Whether Indoor LED Screen Can Change to Outdoor Use or Not

Recently optokingdom Mr Cen met customer consultation, said his indoor LED display used for a period of time, now want to change to use in outdoor environment. asked that if he can change the indoor led screen to the outdoor LED screen directly? To solve this problem, we answer the following questions for our clients:
First of all, this is definitely not changed, the main reasons are as follows:
1. Brightness limits. Indoor LED screen brightness requirements are not high, using a dynamic scanning circuit, outdoor led screen brightness higher, static scanning circuit, the hardware difference between the two. Dynamic scanning is actually in order to save hardware cost and use, with the driver chip number is more than ten times, determines the indoor display brightness is relatively low, generally 1500cd/ square meters or so, only suitable for indoor use.
2. Waterproof limits. Indoor screen structure does not require simple waterproof or water treatment, and outdoor LED display high waterproof requirement in production when the waterproof treatment of cable and the box, so in the box structure itself requires a difference.
3. Viewing distance limit. Indoor LED display viewing distance is generally P3 P4 P5 P6 model, so the area is generally small, in 15 square meters, while the outdoor LED display requirements viewing distance is more far away, the model is generally P10 P16 P20, so it decided it’s area much larger, more than 30 square.
In a word, the indoor and outdoor LED display screen because of its brightness, water-proof treatment, selection of different models, resulting in the different from start of production, raw materials, accessories, cabinet and other hardware , so it is not good to change, change will only The loss outweighs the gain. You’d better to buy another one outdoor led display.

How to calculate the outdoor LED display screen

Outdoor LED display is made up of a number of box stitching, and the box is composed of a number of modules in the box, that is to say the length / width, width must be an integer multiple of long / unit board, not limited to a multiple of.


Because the sizes of different types of display modules are sometimes different, the model of the display screen is determined, and the size of the module can be finalized, and the size of the box is basically determined. Optokingdom outdoor P16 full-color display as an example, optokingdom P16 led display cabinet size: 768*768, 768*1024, 1024, *768, 1024*1024, 512*512 and so on .
In order to facilitate your understanding, here, for example: customers want to custom a P16 outdoor LED display, requiring size of 20 meters long, 12 meters wide, with a total area of 240 square meters.
If you choose the size of the cabinet 768*768, you can draw:
length require the number of cabinets : 20 / 0.768=26.0412
Width require the number of cabinets : 12 / 0.768=15.625.
The actual size of the LED screen will be: 26 boxes in length, 16 boxes in width.
Actual length: 26 * 0.768=19.968 M.
Actual width: 16 * 0.768=12.288 M.
Actual area: 19.968 * 12.288=245.37 square meters

Outdoor LED display Common Models And Purchasing Skills

Customers want to buy outdoor led display, would care for the model, and the installation environment, price etc.. Conventional methods are based on visual distance and screen size to determine the model, that would be cost-effective. How? Below article optokingdom will show you clearly.

First of all, the common outdoor LED display models include: P6, P8, P10, P12, P16, P20 and so on. You will have doubt, what the meaning of this P and the original P is behind the figures? Point spacing, the numerical concrete spacing unit, mm.

Such as P6 and P8, P6 outdoor LED screen spacing is 6mm, P8 screen is 8mm. And the smaller the figure behind P, the more pixels in the unit area, the clearer the picture. P6 pixel density of 27777 / square meters, P8 pixel density of 15625 / square meters, so the picture is more clear than P8 P6. Watch distance (sight distance) near the election of P6, P8 or P10, watch distance (sight distance) far from the choice of P12, P16.
Outdoor LED display size is generally customized, demand more, before you install, consider the following points:

1. screen installation: wall or column type?

2. screen area: you need to know the length, width and size of the screen.

3., to do the display, mainly used to show what, what special playback requirements?

4. display model: according to size, installation requirements, the environment to provide advice, will provide CAD construction design paper, guarantee the effect.

5. site environment photos: provide photos,

6. provide the viewing distance after the LED screen is installed. This is very important, as has been said above, near the distance from the point of view of the choice of small outdoor LED screen, such as P8, P10, far sight from the choice of P16, P20.

Outdoor LED Display Assembly Introdution

The present invention relates to an outdoor led display assembly, and more particularly to an outdoor led display assembly having a plurality of particularly designed screws which are remained on a bottom plate of the led display assembly when the bottom plate of the outdoor led display assembly is disassembled for proceeding with repair or maintenance of the led display assembly.

A conventional outdoor led display assembly comprises a driving circuit module assembly and a led lighting display electronically connecting with the driving circuit module assembly. The driving circuit module assembly comprises a bottom plate. A plurality of screws extends through the bottom plate and engages with the driving circuit module to mount the bottom plate on the driving circuit module assembly. The screws can easily drop from the bottom plate when the screws are loosened from the bottom plate so that the bottom plate can be removed from the driving circuit module assembly in order to proceed with a repair or maintenance of the outdoor transparent led display.

What is needed, therefore, is an outdoor led display assembly having a plurality of screws which are still remained on a bottom plate of the outdoor led display assembly when the bottom plate of the outdoor led display assembly is disassembled.

An outdoor led display assembly includes a receiving member and an standard led display mounted on the receiving member. The led display includes a heat sink and a plurality of led modules mounted on the heat sink. The receiving member includes a bottom plate. A plurality of screw assemblies extends through the bottom plate to engage with the receiving member to mount the bottom plate on the receiving member. Each of the screw assemblies includes a screw and a circlip snapping with the screw. The bottom plate of the receiving member is sandwiched between the head and the circlip. Thus, when the screws are loosened from the receiving member, the screws are still remained on the bottom plate to prevent the screws from dropping from the outdoor led display. A wire interconnects the bottom plate and the receiving member whereby the bottom plate is still attached to the receiving member even when the screws are all loosened from the receiving member.

