Neon Sign Instructions Designer Software

      Click here for Training Videos for Sign Instructions Designer 2.0

The Sign Instructions Designer software will allow you to easily put together wiring instructions for your Neon or LED sign.

This software will also allow you to open and edit the Technical Data Sheets, customizing them for your specific needs, then print them out or export them for other uses.

The main purpose of this software was to easily allow people to comply with the new UL standard of supplying a wiring diagram. The Diagram must be left with the customer so that the Electrical Inspector can see the detail of how the sign is wired.

Here is the new UL 48 code change:

Disclaimer and Proper Use

High voltage, secondary wiring installations, should only be attempted by experienced electrical professionals. This manual is not a how-to guide covering all aspects of high-voltage neon installations. This manual is a visual reference guide used to help avoid common mistakes in secondary wiring. It can also be used as a complement to other materials in learning the basics about definitions, parts, and different types of installations found within the sign industry. This manual should not be relied upon as the sole source of information for high-voltage installations. At the time of printing, we believe the information found within is correct; however, codes and legislation change and that may outdate sections of this visual guide. The publishers or sponsors of this visual guide cannot be held liable for any damages or injury resulting from interpretations, or use of this manual as a basis for electrical installations. Installers of any high-voltage wiring should always conform to the relevant or applicable electrical practices, sign codes, electrical codes or other governing authorities.
