July 24, 2018 — Rockwell Automation introduces the Allen-Bradley ControlTower 856T 70 mm Tower Light system. This system incorporates brighter LED illumination and a broad offering of visual and sound technologies all in a 70 mm diameter housing. The ControlTower 856T is capable of accommodating up to seven modules in the same stack, offering users the ability to monitor more machine and process conditions in a single device.This modular design allows the ControlTower 856T system to meet a range of signaling applications.
The tower light features push-in terminal blocks in the base and internal DIP switches inside the light and sound modules that enable engineers to configure operation modes. Engineers can choose from a range of sounds that help alert operators on a machine’s status or condition. These sound options include multi-tone piezoelectric, multi-tone transducer technologies.
The ControlTower 856T system also includes non-stackable, beacon-shaped light modules for those applications that require a low profile signaling device but want to use the same mounting infrastructure of the tower light.
The IP66/67-rated system can be used in tough environmental conditions and in an extended operating temperature (up to 70 degrees Celsius). To meet global requirements, the system is available in 24V AC/DC and 120/240V AC. The product line is available as separate components or as a pre-configured, factory-assembled stack light for flexibility.
