Werma publishes a handbook on “Signal technology for industry”

29 March 2018

This comprehensive guide and reference book contains much valuable technical information and “know how”.

Many process or status changes are signalled simply and clearly by the deployment of signal devices – whether it is the opening and closing of access/exit points, a machine fault or a change in status on an automated manufacturing line. Nowadays however signal devices not only warn and advise optically and audibly locally but are also able to communicate intelligently with one another through the use of modern networking capabilities.

Werma has published a guide to “Signal technology for industry” as part of the Dictionary of Technology series which gives the technically interested or even casual reader a complete overview and basic knowledge of the subject matter. The reference book is full of technical information and explanations as well as many practical examples. The reference book is aimed not only at the industrial user in manufacturing and trade but also at students and apprentices.

Content: Covers the use of signal technology to optimise processes and improve efficiency

After a general introduction to the subject the reader is then given a detailed overview of the technicalities and functions of industrial signal devices. A detailed explanation of the different types of signals and their meaning together with the difference between the optical and audible signal devices is given. The chapter on “Applications” details examples of the use of signal devices in many industrial applications like, for example; machines and equipment, control panels, manufacturing lines in the automotive and logistics industries, packing and despatch and  building automation to name but a few.

In addition the reader will gain a comprehensive insight into the world of digitalisation through the innovative wirelessly networked systems from Werma. Finally some examples of “best practice” applications will show the enormous benefits of signal technology.
