Add an industrial signaling tower

How I can add an industrial signaling tower (Light and alarm). in order to follow up on robot stops in the plant.


Welcome to the forum!

There are many ways you can add a signal tower.
A lot depends on your setup.

you could simply use discrete IO and wire the Robot Outputs directly to the Tower
you can configure some of the outputs to turn on or off when In alarm / Estop see the manual that came with the Robot for instructions on haw to configure the I/O.

you can get Modbus connective towers and setup Modbus fieldbus.

If you have a PLC connected use that PLC to monitor the Robot etc and control from there.

Did you have a specific signal tower in mind?

If you can share a little more about what equipment you have and what you want to achieve, that would help.
