Wireless GPRS Solution for LED Display Screen
Tag: LED Wireless GPRS Solution, LED Screen Technical Support, LED display service, XIXUN LEDEDITOR


LED display screen has been widely used in various fields, such as advertisement, traffic, etc. However, it is hard for users to connecting control cards with computers due to numerous screens and widely distribution. In order to solve this problem, our company has successfully researched and developed LED sign control system based on GPRS. As long as users can access to internet and find the control card that connects with GPRS, they can control programs and achieve off-site control. In this way, users can solve problems of transmitting over long distance and of one PC controls multiple LED display screens.


1. Making high efficiency and reliable Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) based on features of GPRS communication so as to adjust packets transfer rates (Mbps) automatically and use GPRS bandwidth effectively, average rates could reach to 15kbps.
2. Supporting Transmission Data Retrieval and Document Resuming. It just transmits the amendment part every time so as to reduce GPRS traffic and save costs for customers.
3. GPRS not only can transmit simple message but also pictures and videos.
4. LED editor Software will process videos and pictures according to screen size then through harmless compression and storage, making a storage cell can perform information as much as possible.

NOTE: Methods of changing M-GPRS DTU configuration

Configuration preparation and connection:

>> Insert web-enabled GPRS data card into SIM connector then connect M-GPRS Connect GPRS with PC by the serial port line
>> Connect M-GPRS antenna.

Login configuration interface:
Step 1: Running M-GPRS-DTU-CF.exe software, click on “Options” button then select the serial port number that PC connects with M-GPRS in the box of “COM Option”, click OK. Click on “Start Confg” button. (Turn on M-GPRS power within 15 seconds after clicking on “ start configuration”.)As shown in image 20-11 in below:



Figure 20-11



Step 2: Turn on M-GPRS power (power port is inner positive and exterior negative).

Step 3: When version information appears in configuration box, please press “enter” into configuration interface. In foreign country, please change APN parameters, as shown in image 20-12 in below:

1.4 Configuring baud rate of serial port for control card

Under stand-alone mode, running LED Editor then selecting Network or COM communication type, Menu bar → Options → Hardware Setup, as shown in image 20-13 in below:



Figure 20-13


Baud rates of COM-R232 and M-GPRS DTU must keep consistent with each other. As shown in image 20-14 in below:
