1. A billboard sign having a plurality of display modules mechanically coupled to a signage mounting structure, comprising:

  • a plurality of compound structural frames mounted to a front area of the signage mounting structure and arranged in a frame array, wherein each individual one of said plurality of compound structural frames is provided with a plurality of structural bay members, each individual structural bay member for receiving and supporting therein an individual one of said plurality of display modules;

    at least one low voltage junction box mounted to a back-side area of the signage mounting structure for facilitating the distribution of a source of low voltage constant current power to the plurality of display modules;

    at least one preformed wiring harness electrically and mechanically coupled between said at least one low voltage junction box and the plurality of display modules;

    said at least one preformed wiring harness extending from said at least one low voltage junction box to a frontside of an individual one of said plurality of compound structural frames and then being mechanically coupled to an array of structural bay members;

    wherein said preformed wiring harness includes a power introduction node for facilitating power branching between adjacent compound structural frames in said frame array; and

    wherein said power introduction node is dimensioned to be mechanically press fit into a corresponding power introduction node receptacle for providing a wire harness anchoring point in said frame array.
