LD6A SignaLights utilize LED technology to provide a bright solution for supervising workstations or indicating the status of a process. These light towers have a unique ellipse lens shape and modern design, which uses a contrast of illuminated and non-illuminated areas to provide sharper illumination and increased visibility of status.
Optional clear lenses provide a sharper contrast to help avoid confusion about whether a signal is on or off. Lenses are also available in red, yellow, blue, green and pure white, which work with 24V DC base units.
All LD6A light towers come prewired and preconfigured, eliminating time-consuming wiring. All colored tiers come with color-coded wires, ready-to-operate right out of the box without additional assembly and wiring. All units also come with mounting screws and washers.
MicroSmart FC6A Plus CPU exceeds the competition with premium features including 2060 digital I/O, 511 analog I/O, Bluetooth communication, FTP Client/Server protocol, SD memory for data logging, dual Ethernet ports and the WindEDIT Lite App for iOS and Android. Now, with the introduction of BACnet/IP protocol, users can expect even more.
BACnet stands for "Building Automation and Control Networking Protocol". A communication standard for building networks and equipment, this protocol has been standardized for interoperability between systems built by different manufacturers. Conforming to BACnet allows equipment and systems that use the IDEC MicroSmart FC6A Plus, such as HVAC, lighting, security and peripheral equipment, to be connected and monitored using a common method. Best of all, with BACnet there's no extra hardware or added cost.
With a quick firmware upgrade, available in Automation Organizer (AO) version 3.12.00 and WindLDR version 8.9.0, BACnet/IP is now supported on embedded Ethernet Port #1 of the MicroSmart FC6A Plus CPU. Configuring BACnet/IP on the FC6A Plus CPU is simple and intuitive, so download the latest AO and experience the latest innovation from IDEC MicroSmart FC6A!
