces a high-quality display that provides exceptional resolution for crisp, vivid content and wide viewing angles.
Engineered and Built for Reliability and Quality:
Every module is encapsulated to be ruggedly durable in all kinds of weather.
Controlled thermal and mechanical stress is applied during Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT) to identify design weaknesses and opportunities for product improvement. Cabinets are rated for temperatures ranging from -40 °F to 140 °F.
Extruded aluminum, precision-mitered corners, solid welds, and stainless fasteners make our cabinets strong yet lightweight and stand up to corrosion for years of worry-free performance.
Average energy use equals about 1/3 of maximum amperage. All signs are UL 48 & CUL 48 listed and UL Energy Efficiency Certified. Displays are verified to be in compliance with FCC regulations regarding emissions interference.
It’s was a cold and windy day in Winnipeg, but that never stops the love of families coming out to take in the Santa Claus Parade and all its wonders.
This year in 2018 was a very special event that almost didn’t take place. Funding was low, and the Santa float needed huge repairs, otherwise, the parade would be canceled. Several sponsors stepped up to the ice-cold plate and donated enough to keep Santa’s float and the parade moving forward.
Electra Sign was pleased to answer a unique call from the Parade organizers to drive Manitoba’s only Mobile LED Messaging Truck displaying the names of all sponsors and thanking them for making this happen.

In 1909, Royal Enfield expanded its offerings by introducing a small motorcycle with a Swiss origin motor. Fast forward into 1949 where India took to enjoy the look and feel of these genuine products. It wasn’t until 1955 when the Indian Government made the decision to employ their police departments and army forces with the Bullet 350 as the necessary bike for the job.
It was then that the original manufacturer out of Redditch, Worcestershire (Redditch Company) had partnered with Madras Motors in India and formed Enfield India where the passing years saw the Bullet dominating the Indian Highways and became increasingly popular year after year. In 1994 the name changed and became Royal Enfield.
Bringing this amazing brand of precision engineering closer to home, Electra Sign was asked to keep the branding intact and create a custom LED sign that would influence motorcycle enthusiasts to enter into a new experience.
