Patlite signal towers

14 June, 2011

Omron has expanded it's product portfolio to include four new ranges of high quality machine signal towers, through a new collaboration with Patlite Corporation of Japan. Since 1947, Patlite has been at the forefront in developing and innovating signaling technology, utilising advanced LED and audible technology in their products. The new signal tower ranges compliment Omron's existing product portfolio and reinforces Omrons total machine solution philosophy.

Signal towers

Signal towers act as a direct interface for operators to determine machine operation conditions. They provide vital information to operators to signal machine stop or errors and allow operators to act and resolve issues quickly. Fast and efficient action can often improve machine efficiency and often helps with reducing the number of operators on a production line, thereby reducing costs. 

Product Line-up

Omron provide four ranges of Patlite signal towers, allowing the best choice between performance and cost effectiveness.
  • LU5 - 50mm dia, modular type, advanced LED and alarm option
  • LU7 -  70mm dia, modular type, advanced LED and alarm option
  • MP/MPS - Super slim 30mm dia, pre-assembled with 1m cable
  • LME - 60mm dia, cost effective, pre assembled with 3m cable and alarm option 

Advanced LED technology

Patlite's advanced LED and reflector technology, provides enhanced visability from any direction and distance. The superior technology allows operators to determine machine conditions from long distances and from any position, allowing a fast response and reduced machine downtime.

Easy installation

Both modular types of signal tower (LU5 & LU7) incorporate a unique wiring system which simplifies electrical installations. All terminals are colour coded and are not dependant on the stack position of the specific LED coloured module. A full range of accessories are also offered, including mounting brackets and poles to simplify mechanical installation. 

Audible Alarm

Models which include built in audible alarms operate at up to 90db at 1m, providing clear audible warning to operators. The units also offer two user selectable alarm types, which enable operators to differentiate between units mounted in close proximity. A volume control is also provided to allow adjustment in different environmental conditions.
