MLED Module

The MLED Display introduces a new, flexible way to build your timing screens on race day. With its lightweight and modular design you can use as many panels as you need to build your desired display size for your event. Each panel weighs just 800 grams so connecting the displays and mounting them is light work. Each MLED has a definition of 32×16 dots and can be assembled side by side up to a total of 8 modules. Multi lines can also be placed on top of each other’s.

MLED uses simple RS232 communication making it compatible with most timing software or alternatively links directly with your TBox timing device via the RS232 output.

We also have an MLED (model 20) with embedded radio receiver. Initially designed to work with our TBox-Radio model 41 and Smart-Chrono IOS app, it opens the door to a wide range of new possibilities and developments.
This module share the same network as our WIRC photocells and receives its data from a TBox-Radio which is located ideally less than 100 meters away with a direct line of sight (A few hundred meters can be reached depending of environmental conditions and devices location).

FDS propose a base “MLED-3S” kit contains 3 MLED panels, an aluminium mounting frame, connection cable and power supply, or the wireless solution “MLED-3R” with 1 MLED-Radio (Master) and 2 regular MLED modules.



Designed as an optional upgrade to our popular MLED modular LED display, MLED-CTRL transforms the standard LED panel into a multi-function intelligent display suitable for all types of sports and events.

It integrates functionalities as Bluetooth, GPS synchro, WIRC compatible radio transciever, digital temperature sensor reading input, audio line output and sync output for countdown applications, 2 wired time capture inputs.

The MLED-CTRL parameters can be set either using the push button menu, or via our IOS and PC applications.

We propose 7 modes of operation (contact your local reseller as some modes need an activation key):

  • User text mode (RS232/RS485 standard protocol)
  • Time / Date / temperature
  • Start-Finish
  • Speed trap
  • Countrer
  • CountDown (basic operation)
  • Start-Clock

(Time, Lap, Text)
