The standard transmitter unit supplied with the WIN wireless monitoring system transmits the status change in the Andon light to the WIN software, allowing you to collect machine or workstation performance data. Now the new Slave Control receiver unit offers a command function for the first time.

WERMA WIN system

Using simple rules in the WIN software, the Slave Control receiver allows you to remotely activate individual lights on an Andon light tower, according to the status of monitoring Andon lights out in the production area. In this way, a supervisor at the end of the line can be immediately notified by a single repeater Andon light located in his line of vision, when any of the Andon lights on multiple production lines change status. This ensures a prompt response to local problems, and increased productivity. 

When Slave Control receives commands to change the output of attached Andon lights, it is also able send these outputs to external switched terminals. By using these outputs, external systems can receive control signals according to the status of the Andon lights on machines and workstations in the production area.  

So, as examples, a machine could be started if one or more other machines went into an error status, or a process control action could be triggered directly when a series of other machines have completed their processes, or a system could be shut down to save energy, if other machines are not in use. 

The new Slave Control transmitter is compatible with all Werma WIN monitoring systems and is fitted to a WERMA signal tower stack in the same way as a standard WIN Slave transmitter. In your application it is possible to have any mix of standard WIN Slave towers and WIN Slave Control towers, to suit the requirements of your local operation.

The range consists of signal towers and beacons available with both LEDs and filament bulbs together with a comprehensive range of sounders; sirens, buzzers and horns in a wide range of sound output levels.

Principal function is to provide optical and audible warning of machine fault or machine shop danger where such beacons and sounders are commonly installed.

Andon lights, as beacons are now commonly referred to, are often used as “call for action” systems to improve efficiency of for example line side supply of components. Manually operated lights alert remote departments wirelessly to resolve calls for action.

Many innovative features such as USB connectivity and wireless monitoring systems are also available.

There is also a comprehensive range of ex-proof signal products compliant with the latest ATEX directives.
