Ifm electronic launches versatile signal tower

Leading automation specialist ifm electronic now offers a landmark new product in the truest sense. Their new DV range of light towers signal a new departure for ifm into output devices, introducing innovation to the product as a matter of course, as well as very competitive pricing.

The sleek DV light towers from ifm electronic are supplied in one unit designed for easy installation, no assembly required. All colour combinations and sequences are programmed remotely, so fully flexible control of all signals can be provided via the PLC if needed.   There are three light modes, whereby firstly any one of the five segments is switched on or off, secondly the colour of each segment selected and/or flashed, or lastly an analogue mode of moving light.  A loud acoustic signal with seven settings is also available as an option.

Visibility is key: along with bright modern RGB LED light sources, the housing highlights the display against external illumination using contrasting dark plastic.  The smooth housing surface is easy to keep clean, too.

Besides the remotely configurable version, (over IEC61131-9 IO-Link) a standard version using a setting button can be supplied.

Ifm is committed to working closely with its customers to develop products which precisely match their needs, and the company provides expert, readily accessible technical support to help users maximise the benefits they gain from ifm products.
