Iowa Direct Equipment began in 1994 with the vision to provide honest, reliable service to schools and institutions who use capital equipment in their facilities that require ongoing maintenance, repair and replacement. We still have that clear vision today. Our philosophy is to partner with our customers to help them improve safety and performance of their equipment while reducing the cost to own and maintain their facilities. We began providing services for bleachers, auditorium seating, athletic flooring, athletic equipment and scoreboards in athletic facilities throughout the Midwest. Today, we also help our customers design, source and install their equipment.
Iowa Direct Equipment is able to service all of your Fair-Play scoreboard and message centers. We stock a full line of spare parts from switches and diodes to loaner controls and processors to make sure your equipment is back up and running in a timely manner. We even have some parts still available to repair scoreboards dating back to the 1950’s.
Periodically we have extra controls and processors in our inventory that are for sale. If you are looking for used parts to have spares on-hand, we may be able to help or can point you in the direction of someone else who can.
Have you thought about converting your existing Fair-Play scoreboard to wireless? Many manufacturers, including Fair-Play, use spread spectrum technology in their wireless controls to avoid interference from other electronic devices. However, there are differences in how the signals are transmitted. Fair-Play uses direct sequence technology designed for sports applications.
Direct sequence transmission locks onto the receiver at start-up and sends thousands of radio signals over one radio channel to the scoreboard. The radio signal travels over a longer range, which is important for open playing fields, and the radio signals remain consistent to ensure game clock accuracy. We would be more than happy to quote you a price to give you this type of versatility to your sporting events.
Contact Us to set up a yearly inspection of ALL your facilities scoreboards and message centers. Service contracts are also available to service everything in your facility including your backstops and bleachers.
