Local status indication provides operators and supervisors with clear information when and where they need it so that they can quickly resolve critical status conditions. LED indicators can be easily understood in any language and with minimal training.
For operators, illuminated indicators, touch buttons, and e-stops are nearby and provide status clearly, so they can act quickly and confidently when problems occur.
Tower lights and other high visibility indicators communicate machine, work cell, and inventory status at a glance, helping supervisors monitor multiple stations or machines and identify and resolve issues effectively.
A local indication is a must, but several challenges may impact the type of indicator that you choose for your application.
Visibility: It is essential to understand who needs to see the indicator to identify the right solution. Tower lights mounted above the machine are ideal for supervisors who need to be able to scan the work area and quickly identify stations that need assistance; meanwhile, operators may need a solution that is within their normal sightlines.
Environment: Industrial environments can be harsh, and local indicators are often right in the middle of the process. They may be exposed to vibration, impact, spills, and more that can damage the electronics. Choosing a rugged LED indicator built for industrial use is a must to protect your investment.
