Budgeting for interactive exhibits is not always an easy process. To reduce the cost of interactive electronic systems used for display and exhibition applications, SIGNAL-INNOVA has developed a modular approach to interactive electronics. This modular approach enables SIGNAL-INNOVA to assemble custom systems using standard input/output modules under the control of our programmable controllers. Since each application has its own unique set of requirements, it is necessary to quote each system individually. However, the following chart has been prepared to give exhibit designers and planners a "ballpark" guide. If you have a current or future project which you feel could benefit by including interactive technology, please call (800) 417-9060 to take advantage of our free costing and feasibility service.
