Increasing Production Line Efficiency
Using Wireless Q45 Sensors and EZ-LIGHTs, the customer created a notification system.
Each production area has one switch box and one tower light connected to the input on a Wireless Q45 Sensor with dry contact inputs. When a manager or technician is needed on the production line, an employee flips a switch.
If a manager is needed on the production line, the operator flips the manager switch. A tower light installed near the managers is connected to the Gateway’s outputs. The tower lights indicate which production line needs a manager’s attention. At the same time, the tower light installed at that production line also lights up.
The colors of each of the tower lights are assigned to indicate the need for a technician (red), manager (yellow).
Using the tower light notification system reduces the need for technicians or managers to constantly check each production line.
