Can I put a longer power cord on the scoreboard to reach an existing receptacle?
Yes, the scoreboard has a detachable 6'7" IEC power cord that can be replaced with a longer one. The UL48 standard for signs limits the cord to 15' in length.
Can Nevco specify wall anchors?
The specific type of anchor and structural capability of the building wall to support the weight of the display should be specified by the architect of the building or engineer of record for the school district.
Can I use existing coax cable for my installation?
Most equipment now-a-days is wireless, but all Nevco controls and scoreboards have the capability of operating over the same coax cable that older generations of scoreboards used. Be sure and test the cable prior to know that it can still be used.
Can the equipment run on any voltage?
All Nevco Scoreboards, Message Centers and Video displays can run on any single phase voltage from 90 - 265VAC. Typically 120/208/240VAC are used. Confirm power requirements on the electrical instructions / prints for the equipment that you are installing.
Do I need to paint the steel columns and lateral tubing (if any)?
Yes, a rust inhibative protective coating should be applied to the steel before hanging the cabinets. Make sure you buy the correct primer/paint for the surface you are painting and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Do I need to get soil borings performed at the installation site?
Getting a geotechnical survey done at the installation site will eliminate risks of cost overruns during install. The standard installation prints assume class4 soil type, which is conservative in most areas. The footing depths shown on the installation prints can give scope to the contractor performing the soil borings so they know how deep to take the samples.
Does Nevco provide installation services?
