AdMet desto dimensions Hanover

Postby ferro » Fri Aug 25, 2017 5:48 pm

Wasnt sure where to put this (been a while since i`ve even logged in too)

am after the dimensions of the Front / Side / Rear destos, on the Admet fleet using Hanover controller.

Planning on buying one off ebay, and a screen at some stage in the next 12 months.

Yes i am aware there are a few threads on here, but none that are specific to Adelaide (well that i can find)
& i know sometimes bumping old threads can be frowned upon / considered taboo.

or unless someone has a started Adelaide database for helen, they ware willing to share.

You'll find there are various sizes in use, including LEDs and the older style flip-dots.

Most of the front ones should be about the same size, and most of the rear ones should be about the same size but there are a few different dimensions for side destos in use.

Sorry I can't help with any of the sizes.

Time to police bus lanes which are used by arrogant car drivers.
Time to work for better timetables and better connections.

Are you just after the x/y dimensions of the visible display as per what you see when looking at a bus or do you want the x/y/z dimensions of each unit type as a whole?

Won't that depend on whether the desto is flip-dot or LED?

true, I didnt think of that at the time of posting.

Lets say both, but aim for LED

I'll investigate and report back.

Edit: in the meantime I found this which might be of assistance

2nd edit: ...and also this which looks like it might be even better.

OK, here's the real deal. This is what is fitted to the front of the new style Scanias. Can't get better info than this.
