The TS-Ad tower is an alarm device intended for use in automatic control systems to generate optical or acoustic-optical signals. The product is intended for use by the industrial automatic control manufacturers – to signal machine operation statuses.
A TS-Ad signal tower is a modified version of the WS-Ad tower. Modification is based on changing the method of controlling the alarm signal trigger inputs. In contrast to WS-Ad towers, the user can control the inputs in the PNP or NPN standard, depending on the control system available. The alarm has control inputs for each colour of the optical signal, the acoustic signal and a COM terminal. The COM terminal can be connected both to the power supply voltage (NPN control) and to ground (PNP control). Depending on the selected control mode, the generation of the alarm signal involves the connection of the control input to +24 V DC (for PNP) or to GND (for NPN). The alarm signal is active for as long as the control input is active.
The TS-Ad tower consists of a plastic enclosure, electronic circuit, optical system with LEDs, ground mounting element. Optical part of the device is made using a light diffusion technology – this enables even lighting of the entire surface area of the light shade. TS-Ad tower is manufactured in two versions: with two or three optical signal types. Versions are factory installed in a specific order:
- for two colours – red/green from the top,
- for three colours – red/yellow/green from the top.
User cannot change the order of the colours. TS-Ad tower is provided with an acid-resistant steel mounting plate (straight and angled mount with M12 industrial connector). Optionally, the device can be equipped with a sound module for generating acoustic alarm signals.
To flat surfaces, with a straight or angled mount.
