The ten metre long and 3.5m high BROADBEACH sign was installed at Victoria Park opposite the Star Casino in early 2018, giving the area a facelift in preparation for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, held on the Gold Coast.
Early this year, the Gold Coast City Council approached ULA Group to replace the existing lighting control system with a reliable sophisticated solution, which would provide further control options and connectivity. ULA Group engaged Onesol Contracting to assist with the installation of the new system.
The old DMX drivers in charge of the existing LED strip lighting system were replaced with Acclaim Lighting AL1 & AL4 DMX drivers. Twenty of each model were installed inside a switchboard enclosure located behind the letter installation, 2 drivers per letter. The AL4’s are handling the RGB LED strip within and the AL1’s taking care of the White LED strip. All the cables between the letters and drivers were upgraded as well with multicore flex cables.
