Optical and audible signals have always played an important role and have been continually developed over the centuries. Even in ancient times, wood-fired beacons kept seafarers on course. Today, state-of-the-art LED technology serves as a light source for a variety of signaling applications.
There are also a number of examples in our everyday life that illustrate the great advantage of easy-to-understand signals: A red traffic light, the horn of a car or the siren of a fire engine. These signals send a message to the recipient quickly and non-verbally, regardless of the language they speak.
This is precisely why optical and audible signals are also used in industrial environments, production, automation, logistics and building technology to warn, guide and protect everyone in the immediate vicinity.
In modern industry, signal technology is taken a “step further”: In addition to classic optical and acoustic signaling, intelligently networked, retrofittable systems and clever Industry 4.0 solutions are being used to make networking easy for companies of all sizes. Make processes faster, leaner, better and more efficient – simply at the touch of a button.
Download the free white paper to understand the importance of choosing the right signal for everyone’s safety. You will also learn which signaling is suitable for which application and how modern Andon systems can optimise manual production and logistics as well as
how quickly, easily and uncomplicatedly machines, workstations or flow racks can be networked using modern, radio-based signal technology.
As modern signal devices not only warn, guide and protect on site, both optically and acoustically, but also communicate intelligently with each other, this white paper presents state-of-the-art networking technologies: Our signal devices have the latest interfaces – whether IO-Link, AS-i, USB or as a wireless network – enabling fast, flexible and uncomplicated data exchange.
