Indicator & Warning Light

In the world of industrial machinery, it is often necessary to warn people working around that machinery that an area is unsafe. Warning lights are ideal for this purpose and suppliers can be found using A typical warning light may blink or rotate in a strobe like fashion in order to ensure that it is noticed. Such lights may be found above a door that, for the moment, is unsafe to open. This kind of light will likely also be found on moving machinery and vehicles, such as fork lift trucks.

Often when working with industrial machinery, a simple warning light does not provide enough information. In such instances, an indicator light is used. An indicator light - sometimes referred to as a "stack light" - is a series of stacked lights of different colours, similar to the average set of traffic lights. The most typical configuration, in keeping the traffic lights comparison, is a stack containing red, green, and amber lights. Green means the machine is inactive at present and safe to work around. Red means that the machine is either operating or is about to operate, and that it is not safe to be within the working area. The amber indicator light will typically have a number of functions. In situations where the machinery being operated has detected a problem, such as a safety sensor detecting movement, the machine will stop and the amber light will activate to let the operator know there is a problem. Similarly, in CNC (computer numerical control) machines, it is sometimes necessary to "teach" the computer certain aspects of its task. The amber light will often flash to indicate it is in "learn" mode. Industrial machinery, and all the tools and accessories that accompany it, are constantly changing and evolving. can help traders in this sector stay informed and up to date.
