Call for Parts at a Furniture Manufacturer
The notification system for each line consists of a K50 Illuminated touch button, a K30 Illuminated touch button, a color position on a signal tower light, one PM8 Gateway, and two PM8L Nodes.
The operator requests parts by touching the K50. This turns on the K50, the K30 in the fork lift cab, and the signal tower light line’s color. The fork lift operator acknowledges the request by touching the K30 mounted in the fork lift, turning off all the lights.
The operators see their request has been received. The K30, K50, and tower light are all tied together with Banner’s SureCross PM series radios; there is no need for an external logic device. The logic, latch input with a reset line, is built into the K50 light.
K50 Series touch buttons combine a large, bright indicator with solid-state, touch-activated switching capability, ideal for lean manufacturing and bin-picking operations.
