The invention relates to an apparatus with an electronic

Anzeigeeiement for displaying safety information, particularly for displaying escape signs in a dangerous situation.

Such a device is known from DE 147 22 406 AI. Here, on the light-emitting diodes formed by the electronic display element is a

pictogram-like representation and an arrow for the escape route appears.

According to DE 103 26 432 AI a substance used as an information and advertising space screen can be switched to a dangerous situation in an escape route indicator.

In a dangerous situation, but the perception is often limited, so that the security alert message displayed on the Anzeigeeiement is not, or not perceived correctly. In addition, the information content of the displayed by the display devices known safety instructions to be desired.

Object of the invention is therefore a device for displaying

provide safety information, can be displayed with increased information content and especially easier to disclosing information content with the safety instructions.

This is inventively achieved with the device characterized in claim 1. In the dependent claims advantageous embodiments are the

device of the invention repeatedly.

With the inventive apparatus, a part of the to be displayed on the 'display element electronic safety instruction is formed at least by an animation, that is, the reproduction of a picture sequence, which gives the impression of a movement. This image sequence, for example, a running arrow, a be a warning Move ung executive hand or the like.

For this purpose, the apparatus comprises a control unit for calculating the content of the to be displayed safety instructions. That is, with the control unit is calculated, what to display content, such as a escape route indicator, the escape direction. The calculated by the control unit of the contents to be displayed safety instructions can be assembled with a graphic unit stored in the memory and pixels displayed on the electronic display element. That is, the graphics unit is due to the commands of the control unit to be displayed on the electronic display element content together, so for example each of a sequence of images for the alarm or the normal case, for example, in

Alarm case the current arrow, a flashing display, etc. It is formed at least a part of the data stored in the memory of the graphics unit picture elements for the animation through image sequences.

By the control unit, however, is not only the particular to be displayed

Picture element determined to be composed from the graphics unit and displayed, but also the vector, that is the mathematical function, from which the type of by animation motion shown (for example, speed, direction, grouping, time or sequence) is obtained. Ie for example,

Speed ​​of the current arrow an escape route indicator.

An animation, for example, a running arrow is significantly faster and more consistent content perceived, especially in a dangerous situation with smoke development as in a case of fire. Also directs example, a flashing frame around the plate faster attention to the content of the character. This is especially true for the visually impaired or cognitively impaired persons.

A calculated by the Security Token even display content allows to represent many more different content depending on a danger sign. Thus, a warning icon may be displayed in front of the gas, for example, on the same display element when a connected sensor has detected toxic gases, while to another or the same time, an escape route indication can be displayed as a result of evacuation message. The electronic display element is preferably formed by a screen, in particular a liquid crystal, plasma or matrix screen. The matrix screen can be a LED dot matrix screen. Also the electronic display element may be formed by a digital projector.

In the memory of the graphics unit further image elements are normally stored out of the frame sequences for animation, so pixels for a static image on the electronic display element. These pixels can

his particular alphanumeric data. Thus stored letters and characters by the memory of the graphics unit, notification is displayed in any language on the electronic display element.

The inventive device can be designed such that it represents on the electronic display element two or more different safety instructions. In the context of animation, this has the advantage alternately

To display different safety instructions or safety signs, ie signs 1 -> Character 2 -> Character 1 -> character 2 ... For the purposes of this has the advantage of being able to logically use related characters, such as an evacuation signs / escape direction signs in front of a fire hazard - character / no smoking at a gas alarm.

Furthermore, the inventive device can be designed such that they two or more electronic safety information together on the

represents display element. can, here for the application. as a

Evacuation symbol are used together with a wheelchair and an arrow mark to indicate a disabled accessible escape route. From the logical combination of several symbols, a new logical connection is obtained.

The inventive device is designed in particular to indicate the flight path and / or of the engagement path for rescue workers in an emergency at any object, in which people are present, such as tall buildings,

Railway stations, airport buildings and shopping centers, as well as industrial plants, tunnels and other underground structures, such as underground stations, as well as ships or the like. The emergency can be for example a fire, an accident, a terrorist attack or the like. The inventive device can especially standard-compliant

represent pictograms on the display element. These include

Fire safety signs, warning signs, rules and prohibition signs and signs.

The device may also provide an interface for a

and / or network connection one or more danger sensors.

The network connection can be connected, for example via radio or Ethernet for example, to a control center, for example, the fire alarm system of the subject which passes on the alarm or fire alarms of the object to the inventive apparatus. The device can then calculate with this information the safest escape route and display. Ie the panel will only alarm on and calculate the signs their

Direction independently.

The danger sensors can fire sensors, ie, in particular smoke or heat sensors, sensors to detect dangerous substances such as flammable or toxic gases, explosives, biological agents or radioactive radiation to be. However, the risk sensor may for example also be configured to detect a closed door.

That is, the invention device may also be configured to independently calculate the to display safety instructions.

Also, the inventive device may calculate their content such as that synchronization between a plurality of device is not required in a building, since they all independently of one another clearly in

responsive sensor information.

That is, the inventive device may, for example, calculate the information content of the animated safety instruction itself by one or more sensors connected to the interface.

Thus, preferably also the control unit to a memory. In the memory of the control unit for example, the building topology can be stored in order to determine the escape route, further configuration data or threshold values,

for example, the temperature or the content of toxic gases. With a

Evacuation algorithm can then be determined by the control unit of the escape route, but also whether an alarm or the normal state. The inventive apparatus is thereto also preferably provided with its own emergency power supply, such as battery.

Preferably, the device according to the invention is formed by a plate which comprises the electronic display element, the electronics for the control unit and the graphic unit including memory, and possibly an interface, and / or its own power supply. The electronics can be provided on a plate arranged in the board.
