Indicate several statuses with just one signal device: The compact Installation Beacon 240 combines up to seven colours in a single beacon

Compact and bright all round: Multicolour 240 Beacon

With its new LED Installation Beacon Multicolour 240, WERMA now offers a compact signal device with up to seven colours in a single beacon: red, yellow, green, white, blue, violet und turquoise. A tricolour version is available as an alternative, combining the most common colours, red, yellow and green, in one signal device. This makes it possible to signal several different situations with just one device! The beacon can also be supplied in combination with an attention-grabbing buzzer. This compact signal device is the perfect choice if installation space is limited. It can signal faults or statuses at the control console of a machine, in the machine housing or on control cabinets, for example.

The quick and easy way to create the perfect signalling solution: EvoSIGNAL

With EvoSIGNAL, the new and user-friendly modular standard system for signalling, it has never been easier to find the right signal device: “The ideal signalling product is easily put together in just three steps: Select the size – specify the type of signalling – choose the type of assembly – done! This makes it easy to choose a product and avoids mistaken purchases when selecting a suitable signalling solution”, says Winfried Huber, WERMA’s Head of Sales in Germany. With three different size categories (Mini/Midi/Maxi) in combination with optical and acoustic signalling options and assembly adapters, the new products from WERMA now cover all areas of application.

Live in action: Process-optimisation systems

In Atlanta, WERMA will also present ready-made solutions that make Industry 4.0 Digitisation and Networking tangible, accessible and ready for implementation in practice. Our wireless, innovative process-optimisation systems for industry, production and shipping logistics are the first in the world to network machines, manual workstations or FIFO racks via radio communication.

What is particularly exciting for the visitors is that the systems will be presented live in action at the trade fair stand and can be really put to the test:

  • SmartMONITOR for manufacturing organisations: By wirelessly networking stack lights WERMA offers a simple yet effective cost effective and easy to retro-fit alternative to traditional machine data collection systems. The system delivers quick and uncomplicated relevant data on machines, equipment and manual work-stations at just the touch of a button. Reaction time to issues can be reduced, the manufacturing process optimized and the user will no longer be unaware of downtime and disruptions. All the activities monitored are detailed in easy-to-produce reports which can contribute to lasting improvement measures to the processes being made.
  • AndonSPEED for the warehouse: Ideal for warehouse operations, this design has a unique, intelligent and innovative call-for-action system. Not only are disruptions to the process indicated by the Andon lights immediately and clearly this data is also collected wirelessly and documented thereby enabling further analysis of unproductive time. Response to disruptions and downtime will save time long-term. The wirelessly networked system will also provide a central control station overview of activities and can send e-mails calling for action automatically.
