Rockwell Automation is introducing the Allen-Bradley ControlTower 856T 70mm Tower Light system. This new system incorporates brighter LED illumination and a broad offering of visual and sound technologies all in a 70mm diameter housing. The ControlTower 856T is capable of accommodating up to seven modules in the same stack, offering users the ability to monitor more machine and process conditions in a single device.
This new modular design allows the ControlTower 856T system to meet the widest range of signalling applications with a reduced number of components.
Alvaro Sanchez, product manager, Rockwell Automation says: “Our new tower light helps engineers achieve faster time to market due to the reduced number of components they need to select. Users may also see a lower total cost of ownership due to the scalable visual and audible options and the ability to monitor more machine conditions with a single tower light.”
The tower light features push-in terminal blocks in the base and internal DIP switches inside the light and sound modules that enable engineers to easily configure operation modes. Engineers can choose from a range of sounds that help alert operators on a machine’s status or condition. These sound options include multi-tone piezoelectric, multi-tone transducer technologies.
Rockwell’s ControlTower 856T system also includes non-stackable, beacon-shaped light modules for those applications that require a low-profile signalling device but want to use the same mounting infrastructure of the tower light.
The IP66/67-rated system can be used in tough environmental conditions and in an extended operating temperature (up to 70degC). To meet global requirements, the system is available in 24V AC/DC and 120/240V AC. The product line is available as separate components or as a pre-configured, factory-assembled stack light for optimal flexibility.
