I am seriously excited about the new Smart Light. It will revolutionize how we automate and interface with people working in the manufacturing environment. If you didnt watch this video… you need to watch this video.
Even if you don’t know what a stack light is, you will want one of these for your discotec to light it up!
Operating on the open communication protocol IO-Link that I have discussed in previous posts, I think this single part number will improve the factory for:
- an operator wanting to know when to refill a feederbowl, position a part, or empty a full output bin
- a maintenance guy needing to know what cell is causing the machine downtime
- a plant manager wanting to know the machine output, speed, productivity
If you want more information on how this works visit the Smart Light webpage.
