Press release   •   Dec 19, 2012 16:19 EST

Van Nuys, Calif., – December
– IEE, Inc., renown for its innovative, cutting-edge display
technologies, now offers the world’s first all-aluminum pole display, expanding the company’s existing line of high-quality, high-reliability retail POS display peripherals.

Developed to comply with US public
transportation fire-smoke-toxicity (FST) regulations, IEE’s new 2X20 9 mm vacuum
fluorescent display (VFD) pole displays are replacing molded plastic poles with
those made from flame-resistant aluminum.  This makes the new displays ideal for use in mass
transit applications such as ferries, trains and buses.

The new VFD Pole Display is
designed to communicate through either a serial or USB interface. It comes in selectable
pole lengths from 2” to 22”, and can be finished with selected lens and paint

Steve Motter, vice president of
IEE, noted, “Our customer came to us with a set of application-specific
requirements and a tight delivery schedule. 
IEE’s design engineering team worked closely with the customer to design
a POS equipment solution that met the public transportation FST regulations.” 

Motter continued, “As a U.S. small
business, we take pride in the IEE culture of listening and responding to our
customers’ needs.  We’re uniquely
positioned to efficiently manufacture our displays in high volume, yet dynamic
enough to offer design customization for our customers.  Everything we do, from conceptual design to full
rate manufacturing, is done from our headquarters in Van Nuys, California.”

Pricing and delivery for an aluminum pole display is
dependent upon configuration.
