provide outstanding performance with or without the keyboard. Many of
the earliest Alpha signs are still operating flawlessly today
after more than twenty years of operation. Alpha signs have very

to serve you well for years to come, unless you lose the power supply,
or the sign fails.

signs are no longer available, but if your sign needs repair, please

Alpha Signs With Software
can use AlphaNet software and RS485
connectivity items to program your Alpha sign by computer.
AlphaNet software to program your sign is a much better programming
solution than using either the cable remote keyboard. Editing messages
on a computer screen is MUCH easier than editing messages on the screen
of the sign and in sign memory.
Alpha sign models can use either RS485 connectivity items or
Ethernet connectivity items. Click here

Alpha signs have modified firmware, so they can be used in special
applications, such as News Ticker, Stock Ticker, Sports Ticker, or Lottery
displays, or as ACD readerboards for specific phone systems. Alpha
signs with modified firmware often will not work with an Alpha
programming keyboard or with Alpha software.
You may be able to order a replacement firmware chip by calling 1-800-223-4636.
