WERMA Signaltechnik is offering a simple WIN (Wireless information Newtork) wireless monitoring system for machines, equipment and manual work stations that is quite different from traditional complex monitoring systems.

Wireless monitoring

A signal tower serves as the interface to which is fitted a transmitter unit – plug and play – which will then transmit status changes to a receiver plugged in to a PC. The status change data from all transmitters is collected safely and stored in SQL.

An Ethernet master receiver means that it will no longer be necessary to connect the master receiver to a local PC as is the case now. The Ethernet master receiver is simple to configure and plugged in to an available Ethernet socket in your operation and thus transfers data simply and securely to the database.

You can link and network your machines and equipment in a logical way in the WIN software and use then WIN ‘slave control’ to issue commands as required. Start or stop a machine to be more energy efficient, for example, or use a ‘head of line’ function to visualise the status of the operation. The licence-free software uses a logic module to support all of the transmitters in the network and to generate the commands.

Key benefits

  • The wireless system is easy to install or even retrofit. Without the need for hard wiring and cabling it is easy to monitor even remote areas.
  • The WIN software is displayed on very simple yet comprehensive screen views that are simple and intuitive to use. In this way you can obtain a complete overview of your operation. Disruption to production can be identified quickly and the reasons analysed retrospectively.  
  • The transmission range between the Ethernet master receiver and client PC is unlimited. The location of the receiver can be optimised and the need for additional costly PCs becomes unnecessary.
  • The new hardware ‘slave control’ will not only transmit data but will also control machinery and equipment.

WERMA is the leading manufacturer of a wide range of Beacons and Sounders and accessories, often referred to as stack lights, signal towers and Andon systems. Products are designed and made at the HQ in Germany and the full range is available from its UK operation based in Wellingborough.

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.

The full range of products can be found on www.werma.co.uk where an Eshop facility is available for all major credit cards.

All WERMA products are manufactured to strictly controlled quality standards (DIN EN ISO 9001:2000).
