May your days be merry and bright...7 colors in one LED!

It's that time of the year!  Lights are being strung over street poles, houses, even the desks here at MWA so it's natural that my thoughts would turn to writing a blog about lighting.  We have so many great options for tower lights, beacons, call center systems and andon systems! 

One of the newest is the NE-M1-CL7-B0953 from Patlite.  This 7-color in one LED beacon is truly outstanding. This 57mm, IP66/67 makes this light ideal for wet and dusty environments.  Places to use this include conveyor lines and AGVs.  Read more about this colorful new beacon here!

What Is Andon?

When I first heard the term 'andon' I thought it was a brand of something. Turns out, it is simply a term used for something visual that indicates machine, manufacturing or process status. Andon products are common with a buzzer to alert to a change in status. 

Where did the term 'andon' originate? It is derived from a Japanese term for a type of paper lantern. 

When I read the description, I instantly think 'light towers'. Marshall Wolf Automation has a number of andon options for your machines and production lines!

A few of our andon products that you might be interested in include:

Patlite VSST - manually controlled LED light tower

Werma WIN -  low cost wireless monitoring system

Our in-house tech support is readily available to help you find the best andon system for your application!
