Nexus Alpha Low Power Systems
Nexus Alpha Low Power Systems (NALPS) is the new company created around Nexus Alpha's Engineering Department.
Back in 1995 we designed our first generation of public display screens, called Intelligent Display Units (IDUs). These were provided to various clients over the next four years. Our LCD1 and LCD2 products (stainless steel, high-bright LCD panels suitable for outdoor use) came along after that. Our third generation systems were developed in 2007, these being MAIA (our touch screen information point) and HELIOS LITE/LED (our resilient LCD/LED displays).
Since 2005 Nexus Alpha’s Engineering Department has been concentrating on the development of ultra low power systems. This has led to the development of lower power computer (HERMES Lite), and solar powered information systems, CHRONOS. It is these innovative displays and low power computer systems that we have now spun out of Nexus Alpha as Nexus Alpha Low Power Systems (or NALPS).
Working with ScotRail, HITRANS and The Technology Strategy Board, we installed our first solar powered railway CIS systems in 2010 - CHRONOS Rail. These are now fully commissioned and installed on the Far North Line in Scotland. In late 2012 we launched our new CHRONOS Bus systems, and secured our first international sales to VIA Transit Authority in San Antonio, USA.
