Watchfire Signs announces FCC emissions guarantee for its LED signs

May 17, 2017

Watchfire Signs recently announced its LED signs and digital billboards meet FCC emissions guidelines. This announcement is due to recent charges of electromagnetic interference in the US from imported digital signs and billboards, according to a press release.

The FCC requires that all digital signs need to be tested to make sure they won't cause electromagnetic interference with other devices. Manufacturers must also be tested by an accredited third-party testing lab, but many importers skip the test, according to the release.

"All sign models engineered and manufactured by Watchfire are verified to pass FCC Part 15 emissions standards by an independent lab and carry the required sticker before being sold in the United States,” Darrin Friskney, vice president at Watchfire Signs, said in the release. "Electromagnetic interference may seem benign, but an interference claim that can’t be remedied can ruin a business overnight—without warning. We are taking the extra step of providing a guarantee to demonstrate to customers and to the industry our confidence in the design of our products. We hope all compliant manufacturers will follow suit."

Watchfire's FCC emissions guarantee ensures buyers that it will either fix any Watchfire product that causes interference or give a refund.