How Effective Waterproof to Outdoor LED Display

As we all know, LED display is divided into indoor and outdoor, indoor display needs moisture-proof, outdoor display not only need moisture-proof, as well as waterproof. If waterproof, moisture-proof-proof work is not in place, it is extremely likely to cause a short circuit, serious may also cause a fire, etc.. So, in this storm faster than the open book of the season, waterproof, moisture-proof is the essential work of LED display.

How to do LED display moisture-proof, waterproof?
OFSE391 (6)
For indoor display, the first moderate ventilation. Moderate ventilation can help the water vapor attached to the display screen to evaporate quickly, reducing the relative humidity of the indoor environment. However, avoid in some wind and humid weather ventilation, this will increase the indoor humidity; secondly, placed desiccant indoors, with moisture-proof to physics, reduce the moisture-proof in the air; or open air conditioning dehumidification, if the screen is mounted in the space to install air conditioning, you can turn on the air pumping damp weather wet.

The outdoor LED display itself environment than the complex indoor, indoor moisture-proof can take the method, but the outdoor screen should not only consider the damp problem, but also make daily maintenance of waterproof work, especially in the rainy season, so a good seal installation can help the display screen to reduce the influent risk, regular cleaning and display attached to the dust, can also help to display better heat dissipation, reduce adhesion of water vapor.
At the same time, late in the process, PCB board, LED display the humidity caused by power supply, power line etc components will be easily oxidized corrosion, and the failure, so this requires us to make the LED display, the PCB board to do anti-corrosion treatment. For example, the coating of Sanhuang paint, power supply and power line to use high quality accessories, welding is the most susceptible to corrosion in place, should pay attention to the protection work, especially the frame, easy to rust, rust treatment do best.

Finally, whether indoor or outdoor screen screen. The most effective way to avoid the wet damage function is often used to display, the working state of display itself will generate some heat, some water vapor can be evaporated, thus greatly reducing the possibility of short-circuit caused by damp. Therefore, the regular use of the display, the relative humidity of the display screen is not much smaller.

Outdoor Led Display Cleaning Dust and Impurities Steps and Methods

Outdoor LED display gradually into the “HD” era, the screen display and color reproduction is particularly important. Factors that determine these effects are in addition to uniformity, grayscale, refresh rate, contrast, color gamut and color temperature, as well as dirt and dust. Therefore, the need for regular outdoor led display for cleaning, to ensure that led screen display.

LED display cleaning is a high-altitude operations, need to be equipped with professional cleaning team. Cleaning operations using high-altitude sling way (commonly known as Spider-Man) or mining robes, with professional cleaning equipment, cleaning personnel according to the screen on the different dirt to choose a different cleaning agent targeted cleaning, so as not to damage the led lamp And the premise of the face of the completion of LED display cleaning work.

After the installation of cleaning in order to clear the accumulation of dust and impurities after a period of time, we must first consider the purchase of better quality cleaning kit, the cost of cleaning fluid, including electrolysis, high purity distilled water, antistatic liquid, etc., can effectively clean the LED screen On the dust and other stains. Some users think that water can be, but also will not affect the outdoor LED display. But the cleaning effect of water is relatively poor, and clean the dust will be attached again. At the same time need to pay attention to is that you can not spray the water on the screen, but to a little cleaning fluid sprayed on the cleaning cloth, and then gently wipe along the same direction, and before cleaning, the need to power cord Pull out.
There are three steps to clean up maintenance:
Step 1: Vacuum. Remove the dirt and dust from the surface of the display mask.
Step 2: Wet wash. Use water spray and steam humidification spray display mask, with a vacuum cleaner on the brush to brush the lamp mask, the dirt clean.
Step 3: Drying. Use a vacuum cleaner to dry the water after leaving the water droplets and water marks to ensure that the display mask clean and dust-free.
Outdoor LED display needs regular maintenance in order to play the best display effect.

What is the Difference Between Indoor and Outdoor LED display

indoor led display

A very important difference of indoor LED display and outdoor led display is the LED’s brightness, Indoor LED displays are just bright enough to be seen indoors, but have not bright enough to be seen in direct sunlight. Outdoor led panel signs can be seen and used in full-on, mid-day sunlight, and are weatherproof to withstand the harsh environmental conditions. Sometimes, people choose an outdoor led panel sign for indoor use, they just want the led panel sign to be seen from the street.

Another difference between indoor LED screens and outdoor LED screens relates to the resolutions that the screens offer. Because outdoor LED screens are normally intended to be viewed from farther distances than their indoor counterparts, outdoor screens can rely on lower resolutions with very little compromise in terms of visibility. Indoor LED screens that are intended to be viewed from shorter distances require higher resolutions to achieve picture with optimal quality.

The most obvious and commonly thought of difference between indoor LED displays and outdoor LED displays relates to the ability of the display to withstand inclimate weather conditions. Because indoor LED displays are not exposed to the elements, additional protections are not necessary, whereas with outdoor LED displays, weather protection is not an option, especially in certain geographic regions where extreme weather conditions are frequently experienced.

No matter the type of LED screen you are looking to purchase, there are certain characteristics that you should be sure to take into account. There are reasons why we manufacture indoor LED displays the way we do, and there are other reasons why outdoor LED displays are manufactured differently. When deciding which LED screen is right for you, be sure to take each of these factors into consideration.
