Modular Stacking Beacons

Modular Stacking Beacons

Modular Stacking Beacons are also known as Beacon Stacks, Andon Lights, Indicator Lights, Signal Tower Lights and Light Towers.
They are a very easy to use product due to their click together mechanism, making them ideal for many applications, particularly for multi-signalling applications.

The design of modular stacking beacons means each tower can be comprised of different lamp types, different colours, different mode types and sounders all mixed freely in one stack, giving it the versatility to be used in so many applications and giving the end-user ease of use.
This design also helps with future maintenance as modules can be added or removed safely and with ease.

Stacking beacons are essential for manufacturing environments as well as places where process and machine operation take place due to their instant and easy understanding. Their ideal use in on various types of equipment to show the operating status of machinery in process control environments, increasing productivity and minimising wastage time, but they are so versatile that you have probably seen them in supermarkets too on the self-checkout tills!
Modern technology allows these types of beacons to be used to their full potential as they can be controlled using PC control systems and controllers incorporating sensors, timers and relays.

What are Modular Stacking Beacons?

Modular stacking beacons are also known as andon lights, indicator lights, signal tower lights and light towers. They are a very easy to use product due to their click together mechanism, making them ideal for many situations and positions – in particular for multi-signalling applications.

The design of modular stacking beacons means each tower can be comprised of different lamp types, colour, mode types and sounders all mixed freely in one stack, giving it the versatility to be used in so many applications and giving the end-user ease of use. This design also helps with future maintenance as modules can be added or removed safely and with ease.

Their ideal use is on various types of equipment to show the operating status of machinery in process control environments, increasing productivity and minimising wastage time, but are so versatile that you have probably also seen them in the supermarkets too on self-check out tills!

Current modern technology allows these types of beacons to be used to their full potential as they can be controlled using PC control systems and controllers incorporating sensors, timers and relays.

Stacking beacons are essential for manufacturing environments as well as places where process and machine operation take place due to their instant and easy understanding, their durability and their ability to minimise wastage time on a production line.

Is Factory Automation Necessary?

Automation is a process used for mass production of a product and in recent years, as technology has advanced, has been used more and more in factories. The use of machinery in this process results in a higher output of goods.

Automation in factories has become more than an obligation due to the high productivity it creates, most companies now see this as a must. Although the initial start up would be costly, it benefits in the long run as it reduces leadtime and costs by manufacturers having their own machinery onsite. It also helps to reduce human error and combined with modern technology, makes it easy to make the slightest change to a product with little interference to the workers also on site. Contrary to some people’s belief that machines are taking human jobs, this is not the case, in fact there are times when more jobs are created because of the companies increase in productivity and competitiveness.

Below shows a few pros and cons of factory automation:

ProsCons
Higher volume of productionLarge initial investment
Increased repeatability and accuracyUnpredictable costs for maintenance
Reduction in production timeMore pollution is generated

Technology is rapidly changing our world, whether it be in the business field, education, medicine, or in the field of industry and manufacturing. Having well-functioning and high technology equipment is very important in finishing every task and assisting in the production of goods and services. It is undeniable that this process is important in improving speed, accuracy and in the long run, the image of the company and the company’s reputation.

Modular Stacking Beacons

DG Controls Modular Stacking Beacons are suited for a range of applications but are particularly ideal for multi-status signalling applications and commonly used on machinery to draw attention to fault conditions and warning messages.

The towers are easily assembled as they have a simple twist and click locking mechanism. The vertical interlocking system incorporates the electrical connections enabling the end user to assemble a choice of tower simply and quickly. Each tower can be made to 6 modules high and be mix and matched to have a sounder module, LED module or xenon module. Alternatively, they can also be used as a single indicator; the modular construction of these towers allows the end user to add or take modules away to suit the required needs at each station.

Another benefit of the modular construction is it allows quick removal of the units for maintenance purposes which is better for minimising disruption.

Available in 8 mode multi-function LED, xenon strobe and sounder; the tower has a wide range of modes and colours meaning they can be easily used for many different applications.
