Production staff, particularly within automated production areas, must often supervise large assembly lines. This often results in situations where the optical signal is out of the machine operator’s line of sight. In situations such as these optical-audible signal devices offer an ideal solution: the audible signal can be used to supplement the optical warning and ensure that operator responds. In other cases, an audible warning signal can go unnoticed in areas with high ambient noise levels and the supplementary optical alarm delivers an effective solution.
A successful combination: the new optical-audible 43x signal devices
WERMA has expanded its range of optical-audible signal devices with the addition of the new 43x series. The products offer a wide choice of light effects ranging from a light-intense LED permanent light, a powerful LED rotating light or a flexible combined version with LED permanent/flashing/EVS light effects. As an audible supplement, users have the choice of a multi-tone sounder or a horn.
The optical and audible signals can be triggered separately to provide users with the option of activating just one signal type or both at the same time to generate a maximum level of awareness. In addition to versions for base mounting, the signal devices are also available with a practical integrated mounting bracket.
Highly durable and maintenance-free
The optical component of the new combinations uses the latest, innovative LED technology. This technology ensures that users benefit from a wide range of benefits such as enhanced resistance to vibrations, a high light intensity and a long life duration of up to 50,000 hours. The combined LED permanent/flashing/EVS version enables three different light effects to be externally triggered.
The multi-tone sounder offers 32 different tones as well as the option of triggering one tone externally. The sound output can be individually set by the user up to 112dB. The electronic horn provides a long life duration of up to 5,000 hours.
iF product design award for outstanding design
The new WERMA 43x signal device range has won the coveted iF product design award 2012. With its innovative and unique design, the attractive signal devices stood out in a highly-qualified, internationally competitive field. For over 58 years the iF product design award has been a globally respected brand for design excellence.
With this latest award, WERMA signal devices have again been recognised for their outstanding design quality. The products have repeatedly distinguished themselves through their appealing design, and for this reason been awarded internationally coveted prizes such as the red dot design award and the iF Award.
